I have a love for many of the developers that EA has absorbed, so I'm pretty biased in their favor but they are genuinely out of touch. I don't think they're evil or anything; they just don't seem to understand how to cultivate consumer loyalty or advertise properly.

I mean, they got the Mass Effect 3 MP and Extended Cut DLC right, giving it for free to smooth over some of the bad feelings that were created by the game in it's core state. But then they never actually officially acknowledged that there was a problem in the first place (I didn't think the endings were that bad, but they definitely needed improvement), which just made things worse.

Another example: they take Star Wars: The Old Republic and make it free-to-play. Given how large and expansive it is, that's pretty fantastic. The story content (easily the best part of the game) is 100% free. But it's full of bizarre restrictions that are actually noted as such. For instance, the game desperately tries to convince you to subscribe because otherwise you'll get reduced XP, when the situation is more the opposite. Subscribing will help you level up faster, and is a benefit as such but it's actually pretty damn easy to stay on top of the leveling as a F2P player. Instead of advertising the sub as a bonus, it's advertised as a necessity, which would most likely get people to just stop playing rather than commit actual money.

Final reference: The Battlefield 4 situation. It's not a bad game by any stretch. There are tons of multiplayer games that have awful launches, followed by months of intensive patching leading to a product actually worth playing. They even somewhat acknowledged the issue, and then proceeded to make it clear via a few posts on Twitter that people within EA basically had no idea what was going on, followed by resuming DLC releases before actually fixing the game.

TL;DR: EA isn't evil, but damn they have to be one of the stupidest companies I've seen.

You have a love for the Developers EA has absorbed... and that makes you like them?


A company being absorbed by EA is practically a death sentence.

Next up on the chopping block... Bioware!

I really liked Dragon Age 2, Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3, and Battlefield 4, all games which have supposedly been "tainted" by EA. Come at me with those red thumbs, you bandwagoning faggots.

As much as I dislike EA I actually hate Activision more. At least EA let the studios they buy continue their own franchises unlike Activision where once they buy you you're either working on Call of Duty or ****** movie cash-in

If you don't like paying that much, then dont ******* pay it, there are loads of other games you can play. You know there are going to be DLC that has to be bought when you buy the standard game.
