EA is making a royal mess of things

I haven’t exactly been impressed with EA over the past several months and they’re iPad offerings. And now they really seem to have made a mess of things. To start at the beginning, games like Monopoly, while decent are exceedingly overpriced. The same is true for Scrabble and Yahtzee. Those are simple casual games and they can’t seem to get them right.

But when you couple that with some poor game play, excessive bugs and bad updates and it’s no wonder EA is screwing up on titles like Battlefield 3 and Simpson: Tapped Out. I haven’t even looked at Monopoly Hotels because I’m totally against in-app purchases.

Here’s the problem, stop making these piece of crap Freemium games! Nobody wants them and they’re aggravating as hell! Make a decent game and charge me a fair price for it. Don’t keep rolling out these half-assed, half-baked games that annoy the hell out of me with demands to spend money to progress through your frustrating game. Gameloft made two fun golf games in the Let’s Golf series, but when they rolled out Let’s Golf 3, the game sucked and it showed Gameloft had completely lost their focus. The same problem happened in Oregon Trail. They make a new iPad version, I scoop it up for $0.99 and then get ads and nags as soon as I start playing. What the hell is that about? Both games have been deleted and I haven’t bought a new game from EA or Gameloft since.

Both companies have become greedy and exceptionally lazy. You can’t just throw out a title and expect everyone to hand over cash to keep playing – especially when you release crap titles.

Maybe this will be a wakeup call to developers – make a decent game, charge a decent price and we’ll all get along. Keep making junk and you’ll find yourself pulling game titles and getting horrible write-ups from all over the web.
