Well now it is all about pleasing shareholders instead of players by making the most profit over the longest period of time.

Only if gamers let companies like EA cause that crash. Option B: support games from more reputable studios who actually have a grasp on what gamers want and aren't trying to exploit us in an evil manner. I think going forward it will be a while until I buy another title with EA's logo on it unless something shifts drastically in their ideology. With any luck the only companies experiencing a crash will be the ones who deserve it, while companies like Guerrilla become the new industry standard.

I think EA & Activision are gonna be surprised when they out find that people would rather not play & not buy games if this is gonna happen

Research is for testers to prove, not use paying customers to guinea pig their monetisation tactics.

Also, hire real gamers as testers and not shareholder appeasing idiots.
