Games "To see anyone defending EA and Maxis for the state of SimCity, even were it in perfect working order on launch, depresses me to my core. This self-flagellation-as-skincare notion, where gamers loudly and proudly defend the destruction of their own rights as consumers, is an Orwellian perversity. That it might be considered in any way controversial to call them out on their crap, to point out that no, always-on DRM is not an advantage to anyone, is bewildering. It's a sign of just how far the gaming world has fallen into the rabbit hole of the publisher's burrowing." As usual, RPS hits the nail on the head so hard it shoots through the board.

Thanks for the heads up with Civitas, I've pledged!

Yep EA buy's up successful game studios then destroy's the game. I was once an avid gamer, spent tons of money on games but the last 10 years I no longer buy. The draconian DRM and the complete lack of quality, it's not worth it.

I did though just recently buy a game on Steam, that was only to support them porting to Linux. But EA games, I refuse to buy anything from them and wish they would just die for being the leeches they are.
