Why is Bioware pushing online play?

Let me put it another way. With ME2 they were at a crossroads where they had a platypus of a game design that wasn't particularly great at either world it tried to exist in. They had three choices. Continue to be mediocre at straddling a line, make a streamlined story based shooter while scrapping the clunky RPG elements, or scrap the shooting in favor of a more traditional RPG format.

I could've rolled with either of the last two options. The first would've annoyed me. Realistically though, anyone who played ME1 should recognize that the shooter elements were far, far better done than the RPG trappings.

Your problem is you've spent your whole life thinking there are rules. There aren't. We used to be gorillas.

They are all shooter/RPG hybrids. They all have elements of shooters, they all have elements of RPGs.

Ea forces all games to be made with multiplayer. The ceo said so himself.


Yep, and then gives all the multiplayer DLC away for free.

Care to explain why he's forcing them to give away free multiplayer DLC? Why did ME3 and PvZ Garden Warfare have 100% free multiplayer DLC?

Stop trying to vilify EA. It's getting pretty pathetic considering even Nintendo follows EA business plans now, but it's perfectly cool when Nintendo does it.

All I have to say is that the Mass Effect 3 multiplayer is easily one of the best tacked-on multiplayer I have ever played
