The only thing Notch is right about is that EA games are not technically indie. There wasn't any need to be overdramatic and state they are killing the industry...lol
Who cares if EA does this.
ZOMG! EA released an "indi game bundle" and are competing with other indie developers that aren't EA affiliated. Because of this, I hate EA!!! /sarcasm
Seriously guys. I don't like EA for many reasons but settle down. Who cares about this. Before you get your panties in a bunch because "EA thinks they are an indie developer and they don't even know what an indie game is by definition." According to Wikipedia, there is no definition!!!
Wiki: "There is no exact widely-accepted definition of what constitutes an "indie game". However, generally indie games share certain commonalities. Indie games are developed by individuals, small teams, or small independent companies."
So basically EA doesn't make the games. "Small teams, or small independent companies" make the games and EA sells them. Boo hoo. Come on guys, settle down.
What EA does is heavily exploit there financial power to push out crappier games every year to please the increasingly mainstream gaming community. If anything, blame everyone who pays full price on Call of Duty every year.Edited by ezikiel12 - 5/6/12 at 2:09am
