Origin / EA Downloads

 I am pleasantly surprised (which admittedly does not take a lot when it comes to Electronic Arts). Downloading the two older expansion packs for Sims 3 was ridiculously cheap - in fact, even cheaper than advertised on their website.  And I get to install them 5 times, more if I uninstall. Installation is slow but automatic.  (I resent not being able to choose which disk to install to, but it does not actually matter with small stuff like this.) For the people who just want to have fun, it seems very close to perfect. Buy online, go make your favorite dinner and press play when you return. It seems unlikely, but EA may have done something right. True gamers will probably resent the idiotproofing, even more so than I, but I am not sure that is where the money is anymore.
