Shouldnt this thread be entitled ‘Yet another generic EA bashing thread’?
Whether or not you have some fantastic impression about what ‘good’ games are, the truth remains that EA are offering the public what they want, and hence they are getting the sales. Yes, they are asking people to work a million and one hours, and yes, anyone capable of developing game code could get twice as much for half the hours somewhere else, but they choose not to. Yes, some elitist/purist gamers who want innovation and gameplay might not be attracted to their products, but the truth is the vast majority of people who are targetted by EA dont give a damn about those things. And EA have realised this. Why cant we?
