They did admit the truth about screwing up with a lot this generation. This is silly but it's a lot better then anything activision has done, still waiting for them to admit their mistakes (which they won't). EA maybe stupid 90% o the time but they still put out good games. Activision only has cod they killed their other two games.

It's simple
you want Madden fans to stop complaining, let go of the exclusive rights to NFL, and let someone more talented make a NFL game, either that or make madden properly.

bioware has had LGBT characters for a long time. that isnt the reason why people hate EA. that is just a small group of uber-religious idiots.

the real reason why people hate EA is because they ruin franchises constantly and push all sorts of anti consumer locks on their products to rake in extra money.

Having zero morals and bad morals are similar. It's impossible to have no morals. Morals is what determines good and evil for you, which everyone has. And yeah, LGBT is not right.
Soldierone  +   472d ago
How come every person that doesn't support gay marriage becomes a "homophobe" ? The entitlement of being gay is what annoys the hell out of me. You are gay, fine, you are not special at all though, so stop acting like it.

And calling Madden fans whiny? Lmao, maybe if the game changed it up once in a while they wouldn't "whine"
Yi-Long  +   472d ago
....so asking for EQUAL rights...
... is called 'entitlement' nowadays...!?
SilentNegotiator  +   472d ago
If the majority decides that they don't want legally recognized gay marriages and that NO ONE should receive one...how is that UNequal?

I'm not trying to take a side, but I don't necessarily agree that it is an "inequality". A lot of things being illegal make those that desire them feel bad, but when it isn't legal for anyone, it isn't an inequality.

And then some people say that being gay isn't a choice because it's genetic, but also that no one should feel like they should consider changing. However, there are lots of genetic tendencies under 10% that we either discourage, often change, or even don't accept.

Again, I'm not taking a side, but it, like so many debates today, is less of a 2D image than some people make it out to be.
GraveLord  +   472d ago
Not at all, but just because someone doesn't support or care about equal rights for gays, it doesn't mean they are homophobic.

A phobia is something you are afraid of. So is anyone really "scared of gays"? Are there heterophobics within the gay community?
Qrphe  +   472d ago
@Silent

Because (at least in the U.S.) it's been decided that marriage is a basic right that goes beyond mob rule. If the majority decides that we should Soldierone would that make it ok? No because we'd infringe on his right to live.
Year by year more states legalize same-sex marriage because someone challenges it properly, it won't take that many years before the majority of the states has it rightfully legalized.
SilentNegotiator  +   472d ago
"Because (at least in the U.S.) it's been decided that marriage is a basic right that goes beyond mob rule"

What decision are you referring to?

And I suppose you'd rather have minorities rule (so long as they do so in favor of what you agree with)?
Qrphe  +   472d ago
The latest case of course: Hollingsworth v. Perry

Whatever I, you or whatever group may agree on is irrelevant since we're talking about a basic right. Just like no group can decide whether you should live or die, no group should decide on who you can mutually willfully marry.

So much for "not taking a side."
SilentNegotiator  +   471d ago
...which is still in review by the supreme court.

And no, I haven't taken a side. I'm only making the point that there is validity to the idea of homosexual marriage not being a basic right. I tend to stick my neck out for the underdog.

MARRIAGE is a basic right...

PopRocks359  +   469d ago
SilentNegotiator logic...

You are restricted of basic human rights, but it's fair because you are a minority and the majority says it's fair for you to have less rights than us normal people!

EDIT: Hey SN, why don't you go back to the 1700's and take the majority's view on slavery while you're at it? Just because it's the general consensus (which in this case, I hardly believe it is anyway) doesn't make it right.

"How come every person that doesn't support gay marriage becomes a "homophobe"?"

the same reason why people who didn't support legalizing interracial marriages were racist. you cant discriminate against a group of people and not be labeled a bigot.

seeking equal rights is not entitlement. the only thing that gays have been entitled to in this nation and across the globe is being the 1# target for violent hate crimes.
Dmarc  +   472d ago
Just because you dont support gay marriage dont mean you dont think it should be allowed.

I dont support it but we live in a free country so we can do what ever we want to do.Nobody should have the power to tell anyone who they can or cant have a relationship with.Unfortunately the media portrays every one who dont support it is homophobic
I also hate the constant comparisons of homophobia and racism.Its implying that people that believe in what the bible teach is ignorant or some sort of brainwashed.Practice what you preach, we can believe what we want, we can have relationships with who ever we want.I dont support sex before marriage but I still have sex because I can do what ever I want to do, im always explaining this to my homosexual friends because they always fall for the crap the media say.

