I see a lot of threads around here that talk about "The cancer of gaming".


I've decided that EA is the cancer of gaming, or at least it's a good representative of what's really wrong with game developers these days (or more appropriately, the marketers for game companies and their executives.)


I think we should take a year and give EA no money at all. Buy no games from them. Let them be released and then wait until next year if you must have them.


Think about it, if all gamers did this, think of the message it would send? I bet you might even get some public apologies.

Now that Mass Effect has finished its course (lol) there shouldn't be any must get titles coming through the pipeline.

They're not releasing anything I'm interested in, so I guess I do in some way.

No,I don't boycott Publishers or Developers.I don't care who publishes or develops a game as long as I enjoy the game.

Boycotting does nothing, when I find a way to get EA shutdown and its employees fired I'll let you know.

I guess i kind of am just because they aren't releasing anything i'm interested in. Loved the first 2 Dead Space games but i'm not liking what i'm hearing about 3.

Other than that i've kinda been semi boycotting them ever since they took their games off steam. Like i picked up battlefield 3 for next to nothing and haven't even picked up ME3, which i will do so when i can pick it up for ten or so dollars.

If these games were both available on Steam I would have purchased both at full price.
