10 Video Game Franchises EA Killed (That Would Make Millions)

EA haven’t had the best track record over the last few years. Since Anthem doesn’t look like it’s going to break the bank as much as they’d want it to, we suggest reviving some wrongfully killed off franchises to get EA back in the green.

    I read what section of that Battlefield article was in frame during the video, and dude just totally took that quote out of context

  2. edrrrk on April 8, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Thank god Valve never got bought by them. They were so close to getting owned by EA, because thier awesome game franchises would have died and got ruined quickly.

  3. PanosPlays on April 8, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    So are you saying EA is run by a bunch of potatoes?!

  4. Yaman on April 8, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    when will sony or rockstar buy ea?

  5. DS M on April 8, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    i just hope EA NEVER lays a Finger on monster hunter

  6. Marvellous STD Tech on April 8, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    Command and conquer and sim city😢

  7. Quintin Nowak-Wolff on April 8, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    I loved fight night round 4

  8. dan wheeler on April 8, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    Watching YouTube is almost as depressing as the news these days.

  9. LightAndDarkKlumpi on April 8, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    i want a good c&c so hard… (a new one) even tho im pretty jung i still wanna cuz i played the older games in 2018 and they were still amazing

  10. Jnw boss on April 8, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    EA has ALOT of problems . They tend to buy these studios make a game in their own image they act surprised when their ruined version of the game doesn’t make money instantly and just drops is dead. So RIP SSX NFL Street any of these games here and any company that was under EA

  11. Demon Returns on April 8, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    I disagree
    boxing games don’t need annual yearly releases…… a release very 2-3 years will be fine

  12. Elemental Core on April 8, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    Case in point: never trust EA to 1) not make key game elements locked behind paywalls, 2) listen to the market they _try_ to appeal to, and 3) make a new addition to a series that doesn’t cause them to drop the series as a whole when one issue pops up. Also, a terrific example of their terrible craftsmanship is Anthem. I had high hopes, and they were smashed by faulty servers, paywalls, and a lack of a cohesive and well-thought-out story.

    My heart still weeps for dead space.

  15. lord of the lizards 1 on April 8, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    you should have put pvz 3 on the list 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 that game is ****

  16. Staycalm2010 on April 8, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    EA is a predator of a publisher. It sees competition as a drain on their potential profit. So instead of competing, they buy the studios up and kill them off so they do not have to compete. If the Visceral, bulfrogs etc where left independent then the gaming eco system would be a much richer place. But instead they are a plague, consuming all resources until nothing is left.

  17. AaronTheBarbaric on April 8, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    I am playing Anthem right now.

    All I can say is if they don’t fix the game soon. I will be looking at the publishing companies from now on.


    This is the company that hypes up every game they have and ruins the experience for every game they produce. THey are a micro transaction company that hypes up everything they produce. Then when you play their game everything is through a p2w pay wall and the game consistently crashes regardless of their "fixes".

  18. Zodiac909 on April 8, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Nothing warms my heart more than hearing someone talk trash about EA. <3

  19. Pythonpro freak on April 8, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Click Medium Tank.. "Please pay $0.99" to build.

  20. SchutzStaffel on April 8, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    It’s sad that no one talks about CRYSIS, TITANFALL

  21. metalbowser23 on April 8, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    SSX tricky was a great game

  22. FUBAR FUBAR on April 8, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Dead space 3 was the best of all 3 ,
    No bugs, glitches, excellent port.
    Hell i played it on gt 210 in high settings 720p with ssao on,
    It’s EA tht is to blame

  23. Come On Fhqwhgads on April 8, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    Anno, The Settler, Age of Empires, & the real thing, not the shitty mobile ones that completely changed the gameplay & bogged them down with forced multiplayer & microtransactions.

    Actuyally, now that I think about it, these might be Ubisoft games.

  24. Blue crumb Carrier on April 8, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    I never gave a cent to EA and never will

  25. Jacopo Abbruscato on April 8, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    Lest we forget, M A S S E F F E C T was sacrificed to reroute staff and resources resources to Anthem, which turned out a failure, a dead game mere weeks after release.

  26. GeNaCiDe122112 on April 8, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Crys when i see Deadspace . It waz my Favorite one an two but Deadspace 3 is trash first one waz the best EA List =Bioware YOUR NEXT .

  27. Matt1029 on April 8, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    They purposefully sent out titanfall 2 to fail during the weeks where infinate warfare and battlefield 1 was released

  28. Panchunath Adhikary on April 9, 2021 at 12:01 am

    into the game!

    Once this line was the assurance of perfect gameplay experience. Look at it now!

  29. Jamie Crabb on April 9, 2021 at 12:01 am

    Nfs rivals is the fucking best nfs game

  30. Rob TZ on April 9, 2021 at 12:04 am

    Where’s the sims series?

  31. Kyle Smith on April 9, 2021 at 12:05 am

    id love these franchises to come back but chances are if they do come back under EA they will find some way to ruin them the only real hope for these franchises is for the rights to be bought by a different company

  32. gravethebeyond on April 9, 2021 at 12:09 am

    I want my dead space back.

  33. HaseoXV on April 9, 2021 at 12:10 am

  34. Fasi Syed on April 9, 2021 at 12:12 am

  35. Nawaf - alharbi on April 9, 2021 at 12:14 am

    Bruh you forgot titanfall 2

  36. Squeguin Quack on April 9, 2021 at 12:15 am

    Dead Space 2 was such an amazing game, it makes me sad that Dead Space 3 sucked and it killed Dead Space

  37. Lee McDonald on April 9, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Here’s one that we all forgot.

    MVP Baseball.

    (I still miss the "Read the Pitch" feature in the 2005 version.)

  38. THIS PENCER on April 9, 2021 at 12:17 am

    RIP Pvz

  39. AkiraTheGodEater on April 9, 2021 at 12:17 am

    I love Deadspace so much. They need to give up those IPs

  40. mean machine on April 9, 2021 at 12:18 am

    Dead space is the only games which challenge uncharted in action and challenge last of us in story and horror

  41. William Nelson on April 9, 2021 at 12:20 am

    Fucking love the first ssx

  42. Dylan Ingo on April 9, 2021 at 12:20 am

    I can’t tell you how bad I want a new real dead space game

  43. 32.Shafira Nurin Qolbi on April 9, 2021 at 12:20 am

    Now they’re killing the sims 🙂
    Oh wait,i think the sims is already dead,am i right? :")

  44. Dexter jettster on April 9, 2021 at 12:20 am

    They redeemed battlefront 2, but then killed it

  45. gravethebeyond on April 9, 2021 at 12:20 am

    EA. the badguys of videogames. and they owned it. or in there words: disagree with being the bad guys

  46. Max Hunker on April 9, 2021 at 12:24 am

    What about Rugby? Rugby 08 was insanely fun on PS2 and I guarantee a current gen Rugby game would sell like mad.

  48. maniacal gamerz on April 9, 2021 at 12:29 am

    I’m pretty curious about the soundtrack in the background if anybody has some details. Also Cannot disagree with the fact ea has damaged so many franchises. Thankfully theme hospital had a sort of successor come out recently and there is still a fan made cnc online game.

  49. Kerject Roter on April 9, 2021 at 12:29 am

    What’s next on the list EA the sims franchises ?

  50. Netherwolf6100 on April 9, 2021 at 12:30 am

    EA, Konami, and Capcom make me worry.
