Alright boy and girls. Anyone who doesn't understand why EA are such massive cock juggling thunder-cunts, or anyone who thinks they're not that bad, listen up.   
1: Day 1 DLC.   
2: Basically every game shipped incomplete purposely (links to reason 1).   
3: Ridiculous, money grabbing, useless DLC (all those Sims expansions).   
4: They don't make their own games.   
5: They buy out all the talented studios and then close them down firing all staff (ie Pandemic, Westwood, DICE, Criterion, Maxis, Bullfrog, Bioware, Mythic).   
6: They turn everything into a generic, safe game (ie Mass Effect).   
7: Origin bans (being banned on the forums prevented any access to every single game you purchased over Origin).   
8: Their war on used games.   
9: Constantly blaming #1-8 on the difficulty in making profit from gaming.   
10: No innovation (particularly mentioned in the Madden franchise).   
11: Online Passes required for nearly every new game, which then expire after a set time of being in use.   
12: Server shutdowns of multiplayer games older than 2 years.   
13: Customer service with the social graces of rampaging, raping, Mongol barbarians.   
14: DRM   
15: Removing almost all of their servers and "coincidentally" adding a Rent-a-Server feature at the same time, shifting the price of running a server to the consumer who already paid $60 for the game.   
16: Origin two year Entitlement Clause (You HAD to use Origin within two years lest your account fall victim to mandatory expulsion and loss of privileges).   
17: Overblown, forceful marketing (DLC charity events, fake Christians protesting for controversy, and anti/pro-gay movements to deflect from bad PR).   
18: Remaking games that are barely 3 years old, with little to no change at all.   
19: Shoehorning multiplayer into single player games (Mass Effect 3).   
20: Thousands of complaints of EA customer service banning people with a problem they didn't know how to fix.

several good points. but the online pass thing is being done by THQ and Ubisoft as well. the video game industry as a whole seems to be making the used game market obsolete when the price for downloading the pass makes up for or often exceeds what you saved by buying used.

User avatar #86 to #64 - Oblivion (04/11/2013) [-]
They don't take risks trying to accommodate a niche audience. Mass Effect 3 is a bad example in my opinion. Dead Space 3 would make more sense. It is labeled as a horror game, but it's nothing more than an action shooter with jump scares.

User avatar #84 to #64 - thatguywhohasbacon ONLINE (04/11/2013) [-]
They take a great game that may or may not sell well and turn it into the same format used by other successful games (I.E. Turning dead space 3 into an action game because it would potentially sell better than a horror game.)

Just a little tip, when you want to relate something to your statement, use "e.g." rather than "i.e.". "i.e" is "id est" which is Latin for "that is", "e.g." however stands for "exampli gratia" or the proper way to say "for example" in Latin. You pose a nice set of point by the way, keep up the good work.

I dont know how to torrent, and every time I use the youtube tutorials the game never downloads properly and therefore never works. Do you know why this might be?
User avatar #104 to #57 - jonajon (04/11/2013) [-]
get a copy of Utorrent or Bit torrent

Go onto the proxy bay (pirate bay access site) or IsoHunt. there are more, but I use these. search for the game / film / music / tv show / software you want. Pick the one with the most seaders (S) and check the reviews and comments to see that it is clean.


download and install.

User avatar #39 to #38 - Oblivion (04/11/2013) [-]
I agree with everything here, but Mass Effect 3's multiplayer is pretty damn fun.
#47 to #39 - anon (04/11/2013) [-]
It may of been fun, the point was that it was forced by them into a game where it wasn't needed or asked for.
User avatar #67 to #47 - Oblivion (04/11/2013) [-]
But if the addition is fun, does it really matter whether it was forced or not?
User avatar #85 to #67 - MrMouz (04/11/2013) [-]
I borrowed the game, so I could never get 50+% readiness rating. It doesn't go higher without playing multiplayer
User avatar #95 to #85 - Oblivion (04/11/2013) [-]
I find that hard to believe, but I'll take your word for it. Honestly the largest reason I bought the game was for the multiplayer, so I wouldn't know. Although doesn't readiness not matter in the end compared to War Assets?
#106 to #95 - furtehlulz (04/11/2013) [-]
gr applies a percentage multiplier to your assets
#107 to #67 - anon (04/12/2013) [-]
The point was that they force this into games, the fact it was fun was inconsequential to the point.
User avatar #93 to #67 - Generalissimo (04/11/2013) [-]
Yes it matters. I had the xbox 360 version and didn't have xbox live (live in rural area with unstable connection). So if I wanted to have maxium galatic readiness I had to play multiplayer, which I couldn't and didn't really want to do. (They might have patched it now, but it's too late for me, don't care about that game anymore).

