A good start might be making the poll and thread title the same instead of opposites.

Yep that would be great considering I saw the thread title and cast my vote based on if I dislike Gameloft and therefore voted for the wrong thing.

Do I like gameloft? As a company they show talent and have proven themselves successful. But I detest their marketing strategy. Do I like gameloft games? Some parts of some games. MC2 multiplayer, hero of Sparta when it first came out.

As a whole, their games can be fun, but they need to release something original before I support them.

More like, they need to actually support their games. You can almost guarantee that at most, one title, will even get an update. And it definitely won't be for content.

They're the absolute worst (EA's pretty good with their 1 update) at providing updates for their games.

They have very few Great games, some Good games, a lot of OK games and some terrible bad ones. Most of their games are clones of other already popular franchises, but hey this companies would never ever release a game in the appstore.
I think I only hate
1. Their lack of focus in just one or two games, creating a really Console Quality experience
2. Their lack of new IP
3. The freaking BIG memmory their games take.

I dislike that they shamefully rip-off other popular franchises, thinking that they may fool the naive iOS user base into buying their games. I mean, there's nothing wrong in copying some elements from the best games out there, but if you go as far as naming your game N.O.V.A, or having a main character with his t-shirt half tucked in, you know that's inexcusable.

I'm pretty sure there are talented people working at Gameloft (I loved Spiderman and kinda enjoyed the Hero of Sparta games), but they have to create their new, original I.P's instead of ripping off other series.

Overall, EA's disappointing, but definitely a hell of a lot better than Gameloft. I've been following their titles for quite a bit, and the only update I can remember is the one for GT Academy adding the Bugatti. EA's had updates for Hot Pursuit, Fifa, Madden, Monopoly, Tetris, Shift, Mirror's Edge, etc etc. They weren't huge updates (except for Hot Pursuit), but updates nonetheless.

Look up the Gameloft titles, a good majority of them are still ver 1.0.0.

just copy and port, no original.
