After renting and completing Dead Space something occured to me. EA made this game. To be more specific, EA Redwood Shores made this game. Not some random developer they bought out. Dead Space is actually good. People may bitch about it's linearality but it's be hard to get a scary atmosphere if you could just turn and flee in any old direction. The whole "Strategic Dismemberment" was so satisfying. I Loved blasting off Limbs. But anyway this isn't a review.
EA have had a somewhat disreputable stance in the video game industry. Accused of re-hashing and making bad quality games by many people. This has come to known as one of gamings many truths. But recently, it seems, EA have actually decided to start making games that aren't just random sequels or ripoffs. (see SSX, NFS, The Sims, every EA sports game)
But after Playing Dead Space i realised that EA still make mass loads of utter shite. But Yes they've made a good game. I'm hoping this trend will continue with the forthcoming release, Mirror's Edge. Although this is being developed by DICE which are a wholly owned subsidary of EA.
They've had a few shaky starts with this new leaf, such as Army of Two, Skate and the new Facebreaker But they've also made a few good ones such as Skate, Red Alert 3, and now of course Dead Space
John Ricctiello, EA's Chief Exectutive, has stated that the lack of innovation in the industry, which EA had a large hand in, has caused EA as a whole to look at creating new IP's. Well i say good on ya EA. It's good to see now that Activendi is bigger than you, you've decided that making good games accompanied to making a whole load of crap is a better way to make money than just making a whole load of crap.
