Games such as NASCAR Rumble, The Urbs, Sims in the city (DS and GBA versions) Sim city 4, dulex edition, Sims 3, Nascar 2002-2007, Spore (To an extent, though the final product was a bit disappointing compared to the advertisements,) Mirror's edge, Star wars battlefront 2 (2005 classic), and Need for speed Hot pursuit (My fav was the one for the PS3, PC, and Xbox 360).
It's a shame to see how much EA has fallen these days. I'll grant you, they've had issues back then as well, but nothing like today. Surprise mechanics and electronic pusdo-Kinder-eggs,(IE Lootboxes), kids spending hundreds to thousands on Fifa Gambling (Ie lootboxes again), The broken state of Mass effect Andromeda's release, the mess of Star wars battle front 2 (non 2005 classic), the pandering of Battlefield 5, and so many other issues I'm losing my breath just thinking about it!
Growing up in the late 90's-2000's, EA had made some of my favorite games, but now all I can see is piles of garbage. Back in the day I had fun with a game like spore, even though the game was watered down quite a lot in comparison to what EA advertised it to be. I found a lot of fun in games such as the GBA versions of the Sims, and in The sims 2, Castaway for the PS2, Xbox, and PSP. Even some of the newer games such as Mirror's edge and Need for speed Hot pursuit where quite fun in my opinion. Before 2010, (or maybe 2008), When I saw that EA was on the title, I could at least have some faith that game would be complete and fun. Now I don't even want to buy from them.
