I don't recall anyone saying they forgave EA? Good Gesture =/= Forgiveness.

Yup, thats is correct. As long you install / register it on Origin account before March 28th, then you can access your free game download. ALSO need to download your free game before March 30th or else the offer will not stand.
But the game will stay in my library after i download... right?

Doesn't make up for all the bad, but it does show goodwill. EA is usually just greedy, SimCity was actually a failure, as in the game was unplayable for like a week. This shows they know that was unacceptable.

EA aren't giving people any money back and they aren't giving physical copies of anything.. so they look good and make people happy without losing any dollars. Im not complaining about a free game, but this gesture doesn't make me think ANY better of EA. I had never felt such ill will towards a company ever, and that was before simcity (which i am glad i got as a gift..), now i cant think of anything they could do to make me want to give them my money ever again.

I think he actually correctly interpreted forgiveness for business...

The game has been playable since the day I bought it (the 8th), sure there are some bugs, but I have not experienced the login issues.. So they are essentially giving me something I didn't even beg for.

Yup, thats is correct. As long you install / register it on Origin account before MARCH 25th, then you can access your free game download. ALSO need to download your free game before March 30th or else the offer will not stand.

I'd like to think so.

FREE PC DIGITAL DOWNLOAD GAMES NOT DOWNLOADED FROM ORIGIN.COM BY MARCH 30, 2013 AT 11:59PM PST ARE FORFEIT

As long as you'd have selected your free game and commenced the download, then it should be good. It refers to people not downloading their free game before that date and missing the cut of point to do so. Also, see my correction, its the 25th, not 28th as I previously stated. Apologies.

Still don't find this as a solution...Only reason is....None of those games interest me...I already have BF3 and Medal of Honor...No thanks on NFS....

Would have been nice to see EA/Maxis actually say ahead of time what games they would be offering up...
