Games that EA somehow DIDN'T ruin? * Serpent's Isle (which was on the verge of being done when EA bought Origin). * Lords of Conquest (yes, EA was non-malevolent waaaaay back in the 80's) * Seven Cities of Gold (see above)
Yeah, the early EA (pre 1990?) was actually a good company. I think that was before EA went public and the desire to please shareholders became a priority. I didn't actually start hating EA until they killed off Westwood.
I loved C&C Generals/Zero Hour even though that wasn't made by Westwood, but that was probably the last EA game I really loved.
I have fond memories of playing M.U.L.E. on my Atari 800 and Seven Cities of Gold which I played on the Atari 800 and then later the Commodore 128 (in C-64 mode).
Also Strike Fleet... for a while I had an obsesssion with that game
Oh and Legacy of The Ancients... that was a great game too... I also remember buying a game called Demon Stalkers because it reminded me of Gauntlet. My mom hated that game because of the word "Demon" in the name.
And then there was Wasteland... I loved that game too (I backed Wasteland 2, but I'm still waiting to play it since I didn't back it enough to get alpha/beta access).
No I'm not trolling. The launch was pretty messed up but the game is solid.
Oh no! The city size is closer to an actual city size instead of a county or state size!
Oh no! You need to have internet to play! I'll go complain on an online message board!
Oh no, the AI is exploitable! Look how stupid it acts when i do something that you would never actually do while actually playing the game
It's a solid addition to the series.
Funny how the online only actually worked. Pirated copies did not function well at all until they removed the online requirement. The pirate sites had huge numbers the first few days after it was removed. That vocal minority showed it's true colors.
Because trolling doesn't mean saying stupid things to make yourself look foolish. You're either a shill, or you have objectively the worst taste of anyone here. That's some serious post-purchase rationalization.
I love how you always say that anyone who likes something you don't has bad taste. You never argue, you simply tell people they're wrong without ever backing up why you say it.
I don't think 9 year olds are allowed here, do you parents even know you're using the internet?
Probably not since you have to come here for attention all the time.
He's worth just ignoring. He follows whatever the crowd says to try and fit in. Just another sheep.
Claiming people are shills for liking something they don't is one of those idiotic trends he has to follow.
Criterion isn't dead. They just moved on to multiplayer-centric games (which is fine by me). NFS Most Wanted 2012 was so much fun online. Shame the community died down; you missed out on a great experience.
