EA Admits It “Can Do Better” But Blames Worst Company Success On Homophobes And Whiny Madden Fans

Consumerist: Gaming might be a multibillion-dollar industry that attracts the world’s biggest names in entertainment, music, and sports, but it is nonetheless treated by both the media and the business world with a reductionist shrug. Companies like EA are happy to foster the misinformed perception of your average “gamer” as a whiny, nitpicky loner who will complain about anything, as that image only helps to discredit those who have a valid complaint about a relatively pricey consumer product.

It's easier than admitting the truth.

"It's easier than admitting the truth."

What are you? Some kind of homophobe!?!

/s

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.

@Dmarc

LOL_WUT1208d ago (Edited 1208d ago )

I'm with EA on this one ;)

Edit: I was referring to the whiny madden fans jeez

telekineticmantis1208d ago

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.

Muffins12231208d ago

Well they are a bad company but it is true people are being a little bitchy and whiny at ea for stupid little things.But they are pretty bad...

Rivitur1208d ago

Ironically they published BF: Bad Company.

ApolloTheBoss1208d ago (Edited 1208d ago )

No he's right! E3 is just as guilty. Epic game reveals every year? Free demos to the public before the games come out? Do they really think people are looking for stuff like that?! /s

GdaTyler1208d ago

YES it was a typo. Thanks a lot for the dislikes. Anyways EA is pathetic.

urwifeminder1208d ago

The whiny fans are the biggest trouble in modern gaming the spoilt brats have come of age and still crave the mothers teet.

Blacktric1208d ago

"The whiny fans are the biggest trouble in modern gaming..."

Not the ones who bend over for publishers....

Riiight.

Baka-akaB1208d ago (Edited 1208d ago )

Gullible yes men that rather bend the knee instead of wishing for better games and better game features are the actual bane of this gaming generation

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.
