Games From the BioWare blog: "Today, BioWare co-founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk have announced they are retiring from BioWare." Dragon Age II may have been an abomination of a game, and Mass Effect 2 had some considerable issues as well, but that doesn't negate the fact that BioWare has created some of the best games in history. Thanks, guys, for hundreds and hundreds of hours of great gaming, and good luck with any future projects.

You might want to get to know a bit more about computer games before making such statements. For example, EA powered both Black & White and Thom's beloved American McGee's Alice. Battlefield 3, while not my type of game, is certainly a quality piece of work.

Sorry for ruining your hipster hating on EA.

[EDIT] PS: You have to hate on Activision/Blizzard these days, not EA.

Black & White and Thom's beloved American McGee's Alice


Both are more than 10 years old...

Battlefield 3, while not my type of game, is certainly a quality piece of work.


maybe DICE is the exception.

As a dedicated fan of FPSes in general and the Battlefield series in particular, I would strongly disagree. The BF series jumped the shark after BF2. BF3 looks nothing like the original, nor does it play anything like it.

Want a good, cartoonish FPS? The Borderlands series and TF2 are far better games.

Want a FPS that encourages teamplay naturally? Counter-Strike, CS:S, Team Fortress, TFC, TF2, BF2 and the original BF games are great choices.

Want a decent FPS that does a good job of blending realistic factors with solid gameplay? Go for Day of Defeat:Source, DoD, Red Orchestra, or Red Orchestra 2.

Want a FPS that is monomaniacal in its pursuit of realism that still provides some really solid gameplay? The ArmA series and its granddaddy Operation Flashpoint is one option. The freebie America's Army series is another.

This barely scratches the surface of what's available. IOW, there are lots and lots of good choices from publishers both big and small. No need to get wrapped up in the hype of BF3 or CoD.