I thought Metal Gear games were suppose to make you smarter. All people should be equal and deserve to marry their mate PERIOD. You're the one who thinks he is special, hell yeah its homophobic. You're basically telling them "you cant have what i have" , haha.

I know everyone has opinions, but don't get pissed if someone calls you a homophobe cause you're one, If i said blacks shouldn't get marry what am i ? Not a racist ?

Soldierone  +   472d ago
Did people fail to read the part where I said "you are gay, FINE"

No where at all did I say I'm against it, I just hate the entitlement of it. People that are gay pretend they are fighting the same fight as slaves, and they are not. If you are gay, I'm treating you like EVERY OTHER PERSON. you don't get your way all the time? Too bad, either do I.

I get disgusted by couples making out in public, yet gay people do it and call you a homophobe if you say something about it. It's crap like that I can't stand.
KaBaW  +   472d ago
You say they aren't special at all.. well, they are if they can't marry.
They certainly have a 'special' set of rules, disallowing them not to marry.

That does seem they are special. Although, not in a good way.
FunAndGun  +   472d ago
How is wanting life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness being entitled? How is wanting to be treated equally entitled?

How does two people of the same sex getting married affect your life, liberty, or pursuit of happiness at all?????

What are you so afraid of?
ChickeyCantor  +   472d ago
"The entitlement of being gay is what annoys the hell out of me."

It's because of people like you why they call it "gay-rights".
They are, and always will be, nothing but rights. Just like the rights of any other person.

" You are gay, fine, you are not special at all though, so stop acting like it. "

Then stop denying them their rights. And they won't have the need to speak out against the fact that their basic rights are violated.

Gay people aren't special. That's the whole thing. They want to be treated like any other person. But the moment you deny them their basic rights, you have to label it in order to make a point.

Lol this is just further proving my point.

According to these comments either you stand in line and go full on supporting gay rights, or you get abused. No where at all did I say I'm against it, yet look at all the hate about my comment. "people like you" you mean people that honestly do not care about it? Okay. I never fight it, I never supported it. If you are gay, then go be gay, just don't act like that makes you better than me.
Patrick  +   471d ago
Just because a small group of people view something (that goes against nature) as ok or legal, that doesn't make it so. What if a group of people think they should be able to marry their children or their animals (pets)? Should we legalize that as well? I'm sorry, but if nature doesn't support you there is probably a reason, like what your doing is unnatural. Just because you may or may not be born with the tendency doesn't mean its ok, supposedly some people are born with a tendency to be murders but it doesn't mean we should legalize murder. Now, I'm not saying that you aren't allowed to be gay. It's your life so go do what you want in the privacy of your own home, but do not expect the rest of the world to accept your lifestyle as ok. Because there are lots of different lifestyles out there that want acceptance, like multiple spouses, incest, bestiality, ect... That doesn't mean we should accept them. Sorry, nature doesn't support you. If you think it does, then put all the homosexuals on two islands, gays on one lesbians on the other, and wait about 70 years. Know what would happen? Nothing, they wouldn't multiply, they would just die out. But why, if it's natural and normal why would nature not allow it or make a way? Sometimes the answer you don't like, is still the right answer especially when its the only answer. It is not a basic right unless your ready to make ALL lifestyle choices a basic right, even the ones YOU don't agree with.
ChickeyCantor  +   471d ago
"What if a group of people think they should be able to marry their children or their animals (pets)? "

It's called consent you idiot.
Two gay ADULTS who consent. That's what this is. Take your irrational nonsense elsewhere.

" Because there are lots of different lifestyles out there that want acceptance, like multiple spouses, incest, bestiality, ect... That doesn't mean we should accept them. Sorry, nature doesn't support you."

Ah but in nature it's normal for a male to have multiple females.
And I can only assume you are christian. So you believe in Adam and Eve? So you believe we came from incest. How nice.

". It's your life so go do what you want in the privacy of your own home, but do not expect the rest of the world to accept your lifestyle as ok"

No one is expecting anything other than their basic right. Such as the CONSTITUTION provides. ( Thank goodness I live in the Netherlands where people actually uphold the constitution we have here)

". Sorry, nature doesn't support you. If you think it does, then put all the homosexuals on two islands, gays on one lesbians on the other, and wait about 70 years. Know what would happen? Nothing, they wouldn't multiply, they would just die out"

How is this relevant to a world populated with about 7 billion people. A world that is OVERPOPULATED. And yet you would deny someone their right to love each other because you decided to be a keeper of "nature"( even though homosexuality is clearly observed in "NATURE", so your point is mood ).

