Yes, pushing developers to make unrealistic release dates is stupid.

EA is dumb for doing this, not evil mind you, just really really dumb.

in a pragmatic approach, they're fucking their own bottom line by not understanding the way games are made, because some suit who's never visited a development studio says: "you know what'll save us money? just have them make the whole game in 1/3rd the normal development time!"

that's dumb, EA is stupid when they push dates like this.

and it's all because they got super butthurt by looking at CoD sales, and the green envy monster just destroyed the MoH franchise.

EA is dumb for doing shit like this, not evil. different. things.

No, they're evil because their motivation is quick returns for minimal output. They know what happens when you shove unfinished games out the door. They're not dumb, just greedy, which makes them evil.

you're confusing evil with short-sighted impulsive behavior. trust me, these two ideas can co-exist as separate things, i'm an expert.

EA is a private company, who's only reason to exist is to make money, welcome to capitalism. if that's evil to you then may i suggest one of the other successful market ideologies on the planet.

for them to stumble in their effort to make money by wanting to make more money faster isn't evil, it's just as you said, greed.

you can't see things for their true nature and still judge them as good and evil like some omnipotent deity. there are evil things in this world, we're not short of that. you mock the really bad shit when you put videogame publishers holding unrealistic launch dates for their products in the same league as people who spread hate and fear and war. you're just using hyperbole to try and get your point across, it carries no weight.
