I remember, many years back when Electronic Arts was a benevolent and grand company. Pushing the boundaries on consoles like the Megadrive.

At some point the rot set in, and corporate greed took over.

With the release of Dead Space I thought they had turned a corner. They appeared humbled, and had acknowledged the annual grind of their IP was wrong. And I even recall some statement about 'for every X established IP releases we will launch Y new IP'.

Unfortunately that optimism was short lived. I'll still buy EA games as I think they are still producing some quality titles, but it's a shame that a lot of their corporate decisions are punishing the customer, and the creative people behind the games are having to toe the company line.
