I disagree to an extent. Compared to Zynga those companies may as well be saints. Which in a way was EA's point; consumers won't pay for Zynga-level crap (at least not in the long-term). EA is hoping to stay just far enough above Zynga in quality that consumers will pay, and if Zynga is crap (and it is) then EA's stuff has to be at least somewhat less crappy.
