This group was created to demonstrate our dissatisfaction with the company known as Electronic Arts, EA. We believe that for too long now, EA has been abusing its power over their in-house developers by making them set very strict deadlines which reduces quality control and sometimes forces them to release products that are either poorly made or not even finished properly, leading to the possibility that the cut or 'planned' content that was to be in the main release of the game is now forced to be output as DLC.
Since the creation of their online platform Origin (formally known as EA Downloader Manager) EA has been shifting focus on the PC platform to their Origin client. The worst part about this is, even though most of their games can still be bought from the likes of GreenManGaming and Gamersgate, we haven't seen anything that requires Origin appearing on steam.
People say that steam is not different by not offering their titles on other Digital stores, but this is not true, impulse is known to be selling a few Valve titles e.g. http://www.impulsedriven.com/portal2
However, more to the point we recognise that:
-EA is a company with financial needs, just like any other company or coporation
-There are some popular franchises that some in-house developers produce that are still very much liked by the gaming community, and thus disagree with us to an extent
-EA has been known to support the controversial SOPA.
-EA have been known to be shutting down a lot of servers and services in many different games (some recent, some not, but still had a small community), while other companies have been keeping servers active for online multiplayer games that are practically dead.
-EA has been known to be one of the first to pioneer the online pass and on-the-disk/day 1 DLC.
Since most groups in the steam community are dead, we made a new, and active one.
Please Contribute to this group, by inviting your steam friends, and spread the word in chats and on forums. Post in the comment field about your experiences with EA.
