The part about Bad Company gold version made me decide to not ever play another battle field game.

There's nothing wrong with EA, they make some great games. I agree they put out a lot of crap titles, but Crysis, Fifa 08, NBA Live 08, Need for Speed, Medal of Honor are all terrific games.

EA doesn't have to do shit anymore. they have the NFL license, ESPN, College Basketball, the only college football game, and i think they workin to get the mlb franchise.

Prepare for a complete Sports genre monopoly, thanks to your boys at EA. They will have the only sports games out so everyone will have to buy it to get their sports game fix.

and besides sports games, they are buying so many other game companies that you probably don't even realize that EA owns them.

I just traded in a shitload of PS3 games and now I'm down to 3. It's safe to say I won't be buying a lot because I'm sick of buying all this stuff that is so overhyped and it turns out terrible. Plus I'm sick of buying games, beating them, trade in, buy, beat, trade in, repeat. I porbably could have bought a car with the money I could've saved instead of blowing it on a bunch of videogames that I traded in all of a sudden. Also I heard EA cut a deal to increase advertising in games, so that during cutscenes you will see ads for products, and in an interview they said this a good thing. Gaming isn't what it used to be. What happened to just buying a game and enjoying it? Now it's all about collectors editions and special features that they overcharge you for. I got laughed at the other day because when I was asked if I got GTA 4 I said no. To me, they are all the same games. You do missions, shoot people, and steal cars. That's another thing. So many people are just buying games because they have guns. Now adays all you have to do is have no story, plot, or features, and just put a gun on the front cover, overhype the game a million times, and people will buy it. Like Halo 3. That was Halo 2.5 to me. And I don't even play X-Box.

NFS? U crazy? The last really great NFS was Porsche 2000. And ohh yeah, Underground was cool too. But all the others were far from great.....u know something is wrong when the graphics are ugly in a EA game [NFSU2]

Need for Speed Underground and Carbon are both really good games. Have you even played Carbon?

i knew something was up when gta4 got 10 out of 10s everywhere. now the game is fucking insane, but i was just suspicious that rockstar having tons of money could buy a lot of good reviews. now here's proof that goes down.

The best NFS wast Most Wanted. Nothing comes close to that. Carbon was a "Carbon" copy of MW. NFSU2 was cool, cuz it had all the doors and speakers and things, but MW was the holy grail. Pro Street blew.
