EA Games returning to Steam

They're still holding back some exclusives that I'm still not buying, but it's good to see this experiment come to an end.

EA Access is expected to join individual game purchases later this summer.

    Which means that I'll now have another platform to not buy EA games on.

    It's because their game store flopped. The pain is you need to install their game store to make your EA games work on Steam.

    Brenics ~ Just to point out I do believe Chris Roberts is going down as the man who cheated backers and took down crowdfunding for gaming.

    What EA has shown us over MANY years is they are a very greedy business and one that does not care about anyone,not it's own employees not the consumer,they are full on a greedy selfish operation.
    So i don't like to give them any more notoriety or news than they deserve.

    There are some game businesses that are so scummy,i will never forget or forgive.

    EA..Hasbro...Rockstar...Gamigo are some of THE worst businesses on the planet.Yes i understand business,economy,advertising but what these operations do is above and beyond to the point of illegal.

    Since MOST are likely not informed or too young to remember EA did NOT pay it's employees the standard wage by law,they did not pay any over time,nothing,they even forced many to work ridiculous hours 7 days a week and had to live in the offices" to meet crunch time.

    This went on for years,i am sure EA saved multiple millions,i KNOW they saved or stole multiple millions.So a good samaritan lawyer hears a few complaints,i don't remember where it was Reddit maybe idk but he decides to come to their aid.Eventually they have EA cornered,THEY WIN the law suit but then EA still plays hardball and says ok we will offer you this amount AND we want a few other stipulations to make us look like the good guy.In the end EA ended paying far less than what was OWED to the employees...a settlement.
    Point being,don't ever look back on your fellow hard working people ,don't ever side with EA,they are a CROOKED business.

    I just ignore them due to still needing Origin.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    Ya I was highly miffed when I launched Jedi Fallen Order and it popped up a message that Origin needed to install to run the game. It's a pain as when I launch EA games to stream to my nvidia shield, the hand off to Origin does not always work, so I have to get up and run to my PC to fix it. Not the best experience and it takes twice as long to launch a EA game on steam link then any other title.

    I was going to mention that, you have to install a separate installer for many big franchise titles, its a pain but not the end of the world.

    So that's not an issue for me, showing a game that was launched in 2013 as launched in 2020 on Steam is.
