Overpriced DLC (u wanna pay $15 dollars for a 1 and half hour extra gameplay?)
Online Pass
Shut down servers on some games
Day-1 DLC's taken out from game itself
Having a history with staff abusement.

Yes because EA is the only company that does this.

Also why are server shutdowns such a big deal?

It's only games like Madden 10 that have been out for a very long time now and what's more next to nobody plays them. Besides you can still play it offline so what's the big deal? Oh you can't earn your pwecious twophies?


dude who cares about trophies?

I like how you act like this is the case for all their dlc....just like every other dev, some of it is priced rally well and extremely lenghty, some of it isnt and not worth it, sometimes its even free but lets ignore all that andpretend one example is how everything is.....and again this isnt just EA lol....



Online Pass

-anothere grasping reason-oh no, buy your games new and problem solved...amazing concept in a world with self absorbed gamers who refuse to spend more thn a few buck on a game then whine they dont get everything for free or cheapest possible price for a full package.....yet again thisisnt just an EA thing lol....



Shut down servers on some games


omg they shut down servers of games where onlne is completely dead, this is when users like yourself and the typcal GF user like to pretend is a big deal and act like you and everyone here played these game when thats not the case lol....theres a reason they are shut down lol....yet again this is not just an EA thing lol.....


Day-1 DLC's taken out from game itself


silly drama that can easily be applied to most other devs aswell....most of the time I see ppl whining about day in game dlc from EA most of the time its just time saver packs, everything can be earned in game.....however if this isnt what your talking about...good or bad this is not just an EA thing lol....


Having a history with staff abusement

theres always drama in any ompany, pretty normal, even if this is completely true they have helped many smaller devs...many in fact they have setup certain things to promote smaller devs and helping reach their goals and dreams, if haters wern't soignorant they would see both sides of the picture....not just the illy picking and choosing. Agai this is not just an EA thing lol, its funny seeing just EA singled out at a site who posts and get in fights off of any bit of news, alot of the times...you betch ya it revolves around the drama in a company or its employees, many fights here have broke out in these topics but its a hate EA topic so those never existed and every other comany around is perfect and everyone is happy eveerywhere...except EA....right lol?


online tropihies


now its really grasping for hateful reasons, do I really need to point out how silly that reaosn was lol.....agaiin its not just an ea thing lol.



Can anyone....any of you haters give me a single answer as to why EA is horrid and sucks without contradicting oneself lol....or a issue tht only involves EA lol?


Corporate nut dumpster at work.


and yet everything I responded to can be applied to most other devs lol...come on mindless haters, lets see some rasons that can only be applied to EA lol....you keep calling me an ass kisser, coperate nut etc yet all I am doing is pointing ott all the silly contradictive hate and the singleing out of EA lol....start giving reasons soley for EA hate that cannot be applied to anyone else lol....stop the name calling lets get to this lol....


all Im seeing is ppl dodging this point and question over and over and replying with name calling lol...

Why do i hate EA? Because they have Day 1 DLC, and not just a little here or there. No in the case of sports games they have sometimes hundreds on day 1. Ya they may be minor things like uniform colors but they are already on disc you can see this by just jail breaking the game. In addition they are all $1 each that's ridiculous.

On another topic, they have the most abysmal forum modding system of any company. Why? Because if you don't like everything they do your banned. And not just forums your whole account can be. That means your online account for gaming to just because you spoke out against something the company did. That's completely ridiculous. I had my account banned because my online pass didn't work and they sent me 2 more that also didn't work and when I started really complaining to them they just banned me instead. Is so friggen stupid :/

Well then what's the big deal about server shutdowns?

You can't play online? It's dead anyway. Go play Madden 12 or 13.

I can see why people don't like them, but I don't get how people focus almost entirely on them when it comes to "bad game companies." About the only thing they've done that I actually dislike about them is the whole "Origin required for some things" shtick. Still, I use Steam, os it's not like it's a massively big difference or anything. I just have a shortcut in Steam pointing to ME3, and remember to exit Origin when I'm done playing ME3.

I miss LAN and local play.

EA servers are terrible. And I would very much like to keep playing the excellent games made by developers EA own.

But they don't offer any options to do so.

That's reason enough for me to dislike them. And a LOT of other developers.

And no, the issue doesn't need to be exclusive to EA. What kind of bizarre alternate reality do you live in where it's okay to be wrong, as long as someone else is too?

What's special about EA though is that they basically check off every single thing on the list of things I think is wrong about the gaming industry of today. That is why I single them out.

Why are my preferences and personal choice to not support practises I disagree such a problem for you?
Know that if you allow someone to take advantage of you, they might make it a habit.

I think they release some kick ass games so as long as they keep doing that I'll keep buying them. Mass Effect 3 was my favorite game of 2012. Dead Space 3 is next on the list.
