Because idiots don't know how to run a business and complain about everything they're clueless about.

part of the reason is that they have ruined many developers and cancel games just because its not a game they can turn into a yearly franchise.


this is another thing I see alot, now they have put some companes out of business(so have other devs) and that always sucks but you never hear of the opposite of this argument and how EA has programs in place to help smaller devvs out, to help indie devolpers. They have published alot of smaller gamers this gen, alot, hundreds upon hundreds over the years. They have heped alot...alot of smaller devs overe the years, more then they have closed down. We never hear of this part, only the negative when talking about EA, why is that? Is it cause alot of ppl really arent that well informed even though they think they are? Is it easier to just be a hater then having knowlege of the whole bigger picture?



Yeah and why does ea do that? So they can invest a tiny amount of money, and if the ip takes off they own it and make a 100x their initial investment.

If publishers actually cared about the creative abilities of devs, theyd let the devs retain the ip rights of the works they created that the publisher itself had nothing to do with.

But they dont do that do they?

Because they have butchered bioware.


Making the greatest sci-fi franchise ever is certainly a horrific thing.


Considering the fiasco that was the mass effect 3 and, considering how bad the second dragon age was, also lets not forget about The Old republic which was a huge flop

And they will continue to do those bad practices, you know why? Because people will keep buying their games regardless of what they do. It's a business, all they care is about the money at the end.

Most people liked mass effect three and every bioware game ever gets called crap by its fans for not being the same as the last one they made.

ME3 was only a "fiasco" for people that had never played a Bioware game before and thought their choices would impact the finale. That's not how Bioware works.

The second Dragon Age was nothing special. And as I have said before people shouldn't expect Bioware to know how to make sequels. If anything the game should have been given to Obsidian to ruin.

All MMOs that aren't WoW flop eventually.

Stop blaming EA for problems with a company that existed for a long time. And stop blaming Bioware for failing in the MMO market.

its funny how the average ignorant user here is all doom and gloom and knows everything...yet the actual companies this is for sure seem to like it or the help etc...but you know more then anyone ncluding all the actual parties involved.....lol

Also gaming is a business first and foremost, if you were actually aware of what these programs offered and did etc, you would see in almost every ase ts a win/win for both parties which is wh y alot of smaller dev teams continue to use this program set up by EA....but ignorant user #229927 knows everything lol...

its funny you cant see your hate is so strong your just being completely ignorant and the more you actual do some research the more you realise how silly being a tyypical ignorant hater really is lol..


I mean its all doom and gloom yet smaller devs or indie ds continue to use this program but again you know so much more thn everyone involved lol...pls hater
