It never cease to amaze me the misconceptions and preconceived notions surrounding this publisher.
Gotta love the bashing. They are the number one gaming company in the world with most sales. I guess people do like them since they sell more than any other company.
They're also very good at what they do.
And if you think im joking just ask Westwood Studios.
It doesent have to say they bought them, its only a matter of time till it happens, first the contracts to make the game then they buy you out. its happened to many others and it will happen again.
I wonder which person(s) at Westwood signed the deal to get bought out by EA? Are they not just as responsible?
It seems to me that in the last number of years EA has invested millions into "innovative" or "different/creative" games. Black and White, The Sims, MotorCity Online, and Majestic to name but a few. Many of these titles bombed. Would you be willing to invest millions more into unknowns? I wouldn't, at least not in the near term.
Every company does shit like this.
You got that right. If I was to boycott every publisher or dev that pissed me off over the last 20 years I would've stopped playing games on PCs long ago.
