With the release of XONE I think the've just re-thought the whole approach.
I have games that use GFWL and have no problems with them and then some games are horrible with it. May just depend on the developers implementation. That's from a user's point of view. I have no idea what developers think of it but it can't be good compared to steamworks and whatever Orgin's equivalent is.
