DRM and Origin ?

★ Novice

I wish to purchase Dead Space 2 and Crysis 2, which are offered for sale on your site.  I do not, however, buy games with any form of DRM.  Do these games contain DRM?  I gather that something called Origin is installed on the pc. What exactly does this consist of and what is its function ? What is installed ? Can it be easily removed when finished with the game ?

Yes. EA has a DRM. It makes me angry.

@Chaos_1138 Steam has DRM in plenty of the games they sell and so does uPlay or battle net. The only DRM free store is GOG. So i take it that you buy only from GOG?!

I do not work for EA and i am not associated with the company in any way. I am a player just like you, trying to help wherever i can.I will not answer to any unsolicited PM.
