I finally got my gaming rig back from my friend; I had to travel upstate from New York City to pick it up. Anyhow, after hooking it back up, I decided to redownload some games via Steam and EA Origin. I'm currently redownloading GTA IV via Steam and made a failed attempt at redownloading Battlefield 3 via Origin, because it's no longer listed under "My Games." I knew that EA Origin had a policy by which games and/ or accounts not active for two years are deleted, but it hasn't been two years since I logged into my account. WTF? How do you guys feel about this? What if this happened to you?
EDIT: I called and was told that there was no purchase history for BF3 on that account. I know I had another account but don't recall the email I used; sometimes I create a new email just for registering to a new site. Whatever; it's only $40.00.
Despite this, EA Origins still sucks because of their policy by which they delete a customer's purchase history after two years of inactivity.
I got lucky. A friend I made through Steam gave me promo codes for Dead Space 3 and BF3. Yay me!
