I don't doubt that people put work into fine tuning the experience, and day one DLC isn't really an issue for me. It's on disc DLC that puts a hedgehog in my prostate, if I already paid for a game, and there for own it, why can I not access what is on the disc fully. It's like buying a pair of trousers and being charged extra to use one of the pockets, it's madness.
As for EA sports, it's the fact that people a blind enough to buy Madden and Fifa each year and have to audacity to see me in a line at the same game shop and see me with a game that took years to make, and tell me it's shit, not based on personal experience mind you, but because they think the cover art looks gay. (Seriously happened) I know people are entitled to their own opinions, but there is a fine line between opinionated and being a gaping ovary clearing.
What I'm trying to say is, EA are leading an example (and the figures show) that safe sequels, tacked on multiplayer, online-fucking-passes and yearly releases that are almost identical to the prequel make for a much less, more stagnant market. It's EA's boldfaced arrogance that pisses me off. Worst still other company's follow suit. I don't hate their games as much, it's EA or at least the people working at EA I don't like, and I don't mean the hard working developers.
