People voted for them as the worst company yet buy their games anyway.
It's hard not to. EA has acquired a lot of very good studios and game developers over the past few years with a lot of games near and dear to people's hearts. The fact that they screwed them up bothers people, yeah, but people are loath to avoid game series they really want to play and game studios they really want to support.

It's not that EA is making all bad games; they still make good ones. They wouldn't be a company otherwise, because they'd have gone under long ago, true of any other company on the list. It's their practices and involvement in the industry that gets people riled up more than anything else. It's that things could be much better, not that the status quo is good enough.

What is up with you dude? Why are you so obsessed with me?
Also where am I trolling? I just stated the obvious people complain about EA everyday yet these are the same people that run day 1 to buy their games.
Bunch of hypocrites, if they want EA to train instead of crying over the internet they should just not buy their games. <_<
You guys need to learn what a troll is, just because someone doesn't agree with you does not mean they're trolls.

It's not that EA is making all bad games; they still make good ones. They wouldn't be a company otherwise, because they'd have gone under long ago, true of any other company on the list.

yes EA still makes good games and i dont really dont have a problem with them because they didnt do what disney did recently and shut down lucasarts...fire all the staff AND CANCEL two VERY promising games(most notably Star Wars 1313) and condeming them to limbo(well basically there gone) and that gets my blood boiling shame on you disney!

What are some of the practices that EA does makes them the worse.
Online Passes? DLC? I'm sure EA isn't the only one who does this practice.

lol, I'm not used to the new news set-up yet. All I read was the comments down to the bottom, and didn't notice that there are now pages for it. So the rest of the thread I pretty much missed pre-posting. D=

Darn you for destroying my blissful ignorance!

The only one I need to state is that Vega is not a love interest in ME3 and that should be enough right there.

EA, worst company ever. Give me beefboy!

DLC? They do some good DLC. See:Dead Space 3 Awakened. Primarily its these:
Online Passes (These guys iirc started this practice. Prove me wrong if you can) Dont spare me the common bullshit about "You didnt pay full price yada yada." We didnt back in the previous generations so what makes it any different to this generation?
Always Online DRM
Microtransactions in non free to play games.
The SimCity 5 Launch
Buying Companies and corrupting them too.

I dont blame the yarrs for yarring the games that have Online DRM. My Broadband from Virgin Media cuts out alot because they're incompetant fools. How can i play SimCity 5? I cant? Well *bleep*, I have to deal with it. No thank you. This is why i keep away from PC gaming.

Why not?
You didn't pay the full price you don't get 100% of the content.

In the older gens we also had 2 hour games. We should go back to that as well? Eh?

Always online you can blame the piraters like Yay4sean they do it because people pirate their games. If people like him didn't do this they wouldn't have done this. I don't blame them for it.

quote CTTR champion
The SimCity 5 Launch
They gave out free games to people who bought SimCity at launch no?

You don't have to buy microtransactions.
Microtransactions are there for the people who want to get items,clothes,etc. faster. YOU don't have to pay you can usually unlock those stuff in game for FREE.

They do it because people pirate their games even if they don't have Online DRM. it's 100% their faults.

Actually, I wouldn't have purchased the game in the first place, so they wouldn't be losing any money from it. But like I said, I don't even pirate games, EVEN when they have DRM, just because I care that much about the game developers. I certainly purchase less of their games though because I don't feel like dealing with it.

So, your argument against "people who pirate like me" is somewhat flawed. Obviously, some people pirate everything regardless of whether there is DRM or not. Blame them. Quit harassing people and let's end this silly discussion. It's not worth spamming up Neoseeker's comments/threads with these arguments.

I love how he addresses Origin hate by saying "Some claim there’s no room for Origin as a competitor to Steam. 45 million registered users are proving that wrong". Now think about articles like this (www.joystiq.com/2011/08/06/battlefield-3-wont-be-sold-on-steam-ea-claims-service-restric/) tell me that we had a choice all along when purchasing EA published games (BF3, SimCity, Dragon Age 2). Haha.

But I get it; CEO praises own company's products and services.

Since im on my xbox i wont quote individually. Too much effort.

So what if we didnt pay full price? People may not be able to cough over £40/$60 each time they want a game. Its not their fault. Also, even if we pay £40 we dont get all the content. See:On Disc DLC. So back to my previous statement.

Sure, Lets have two hour games again. At least we will get 100% of the content. People back then didnt have these arguments and i guess piracy was less common then. Of course the PS2 and Xbox had limitations but did anyone complain about the game being two hours long? No, because they enjoyed it.

I dont blame pirates for Online DRM. I mean, Its not like they'll crack it or anything. Besides, Online DRM just screams piracy.

Sure, they did give out free games but it still didnt hide the fact the launch failed.

The corruption was a lie. They make great games but EA *bleep* it up.

I agree, dont buy them but that idea should stay in the F2P & P2P online genre, not AAA games we have to pay for.

Companies should know people will pirate no matter what they do. They should give up trying to combat it because it affects their paying customers as well.

I know you believe strongly about your opinion, I accept it. How can you accept these practices that you never grew up to?

All that needs to be said on Piracy is that it's not something to solve with DRM. It's a service problem. Old news, that kind of talk was what buzzed around a lot last year before SOPA.

Gabe Newell
Notch

Though of course, that's something EA has yet to subscribe to.
