On the subject of the Peter Moore interview. I think he misunderstands why people hate EA. For the most part he's wrong. Gamers don't want to go back to the days before DLC and everything is on the disk. That's wrong. People like DLC. I like DLC. I think it's a great idea, but what's wrong with his argument is that people don't like being nickle and dimed. They don't like walls in their way that stop them from getting a full experience.

When I think of EA's practices, I almost always think of Valve and how they're pretty much on the opposite ends of the spectrum. Whereas EA makes tons of money by forcing people to give them money, Valve has the magical ability to make gamers willingly reach into their wallets and empty them into Gabe Newell's pool of money by getting customers through fierce loyalty. They are willing to put their games up for extreme discounts and in some cases, even giving them away. Through those business practices, people are willing to give Valve their money at the mention of the word "Hat" and even buy a hundred dollar cosmetic item in a war based hat-simulator.

FIRST

Was it that long? Also this is the 2nd reset of the forum so it's the 3rd forum now.

Remember when I closed the very first one with the fake NSider ending page? Good times.

Also, it turns out googling 'what you're searching for' site:falcon6.net works better for searching the old forum
