I'm talking about Steam, that's the point. Games brought from Steam need Steam to login and open to play. This is general usage, adding your own none Steam games doesn't have anything to do with it.
The point is, games brought on Origin don't need the Origin client to run and only if you run the game inside the Origin client does it keep running, obviously.
