Activision, only for Blizzard though.

Ask this five years ago and the results would be the opposite.
Ask this five years from now and there's a good chance they'll be flipped around again.

Activision has Blizzard.

#5 Posted by Crono11 (1645 posts) -

I'd pick EA. They have been putting out good games and with the EA Partners program you'd be able to play a bunch more games by different people.

EA, no question really. As much as I would like to play Diablo III, its just one game. EA however publishes a lot of good games that I like a lot. They are also publishing Insomniac's upcoming multiplatform game, so its really no question.

EA. EA Partners is great. Love DICE and the Battlefield franchise is my favorite. Bioware make my favorite singleplayer RPGs. If I play a sports game, it's an EA sports game. Fond memories of Fifa Soccer. And so forth. 
 
Pricey, because Blizzard is a close second to DICE, but hell, shooters just have the best moment to moment gameplay and Battlefield has biggest moments of all.

#9 Posted by Yummylee (21545 posts) -

EA easily. Blizzard is long gone for me since I don't play on my PC, plus EA has got a more varied gaming outlet I think. Plus EA publishes BioWare's games..so..yeah.

Damn. I forgot about Bioware. :[

#11 Posted by jkz (4010 posts) -

EA for greater variety and EAP / Bioware.

Dude - Valve's an EA partner I think...
#15 Posted by MattyFTM (14370 posts) -

EA has a more diverse range of developers, plus the partners program, so I guess I'll go with them.

#16 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

EA without a doubt. 
There's a little more variety in their games than says Blizzard have.  
Diablo 3 is gonna be a better looking Diablo, Starcraft 2 feels like Starcraft, only better looking-ish.  
And WoW is gonna be wow..  
 
So yeah, EA

#17 Posted by Picard (255 posts) -

That was tough.  I think I'll have to go with Blizz though.

yea the multiplayer alone from some of those franchises is worth the time of 10 ea catalogs...
#19 Posted by President_Barackbar (3455 posts) -
@Seppli:  EA is Valve's boxed game publisher and distributor.
#20 Posted by Zidd (1841 posts) -

EA is making better decisions about what they publish as opposed to activision who only publishes something they can run into the ground.

#21 Posted by Binman88 (3686 posts) -

EA publishes a lot more creative games than Activision do.

#22 Posted by Jimbo (9804 posts) -

EA, easily, for all of their EA Partners stuff.  Blizz are great n all but they haven't actually released a new game for 6 years.

#23 Posted by Icemael (6317 posts) -

EA. I don't care about Starcraft, Warcraft, Call of Duty or rhythm games, and EA has Battlefield, Dead Space, Mirror's Edge, Burnout and Need for Speed.

#24 Posted by Venatio (4491 posts) -

EA because they make less crap at the moment

#25 Posted by wwfundertaker (1400 posts) -

EA as it has a different variety of games.

#26 Posted by davidwitten22 (1708 posts) -

I HATE EA because of what they did to me with Battlefield 2142 (my fault for buying a PC game though), but I don't play computer games so the obvious answer is EA.

#27 Posted by JoelTGM (5596 posts) -

EA has some really good stuff.  
 
Activision gives you Tony Hawk Ride and yearly Call of Duty games.  I know they have Blizzard, but I'm not into RTS games.

#28 Posted by Mr_Skeleton (5144 posts) -

EA. I was about to buy the Call of Duty pack on Steam and than I remmbered I hate Activision so I didnt. 
So basically I would stick with EA (plus EA owns Bioware).

#29 Posted by Kahoona (223 posts) -

EA has DICE, Bioware, Visceral, Blackbox, Epic, Criterion, Respawn, and Valve.  Activision has Blizzard and Bungie....not a hard choice really. EA

#30 Posted by ZeroRegistry (75 posts) -

While I do enjoy most of what Blizzard creates, they don't do it often enough to justify playing Activision games exclusively.    
 
@Kahoona:
I believe EA only publishes the physical copies of  whatever Valve creates, so I wouldn't really count them as a creative studio they own/partner with.  Just me though  

#31 Posted by Meteora (5787 posts) -

EA. They've definitely reshaped their image for the better. Of course, having Activision being a super huge douchebag also helps.

#32 Posted by Kahoona (223 posts) -
@ZeroRegistry:  Valve is part of the EA partners program just so EA publishes their boxed copies so if I had to play EA or Activision games only, I'd consider Valve an EA product...at least on consoles.
#33 Posted by Bigandtasty (3202 posts) -

As much as I loved Blizzard, I'm skeptical about StarCraft II, and I'm sold on Mass Effect 3 and Dragon Age 2. I have to go with EA.

#34 Posted by iAmJohn (6117 posts) -

EA, because Activision is awful and I don't care about Blizzard games.

#35 Posted by cap123 (2477 posts) -

EA for Fifa

#36 Posted by AhmadMetallic (18955 posts) -

EA have the bigger and more varied collection of games, which means EA = more fun, so i pick EA

#37 Posted by bhhawks78 (1203 posts) -

Bioware and deadspace are the only games either pub makes that I do more than gamefly and play for 2-3 hours.

#38 Posted by LeetBalla (698 posts) -

EA all the way. Diablo and Starcraft are great, but if I couldn't play Battlefield or Bioware games, that would be awful. 

#39 Posted by Interfect (979 posts) -

EA. So I can "Challenge Everything".

#40 Posted by EpicSteve (6483 posts) -

EA for diversity, Rockband and Bioware.

#41 Edited by DystopiaX (5301 posts) -

Continual Starcraft/Diablo games, with a few Activision games to keep me happy between releases, could last me the rest of my life.

#42 Posted by Azteck (7449 posts) -

EA. As much as I hate them, they put out a lot more games that are interesting to me than Activision.

#43 Posted by ch13696 (4582 posts) -

That's a tough one. Activision does have some games that run very good stories (i.e Prototype and a couple of Call of Duties). Though I'm not going to bash on the company because of Bobby Kotick. I'll just bash on him. Although so far EA has been dishing out some good Battlefield games lately and they're still supporting their online PC games with updates. Other companies, once their games have been out there for almost a year, then there's no more support. The EA Partners program I'm a lil iffy on. They say it will help newer developers, but I get the feeling something will go wrong. Maybe I'm wrong. We'll see in the future.

#44 Edited by Dauragon (554 posts) -

I would read a book. 
 
Edit: that sounded weird.  What I really mean is if you were to limit my choice in videogame consumption to just one publisher, I'd probably just start focusing on another hobby. Wasn't a knock against either one.

#45 Posted by TheCreamFilling (1225 posts) -

EA all the way. I play more of their games in the first place. 

#46 Posted by Osaladin (2515 posts) -

Bioware son.

#47 Posted by 234r2we232 (3181 posts) -

I hate EA.
 
But EA has Rock Band :(

#48 Posted by jakob187 (21665 posts) -

EA, because I'd probably just play Road Rash II for the rest of eternity.

#49 Posted by SlasherMan (1725 posts) -

EA.

#50 Posted by bjorno (1415 posts) -

ea published shaq fu, so i think it is obvious.
