Get off the EA-bashing bandwagon

Stevivor's Nicholas Simonovski writes, "Over the past year or so that I’ve been active as a writer, I’ve noticed two growing trends within the gaming industry. The first is this habit of making mountains out of molehills with seemingly insignificant matters; the second, this stigma that it’s cool to hate Electronic Arts. I’ve written articles in the past about why I disagree with a lot of the negativity hurled towards EA because for the greater part, it seems a lot of the criticisms are poorly thought-out and a cheap way to grab attention from readers. Earlier this week I stumbled across an article on Kotaku about a Need For Speed advertisement that ran in The New York Times, an article which embodies the very trends I’ve mentioned above. Let me explain." (Criterion, Culture, EA, Industry, Tag Invalid)

Ugh, more shill articles. Advertorial much?

Any louse who spends five minutes reading about all the anti-consumerist junk EA pulls would know that it's not "EA hate" or that it's just a "cool thing to do".

There are plenty of websites out there (obviously not this Stevivor place) that offers reasons backed up by facts on why EA is as bad as they are. Jim Sterling (of all people) did a pretty good rundown of what makes them so bad.

Sadly, shills will keep spewing their pro-corporate propaganda in hopes of swaying over the masses because "it's the cool thing to do".

I'll continue to express my dislike for EA or any other publisher
