Taking a look back at what was once one of EA’s most prestigious franchises.
EA's fuckery is what happened
It's always been an EA franchise though.
EA were lesser cu**s back in the days
Dude, if you take a hammer and replace the head, then later replace the handle, is it the same hammer? Same goes for company executives. New Executives only care about increased profitability at the cost of everything else, so they charge full price for a game then include mobile game revenue mechanics to make people grind it out playing the game, slowing progression to a grinding crawl, hoping you'll just pay more money to not have to play as much of the game to finally advance. That is the gaming industry today, and it's not just EA.
That’s exactly it. EA happened. What was once a great franchise and fun to play is no more
simple EA shutdown Black Box and ever since its been trash. Except hot pursuit 2010
They also seem to have messed with Criterion despite the fact that Criterion kept the franchise relevant last gen. Hot Pursuit was awesome and Most Wanted was good fun as well. It shouldn't have been called Most Wanted but that was EA's call.
they said they wanted to take a year off in 2018 because of franchise fatigue. i‘m sure there will be another one this year. no need to blog about it.
EA is what happened......
Always Online, DLC greed, MTs, etc etc. The usual suspects.
Imagine if AAA gaming companies weren't full of dirtbags. Microsoft could tell playground games to make a spinoff titles Forza: Underground. But it won't happen for obvious reasons.
EA turned into what it is today.
I miss the midnight club series. Rockstar please bring it back.
"Need for Speed -what the Hell happen?" Greed ,lack of understanding what gamer's wanted is what happened. Last great title was High Stakes, Hotpursuit 2, Underground 1,2 Most wanted 2005
EA happened to it
They're working on another game, NFS:NL. It's a mobile version, really good game considering it's mobile to be honest
NFS, Battlefield, Battlefront, Sims City, The Sims, Mass Effect, Dead Space, Command and Conquer, Dungeons Keeper, and Skate. What the hell happened to them?
