First of all, I would sugges capitalising and breaking up your posts, it would make them considerably nicer to read.
If you bothered to read my other posts in this thread, you would see I have already stated why I think DICE are hypocrits.

I wouldn't have cared - I didn't care about MW2, I enjoyed that game, but to tout themselves as saviours of PC gaming and then do exactly what they had a go at others for doing... that annoys me.
Also, as I say, I havn't really enjoyed any of their games. Not saying they are bad, but not my thing - I won't say that doesn't also affect my opinion.
When I said they make poor games I meant that I, personally, do not like them that much. I did clarify that. I'm not saying they are necesarily bad games, but they never gripped me.
The idea that just because I have never produced an AAA game means I can't comment on them is a logical fallacy, so I won't justify that one with a response.
As to developers I approve of? Valve, Bioware, Harmonix, and a number of others. Why, because I enjoy their games, and find their business strategies fair and reasonable.

It's a discussion forum. The aim of discussion is to try and understand people's opinions and come to an agreement, or at least find out new things and change your perspective a little, and there is nothing wrong with a bit of discussion.Edited by lattyware - 4/22/11 at 7:14am
