51. Re: EA Wants #1 FPS Spot Dec 3, 2009, 18:43 Krovven
Instead, the majority of their games end up being shit because they didn't give their dev teams the time or the freedom to create the world that they wanted to create.

I'm not usually one to defend EA, but changes don't happen overnight, especially when most games take years to make. EA has made a lot of good changes in the last couple of years, released some pretty good new IP's and and are continuing to make more. You can only do so much at once. But in making these changes they are also getting criticized by the same people for laying staff off, closing studios, etc. to facilitate these changes. They simply can't win with everyone.

They hardly even continue supporting released games. You can't say that about Valve.

Depends on the game, they have supported most of their games lately post release. Do you recall the uproar over the lack of L4D1 post-release support (not that I agree with that)?

Personally I don't think EA is quite as bad as they were a few years ago, and appear to be continuing to improve. But I'm still very cautious what games of theirs I buy and usually wait awhile after release to get feedback...but that can be said of most games and game companies these days.
