Sigh, EA will always buy out the gaming industry. Sigh, this is nothing new...

PopCap is toast. The only thing EA does well is alienate customers and stifle creativity.

I'm not saying that Pop Cap's games will suck now, but I think there's a much larger chance of it happening if gamers don't bitch about their desire to not see that happen.

How many times have we seen smaller, creative studios eaten up by the mega publishers with promises of "it'll only make our games better," only to see their creativity and innovation completely buried?

I mean we're talking EA here.  PopCap ceased to exist as one of those smaller, creative studios effective today.

Yeah, EA's track record when it goes to bringing smaller studios into the "family" isn't great. I guess all the major publishers have torpedoed a few darlings but EA? First they lure them in, then they set them up, then start to dictate what they think should be important, then they close them when the sales slump.
