    Yes, because they made so many The Sims games, and each and every last one of them sucked. I think there have been like 15 The Sims version in some way/shape/form with more to come, they all suck, they always will, and I hate EA for doing that to a game franchise, its more ridiculous than Pokemon ever was.

    It wasn't just the lack of Live support which caused many to hate EA on the Xbox. It was the utter lack of respect for anything they put out on the Xbox. The ports that had no changes made to utilize Xbox hardware. Hell quite a few suffered lower framerates or visual problems than on the inferior PS2.

    They have a lot of catching up to do inorder to win back me as a fan.

    BTW, check out my web series, Drafted, animated using EA's game Battlefield Vietnam. :wink:

    I'll still hate EA. I hated EA when all I had to play on was my friends PS2. Then when I got an xbox my hatred grew for similar reasons LynxFX put up.

    I don't hate them to a point where I just won't play their games though. I had lots of fun with Fight Nights when I rented it.

    because they keep raping the james bond franchise... when i heard that they were making a goldeneye 2 or whatever irritates me because they will never come close to what the original goldeneye was...they're just trying to cash in on the goldeneye name

    I can't say I particularly hate EA, I just have little interest in them. The main reason being that I only play one sports game for every twenty other games. Sports is what EA does most. Actually, they don't really make any good games outside of sports, So, they make decent sports games that I have no interest in playing, and they also make crappy action and adventure that I have no interest in playing.

    Also, their treatment of the DC pretty much marked them as jerks. Now with the Xbox, they are just doing what comes naturally.

    Lynxfx said it perfectly, however, there are only a couple game developers that bother making games that fully utilize the power of the XBox. Maybe three... But, fortunately, more on the way and I don't expect EA to follow in their tracks...I hope they prove me wrong.

    I am not ashamed to say that the people that don't play EA games are the people loosing out. They have very solid titles that have great licenses! I personally don't have live so I don't feel the loss! I have alwasys been a fan of ea, reguardless of them utilizing the power of the xbox. I thought it is the gameplay and content of the games that makes them good, not what or what not it supports! I couldn't imagine missing the new bond game. It was really good! Here are a couple other ea games that are good imo.

    nfsu - best racer
    metal of honor
    fifa - best soccer game
    freedom fighters
    fight night 2004 - best boxing game
    tigerwoods - best golf game hands down
    nba live - best basketball game
    nascar 2004 - best nascar game
    nba street vol 2
    nfl street
    lord of the rings series
    etc
    etc

    I've never really hated EA......but I would buy more of their games if they had xbox live. oh and a little bit of news.....the next timesplitters game will be Online ONLY for PS2.....so xbox owners will have to stick to split screen. Is this game an EA game?

    New rumor has it that they will support Live but we would have to pay. My hate for EA would grow even more if they do that and dont charge ps2 owners as well.

    The only game I enjoy with an "EA" logo on it is Freedom Fighters.. and I guess they didnt even really make that game.

    EA still can't figure out how to make a game use System Link - and most of their games are made on the PS2 engine and then ported over to the XBox - if I'm going to play something EA, it'll be on the PC.

    Here's a better question, who will actually start supporting ea after they make games for xbox live? Will anyone else buy NHL 2005 even though he/she has not bought any EA games for the xbox? I certainly will! Sports is what EA does best.

    As far as sports go, I've more or less been converted to sega. If they make the better game, I'll probably go w/ them, but at least as far as football goes, I don't think madden has been as good. (just my opinion)

    I'll have no trouble buying EA games as long as they've got the best for whatever I'm looking for at the moment. I don't see EA developing for live as anything too great though. Nice to have 'em, but I certainly haven't missed them either.

    Wow, this place sure has changed. I haven't been here for awhile, anyway.

    Sorry, but I got to say. Seriously, EA Sports is the only company that knows how to make a decent hockey game. I'll be pickin up NHL '05 as soon as it comes out on Live.

    Hey, I know I'm not speakin' for myself here. I know some of you, just like myself and the Jackal, grew up playing the old school EA Hockey games.

    As for the other games they make.....WHO CARES! There strong point is their hockey games. period.

    First of all, i dont want to start a debate, but i really dont see anything that i am missing. Its Obvious that you love EA's products, because its seeping on my screen. I have no problem with that. Now, I cant say im a fan of EA, but i dont hate them either. I primarily play sports games, so what youre sayin about we are missing out on their games, is totally biased. Anyone can testify to this: if i have played madden 2002 then i pretty much played madden 2003 and 2004. Right? Also the same with live, which is a special case since they made that freestyle control then their 2003 and 2004 versions are pretty much the same. So what am i missing out on. The roster updates?? The minor tweaks?? I was at my home boy crib today and he has a PS2 and the madden 2004 looks exactly like the XBOX version. You know what that mean?? They make the ps2 version first and then change the code for the xbox, thats why theres no difference, visually, between the two. Also, tell me why the xbox version suffer from framerate problems compared to the ps2 version?? We all know that the ps2 is inferior(as far as whats under the hood). But EA goes with who can make the most money for them and thats all. Since you dont have LIVE you dont know what you're missing the random opponents, leagues and roster updates. Get LIVE and then YOU TELL ME.
