    If you want, creative independence, then don’t merge with a mega corporation.

      The original was released by EA over 20 years ago. It’s not like its something they bought up.

      You said this so much more diplomatically than I was going to.

      EA was hardly a mega corp when they published the first game though. Where is Taylor Swift when you need her?

          This prompted me to look into their history, and yeah, looks like they were basically a super-group formed out of employees from names like Apple and Atari and were big right out of the gate.

            I was mainly just thinking how EA Sports games have been a thing for as long as I can remember. Even when video games was a small industry, they were still a big fish.

        The EA has been a gaming mega corp for at least 30 years.
