Just wanted to say that I tend to listen to people who sound like reasonable human beings, and don't call other names or use ad hominem arguments in general. So I think I'll check out the game. Not that I think it's all peachy, but I'm just anti-anti.
Good for you! See, even if you make a simple statement, these same folks will jump all over you and bash your opinion. If one hates something as benign as a game it's time to move on in life.
Because that's what stocks are supposed to be - long term investments. You can't tell most people that, which is why most people should never own stock.Scorchien said:I got it for 15$ a share in 08 ..has been a great investmentKyleran said:EA is fine, the stock price isn't reflective of the firm's actual health, more of a reflection on investors "beliefs" about it's future success.d_20 said:Is the stock still tanking?
EA Shares PLUMMET, EA Down $6bn! Plus New SWBFII Credits Changes
To put things in perspective, EA stock had a huge and probably unsustainable run up this year peaking at $122.79 per share.
Current price is $105 so the drop is substantial true, but it is still well over the 52 week low of $76.42.
EA is still the same gaming juggernaut today as it was when the stock was at its low, and they continue to make much of their revenue from sports franchises which appear to be embracing the new gaming as a service model more readily.

Keep Government out of internet!

We have better technologies in the 1990s.MightyUnclean said:Well, Gemstone IV was a bust. The game lagged horrendously in the browser with just a handful of people in an area, and the downloadable game client (last updated in 2007) didn't do anything at all when launched. It's a shame, what I played seemed really cool.
Yeah, I was really surprised. I mean, I'd type, and there would be a 20 second delay before the text appeared on the screen.
The community voted, well 32k people, and they have very little interest in group finders for vanilla. I'm surprised you didn't even reference this poll.
My opinion is that nothing should be changed unless 75%+ of players support it.
