ScrewAttack has posted a new video titled The Best Studio EA Killed EVER! Several high profile developers are memorialized, and Origin Systems gets top billing in the first two minutes of commentary. At first, this clip inspires a "Hell, yeah! We miss Origin too." That very quickly turns into a "Good lord! Take a breath, dude." We'd recommend watching the video embedded below in order to avoid their website's cacophony of banner ads, streaming video ads and pop overs. Then we'd answer this rant with a plea of our own: people, don't jump on the screaming internet bandwagon. Give credit where credit is due. There were some bad decisions made at Electronic Arts that caused irreparable harm to the Wing Commander series. And this tirade doesn't begin to address them. The implication is always that EA swooped in with the axe at the end, but EA actually saved Origin when it hit financial crisis in 1992. Everything from WC2 Deluxe onward, including the big budget movie sequence of games like WC3/WC4, and all of the spinoffs like Privateer, Armada, the CCG, Academy TV show and novels were during EA's tenure. A series of unfortunate events may have ended the golden era, but this was after a decade and tens of millions of dollars of investment in Wing Commander.
