I know, right? And if someone does come up with games that actually sound unique and fun, like, oh I don't know, Star Wars Ocean's Eleven (Ragtag) written by Amy Hennig herself, not only does EA divert its resources to recycled garbage like Battlefield Hardline, they shut down the entire studio that was working on it! What's with all the apparent hatred for single-player games from EA? (I haven't played or really looked at Titanfall 2, so I don't know if that counts.)
I heard about this, but this video informed me about some new stuff I hadn't heard about before.
I was planning on buying the game as soon as I've got my gaming PC up and running, but screw EA's money grubbing tendencies, I'm waiting until Christmas to pick up this game.
Or you could "stay woke," as the kids say these days, and just not buy the game AT ALL. I did the same with the first new Battlefront, even after being impressed by the demo's graphics; and I haven't regretted it once. The beauty of the Capitalist system is that you can make a difference with how and where you spend your money. You just need to make informed decisions, and the information I have gathered tells me that EA doesn't need a penny from me. Don't wait for a sale, don't rent it from a store, just spend your time and money on a game from a company you want to support. Or invest it for the future, so you can afford to buy better games' collector's editions later on, if you so desire. Up to you. I need to take a few deep breaths.
