Stop EA Now

    1. Petition by

      Oliver Thunderbarren

      Kendal, Uganda

For copiously nickel and diming customers with day-one DLC, online passes, forced intrusive DRM and all around spiteful business practices, EA was named Worst Company in America through a poll on The Consumerist.

Now, EA sees that it is threatened by these people who correctly portray a poor public image of the company. Instead of legitimately addressing the complaints, EA staff first responded with childish indignant comments, then saw that they needed a scapegoat.

EA is pushing all over the web that they are the 'heroic campaigner' for LGBT rights in video games, that their poor public image and attacks from gamers are because of their choice to include LGBT characters in their games. With the vast majority of EA critics, this is simply not the case.

Note how other games with homosexual options, like Fable 3 or Fallout: New Vegas never recieved any flak for including them. The reason for this is clear. 'Homophobic attacks' on EA are entirely contrived.

Not only are they perpetuating lies and misrepresentation, EA has also set up their own petition with bots signing it in order to lobby support for the claim that they are a 'champion of LGBT rights'

We seek to make it known that EA is hated for its business practices, NOT pro-LGBT features in games.

 

RIP Bioware, Maxis, Westwood, Bullfrog.

      Because nickle and dimming us isn't right,

      unethical, and makes things harder in this

      economy. Further more DRM is not constitutional.

      For the $60.00 I churned out for Madden06, 07, 08, and 09 expecting those games to compare to 05 a game released on a lesser system... For turning bioware to the darkside, for turning the Knights of the Old Republic series into a f'ing MMO b/c they wanted to use it's popularity to roll in the dough, for Dragon Age, for for the developer dude that worked on NCAA, that laughed at gamers like myself, who complained about the product. DRM, DLC, for tha Crack Babies lol, for Mass Effect (Can't even get the best ending b/c I don't really do the multiplayer thing), for Pandemic, for attempting to stop freedom of speech and using hatred some people have towards the gay community to sleaze your way outta trouble.. Don't stop at EA people, the industry as a whole is as much to blame for DLC... I haven't spent one cent on a Microsoft point and I don't intend to ever buy any, in fact, I don't plan on buying next-gen since i feel so ripped off this gen, my son will just have to understand. Just save that money, and upgrade your pc... I bought consoles to avoid patches and DLC

      Im tired of your underhanded business practices. I have 5 games for my PC, 4 of them bioware games. Dragon age orgins, dragon age 2 and mass effect 1+2. thats a

      pretty sweet selection there. But guess what, i need origin to play these games. There is no way i will allow origin on my machine thanks to it constanty scanning my PC and rummaging through every orifice of my system. You have no right to look at everything on my HD and peer into my personal like. Its a violation of privacy, not to "provide your customers with a better service"

      I HATE any program that gets in the way between me and my games, yes that includes steam!

      whats worse is i purchased all these games before origin crawled out if its hole. Sure i needed the EA download manager but i wasnt stalked constantly.

      So thanks EA for making my entire PC libary completely worthless, thanks for ruining great devolpers and franchises, thanks for inventing the online pass fetish that everyone cant get enough of, and most of all, thanks for treating your customers that buy your games, keep you in business, like utter S***! Banning us if we are dis-satisfied and voice our concens and dis-pleasure.

      Its only a matter of time before the gaming comunity wakes up and boycotts all your products.

      You dont deserve our money!!!
