    Does anyone happen to know what happens if you buy a game via Origin? I've never bought a PC game without a disc before. What if Origin folds? What if it shuts down temporarily and you need the game? Does EA give you a full image of a game you buy?
    Thanks!

    You can't even start the disk version if Origin shuts down.

    Downloading via Origin wont give you a full installation image, but you'll get all the files. To install again without downloading the whole game: Start download> Pause download> Copy the backup files downloaded before to the current downloading location> Resume download.

    But yeah, if Origin dies and EA doesn't provide any alternative, then you're [we all are] screwed.

    I believe there is an option to set so that origin keeps the install files. You should also be able to get an Origin offline installer (if that's still available).

    Then it depends on the game I guess. I know I have been able to play FIFA in the past without an internet connection, but I am not sure about it nowadays.

    New FiFA games don't have the installer. It's for only old games.

    You can play the game without internet connection. But you have to be online atleast once.

    If a company the size of EA/Origin shuts down permanently I don't think we need to worry about playing games as it'll mean President Fart got the nuclear war with North Korea he seems desperate for.

    When it comes to purchasing a video game I do personally look for the most trusted and popular brands like Best Buy, Game Stop, Instant-Gaming, Target, etc. Though the PC games from origin are very good in quality. I have recently bought FIFA 18 kaufen online. It's my Christmas gift for my brother, who is a gamer.

    Won't happen and the micro-transaction storm has already passed it seems. And even if they became vulnerable to an aggressive takeover all of the past assets would be included.
