BF Heroes was also ruined by greed. Initially it was good! I remember that well!

FUCK YOU EA FOR KILLING EA BIG!!! FUCK YOU FOR KILLING THE STUDIOS THAT MADE OUR FAVOURITE GAMES!! SSX, NBA Street, NFL Street, the best games of my childhood, I still set up my PS2 to play these games, and now, they are gone. Thank you EA, I hope you all burn and die.

Didn't EA also make the harry potter video games? I wish they would have given those games to another company to reboot so we can play them again.

#10 is the reason I’m so leery of working for any major company, but especially one that relies heavily on the creative output of its employees. I spent about a year working for a fashion designer, and the hours were similar to what EA was doing to its employees. They said it’s only for a week at the most, but one week turned into two weeks and eventually several months. I quit after passing out at my workstation one day and being reprimanded for not being a “team player” after I had been there well-past midnight several nights in a row.

Man EA became a hero to enemy through the years makes me sad because it just shows how evil a company can be to absorb money even willing to bend the law

Most of the Devs pushing so hard at EA, can probably make them into indies when they quit.
Shame on you WhatCulture for not mentioning Westwood as one of the studios they have killed off.

How about everything about Origin? Their security is very weak and I never got a cent or even a freebie for the inconvenience of my account being compromised after calling their customer support. Console services like PSN are very generous when their users have been hacked. Speaking of consoles, EA murdering NuFX was so wrong... NBA Street V2 was a decade ahead of its time and I'd say it's still better in every way than NBA Playgrounds (that's just an NBA Jam rip-off).

Road Rash, did anyone play any game from that franchise? Road Rash CD on the Sega CD was my absolute favorite... and instead of reviving it, EA wants us to forget about it...

David Kennedy (2 months ago)
I hope that EA isn't the shape of things to come, that soon all publisher/developers don't go this same money grabbing route. Most of the American film industry has been this way for decades, please don't let the game industry slide down that slippery slope. Games are not just revenue generators, we the players appreciate them for the works of art that some are. Actually, the more I think of this, the more I realise we are already there deep in the abyss of mediocrity!!!

Been gaming a lot of years, and never was much into the sports stuff or Sims line, so tended to avoid EA games. *chuckle* I did buy Populous and Populous 2, Dungeonkeeper & SMAC (which I still play; love my legacy games) and enjoyed them, but there always seemed something "off" about the company. I wasn't surprised when they started getting bad talked on the internet by people.

C'mon WhaCu, be the rock stars you were born to be! Release a vid naming and shaming all individuals concerned with these travesties! It can't be litigated if it's all true! And not just EA; Konami, and all the other culprits. Put a face to the deed! We must know our enemies!

EA is the Roman Empire on it's last legs! But they really hit the nail in the coffin with Star Wars Battlefront 2. They for sure not getting a dime from me, or my future kids, or my grandkids, or my grand grandkids....

Only thing EA cares about is money. Don't care about the staff and don't care about the gamers, they will just do whatever to con gamers into spending money. I remember those days of harry potter, a film gets released then EA milks it by releasing a game of that film, game would be just meh and why play a game based on a film that has just been released.

Me and my best friend were queuing for hours to play dragon age inquisition (online mode) at eurogamer, you had four people sit down and play whatever was assigned to you. When we finally reached the front, two EA representatives that were visiting that day decided to pair with us. Now here’s where it got really annoying; these two people didn’t know how to play a video game let alone a team game, while me and my friend were fighting hordes of enemies, these two, (in particular the healer), were running around in circles mashing buttons fruitlessly. Because they wanted to document there time at eurogamer, someone was taking pictures,, telling us to look like we were having fun, pretend to be friendly with these suited assholes next to us, We got maybe ten minutes out of a 25 minute session, most of which was spent standing at a healer or warrior objective. We were meant to shake each other’s hand afterwards, instead of asking, this guy grabs my hand and tells me to look at the camera. Later on, we see an article, guess who’s suddenly now playing the thief and mage.

EA had a game called "battlefield heroes" - a cartoon style shooter game with millions of players (including me). It was free to play for almost an year and with a huge update, they made every good weapon "pay to use". So many people who were addicted to the game bought those weapons and costumes for real money and in 2 or 3 months they announced they are shutting down the game and did it!!! Pure robbery right there!!!

what's wrong with playing with the taliban? did the USA not fund them in their fight against the soviet union?
Hunter Mods (2 months ago)
Yo, playing as the Taliban is a great move. We're all fucking tired of playing as a generic ass US Army soldier. I'm still waiting for a WW2 game revolving around being a Nazi

Unlike a lot of people I was around during that time when EA was on the rise and in a sense meaning, when they didn’t make bullheaded decisions like pulling off a queef called the Battlefront Duology from 2015 to 2017. Back in the day they had more life to that publisher logo booting screen that would whisper “Challenge Everything”. Those were the days I don’t mind. The problem nowadays is they take talent or so-called talent like DICE and produce the most stomach-wrenching stench in most notoriously their battlefront duology. I almost barely play that shit much if at all. The 2 battlefront games have great glimmer and shine but underneath it all no real polish to cover up how obscenely bad it is. If you compare the 2 Battlefront games now versus the 2004 and 05 games back then when it was just LucasArts you will notice -Since their inception the OG Battlefront games never lacked content and you didn’t really even need the “DLC” being provided on consoles and PC to fully enjoy it -Battlefront 1 and 2 back then the AI was sufficient and challenging enough. Now, if you want to play AI modes, they’re a lot dumber than the Call of Duty AI bots by a long long shot -LucasArts was a much better publisher than EA, not tarnishing a devs work by saying, “You do our dirty bitch work for the game and make it as pretty as possible so we can fuck the players over in every way possible”. I could go on forever but mechanically and intrinsically the old Battlefront games have all the lead over the new ones. Also, when those Battlefronts came out it really felt like there was no way in Hell you were a real Star Wars fan if you hadn’t played them. The new games, you may as well be ridiculed for being a Star Wars fan because by supporting the new games you’re supporting lecherous methods used by EA to completely degrade the fun factor from the game till its indistinguishable from the rest of the turd!

Yeah EA is averaging one studio a year. I love BW games (and still think Andromeda got screwed over but is a great game), but I am very concerned about my go to Studio, I do not want them to be 2018's Victim of the Year for EA (cause I want another ME and DA game)

First one doesn't even make sense. Why would you join one of the largest (game) companies of the world and not expect yourself to be doing A LOT of work?

How could you not forget Origin? They were the company that were creating one of, if not THE biggest RPG series of it's time, Ultima. Not to mention Wing Commander, Crusader (which needed a bit more polish) and the first System Shock. All of these were strong franchises and contributed to the gaming industry in some major ways. And what has happened now? Ultima is now relegated to a long obsolete MMORPG Wing Commander is never coming back Crusader was killed before it could even really get started System Shock was cast into the wind only surviving by the countless games it inspired and influenced and a Unity remaster which is now evidently never going to be finished. But worst of all they relegated the name Origin to a download service. Why? They owned the rights to the name and decided to use it. Origin is to EA as Blue Byte is to Ubisoft; bought, used and abused.

Well, how about the fact that they actually stole the original engine for Madden from Bethesda many years ago, for a deal to help make a sequel to Bethesda's game Gridiron. Of course they never made that game, but at least they got Madden out of the deal, and Bethesda got a lot of nothing.

It was 4Chan who got EA to be voted worst company both times. I agree, but you have to remember to take it with a very large grain of salt.
