Lately I seen a lot of articles that has put a lot of hate towards EA, but really I want to know why?
I believe that there are a lot worse companies out there and in this article I will be naming some companies and listing some games.
The biggest game out there is the Call Of Duty series, (yes I have played them) and from my point of view it's just the same rubbish every year, the multiplayer is broken, the whole game is just a copy & paste theme and there noting really new or exciting in there.
It's not just the Call Of Duty games that have I have issues with.
The walking dead survival instinct is another game, it's buggy as hell and the combat is weak and its had so much hype it's just well crap. (I know this because I have experienced the game first hand and I did not enjoy it.)
Their customer support isn't any better either, when you go onto Activision support and explain you got a problem with the game or some sort of other issue as soon you done explaining to them, they decide to mark your case as resolved (even though it clearly hasn't. I had plenty of cases of this.)
Furthermore they have hardly improved there graphics or physics engine for years now (as you can see from there games.)
That’s not the only company what has screwed up in some way just look at Capcom and look at some of their recent games for example DMC remake and RE both was ruined in various ways.
RE was ruined by the franchise becoming an action game when it started out as a brilliant horror survival (the last decent survival horror in my opinion being RE:CVX.) The DMC remake was just a poor effort it didn't feel like I was playing DMC anymore but instead just a cheap copy.
konami has also had it fair share of fuck ups with games for example Silent Hill homecoming was yet again more action instead of survival horror and Metal Gear Solid Rising was over the top, it took away the element of stealth and it became more like Ninja Gaiden.
For my final example look at Dead Island Riptide (made by Techland) and how little things have changed from the first one, the combat is still sluggish, the missions are still boring and repetitive and it does not feel like a survival horror.
I not saying EA is the best but it’s not the worst, yes I understand they made some bad choices so have other companies. I also understand that EA have ruined some of their own game franchises like when Need For Speed went from illegal street racing to track racing, or dead space 3 being too much action.
I just saying just think about all the other game companies out there what have done bad ideas to their games and haven't fixed it and don't judge EA so radically.
