I hope this doesn't open the floodgate of shovelware

EA FOR DUMMIES? DO WE REALLY NEED THIS?

CrAppleton3183d ago

I think it's a great idea for people who aren't really into videogames. I think it would be great for my wife. But I am a little worried that it would open the door to more crap that no one really wants to play.

All this and more to be followed by ReDumdency for Dummies. Seriously, you need a Seduku for dummies, as if the instructions were not simple enough or the concept? Doesn't Brain Training for dummies reveal your actual intelligence level before you even start the game?

This XXXX for Dummies books have to really stop. Life is trial and error, not made with a manual.

I want Microsoft or Sony to get in on this.. With titles that real gamers would like to see. For instance.. Gears For Dummies, or WipEout HD For Dummies.. Could be great stuff

Neco5123183d ago

i guess it could, i dont know that its needed though

CrAppleton3183d ago

Anything that helps bring MORE gamers into the community is a good thing and should be thought of as "needed". IMO

How about Final Fantasy for Dummies... Those games are so complex, they are almost impossible to get into if you are not familiar with the genre!

Neco5123183d ago

who would have ever thought that video games would need a how to guide. seriously now, this is almost as bad as sex for dummies

DUMB! EA IS JUST TRYING TO MAKE MORE MONEY

CrAppleton3183d ago

Maybe.. but they can also help people through this program. I like it.. But to each his own

bgrundman3182d ago

This is another grab for the EA money hat

JimmyJames703182d ago

It's fine as long as they don't bring it to the 360.

bgrundman3182d ago

It would be to hard to do that... the DS lends itself well to that kind of thing though
