Back to Today's Deal

EA is my favorite video game company.

No…no it’s not . It seems that after butchering their Firemonkeys studio in Australia they are in for more , laying off 350 people this time.

I wouldnt be surprised that;s because of how poorly Anthem is doing and well… how can it do good? It’s trash .

So if you know anyone who bought Anthem or maybe if you bought it yourself.,give yourself a good smack , huh ?


#2

Sarcasm really doesn’t show up very well when written into the thread title like that.

I will keep on supporting the slowly decaying monopoly in Steam.


#3

But…but…but…

Apex Legends is awesome? :stuck_out_tongue:


#4

hint, you can add emoji to OP titles, to help get “poins” across instead of accidental bait :wink:

also

can’t remember when i got my last EA game, my approach seem like hasn’t failed me in a while :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#5

maybe EA specifically had no hands in that ?
:smirk:


#6

somebody add /s to the title pls


#7

Phew, I can keep on playing guilt free.


#8

I’m pretty sure they had almost 0 stuff to do with it. Though i havent played the game so i cannot know how horrible/not horrible microtransactions are in that game.


#9

Your suggestions about sarcasm then?


#10

Some people use the reverse question (irony) mark or the exclamation mark in brackets before or after the sarcastic/ironic comment:

⸮ EA is my favorite video game company

or

EA is my favorite video game comapany (!)


#11

I’ve never seen (!) to denote sarcasm before and I for one would not have read it as such. I have seen /s though and your upside down ? doesn’t even show up here.

Mine does though ¿ ?


#12

I usually make it an over the top/absurd statement.


#13

I’d say the topic qualifies then.
I do tend to wards that myself, but I almost always find someone comes along and takes you seriously no matter how outrageously absurd you make it.


#14

Yup. As someone who I don’t remember the name of who’s art was destroyed once said: “you can make something idiot-proof and the universe will invent a better idiot.”


#15

Not horrible.


#16

I would consider “EA is my favorite” to be over the top/absurd.


#17

I suggest the title becomes:

I told the Chrono community EA was my favorite studio and you won’t believe what they said.

Clicks from all over the web.

#19

Pretty much nothing :smiley: 3/4 of replies were about my poor implementation of sarcasm in thread.


#20

I think quotation marks are what used
"EA is my favourite video game company"

I thought that statement on the thread was kind of strange tho lool
I used to like EA back in PS2 days.
