EA CEO: We're boring people to death

John Riccitiello, CEO of Electronic Arts, made some surprising comments in an interview with Wall Street Journal at the E3 in Santa Monica, California.

Riccitiello said they are boring people to death and making games that are harder and harder to play.

He also said that the game industry should become more creative, Riccitiello is bothered by the fact that a lot of games are just rinse-and-repeat:
"There's been lots of product that looked like last year's product, that looked a lot like the year before."
Pretty interesting to hear this from the CEO of EA, a company that is well known for producing many of these "boring" sequels.

so very true, EA are the absolute worst at rehashing games year after year, adding very little in new content. I HATE YOU EA AND SO DOES EVERYONE ELSE.
