Submission + - CEO of EA Games Steps Down - Is DRM the cause? (

Underfoot writes: John Riccitiello has announced that he is stepping down as CEO of EA Games. As someone who has actively avoided EA Games due to their over-encumbered DRM — I find myself wondering: Who will fill Mr. Riccitiello's shoes? Will they better understand their customer? Will they realize that the mangling of their software with always-on and overly complicated authentication schemes is actually driving away business? (I can think of at least five games over the past three years that I was very excited about until I realized EA was distributing them...) How does the "News for Nerds" crowd weigh in on Riccitiello's past six years at the helm of one of the largest game studios around?
