Damn Orestes... You can't catch a break, either you're an EA shill, or an EA hater.

I don't get all the EA hate...I mean their practices are stupid but their games are generally solid. Now someone who deserves hate is Ubisoft...they couldn't make a good game if their lives depended on it.

Battlefield 4 was/is pretty much the straw that broke the camel's back.

EA's games are generally technically competent (Battlefield 4 being a major exception), but formulaic, soulless and dull. Designed by committee and diluted down to try and appeal to as wide an audience as possible. The last EA game I bought, or had even the slightest interest in, was Mass Effect 3, and even that was a huge mistake in hindsight.

Ubisoft are just as bad for the most part when it comes to their "AAA" titles (and far less competent technically), but they do put out the odd gem along the way. Child of Light, Rayman Origins/Legends, Might & Magic X, ZombiU, Trials... even Black Flag was okay.

Most of my EA hate comes from seeing perfectly good developers ruined. They buy em up, run them into the ground until there's nothing left, and then they disband them and shrug. "Gee, this keeps happening. It's a really weird coincidence. Oh well, NEXT!".

Also, they've made some seriously anti-consumer moves in the past (like banning a guy from his own games, EVEN SINGLE PLAYER, because of something he said on a message board)...as for the other complaints (soulless, cater to the mass market), that doesn't make them horrible.. It just makes them just like all the other huge mega corporations.

EA always tries to put positive spins on "failures" though. http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/video-games/columns/experienced-points/11914-How-Electronic-Arts-Made-Dungeon-Keeper-A-Huge-Fiasco.3

While I may not agree with your opinion, I will defend to the death your right to have it.

EA games seem very much like pop songs

not very deep or original, but I'd be lying if I said I didnt enjoy some of them
