I do get it, hell I've given EA plenty of my own shit over the years as well, but it doesn't get old to you when people use the same tired excuses to bash EA for the sake of it?

Has nothing to do with this trend of yours to pull the "Boosnews is so negative and unfair!!" crap that people tend to do when they don't like the discussion content. It's being discussed because its in the news and its news because they keep making boneheaded decisions. EA had good press for a few years when they were making original IP again and started actually caring about their ports. People don't do it with Activision because there is a lot less of it to talk about. When they were murdering Guitar Hero and not patching fucked up ports people were bitching plenty.

Take Origin for example, it's essentially steam but people hate it and swear to never use it simply because EA's name is attached.

Different topic for a different discussion. I think EA has given people plenty of reason to distrust a digital client effort though whereas Valve has historically done the opposite. Acting as if everyone should just ignore the history of the companies behind the products themselves is not only unrealistic but poor consumer decision making. So while I don't personally care much one way or the other about Origin, it's easy to see why some people do.

See I think I just look at the industry as a whole, different than the lot of you, I don't view Valve as any better to their customers than EA, their titles to me aren't very good games, TF2 for example I actually might have been interested in had they stuck to how it was going to look initially rather than the cartoon joke it looks like now, and they break promises often, "Episodic gaming will help us work faster" Yeah Gabe hows that HL episode 3 working out?

Or how they trumpet their precious steam sales where it's always the same handful of titles that have been on sale 10 times already.

I suppose it all comes down to perception, every publisher out there cares about 1 thing, money. None of them, including precious Valve, gives 2 shits about the customer base.