EA is a horrible company, no doubt about that, but all that WCIA showed is that gamers can get butt hurt easily and stay butt hurt. How would a video game company be worse than Bank of America that has literally destroyed people's lives?

If it wasn't for EA, we wouldn't have Battlefield 3's expansions, Deadspace 3, or Crysis 3... I don't think they are all that bad.

Preparing for red thumbs.

Pic semi-related.
User avatar #51 to #28 - doctorpibber (04/11/2013) [-]
Aside from battlefield three, in my opinion the world could have done without Dead space 3, and Crysis 3 was rushed beyond belief. In my mind the last two games were cash cows that were only decent because of their established past games.
User avatar #56 to #51 - graydiggy (04/11/2013) [-]
We tested both Deadspace 3 and Crysis 3 for almost 6 months each. That does not include the time it took for the developers to get us pre-alpha stage games to test on. Neither were rushed and I rather enjoyed testing them before launch and playing them after everything was finalized and launched to the public.
User avatar #60 to #56 - doctorpibber (04/11/2013) [-]
I suppose my biggest gripe is dead space three, I didn't find it scary compared to 1 and 2 and raising the difficulty just means you'll get ************** more often by baddies than actually being challenged
User avatar #70 to #60 - graydiggy (04/11/2013) [-]
I agree with you there, but that is to be expected. You already know what the NPCs are like, so you have a general idea of what is going to happen. The fear factor was nowhere near the first one. But overall, I think it was a pretty decent game that I would like to play again to kill some time when I have the time to kill.
User avatar #52 - randybutternub (04/11/2013) [-]
I think we're all forgetting Dead Space. I just beat the third one a week ago and personally I thought it was magnificent.
User avatar #62 to #52 - noblekira (04/11/2013) [-]
i sold it 2 days after buying it, it felt terrible as a game
User avatar #69 to #62 - randybutternub (04/11/2013) [-]
It was a complete overhaul, and nowhere near the caliber as the first, but it still felt as intense ( and sometimes irritating ) as the others to me
#97 to #69 - anon (04/11/2013) [-]
But to be fair, the first wasn't exactly top notch quality.

I get it, I get it, just like Tomb Raider 2013, it's actually a "good game", but just like Tomb Raider 2013, it doesn't do anything well.

When you claim that Dead Space is good, you really don't put it into a lot of context, because, that unlike games that actually try and fail, this game is in the strange category of attempts that neither fails nor succeeds.

I did like Dead Space 1, so it's not that, but I keep myself as critical and objective as I possibly can.

