Let's cure some patients.
Get geared up, fans of addictive sims like 'Rollercoaster Tycoon' and 'SimCity.' Many might remember a Bullfrog Games' classic from 1997, 'Theme Hospital.' Many others might not remember the game at all, but it is nevertheless a classic worth re-discovering. But why mention it now? Well, it just so happens that EA has elected to give Origin members the game for free for a limited time. It's updated with DOSBox to run in Windows 7, 8 and so forth, and yes, it does support game saves.
As with other Origin On the House games, once the game is added to the user's Origin account, it becomes theirs from then on. Now get curing and try to figure out all of the crazy diseases that afflict the local patient base.
