Five good reasons why - EA failed this year

4182 ratings | 174531 views
2013 has been a disastrous year for EA. The publisher had to write more apology letters than Tiger Woods after a Bangkok vacation. Here are five good reasons why EA completely screwed up this year. - Music by: [Nu Disco] - Televisor - The Chase [Monstercat Release] Licensed by Monstercat: http://youtube.com/MonstercatMedia 5. Simcity disaster SimCity has had one of the worst releases in recent memory. Problems with EA's servers meant gamers were unable to play this online only game for days after launch. The publisher apologized and offered a free game to make up for the DRM disaster. 4. Battlefield 4 epic fail EA pushed Battlefield 4 out the door early in order to beat Call of Duty to the market and boy did it backfire. The many glitches, bugs and crashes made the online mode basically unplayable. EA says its working hard on patches to resolve the issues. 3. Command and Cancelled Command and Conquer fans were in for an unpleasant surprise when Electronic Arts suddenly cancelled the free-to-play reboot months before release. We spoke with developer Victory Games at the E3 this year and the game actually looked kind of promising. What a shame. 2. NBA Live 14 embarrassment NBA Live made its return this year after a lengthy period on the bench but it wasn't the triumphant comeback EA had hoped for. Critics described the graphics as "PS2-like" with gameplay that felt just as dated. The difference between Lebron James in NBA Live 14 and NBA 2K14 says it all. Ouch. 1. Worst Company in America EA won the Consumerist poll for being the "Worst Company in America" for the second year in a row in 2013. And judging by all the screw ups on this list they kind of deserve the title. Lets hope they learn from their mistakes and won't win it a third time next year.

EA have the best graphics for me Why is it worst?Because the game stop working?All the games they can crash.

Troll? Gaming is more than "GRAPHICS". Star Wars Battlefront has perfect Graphics, but no Story Mode. Graphics of NFS aren't bad either, but steering,physics and customization aswell as the crappy cutscenes are shit. Think about that,bro.

Just on the national news today how EVERYBODY is"disappointed" with EA's peformance.  EA's marketing department figures they choke our favorite games & wring them for cash selling licences to cheat openly like spy snitch traitors were cool like them.  Guess when theres that much mula involved, the temptation to "get some" must be overwhelming?

I know EA created one of the most popular games in history ( battlefield, fifa, e.t.c) but they r one of the worst company ever made.

This is why I specifically pirate games from EA lol. Except the first 2 mass effects, loved those games enough to support Bioware, three was fucked up though.

The NASCAR games what ever happened to them I remember spending hours playing them 05,06,07 all where great you contracted yourself out to race someone elses car then when you got the money you bought your own car in 05 then in 06 and 07 you could own your favorite NASCAR team and had multiply racing categories that you could race in, but races often conflicted between racing associations so you had to hire drivers for your car in those series but it was very entertaining then they took the games and turned them into shit.

Guys dont blame on ea.. They have heart and soul and they're humans Everyone makes mistakes.. Its not fair to do this.. And yep if u didn't know ea has most of the games like all of harry potter games, all origin games and other games.. Just guys u need to know that Microsoft is the best company this year.
DotoMoto Production (3 years ago)
oh well u r right...a little bit...
It's hard to like EA when they shut down your favorite developer. Pandemic was shut down by them. They made Destroy All Humans 1 and 2. I loved those games. The franchise got sold to Nordic Games and they ruined it for me. EA is evil, that's my opinion, and that's where I stand.
Khristian4444 (3 years ago)
They still fuck after 2014 as well!
Khristian4444 (3 years ago)
Ea kill command conquer that beyond, retard from EA! That just evil of ea my theory of issue, they did't have pay to win items or want cut story for as play DLC?  That was just evil of to just drop command conquer! Reboot

They arent perfect, no one is.  You gotta stick with them, shoot they are making Star Wars Battlefront for us, if we keep giving them grief then they will cancel more things.  If we stick with them and give them time, boom we will have great games.

+John Ciolfi do you wanna the truth ?? Well i didn't play any game from Ea sport just fifa series (12-15) and ssx which was awesome but i heard the other games were so glitchy and a shity graphic.i prefer NBA and WWE from 2K games, they always make a good sport game !!

Rafael Lopez (2 years ago)
+Emmett Brown nope at least most game compannies make games for free. If EA was a mobile game companny they would make us pay $10.00 for flappy bird and $8.00 more in case you wanted the bird pink. But of course you can gain diamonds to earn the blue bird, but you only get one diamond every one hundred points score you make. Now all you need is 600 hundred diamonds, but if you want the blue bird right now then you have 10 diamond packs that are worth $5.00 dollars each. Don't believe they would do this then just look at battle front EA, but that's not a mobile game, and yet clash of clans wishes to be that evil.

Worst company?! C'mon they publish the most epic games like Battlefield, FIFA, Madden, Syndicate, Mirror's Edge, NFS etc. How is it the worst?
martin poon (4 years ago)
U r right about they did release good titles( like dead space etc) , but once the title sales ,they will spam the title and rush to release, even it is not finish or copy and paste.Not to mention they make pricy dlc which should be in game without extra payment. More outraging is that, they executed many creative title and force their studios to do what they want. If the game don't sales, they just dismiss the studio. Even their studios hate EA.  The fact is ,you actually like their studios, not EA. EA treat their titles and studio like shit. EA only see money.

Boycott EA or PirateBay that shit . . . Get Your SHIT together EA, or die. It's 2014 and I don't understand why we need BIG business ANYTHING let alone these blooksucking vampires aka PUBLISHERS like EA. Support Indie game makers.  Transistor looks more creative and beautiful than anything I've seen in EA's roster. Hello Games' "No Man's Sky" is my most anticipated game of 2014 and yes it's still coming out this year even though the developer had their entire office FLOODED and destroyed with no insurance coverage.  Those guys are legit.
