I personally hate them because Jeremy said he hates them.

And yes, if Jeremy ever jumps off a bridge...

Well when they took over Westwood during Yuri's they began to suck. Then Generals came out which was an ok game, but the UI was changed drastically and I don't believe it deserverd the C&C name. Then when they announced that they would no longer patch ZH, I hated them. Fucking gay Humvee/Rocket glitch.

I hate them for all those fucking ads in some of thier games (Burnout 3, Need for Speed Underground 2 and Most Wanted). Also for thier greedy takeover of the NFL license just so people can only buy thier shitty and rushed football games.

well i guess knocking NFL 2k out of the race helped in the end.......

Why do we hate EA again?

They buy all rights, such as Movie rights, and shit like that, also sports like madden NBA, and such. Basicly we hate them because they have a huge monopoly over the market in Video Game making.

I don't.
My brother got a job off of having no life and playing Madden all the time.


www.maddenauthority.com pays him 100 dollars a week just to have his picture on their website and to be affiliated with him. My brother makes a lot more money playing madden then I do having a real part-time job. lol.

Most of us don't actually hate EA, we just say we do to be like Jeremy. So its more of the question of why Jeremy hates EA. I don't really think Jeremy hates EA anymore. He looked really excited for C&C 3 at E3. So, to all of you Jeremy-wannabes: stop hating EA just because you think it's the cool thing to do. It's not. icon_neutral.gif

Yes, I'm looking at you, Vulgarity...

Uhm, did you not read the thread? A lot of people gave some legitimate reasons for hating EA. Yeah, I'm sure hes excited for C&C 3 and it'll be a great game I'm sure until they stop supporting it, which is why he hated EA in the first place, they stopped supporting ZH.

People play Madden games?

Anyways, the only reason there are good EA games is because they try to buy every profiting game developer in the world. We hate them for doing this while not supporting their games. Gives a new meaning to "Challenge Everything". Their slogan is besically "We want to monopolize gaming".

Oh, and eh, sorry Weiman, but I'm moving this to General Gaming.

I hate EA because their acronym is made up of two vowels. Say "EA, EA, EA... " a bunch of times and tell me it doesn't sound weird. They wouldn't suck so much if it was... say, "EXA" or something cooler. Not too sure what the X could stand for though... Maybe if they somehow incorporated X-Rays or Xena into the game publishing.