If I had a larger character count, I would try to break it down even further, but I'm not going to be arsed having to stop my argumentation halfway-through, so I'll just end it with "absolutely mediocre, completely and perfectly describes the average quality of a modern AAA game."
User avatar #72 to #69 - noblekira (04/11/2013) [-]
i'm not sure why i hated it, some of the gun features were cool, making new innovative weapons, but taking out the multiplayer for me is something i hate, dead space 2 had it fair enough it was unbalanced and hard but they could have improved, im now obsessed with Bioshock infinite and can forgive them for removing multiplayer as their story is amazingly interesting
User avatar #103 to #72 - thatguywhohasbacon ONLINE (04/11/2013) [-]
Really, the multiplayer? You're pissed because the removed a feature that nobody wanted or cared about? You're pissed because they removed the very feature that damns almost every single player game it touches? Really? Leave the competitive multiplayer to games like call of duty, all it does is ruin single player games. And before you say multiplayer saved bioshock 2 tell me, was bioshock 1 **** ? No it wasn't, it was a good game, bioshock 2 was **** by comparison. Look at the assassins creed series, started turning to **** after they added competitive multiplayer. Coincidence? Maybe, but I'm not gonna trust a maybe. Multiplayer sucks up insane amounts of funding that could be better spent on making the base game better.
User avatar #112 to #103 - noblekira (04/12/2013) [-]
no need to be such a douche, yes i prefer multiplayer to single player games, i loved bioshock 1, bioshock 2's biggest mistake in my opinion was making Delta too slow and thats why i loved bioshock infinite because of Dewitts speed. I disliked dead space 3 because i didnt find the story compelling and for me too keep a game i would like either a compelling storyline or a decent multiplayer, dead space 3 had neither, bioshock 2 had both.
User avatar #74 to #72 - randybutternub (04/11/2013) [-]
I wanted to get it but I was hesitant after playing the second one. Is it worth buying?
User avatar #78 to #74 - noblekira (04/11/2013) [-]
i would say so, the story telling and then amazing battle system seemlessley go from one another, i played it through in English and in German and was amazed throughout both times, one great thing is if you find a power up that works in your first play through, it will be hard to find in the next one, overall yeah it doesnt feel like a bioshock game but it is great

And this is what upsets me. Not that I'm the biggest fan of EA, they have really been sloppy with the BF3 servers lately, but worst company in America? Worst game company, sure, but worst company? All of this stems from raging, prepubescent, uneducated, narrow-minded raging fanboys who got upset that EA ruined their favorite game, so they line up to hate vote them to receive this award....twice.

Oh yeah sure, ignore the corrupt, cash-hungry assholes at Bank of America, the people at Comcast who take their customers and pretty much rape them and refuse to give a single **** about them, Spirit Cruises who ruin whatever they so well touch, or oil companies that contributes to the environment being completely destroyed, or large scale weapon industries that support mass-murder and war across the world, and every single company that's involved in child labor and borderline slavery? And people still think EA games is worse because Mass Effect 3 didn't end like it should have, or Medal of Honor: Warfighter was overhyped?

Some people really sicken me. Sorry for wall of text and rant, but I'm just pissed of right now. Peace out. /rant
User avatar #94 to #92 - kingofnewyork (04/11/2013) [-]
And to top it all of, EA seems to be pretty much the only company that gives a **** about being on this list. Their president has issued statements that they know about the criticism will work to become better. Pretty much the only company that tries to better itself, compared to the rest of the bunch that will continue to make the world a corrupt, rotten place.

Okay everyone I'm just going to use the air from my lungs to share my view on the whole EA matter.    
Eventually they will be like    
"Right no one likes us,lets just shut the company down"    
The main problem here will be if there is a great upcoming game at that time (BF5,ME4 something like that)then they'll scrap everything and shut down causing BF5 ME4 or whatever to go unreleased,thus causing a 			*********		 of people saying    
"Oh why did you shut down,why. whyyyyyyyyyy?!!!"    
EA will just say "nope 			****		 you all,you only like us when you want 			****		 from us"    
and shut down just like that.    
Before you say another company will buy the rights to the game,EA probably won't sell them just so the game franchise just ends and the game isn't released.    
Quite a few people are just pointing out negatives and being 			********		 about this situation    
This is just my opinion,I am in no way,shape or form claiming this is right and that you're wrong,I may be wrong and you're completely right.    
And I am not saying that EA is in the right here,I have no strong feelings either way (at the moment at least.)   
Please feel free to post your own opinion but no hate please.

There are plenty of companies people hate, but as long as they make money they won't change anything, and definitely won't shut down.

i have serious doubts of your understandings of economics
if anything they'll try to make better games so people will shut up or they'll just start selling off their franchises like battlefield and mass effect
(remember they're a for-profit business; they will literally beg the gaming community for money if they thought it was the best course of action)
User avatar #110 to #82 - inkfox (04/12/2013) [-]
Fair point
#83 to #65 - slipperyjoe (04/11/2013) [-]
Pretty sure if EA were to shut down they would sell all the rights for money, instead of just being bitter and holding onto them so nobody else can use them.

Besides, I really don't care about Call of Duty Field and Sci-fi Dating Sim Effect. Those games have had their run now they're just being milked.
