Default EA Done With "Crappy" Licensed Titles

EA likes their original IPs more apparently.

I want EA to keep hold of their licenses, just don't exploit them and turn them to ****.

I'd love EA put some real effort in, cut down on the number of licenses it holds and make their real top-sellers in to real top-quality titles. Honestly, they should keep Madden NFL, FIFA, NHL and Tiger Woods, make them all in to the best games they can be and then keep on with their own IPs.

Don't forget about the Battlefield series... best large scale Multiplayer FPS game IMO, but ever since BF2, they've been mediocre. They really need to ramp things up if they want to keep that series alive.

Maybe in BF3, you can actually HIT people with bullets. BF2's hitbox/detection is probably the worst ever seen in any FPS.

Yeah seriously. If it weren't for mods like AIX or Project Reality, BF2 isn't worth playing. No wonder most people used the no-spread hack, you'd be lucky if you can hit one bullet correctly.
