    EA on Linux... I don't know if it's a good or a bad thing :\ I'm going to avoid anything related to them as much as I can. Mostly for their draconian DRM, incomplete games, fake DLCs, reported customer service and working conditions.

    It's amazing how long EA runs for... Hawkins' other company, 3DO, went belly up a while ago when they started rushing for gold. Of course, EA had the upper hand of being able to buy out other companies, which definitely helps. But even then, I doubt they will be able to continue like this for that long.

    If we need sports games we don't need EA's, we need the ones that used to be fun to play like NBA Jam and NFL Blitz not the canned reskin games that EA has been selling for a decade.

    Even their non sports games are terrible. Army Of Two had so much potential yet failed miserably.

    Never seeing my money

    EA is probably the worst thing to happen to gaming, they'll never see a Zimbabwe dollar from me.

    ummm
    With marketing speeches, I've often seen simple statements like that stretch on for longer than 15 minutes. And damn does it get boring when they do.

    LOL I'm comparing "what if" to "what if" . . . I don't see a problem here. You sound like you would have never believed in the airplane or the personal computer until you saw it in person.

    Oh well. If you bring us Mass Effect, EA, I will forgive you.
