FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Free EA Game as Apology for SimCity

Looks like EA is doing damage control big time, offering a free EA title to anyone who has activated SimCity by March 18th. The article says any game in the EA portfolio, so it is the assumption that this includes brand new games like Crysis 3.

I personally was holding off (and am glad) on SimCity, but I'm tempted to grab a copy in order to get Crysis 3 for free now, a game that I was more interested in buying in the first place.

Those of you who have bought and been frustrated with it already, is this enough? I think that this is quite generous especially coming from a company that everyone complains is only in it to make money.

Of course, the real way to please owners of SimCity would be to simply turn off the DRM that is causing all the problems, but they don't seem interested in doing that any time soon.
