What reputation did EA have to ruin?

porkChop182d ago

2007-2009 EA was pretty great. That's when they were trying new things like Dead Space and taking risks with games like Mirror's Edge. MW2 came and sold incredibly well at the end of 2009, and that's when EA started chasing COD money. Ever since then they've just been circling the drain.

Um.... they haven't had a reputation worth a crap since the mid 2000's.

If you still have any respect whatsoever for and/or give this company your money in this day and age, well, then you are a moron. Plain and simple.

With a majority of the gaming community yes but there are still some willing to give them a shot due to all the valuable IP they have.

"Some" willing? I think you'll find the minority is the gaming community with the rest the majority. Their stock prices don't lie, people are buying their games by the truck load.

Unfortunately that is true.

SWBF2 sold 7+million copies while the Way Out sold 1 million. Yes, one million is amazing for that small game but EA only looks at numbers and 7 million is more than 1 million so they think that they are justified and the numbers back them up. They look at the bottom line and the bottom line is that uniformed people buy their crap.

Yep exactly, N4G can bitch all they want. The negative signals are falling on deaf ears.

I'll be happy to take any EA stock off your hands for a low price.

That way, in 10 years I will make a huge profit.

EA isn't going anywhere.

They've been the plague to me for years!

They ruined it years ago by progressivley ruining their games. Lootboxes were the final nail in their coffin. Used car salesman are working at EA.
