All I wish to do right now is play my old Battlefield 2142 game, but Origin and EA do not wish me to be happy. 

I could just buy it again and start over, but no, I already bought it, they say.
So, Alternatively I could just jump through a million hoops to claim my own account and connect it too my origin account, but no, I am lost in the sea of system errors and activation code bullshit.
