    time paradox,i agree with u to some extent,EA is the largest publisher,but other than medal of honor and NFS series they published nothing good to be proud of...

    il 2 sturmovik forgotten battles it made my eyes bleed simply awful
  3. Let's see..

    - Prey -- PC
    - Battlefield Modern Combat -- XBox
    - Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 1 and 2 -- PC and XBox
    - Fightnight Round 3 -- XBox

    - Oh and it doesn't matter that EA is selling Half-Life 2 on their site, they didn't make it! Valve sells many games from many game developers on Steam, but that doesn't mean that they have to do with the making of the game. They - just - sell - them.

    - I agree that MANY of the EA games produced are rushed out of the door, but the very few that are not turn out very good.

    Where did you find these drugs that would make you so delusional?

    Half-life was made by Valve not EA -slaps-

    sigh, im embarrassed for you for your childishness. Perhaps Half-life 1 was incorrect (my sources were incorrect, although i had them) but you can purchase Half life 2 on the EA site, so they had something to do with it. But the point is that EA is an undeniably huge company, pumping out crap like no tomorrow. But to claim that they have never made anything good is just utter ignorance...

    The only game that really comes to mind is STALKER. I was extremely hyped up for this game and it got pretty good reviews but then I installed it and played it for about half an hour and I just was like, wait this game is crap. Never played it since. There was just something about STALKER. It was like it was a good game, the developers just left out the fun factor, or any form of factor that actually made you want to play the game.

    Thats my opinion anyways.

    Tell me 1 game that was good by EA?

    Also Half-life 1 and 2 and episode 1 ( and 2 when it comes out ) is all by Valve

    EA just made a crappy port of it from PC to Xbox which sucked out loud...

    Well, had you not chosen to ignore previous posts, you would know. But I will reiterate and expand upon what I had said before. The Command and Conquer series, Madden series, Medal of Honor Series, The Sims Series, Battlefield 2142, LOTR series.They have also made the upcoming greats like Rock Band, Skate, Cyrsis(which won best PC game of E3 2007). That is just a short list and I'm not claiming I personally love all those games, but if you want to claim that EA never made any good games, you might as well admit you don't like video games...

    If we had the karma system you would have the worst, for publically letting TS know you jacked someone's server. Not only that, you gripe about the wrong stuff. Like Nvidea not having capital "N" and the mispelling of Geforce. GG karma gogo gadget karma system.

    The legend of Zelda 2, whatever it was called, for the nintendo. I remember by dad bringing it home and I was playing it, and I was sooo confused. I never got past the first rock after 3 hours of playing and no results

    lol nice Dabears :haha:

    But still, EA does suck and always will...

    When they 1st started I admit they had a few cool games but now it's freaking duplicating every single game they ever created, adding crappy new features and calling it "Sims 2 Pets!!!11!" or some **** like that

    UbiSoft vs. EA = Ubisoft wins because their games arn't the same thing over and over and their main titles like Prince of Persia and Splintercell are some of the best games I ever played :haha:

    friends,though it is correct that most of the EA games are not impressive yet i think that as a game developer or publisher EA is not as bad as microsoft.from age of empire to rise of legends,from train simulator to zoo tycoon,from fable to halo none of them are enjoyable,all are like educational softwares with age old graphics,even a new game like halo 2 is looking very outdated visually where all characters and terrain are looking like some geometrical patterns.long ago i played rainbow six rogue spear,all characters were as small as ants,and forest,river,sky all were like coloured rectangles,from that position ubisoft has become able to develop modern rainbow and ghost reckon games with flawless audio visual quality,but look at halo 2,same poor graphics(god knows where and how they use directx 10 technology),as primitive as old halo...

    ACTUALLY... Fable wasn't made by Microsoft ;)

    It was made by LionHead studios in UK :D

    plus games arn't all about graphics, My computer can play all my games on Max but I still choose to play on low for better performance

    If you play games only to look at the pretty pictures then you wasted $50

    A lot of people bash Phantom Menace, but I rather liked it, at least, the Playstation version that is. My father almost bought me the PC version at the time since it was about $20 bucks cheaper, but I'm glad I didn't have to endure the woes that Barney described. I'll stick with my PSX version thanks.

    But ladies and gentlemen, you don't know bad until you've played The Last Battle for Sega Genesis. Either that, or one of the countless poorly-made side-scrolling Mario imitation knock-offs for the original Nes, preferably one that's also a cheap knock-off of a popular film, like Who Framed Roger Rabbit, BeetleJuice or Back to the Future. If you're feeling adventerous, grab a ROM of either and be prepared to be blown away by the awfulness.

    But if that's not enough craptastic fun for you, try E.T. or Custer's Revenge for Atari 2600. Don't try the latter unless you're over 18. In fact, don't try the latter if you're human and from the planet Earth. Just don't. At all. I'm warning you. Don't. You'll regret it and want those five minutes of your life back - IF you even last that long.

    Well, Howard the Duck; if you want to go back that far, how about Indiana Jones & The Temple of Doom and Ghosts & Goblins (or Ghouls & Goblins, can't remember exactly) for the Atari 2600?
  20. Howard the Duck

    Howard the Duck TS Rookie Posts: 36

    Certainly. I've heard the arcade version of Temple of Doom was actually pretty good for the time, but the consoles couldn't retain the quality, and many tried.

    I haven't played Ghouls and Goblins, but since most Atari games are pretty bad by today's standards, I'll trust your judgment.

    If i would have read the review for GRAW2 before buying it for PSP i would have saved money.

    Im only greatful because i needed to update my PSP so i can connect it to my PS3..its awesome...now I needa put videos on them.

    Mafia for PS2 is also a wack game