Perhpas homosexuality is a trigger to prevent over population, a mechanism from nature? Maybe.

"Sometimes the answer you don't like, is still the right answer especially when its the only answer. It is not a basic right unless your ready to make ALL lifestyle choices a basic right, even the ones YOU don't agree with."

Exactly, just like how you don't like reality and the fact that two consenting adults should have the same right as any other couple who consent in marriage. A child can not consent into ADULTRY. An animal can not consent into bestiality.

It's not a lifestyle choice. You don't choose to be gay. ( But you as a christian, perhaps a muslism, probably think it's the devil poking a stick ) So when two consenting homosexuals want to get married. It should not be up to bigots like you because you are being doom and gloomy about the existence of human beings.

Your fear is unneeded.

Lol, not children as in underage. All adults have or had parents so they are or were someones child. Your entire argument is that its not a choice, my opinion says it is. Your insecurity causes you to insult and disrespect other opinions except your own and I do not. You make assumptions you do not know therefore your argument is weak. Non religious people can have opinions too. Wow, talk about fear

Why stop at gay couples? What about the mom that wants to marry her son, or the dad that wants to marry his daughter, or the guy that wants to marry his 2 girlfriends, or his pet, or farm animal, or his sex robot. Just because your lifestyle minority grows doesn't mean people have to accept your lifestyle as natural with all the basic rights. Sorry, no. Marriage between one man and one woman is as old as time itself, nothing, nothing can change that, even if one day its accepted as ok and we allow the guy to marry his robot spouse.

@Patrick

Because homosexuality is not even remotely associated with incest or bestiality or any of the other tired cop out arguments guys like you come up with to do nothing but deny a basic human right to people who are different from you.

You don't like gay marriage? Don't have one. No one is forcing you. In fact, no one is forcing you to like it either. Let people live the life they want. Your judgement of them probably won't change their minds.

No they are off base there. EA had a positive momentum going at the start of this gen with new ip's and good games.

Now however they have milked those same ip's to death and gone dlc mad. I mostly rent EA games now days, only one I bought was DS3 and just because I love that series. Waited until a price drop though, another EA staple. Wait a couple of months and their games drop in price usually before others released at the same time...

Make a Madden game that isn't completely broken mediocre and then we'll talk.
StrawHatPatriot  +   472d ago
Exactly. Every Madden looks "good" in the previews to some people, but in the end, when the actual game releases, it's always one or the other:

The game fixes some stuff, and makes stuff worse (Madden NFL 13)

The game keeps the SAME CORE ISSUES that explain why people STILL want 2K back (Madden NFL 12)
AzaziL  +   472d ago
I think it's time for the end of yearly releases for sports games, it's too soon of a turnaround to do any drastic improvements and changes. So all they do is change the menus, make a few gameplay tweaks, update rosters and viola, last years sports title rebranded for this year.

Instead, sports games should be developed for 2-3 years like a AAA title and during years when it's not releasing, release DLC with roster updates, tweaks, new modes, etc.

Blaming "homophobes" for their image problems and using the LGBT community as a sheild is actually extremely insulting to the gay community. Its such an obvious, shallow ploy to shield them from valid criticism. Perhaps there are some LGBT users reading this who might agree with me?

Ea people don't hate because of gay characters or madden cover, people dislike you because you ruin great franchises just so every game will appeal to the cod audience, you try and squeeze every penny and dime out of your consumers...

EA thinks these Madden games are good? That's why so many people always wonder if the developers of Madden even watch football that much. The core issues are still there every, and they also find ways to make it worse (connected careers, a career mode with experience points to boost up every player's flaws? in a game that always claims to be realistic? really?)

was about to ask about the Homophobia thing...
... but then I read this.

(Moore contends that EA’s decision to allow users to create lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered (LGBT) characters in some of its games has resulted in a voting campaign orchestrated by those opposed to portrayals of LGBT characters in games:

“In the past year, we have received thousands of emails and postcards protesting against EA for allowing players to create LGBT characters in our games. This week, we’re seeing posts on conservative web sites urging people to protest our LGBT policy by voting EA the Worst Company in America.”)

I'm with Moore on this one.
