    The only one I sorta care about is Battlefield 2: MC although I mainly play BFBC2 now so whatever. Still, this sucks nonetheless.

    I've been eyeing Skate for a long, long time now. Is the game any good?

    Probably the best Skating game there is. Heck, I'm not even a big skating game fan, but I love Skate.

    Skate is great, but I find it's sequels are superior.

    i like skate 2 but i hate the camera perspective. the game really feels like a skate sim, and for that it is great. but if you want that fun arcade feel you might be better off with a tony hawk title.

    Why is the only list posted the one for games relevant to 360 owners? Shouldn't the entire list be posted?

    Or is that the entire list? I have to ask, as the context granted by the article implies that there are more.

    Army of Two raised an eyebrow- many of the fans of that title I met seem to be as rabid as most other shooting game fans.

    SKATE would have me say something but the sequels do have a considerably better multiplayer (or indeed having it a fairly core component of the game in the case of the third).

    NFS most wanted I guess I can see as well but I just wanted to note it. I am surprised BF2 made it this far though.

    Also with those sports game going offline I wonder how that works into the project ten dollar or whatever nastiness they are cooking up. I know it would never happen but it could speak volumes about their annual franchise entries rather than kicking things to DLC (given how much money they presumably rake in with music game DLC....)

    Granted I do not care for online games but I like to keep an eye on this, I wonder what it would cost to keep these low volume games running in some capacity as another service on a virtual server. Thanks for the news Fudge.

    I was quite surprised at some of these games being taken down. I only ever notice EA taking down servers is it a scheme for people to buy sequels to play online or something?

    Shut down NFS MW? FUCK YOU, EA, FUCK YOU.

    I hardly got any online time in that game. Got all achievements on the 360 though I think.
