Phương Nguyễn : EA Games move from challenge everything to ruin everything

David J A : Cant spell Steal without EA

X7 Albert : We still want Skate 4...

songhuchoe : Story of EA: "You Either Die A Hero, Or You Live Long Enough To See Yourself Become The Villain"

Turbojet : I'm surprised you didn't need a season pass to watch this video...

Erica Croft : "At least they haven't wrecked StarWars Battlefront yet". RIP

Istir : Why is EA the worst developer in US? Because Ubisoft is from France

Business Casual : Small correction at 10:05. I say that EA's profits went from $8m to $875m, when it would've been more accurate to say it was their net income that went up by this amount. Apologies, and thanks for watching!

HarrybosPlums : Business Casual- "At least they haven't ruined Star Wars battlefront yet". EA- "Hold my beer"

danky : "At least they haven't wrecked Star Wars battlefront yet". You sure about that?

Danny Boy Jango : EA killed C&C. I will never forget this.

Grom Bmista : Titanfall 2  They released the game in the same time period as Call of Duty Infinite Warfare and Battlefield 1. But every DLC and update they have released has been free.  EA makes no sense.

Nither I Am : when a youtube channel is smarter than a company.

Potatro tatro : The last EA game I bought was Mass Effect 3. EA rushed it so the last 20 minutes were complete shit and the dlc practices were disgusting but overall I see it as the last remnant of classic bioware. I don't like shitty sports titles or soulless RPGs so the last 5 years have been wonderfully EA free. FrEA if you will

thegreatcalvinio : *Why are we still here, just to suffer?*

Wavanova : "At least they haven't wrecked Star Wars Battlefront yet." LOL OOPS

Xyphn : [Please purchase the brand new DLC to unlock this comment!]

Rickest Rick : Can we all just acknowledge that CD Projekt Red is the best, most moral developer in the game right now? Throw more $ at them so they can make more awesome games.

Corey Hammond : I haven't fogiven them for destroying Westwood Studios.

Mauro Huenchunao : For what I heard, they finally screw Star Wars Battlefront too

gellendar : "At least they haven't ruined Star Wars Battlefront" Oh the irony...

Audel Acosta : "At least they haven't wrecked Star Wars Battlefront yet" It's been 3 months and already that comment didn't age well

GasPuch62 : R.I.P. Command & Conquer

EJHC Dao : EA & Nexon deserve to die as a company for the crimes of bringing down so many good IP, also this censorship, dlc and microtransactions have to stop and only you as a costumer have the power to stop them, do not buy or play their games, you only keep giving them reasons to continue their scummy practises.

jernej tojersu : "At least they haven't wrecked Star Wars Battlefront yet" BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Dogman _27 : Electronic farts

Colin Cramer : "At least they haven't wrecked star wars battlefront yet"... oh what a difference 4 months makes...

Malcolm M : EA got a big ego and stopped giving a damn about their products. They monopolized NFL games and madden became a joke

Niccolo Cagnolati : 7:50 "At least they haven't ruined Battlefront yet." Oh you poor sweet innocent child, you had no idea of what was to come

AJ K : EA it's in the dlc's

Aislinn O Rourke : If EA is so terrible why do people still buy their games.

David zzstu Neil : 7:51 "At least they didn't ruin star wars battlefront yet."

THE CIRCLE TV : This is soo good! Can do a video on another one of the gaming world's villains, CAPCOM?

Snedden Gonsalves : Won't forgive them for what they did to command and conquer franchise

Steve Edwards : What's up with that quick visual reference to Cities: Skylines when talking about how EA ruined Sim City? There's no connection there; Cities: Skylines is produced by Paradox Interactive.

RobyVan : "At least they didnt wrecked Star Was Battlefront yet" They just did that

Primeval Atom : I love your comment about Battlefield 2 lol - then I check the date of this video and I can see you didn't anticipated the future incredible crash and burn disaster EA find themselves in because of their unending greed...

AirCooledMan2006 : EA shows why unfettered capitalism doesn't work.

Wario's Gold Coin : Trip Hawkins, the original founder of Electronic Arts (EA) was indeed a man far ahead of its time in the video/computer game industry. He is still for me an business inspiring man. He used a well working formula used in the music industry and implemented that formula to the still early growing game industry and made developers/creators recognizable to the masses. Even chanced ideas of games support, got strengthened and then the product made sales thanks to Trip Hawkings idea. Just the history with Sega's Genesis/Mega Drive is near legendary how Hawkins near alone made themselfs a big house on the console with a wide variety of unique titles. And all that possible because of Hawkins being the first in the game industry to reverse enginere the Japanese Mega Drive system before it officaly came to the U.S.A. Later on Accolade made it as well so did Codemasters but he was first. That made EA have a big buisness advantage in the upcoming partnership agreement. EA games as a brand got recognized everywhere and the rest is history so to speak. To bad he had to leave EA. If Hawkins had been around EA might have still been a more appreciated company and still promoting new ideas and IP's.

Grandsome : When EA started publishing Mass Effect, Dead Space, Mirrors Edge, and Dragon Age in the span of a few years it almost looked like they were becoming a creative good company then, but they ran almost all of those new IP to the ground and haven't launched a new big IP since except for Titan Fall. That's quite disappointing. *sigh*

Mephisto Knight : ‘At least they haven’t run Battlefront into the ground’...

kirathekid : They've rekt battlefront :\

R3dstripe91 : EA. Take-Everything.


Charlie Poulter : It went wrong when they rereleased the same FIFA game for the 50th time, only to add more microtransactions to remove standard content, only to add a paywall.

Gabez Polanski : 4:51 can somebody explain me, why tom brady's face turns into a anime character, i've been haunted with that the last 3 hours.

Wyatt Corbin : A least they haven't ruined battlefront. LOL.

Chris Dem : 7:51 "At least they haven't wrecked Star Wars Battlefront yet". Little did he know....

Stuart Mills : I will never forgive EA for what did they to the SimCity franchise
