EA wins Worst Company in America reader poll

<< < (2/3) > >>

W8taminute:
I have heard and read reviews online stating that every sports game EA makes is utter rubbish.  Now that EA has forbidden anyone to make football or hockey games they have no incentive to make quality products. 

The only thing EA got right is Battlefield 3.  It seems that they take that genre seriously because of their number one competitor and their Call of Duty franchise.

Whoever told you the NHL series has collapsed should not be trusted, because it has reached the level of outstanding. Defensemen actually play smart D, stick work and cutting off passing lanes has replaced just blindly hip checking everything in sight, positional play and puck handling are king.

I have to agree that NHL 12 is extremely well done, though I do have an issue with the extremely long load times on the PS3.

I used to love the EA NHL series back in the 90's, The first one was NHL'96,I used to put myself into the game and sim a whole season to see what my stats would be.The last NHL game I played was NHL'98 on the PS1 and I thought that one was pure gold. Playing against a mate with line changes was ultra fun.
