"Some people just want to seem like rebels. Whether it's a supposed boycott of a company, or merely hating a company for the sake of hating it (of course the excuse is usually because that said company is "evil"), some people just need to hate something to love… well, something else. The logic doesn't make sense to me either, but it does to those who follow it.
EA is one of those companies. There are people out there that refuse to acknowledge EA as a good publisher. People that hate EA are like the people that hate Britney Spears. They honestly have no good reason to hate her, they just do, and the same thing goes for EA. But honestly, it's time to put an end to all the hatred towards EA."
