quote:

EA's chief creative officer Richard Hilleman thinks the publisher's games might still be too hard for potential new players. He said as much during an on-stage interview during the DICE Summit in Las Vegas.

"Our games are actually still too hard to learn," Hilleman said, as reported by Gamespot. "The average player probably spends two hours to learn how to play the most basic game. And asking for two hours of somebody's time--most of our customers, between their normal family lives...to find two contiguous hours to concentrate on learning how to play a video game is a big ask."

i for one agree with richard

what do you find hard about EA games?

like for me in simpsons: tapped out

how the gently caress do you know where to put the buildings!!!!!

i dont know how to do that poo poo and im not spending more than a few seconds on a game i paid for before i give up and go jack off

i think call of duty has too many controls, like you have one stick to move and one stick to look around what the f*ck

I imagine the intent of his statement is that there is a lot of bs you need to read before you start a game of COD because they've been making the same game for a decade and now there are like 5000 menus you need to page through so you can equip a new gun or whatever.

Dear Dick Hill Man,

Please continue to dumb down your lovely corridor shooters until they're vegetative, so we can pull the plug, tia

MW3's weapon selection menu is probably one of the worst things in the entire series

Well when there are leveling systems or whatever that gate a ton of the actually useful weapons and abilities it can be pretty lame to be a new player.

I'd legit play a mode that was your team trying to get through a place that other people can fortify, like Counter-Agent in Perfect Dark but less janky and suicide pill filled.

I should have said I have fun with it, because I know it's not very good. But I like hispeed, frigate, and oceanfloor in ut99 a lot.

so with that being the case it wasn't even be possible for a good company to make a hallway fps, so i don't think activision could do it.

I said come in!
