    That should at least reduce the shovel ware a bit.
    But couldn't care less actually, only things I want from EA is Bad Company and Fifa.

    EA is doing a good job of cutting back on the shovelware.

    I'd prefer it if this was Activision cutting games, for every one Call of Duty title there are fifty odd "Fun4All" titles.

    Indeed, I hope they can keep this up. Dead Space and Mirror's Edge didn't sell as well as they hoped, but on the long term making better games should make them more money.

    So much for a Mirror's Edge 2. The first one was pretty boring and repetitive. Also frustrating.

    I hope they're still willing to publish "risky" games like Mirror's Edge (the initial idea was really good, at least in theory) and Dead Space.

    I found Dead Space to be brilliant. It'd be a shame to not have a sequel of that.

    Maybe it's because I'm a Nintendo gamer but I don't quite have many memorable EA titles outside of the Gamecube Bond titles. 007 Nightfire is one of my favorite games of all time, honestly.

    Well, odds are they'll still pump out their long living franchises like EA Sports games (and since I loved FIFA '10 I say that's good), but otherwise there's not much I can think of that's a big loss.

    EA really needs to bring back the Strike series, Iraq strike anyone. Another bad Company game would work as well.

    They have tried to bring back the Strike series as well as the Road Rash series but they never went past beta stage which kinda sets them apart from other publishers out there.

    They also had The Dark Knight license, paid a lot for it and in the end scrapped it as it didn't meet their standards. Most companies would have just released any old crap to make back the money.

    I'm hoping the next Syndicate game works out and is a part of their line up next year.

    But EA bought them, so they hold the rights.

    there was a time when EA was really loved (like burnout games) so i guess they dont wanna spoil the long time career esp since nowadays most original ideas have been taken (or thought of) and keeping aloof from repititive or boring titles is necessary
