EA has made it clear beyond any reasonable doubt. They barely care about games They barely care about gamers They barely care about their employee's They focus almost exclusively on maximizing profits, diluting every aspect of games until it is stripped down to a bare minimum value. What you end up with is a roadblock to progress, a poison to the industry and game lovers alike. EA is like Midas in reverse, and games makers can't resist the bucket loads of money. Don't buy EA, and they will go away. It's time to bite the bullet and stop this monster we've created.
