Decisions, Decisions

We can all agree that the launch of SimCity 2013 was a big disappointment for us. Now Electronic Arts is apologizing for the trouble that was caused by giving us one of their games to download for free. We get to choose from Battlefield 3, Bejeweled 3, Dead Space 3, Mass Effect 3, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, Need For Speed Most Wanted, Plants vs. Zombies, and SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition (wtf?).

I haven't played any of these titles before, and I've been debating on which of these I should get. I'm definitely not going to waste this freebie on Plants vs. Zombies or Bejeweled since I can get those on my iPhone. And who would take SimCity 4, the 10 year-old brother of the current game?

I'm not much of an FPS player on the PC, I do all that on my Xbox. I'm terrified of zombies, so Dead Space 3 is out of the question. I don't think I would enjoy a racing game either. So I went for Mass Effect 3.

And with that, EA was able to grab more money from me because I will most likely want to download the first two games of the series before playing my free game.

You win again, EA.
