i wish SEGA would be crazy and buy the rights i mean could you imagine the insanity of said undertaking and how it could rekindle the fires of the fading RTS genre! and if not then we always have Thrid Age Total War....Rome 2 Edition!
Unless they buy the rights to the game franchise, I doubt it. It's still a really good mod for those wanting them epic LOTR battles.

i have just heard both sides i suppose that EA favors consoles over pc but maybe i am crazy i think i just wish there where more RTS games on the PC
[QUOTE="vfibsux"] I'm sure you and the other few Americans will bare this grudge against them forever. They stopped porting it and nobody else tries to make such a game, because American Football doesn't sell anywhere except America where people interested are all on consoles, like FIFA doesn't sell much in America, but Europe where PC is still dominant by far.
[QUOTE="DanielDust"]You're crazy, EA doesn't hate PC, EA releases absolutely anything that has even a slim chance of being sold on PC as for LA, why would anyone care? how many decades has it passed since they were actually making games worth playing?DanielDust
EA is a business, they're the most fair developers/publishers out there when it comes to platform affinity, they don't care about platforms, they care about money, an example would be ME, the super awesome and PC loving developer called Bioware made that game as a console exclusive, EA is the reason this series also began on PC and continued due to EA purchasing them.
Also, it seems this thread turned from a title used to draw attention and start some controversy into, you just want more RTSs, EA isn't responsible of the RTS genre, all developers are, you have RTSs to play and they're made well enough to last till another title gets released, RTS is niche, they don't sell, only Blizzard, CA and Firaxis makes good money off strategy games nowadays, we don't have many RTSs because everyone knows this and few want to risk an investment that will surely not make decent profits. Money comes from action games and FPSs that's why those are made in hundreds every year.
no not really i was just stating that in general because lets face it you dont see many RTS's anymore. I just would wish people would be more excited for RTS's and not so much FPS's or get more pumped for Rpgs or RTTS or even Space Sims if developers and publishers would put more faith in PC but that is my opinion anyway so take it or leave it
[QUOTE="Lord_Cocoo_Puff"]Funny, up until a couple years ago Lucasarts was pretty much all PC as far as I recall. EA us a piece of crap that would destroy gaming altogether if it would make a profit. Yes I know fanboys, it is a business, and I get that. There is still a difference between good business and bad business. I will never forgive EA for taking Madden from the PC and for making sure no one else could make another NFL PC game either.well the last good LA game i remember playing on PC was Empire at War and that was 7 years ago? and i agree EA hates steam so they use Orgin to try and monopolize the PC market (again i may be wrong but right now im tired) i just wish people would take us more seriously and mayhaps make games that are made for PC and not Console Games just delayed for 2 weeks and then released on PC
This has always bugged me about EA and Lucasarts is that i always felt as though that they hated PC gaming. Am I crazy or is their any truth to this at all?
