Even with all the trolling on this board, this is still the worst post I've read all day.

Maybe someone should post a response or question instead of just quoting it.

My response is you're a insecure little troll.

Wasn't one of her main complaints that it was too hard because she sucked at the controls? Many people liked it because of the controls. Let's say you enjoyed Mirror's Edge. Would you want someone that sucked at the game advising the creators on how to make the sequel? They also certainly don't need any advice on how to portray women, since it's one of the best examples of strong women being represented in video games.

Anita Sarkeesian being part of the development can only be a bad thing. There is nothing positive she could do for it.

Anita Sarkeesian. A controversial critic who was apparently brought in as an adviser for the Mirror's Edge sequel after criticizing it for not representing strong woman well, and being too difficult. This is despite the fact that it is one of the best examples in gaming of representing a strong woman, and it's difficulty is one of the appealing factors for it's audience.

Basically EA is saying "How can we pander to people that didn't enjoy or play our game, potentially at the expense of the audience that actually liked it?"
