Default what do you think of EA now?

It seems like EA has really seemed to improve their image in the last year or so, what are your thoughts on them now?

I don't have a problem with EA, well I do, Madden. Madden is crap, imo and the 2k series franchise was way better Madden.

God I can't stand Madden, but I play it because its the only NFL game available.

I never really understood where the animosity towards EA stemmed from in the first place.

If any developer/publisher ever earned my disapproval, it would be Ubisoft for the SC: DA fiasco.

EA still sucks why? Cause their games cost $10 more than games from others publishers here in Poland.

Just look at recent and upcoming games; Rage, Orange Box, Crysis, Mass Effect and now Mirror's Edge, all excellent looking games and "high risk" titles, all published by EA. If you read some of the recent EA interview's it seems like they have some new ideas.

I agree with jAkUp on EA. They has been improving, and clearly they have learned their mistakes in the past (especially with Bullfrog, Westwood, etc.).

Ubisoft > EA.


id Software makes Rage, they just don't have the resources to publish it, so they went with EA. This was discussed a long time ago (i.e.-id discussed the EA thing a while back).
