Just because EA are making money by selling to the mass market doesn’t mean we have to stop disliking them. Just because we dislike them doesn’t mean we don’t realise that they are doing what they do well.
We do realise that.
But I still have no respect for them, the main reason being the way they apparently treat their employees, and the way they see buying out competition as the best and quickest way to gain marketshare.
The “grunts” in EA I respect, the people who make the big decisions I don’t respect. Simple as that. I’m not disputing that they make money or are successful.
Edit: Kyoto…..that Penny Arcade strip sums up my feelings exactly! :D
