So, EA appears to have an absolutely terrible website for their Origin game distribution software. I went there to do one thing: download Origin, so I can play the new Dragon Age game next week. They very clearly have a "Download Origin" button on every page: great! Click that... and all I see are system requirements. I look around, I check the FAQs, I try different browsers: there is no actual Download link on the 'Download Origin' page. I ask friends, they can't find a download link either. I try the EA help desk, but they have no ticket-submission option and I'm not waiting 30 minutes to live-chat with an agent.
Finally, by going to EA's main website, I'm able to find a YouTube video showing how to install the Origin client for Mac, which if you pause at just the right time as they're hovering the cursor over a Download link, you can just make out the address: https://www.dm.origin.com/mac/download. I switch that for https://www.dm.origin.com/pc/download and finally, I'm able to download the Origin client installer.
Why couldn't they just put Dragon Age: Inquisition on Steam?
Edit: looks like they've fixed their download page, it now actually has a download link.
