Would rather have EA leave the gaming industry entirely if I'm honest

I would rather EA went out of business......except for the Forza Horizon series...let that live as it is the only GOOD game series they have developed for decades.

They'll probably find someone worse to replace him.

Um Forza is not made by EA. Nor Published. Not even owned.

Half the time people talk crap about ea and don't even know the games they make.

Dead Space was published by EA. So was Mass Effect. Sims. Fifa. Dragon Age. Bad Company series. SWTOR. SWKOTR. Mirrors Edge. Command and Conquer. Medal of Honor.

Probably more I forgot to mention. All those series and games were amazing. Nobody talks about it because they were amongst the first to bring in DLC and then they messed up one crappy SW games with microtransactions. Big whoop. SW has been dead for 3 decades and has only been used to milk consumers since the originals released. People need to relax and get over EA. Without these publishers we would have nothing in comparison to the games they made. Does not mean they are perfect but it's better than the alternative.

Someone had to take the fall for Battlefront 2 disaster, I guess it was him. Maybe he will go back to Dice and bring out another Bad Company game. A feller can dream right

Bad Company 2 for the online element. I still preferred Bad Company's campaign; more open environments, less on rails.


Still both games were phenomenal and I spent hundreds of hours on them as a teenager. A new Bad Company would be great!

A new Bad Company would probably suck to be honest. Dice would just make it a Battlefield clone with different characters. I don't think they would do it justice like the old Bad Company team could. It wouldn't be impossible for them to get it right but my bet and faith in Dice making it just as great as the older ones is next to none.
