    I know were not allowed to post ebay links, but this is just a great satire on the continued franchise of EASports.

    :rotfl: I really liked the picture of the guy about three quaters of the way down who appeared of dislocated both shoulders.... very funny indeed!

    EA once tried to buy Eve-Online, the Eve-Online owner/creator sent a fax back to EA and then published it on the Eve forums. It was less than friendly and here is an extract from him (Oveur) to EA directors

    EVE-Online is not for sale to ar&eholes


    What a line, we loved it!

    Command & Conquer ... great game, then EA bought it (Westwood) and then it sucked
    Earth and Beyond ... great game then EA bought it (Westwood) and then it sucked

    Anyone got any other examples?

    I stopped buying FIFA football after 98, as I couldn't see any point in giving them any more money for it.

    They can produce some great games to, just hope MOH doesn't over franchise.

    EA Nascar Thunder. 2003, 2004 for xbox.

    I wanted to try Nascar game since i had never played it. Got 2003 and kinda liked it, then got 2004 and it was WORSE than 2003 graphicaly. :rolleyes:

    What the hell is the point to release the same game year after year without adding anything to it? :confused:


    Also feel westwood made a mistake in selling themselves to EA. After they did, westwood went bankrupt and EA destroyed the C&C series. Nothings come out since generals. :mad:
