I understand people not liking how EA goes about making money and if I'd known about the always-on requirement at the time, I wouldn't have preordered Simcity. However, deger's attitude is just naive.

My annoyance is with the people who kneejerk "EA bad!" for everything they do. I don't love EA. I don't particularily like EA. I agree that EA does lots of scummy things. But sometimes they do decent things, and rather than laugh at them when they do, I'd rather encourage them so they continue to do more.

Really, they are doing nothing more than what Valve did - tie their games to their distribution system. If anyone things Valve would do things any different today, they are nuts. They've put a lot of time and money into getting even 3rd party developers/publishers to tie their products to Steam.

Yes, I would consider Valve to be a "better" company than EA, but jumping over EA for doing something that you ignore in other companies just demonstrates a personal bias, not anything wrong with EA.
