      Yeah, that’s the wrong word. “Extracted” or “looted” or “stole” are all more appropriate.

      Execs call that “next CEO’s problem” while they plan how to spend the money from their golden parachutes.

      Imo their slop isn’t even worth pirating or discussing as actual items to consider playing. Everyone should just completely blacklist companies like this and let them suffer

        Unfortunately they do have some decent games published.

        “A way out” and “it takes two” were both really good games ( hazelight studios ). No surprise mechanics, no predatory anything. Just coop fun!

      Giving any of these big studios money at this point is lacking self respect IMHO. These hogs got fat about time gamers showed them who controls the money flow.

    It’s not the job of EA execs to keep offices open or people employed. It’s their job to drive profit above anything else, no sacrifice is too great.
