Should EA complete the purchase of Take Two here is a look at the games in the 2K Sports portfolio and what the move could mean to them.
Would mean sucky sport games :(
beside madden nothing at EA makes me go and buy there games . There was nothing at 2k that made me go out and buy there games either ...so just in the minority i dont give a crap...looking forward to the show 08.......screw you EA keep up the crappy work
Madden went to crap after EA bought it. If EA buys all the sports divisions I'll just have to go outside and play them.
2k's BIGS game was awesome. One of the best baseball games since the original Nintendo.
Sports games are the same game year after year with updated stats, why don't we just get Madden NFL, and have DLC every year with updated stats and skins or something. It's possible, it can be done. The only problem is Americans wont do it that way.
Don't like monopolistic practices. I like football but I don't like how NFL conducts their business most of the time. They could have created a license program where everybody who has the money for the fees and meets a minimum criteria they are welcome give their tribute to Football. No what we have is a one way its EA's way or nothing else. Madden Football is a good football game but isn't perfect. We are stuck with big brother EA and their idealogy on how we should play football. People will say Madden has a very good control and the graphics are fine. How do we know that? We can't because there is no method to allow others to innovate in Football because in our broken a$$ version of capitalism. Not only that EA doesn't even have to provide equal support for consoles so those who choose to only support one (or can only afford one) and it isn't the console EA chooses they suffer. (my last Madden title is 2005) I have boycotted EA sport titles because of this. Does it change the world no but I at least have my principles in place. I wish more Americans would have the zeal of those before us in the 60's who stood up for repression. I commend those citizens in France who in large numbers protested the thought of War in Iraq - whose the crazy ones now? Where were we (Americans)? Blindly following a foolish leader. Thankfully it didn't turn out as bad as the last time a group of people did this in the past. Why such a political statement? Part of it was to just to help spark something in an otherwise mundane gaming topic. The other was to make a very hard core point at my dislike for this move and we gamers just go along for the ride not caring as long as we get our Pro Football Fix. This isn't about how good or bad EA actually did in implementing the football game technically, even if the game is pretty good its about all the stuff that went on in the background to bring us that game? This will be a sad day for competitive sport game titles if it goes through and we Americans (as well as others in the World) are guilty for supporting it. So much for creative freedom I guess if we like something so much we don't care about the principles behind it as longs as we get our fix who cares about principles. (sarcasm) Let us throw are hands in the air and sing........ All hail EA! All hail EA!
