    Ubisoft needs uplay and EA origin + EA games most have lootboxes or trading cards which you buy for $$$.

    Haven't played a EA or Ubisoft game since like 7 years.

    Their games are, unfortunately, actually some of the most popular on the planet. And that includes even here on the Codex, as the respective Assassins Creed and Battlefield threads illustrate. Plus Ubisoft does Anno*, one of the few remaining civ builders that are actually still strategy games, instead of just clickers, so they get praise there from the Tacticular Cancer folks. And Ubisoft also got a lot of praise here for that recent arcade Western shooter thing, the name of which escapes me, but the first one in the series had a preacher chasing an indian, and you played both alternately.




    * In the same way that Debbie does Dallas

    EA: play Dead Space series
    Ubisoft: play Far Cry series

    Both aren't amazing, and Far Cry in particular is somewhat compromised, yet they're the only singleplayer games of the past decade from these two publishers even slightly worth a damn (in my experience).
    People mentioned Titanfall 2 being worth a shot also but idk if that was just normie/modern gamer talk or people that actually know what a good game is...

    the quality is dead on PC and console. shame because even these two published a lot of golden oldies back in the day, and even when their games weren't that great they were often still pretty cool :negative:

    Battlefield on PC is still gold.

    I am struggling to remember the last time I got interested by an EA or Activision game.

    However, Ubi still is trying in some ways. The AC series is interesting by its settings and its evolution. The Far Cry series actually try some new stuff setting-wise compared to most FPS (I haven't actually played any of these games). I am curious about Beyond Good & Evil 2. I hear the last South Park game isn't half bad. Ubi is the least worse of the big 3.

    Nah Ubi will always be figuratively Hitler for Assassins Creed.

    Hm, maybe they should make an Ass Creed game set in 1938 Berlin.

    I still find myself hoping that some day they decide to make a worthy Clancy game.
