Games Not Appearing in EA Origin Library: How to Fix?

Origin is a digital service where they distribute video games. Developed by Electronic Arts, Origin acts entirely similar to Steam, its primary competitor, for the purchase and playing of video games. Eventually, after the release of Origin, the developers started working on the platform to make it much more like their competitor, Steam. In their attempt to make their service match to those of Steam’s, Electronic Arts made their move to bring in cloud game saves, auto-patching, achievements, and cross-platform releases in 2011.

Even though the developers work restlessly on the service, it is normal that sometimes the technical aspects of the platform mess up. However, if we talk about one thing specifically, it will be the issue where games do not appear in the Origin library. Since this is something that many of the users are commonly facing, the guide below that we’ve cooked up will help you resolve it. Without further ado, let’s look at how to fix if games are not appearing in EA Origin Library.
