Analyst Michael Pachter speaks with Forbes contributor Todd Kenreck about which company he feels is winning the hearts and minds of gamers - and which deserves your investment dollars.

What he means "most original games"? Anyway, I think Activision has better games.
I love Blizzard, but everything else about Activision is crap lately. Destiny is a major disappointment, and so is CoD. Super clunky controls in CoD:AW compared to Titanfall (which is fantastic by the way), and then CoD:BLOPS3 that improved the controller somewhat (not as good as TF still), but still has laggy as hell p2p multiplayer. Then I look at EA, and they got BattleFront (very excited), Mass Effect: Andromeda (very excited), Dragon Age, and EA Access. Then one of my favorite series is Dead Space too! Blizzard is a league of it's own and ATVI win because of that, but EA is probably my favorite third party console publisher.
Ea makes much more and better games. Dragon age inquisition, battlefield, need for speed, battlefront, Fifa. Activision is abit too money hungry.
