10 Things That Prove EA Have Completely Lost Their Way

Is Battlefront 2's microtransaction controversy a step too far, or simply the norm?

It's certainly no secret that EA isn't the most popular game publisher out there.

Although the days of being voted as the worst company in America feel long behind us, many would argue that EA have actually managed to get worse.

Nowhere is this more apparent than in their recent treatment of games like Mass Effect: Andromeda and Star Wars Battlefront 2. Both titles have had most of their enjoyment and value for money undermined by shady business practices and a general lack of care, both of which are becoming features all too common with EA as a publisher.

It's definitely true that the company have been making strides to get rid of their negative reputation, but most of these moves are simply reversing previous bad decisions that should never have been green-lit in the first place. If EA really want to win back the trust of their consumers, they need to start listening and making changes for the better.

From burdening games with microtransactions to outright murdering talented studios, it's quite easy to see that EA have completely lost their way.
