Experienced Points Has EA's Origin Service Improved Any Over the Last Two Years?

Shamus Young:

A little over two years ago, I hammered Origin, EA's then-new digital distribution platform. I slammed it for their tiny selection, high prices, lack of indies, lack of sales, lack of marketing savvy, and a failure to leverage their existing back catalog. This is on top of the common complaints of the day, which revolved around a clunky client and a naked contempt for user privacy and security. So what's happened in the last two years? What has EA done with this platform since then? (EA, Industry)

Still a poor service in my opinion, games are way way to expensise, £60 for the Sims 4??? £55 for Titanfall when it launched???
PC games have historically been cheaper than console games, yet ea are making an effort to raise those prices to match console prices.
