Last few Need for Speeds have been awful. Hopefully they can reinvigorate the franchise, but I'm not confident.

If Popcap are giving us a new PvZGW can we not go with the "hub" world design and actually support the game, you know know like you did with PvZGW1. Free content, good technical support and on going different character designs.

There was so much room in GW2 and none of the potential was met.

New Need For Speed?! They STILL haven't fixed the last three! I'm still waiting for a patch to nerf the hell out of the AI and the impossible times and drift scores on Need For Speed 2015 that got messed up because of the Speedlists update three years ago last month!!! angry

FIX YOUR GAMES BEFORE YOU BRING OUT NEW ONES EA, WE'RE STILL COMPLAINING ABOUT YOUR OLD ONES!!! angry

But that's not how you make money. EA is all about making money, as most publishers are.

I loved both of these franchises once upon a time, but I have no confidence in EA to get it right, especially now with their desperate, pathetic attempts at 'live services'.

Hell, Wilson's response to Anthem's failure is to basically keep pushing harder with 'live services', because apparently selling games the 'old way' doesn't work anymore.
I am a man of few words, but many riddles.

Need for Speed will revitalise the "street racer versus cop fantasy"

AGAIN???? It’s getting old, man.

Why can’t EA do NFS Underground/Shift type game?

I haven't played a Need for Speed game since Rivals. If they can do something like that without the online bullshit, I am game.

EA can do one. I thought I'd learn my lesson from BF3 and 4 and the Battlefronts. But no. I watched the trailer and the gameplay footage of Anthem and got suckered in.

Never again. I don't care what my mates are doing, I will never buy an EA game without waiting until it's been released and reviewed. Or at least keep an eye on the player's reactions.
Hellsteeth!

I'm waiting for SquareEnix/Taito to make a new Chase HQ game.

This time I'll make sure I play it when I first get it in fear of cursed timed events and other BS

Burnout 3: Takedown [Remastered] would be amazing if it were real.

I surprisingly really enjoyed PVZ2, it wouldn’t be a day 1 purchase or anything but I’m glad to see the series continue and I hope for the best with it.

Sea of solitude looks interesting, hope they make PvZ: GW3 more like the first game than the second!

Currently experiencing the less than stellar Payback. After Forza Horizon has mastered the open world racer I would suggest Need for Speed try elsewhere (Underground or Shift would be a better direction as other users have pointed out). The game is pretty but it's hardly an improvement over the garbage that came before it.
I like PVZGW, however I also think the hub world thing needs to go and a third title should resemble the first game more than the second.
Always number 2.
