^ The dislike for EA has little to do with their games and everything to do with how they treat their employees. Do a bit of research, you'll see what I mean.

EA are by no means a great company but this wins a bit of my respect

[*]In the past year, we have received thousands of emails and postcards protesting against EA for allowing players to create LGBT characters in our games. This week, we

It's a nice reminder of how petty and retarded people can be. Personally, I thought it was pretty funny.

Yeah. It's a wake-up call really.

Granted, I'll gladly give them kudos for that. They still treat their staff like crap though.

Their real response is just as shameful and come off childish, full of in your face half ass answers with no explanations.

They have taken some flak for it in the past but I have no reason to believe they're currently any worse than any other gaming company. (I'm not even sure they were any worse than most others before, though it wasn't a good deal either way.)

Its simple, nerds end up as your boss. Don't mess with them. They messed with the nerds, again, and the nerds bite them back where it hurts. Consumer Preception.

Onto the letters content, yes there are worse companies than EA, those events of the other companies are singularly terrible events vs EA's overall disregard for the consumer. But hey, the sheep will continue on, both companies that make huge oil spills and terrible games will still be around. They know just as everyone else does, everyone won't stop buying their games. Becuase there are far more people that Don't Know, than those that Do.

Look at BP, its like nothing ever happened, to the avg person these days.

I think the first handful of replies on their real response summed it up pretty well. From monopolizing on sports game franchises (which is as much the league's faults as theirs), using those monopolies to make half assed games, to finding ways to nickel and dime people with crap like online passes, and all their ridiculous DRM gaffes, it's not a one year thing, EA has been an awful company for a long time. Of course people still buy their products, that's why they call it a monopoly. Some of us sports game fans want to play our favorite sport's game every year and have it up to date. Even if we hate EA, no one else can make something worth playing because EA owns licenses to everything. And we can't stop buying their games each year, because they stop updating rosters and such as soon as a new version is released, then completely shut down the servers shortly after.

They have set it up quite well to be able to deny any wrong doing, but overall their company's tactics are crap. The only reason they have customers is because we don't have a choice.

My take on their real response: "We can do better... but we won't because you will still give us money."

Entirely depends on their new CEO.

Seems like all they need to do to make people less incensed is put stuff back on Steam (properly, not like before where some games didn't get keys or work with DLC or whatnot.) I'm not impressed with Valve in general for the last several years and would rather avoid them, but they do have the better client.
