Video games in general are getting pretty crappy these days too. May just be me . . . :/

EA sucks. I wish Bioware never got involved with them. Ugh.

It's not just you, six_storm. The quality has gone down. There's a lot of good iOS games out there but I hope it doesn't get too out of control. It seems everyone is trying to make a buck on the App Store.

Quality has really gone downhill and companies are just getting way too greedy. However, I don't have half the time I used to for video games. The little 5-10 minute time waster games (as Zoomy would call them) is all I have time to play unfortunately. Meh.

Video is sarcastic and all, but making Steam the David against EA's Goliath is a bit reversing the situation.
Steam still commands a huge lead in digital download.

About iOS games, if you have not tried it, try "Undercroft".
It's a dungeon Master type game, free, and I'm loving it. almost 20h in already...

For multiplayer, all I care about is that my games work whenever I would like to play them. 9/10 times, BF3 works on origin, and 10/10 times, CSS/TF2/L4D2 works on steam.

For single-player, the game must be good (obviously) as well as the delivery method. All my SP games work great on steam, and 9/10 times on origin. I don't think it is Steam's or EA's fault if a single player game they distribute sucks.

I really doubt that. I bet Bioware has total control and creative freedom in their games. They put out too many good sellers to be forced to produce.

I think EA is actually a great company as of recent, in the last 5 years or so they really have put out some great titles and people talking **** about them just want to get on the hate wagon. If there's a company who is churning out the same game every 6 months it would be Activision, I mean people look at Blizzard and ignore all their wrong doings but in reality its Activision pulling the strings. You all swallowed up their BS excuse for the reason to split Starcraft 2 into 3 games and accepted the horrible implementations in D3.

Heck you can replace EA with Activision, or TakeTwo, or Ubisoft, or THQ. They all operate this way.
