Oooh, me too! Let's all pile on the hate for EA. They didn't earn that Golden Poo for nothing. So let me bullet-point what's on my mind (nothing original, just venting).
1) Origin. Look, I understand the appeal of getting a slice of that Steamy pie. However, if you're going to make a play for it, how about making it good? Don't embarrassing yourself with a system that's buggy, incompatible with many firewalls, and crosses wires with Steam (see my previous post). It's awful, and I have uninstalled it.
2) Dumbing down games. Why do they need to appeal to lowest common denominator? Their games seem to get simpler and simpler, taking more and more of control and immersion away from the player. Look at the changes from Dragon Age: Origins to DA2, and the same goes for Mass Effect. Some of the changes were good (loved the combat in DA2), but the overall simplification doesn't appeal to me. I like being able to choose between sets of armor or types of sniper rifle, I don't want that restricted.
3) Dishonesty. Lying about the restricted on-disc content for ME3 was pretty low, and they got caught on it. This shows that they have no respect for their paying customers, and even a little disdain us. I also do not believe that the non-ending to ME3 was truly part of their "artistic vision". The truth is that they were going to make the ending DLC to be made available later this year, but they underestimated (another manifestation for their indifference and contempt) how poorly it would be received. Which leads to:
4) Nickle and diming. More like $5 and $10...ing. I don't know how to apply the gerund to those values, but still. And it's never discounted, never bundled...I mean, all the Dragon Age 2 DLC will now set you back 3 or 4 times what the game itself costs. An Ultimate Edition which contains it all would be nice, but maybe they've abandoned that practice.
I also fear that the recent uproar over the ME3 (non)ending will drive home a bad lesson for EA. I think their takeaway is that we want conclusive endings very badly, and that means (to them) another potential for DLC. Sure, the backlash may make them learn a good lesson, but this is EA we're talking about. They've got bad margins and a dropping stock value - we have not seen the last of their "revenue stream innovation".
