EA Games, Ruins everything. well they have killed all of my favorite games from the command and conquer series, to Ultima, Bullfrog studios, I normally avoid buying anything with their logo, but....
last weekend I went to EB games,.. I looked and there was Lord of the rings : Conquest, looked ok, decided to buy it, not reading the giant warning label "EA Games" I installed the game and EA Games started up, and was like well maybe they have changed, so I started playing the game, and hated at the character selection screen, I played it for about 5 mins, and decided it would be better to have scurvy, and tossed it.
I should have learned my lesson the last time, yes sim city 4 kinda sucked, but maybe sim city societies will fix some of that and the game will be good again, nope scurvy again.
At least Cities XL, looks like its recaptured the way sim city should have went. I like all these smaller gaming company's taking games in a direction that gamers actually want games to go in. Thats why when I saw in the Elemental forums that only until the developers and beta tester's decided the game was sufficiently fun without next gen graphics would they add them, and the fact that they encourage suggestion's and such..
