I think it was EA, but I'm not sure. It's so annoying how instruction manuals are so thin nowadays that when you open the case everything would slip away.

As long as they have some sort of digital manual on the game, I couldn't care less about how small the physical manuals are.

I'm pretty sure its EA. Also, I think EA started the trend where 360 cases are made out of a flimsy plastic that reminds me of Papier-mâché. Not to save a few pennies, mind you, but to save the environment . . . because EA cares.

I kind of agree with them though. It shouldn't take animal pelts and ivory to make an instruction manual.

They go green by not printing manuals, but the price is the same. If saving the environment costs them money, they wouldn't do it.

EA and Activision.

They're also responsible for large parts of some of my game cases being missing and having recycling shaped holes cut into them.

EA. Sucks that instruction manuals are useless these days - I'd rather have to look in the book to learn the controls (and get background on the story, characters, etc.) than have to go through a mandatory and infinitely annoying training stage for a game that's just gonna hold my hand the whole time anyway.

Yes, I like having a real paper manual in my cases. It doesn't matter if I never use it I just do. What about it, gamefaqs?
