Games "Why has the SimCity story gone away? It's a good question. And the answer for it reveals much about how both the games industry, and the games journalism industry, work." Telling - not just for the game journalism, but all of it. As a sidenote, you can always rely on Rock Paper Shotgun to bring the best gaming news. Under-appreciated gem of online news reporting.

The worst part is that this is not the first time this fiasco happens. EA should have learned with what happened with Diablo III, for example.


So should their customers. As you say, this isn't the first time this has happened - so why do people keep rewarding EA for screwing up, by handing over yet more of their money?

Definitely. We can only hope that people will stop buying EA crap in the future. On the other hand, EA should not be excused because it's EA, just because they always create crap doesn't mean we will stop criticizing them for creating said crap.
