unlikely: Look at how much Angry Birds Friends is making just on Facebook and then tell me why EA shouldn't be looking green with envy.
ReapTheChaos: ReapTheChaos: You realize that Steam isn't a game publisher right? They just distribute games from all publishers, including EA.
Slayinit: I grew up with dedicated consoles (e.g. Pong, Tank, Light Gun units) with my first 'real' system being the 2600. Saw the crash of '83 and cleaned up handsomely from the wreckage. Stayed with gaming up until the PS2 & Dreamcast and was ready to move on until my brother gave me a 360 about 6 years ago. I still play now & then but the idea of paying for additional game content & connectivity really turned me off.In all, gaming has gotten too complicated. Between DLC, credit cards, micro-transactions, & the possibility of not playing used games for free, I'm pretty much done. Luckily, my kids are fairly indifferent to the console scene and play some garbage on their phones in between real kid activities. I think I'm pretty lucky to grow up when I did./Lawns//Metroid!
ZeroCorpse: GreenAdder: ZeroCorpse: You buy Madden 2015 for $60....No, I don't. I play "Mutant League Football" on the Genesis - back from when EA gave a crap. Incidentally it's one of the few football games I care for.Yeah, it's too bad EA had to rip off Games Workshop's Blood Bowl to "create" it. It's an awesome game (which should have been rebooted years ago) but they very definitely borrowed some IP for that one.

ArcadianRefugee: sno man: As long as you don't have to make these purchases to play, even if it takes longer without, carry on.This. If the purchases enhance the game, or make it easier: fine. If the purchases are needed to play the game through to the end, then fark 'em.
error 303: They do this because people will pay. We've no one to blame but ourselves.
GreenAdder: GreenAdder to stop purchasing EA titles.
