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.

I'm not sure if I'm the only one thinking this, but I find it pretty "evil" to require users to pay the full price of the game (60€) and THEN to play more than the standard 8 maps, or how many there is - then require 15€ (I think it was) per extra DLC, or just 60€ for a subscription to get all the DLC over time. The DLC should either be very cheap, or just not exist at all. Valve has made a good solution to this. Make people gain cosmetic advantages, but no actual advantage + no restrictions (in terms of maps etc).

Valve massively overcharges for those cosmetic advantages. Also, I'm presuming you are talking about the Battlefield Premium service? In which case, the additional maps are only part of it, as they are more mini-expansions with weapons, modes, and whatnot. None of that gives a legitimate "advantage" to players, just more stuff to play around with. It might not be as good of a model as just releasing free stuff pretty frequently (see a company like CD Projekt or Tripwire), but it's hardly evil.

So basically you have some sort of video game Stockholm syndrome. Really, there is absolutely no reason for you to support EA in any way or be biased towards them. The developers you knew and loved are long gone, and trying to defend them is just going to kill off more talented companies and ruin their games.

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.

They say it's open world, but all they've shown are just corridors.

The combat looks like a mixture of the **** from DA2 and a crappy MMO

Not to this extent though.

Except that EA hasn't actually killed off these companies. The closest you could get to that would probably be DICE with the Battlefield 4 fiasco, and even that is slowly getting fixed. EA might not directly make companies better, but I fail to see how EA kills companies, or how BioWare is in trouble. SWTOR is raking in ********* of money, Dragon Age Inquisition looks fantastic, and they have 2 more confirmed projects in the works.

Most of these developers are simply bought out by EA having control over their stakes, this wasn't their decision to make.

EA tried to do a hostile takeover of Valve at one point (luckily failed) for example.

What? EA has killed off those companies.

Westwood is long gone, as well as Pandemic and Bullfrog.

Maxis was killed, and then EA brought the name back for a new company with no original members of Maxis.

And Dragon Age Cisquisition looks fantastic? Are you serious? Have you seen the gameplay, or the godawful writing? How about all the faggot characters being shoehorned in? Or the greasy ****** mage?
