Well the title really says it all. For the full story follow this link.
[quote author=“An excerpt from the story:”]Expectedly, several paragraphs from the “Criticism” section had been removed. All references to the notorious EA-Spouse and other stories about EA’s overworked and undercompensated employees have been omitted. A paragraph about the class action lawsuit filed by disgruntled EA employees was edited to say that EA has “led the industry in reforming work/life balance issues that are endemic to the software industry” and that ” Since that time, many other game companies have been struck with similar lawsuits.”
Honestly up until this point I had thought EA was only slightly more underhanded than most companies out there, but puts them right on my #### list, where every other more sane person has had them for the past I-don’t-know-how-many years.
I’m still torn about Spore, though. I don’t want money going to EA, but I do want money going to Will Write. Though I think EA’s evil outweighs Will’s good so I’m afraid I’m with Hawkes on this one. I’m sad now. :(
