People love to hate on Johnny R., but do you remember how fucking abysmal EA was before he came on board? Cause I sure as hell do.
He gave us Dead Space, Dragon Age, Mass Effect and BF Bad Company 2. I, for one, will miss you John.
Mass Effect wasn't made by EA, it wasn't even funded by them.
But 2+3 were. When I say ME or DA, I mean the whole franchise.
And then they were kind of responsible for knocking the wind out of DA2 with the dev cycle given.
I mean I still really liked it, but it was not the product it should have been.
So I guess by @enigma777 logic, James Washington Carver invented the peanut butter, right.
DA was in development since 2004. You wanna credit him with the garbage that is DA2, go ahead.
Dead Space was probably already underway in some form or the other when he came in. Now Mass Effect was pretty much the reason they bought Bioware so they could franchise Mass Effect, so sorry no credit here.
Now how in hell are you gonna give him the BF3 credit?! Again a game in a long standing franchise. BF3 would have been made even if Daffy Duck would have the CEO.
Now, I'm not gonna be all hating on him because I actually liked what he did with EA's Partners program, even though that kinda backfired, but don't give him credit when he shouldn't get it.
What do you mean "franchise" Mass Effect? It was always conceived as being a trilogy last I checked...
