    So appropriate,  because it highlights the fact despite multiple missteps, EA still makes money hand over fist.

    I guess because many gamers are either very forgiving, desperate, or stupid, take your pick.

    Of course it helps if you buy out all possible contenders....

    Of course when it comes to studios coming under the thrall of EA it usually ends a bit more like this story.

    Almost right,  but when studios get acquired by EA usually the former "heads" are the first to be lipped off.

    LOL! GG xD

    My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

    I was going more for the treated like a thing instead of a person or persons angle. EA thoughtlessly disposing of the people that made the company they bought great in the first place is all part of that.

    I'd like to see also Firaxis up there next to Valve guy (they just couldn't make it with Civilization 6).

    But even though gaming companies suck big time these days it's good to see movies are getting better and better every year (you can't go wrong with Coen brothers, can you?).
