Pc gaming without EA?

#1DerPancakePosted 12/1/2013 11:50:11 AM
Where would it be?

Crytek would have never achieved Crysis 1 (which was ahead of its time graphically) without the funding from EA. Battlefield would never be as big as it is today without EA. The Sims is one of the most known PC games in the world and has brought many people into PC gaming.

I think EA did more for PC gaming than what Valve would wish.

Also EA has helped Valve distribute games like Half-Life 2, Counter-strike, and the Orange Box.

Maybe... BF4 has made my head hurt.

Also take in mind the first time we got together was in Dead Space 3! an EA published game!

EA ruined PvZ. EA ruined Bioware as a whole.

EA added the inconvenience to require a second (Origin) account just to play their games, when they could have simply allowed their games to sell on the Steam store, where they could have made just as much money if not more. But they're so stubborn and greedy that they felt like they needed to compete with Valve.

They're money-hungry and anti-consumer all around. I won't boycott EA. I played ME2 not too long ago. I'll get another one of their games when I feel like it's worth my attention. But so far nothing from them has persuaded me to use Origin. Not in the least.

^ I agree all jokes aside EA is kinda ridiculous. I used to be really anti origin but so far its just okay. No where as good as steam, and it will probably never be as good as steam since EA does not allocate the proper resources to make it better.

They should of done what Ubisoft is doing, having its own client , but still have their games/dlc on steam.

Crysis 1 could have been a better game if EA hadn't rushed it out the door and put so much focus on DEM GREEEFIX.
Battlefield isn't really anything special anymore.
The best Sims is Sim City 2000.
