Skate also revolutionized skateboarding games and killed the Tony Hawk series. Too bad that series lost it's spark, but I suppose like Rock Band, certain genres just get old.
I have to say. Do not run away from Pre-orders for EA Games. Never had an issue with them at all.
@zorrodude - I have to say I like the Origin Client. One feature that I do like is being able to update myself. Plus DL speeds on there has been 3x what steam could do for me.

That being said, I'm still angry with EA regarding Mass Effect 3. No, I do not blame Bioware. The game reeks to me of being released far too early and it's obvious the developers were pushed to finish quickly. The initial release of the game features choppy animation and various other sloppy mistakes that weren't present in the previous ME games. The fact that the DLC released since, which by comparison had no pressure to be released quickly, completes the game just proves the point. The DLC for ME2 expanded on the story but the game already felt complete when you left the Omega 4 relay. On the other hand Aria asked us to help her retake Omega early in Mass Effect 3, and it was months before we even got that part of the story.
Personally I loved Origins AND DA2, but I'm fond of both combat styles. I played both on multiple platforms and I consider Origins style combat better for PC and DA2 style better for console.
Oh I pity you dear friend for loving DA2! Sorry but I must put you down with a Redeemer to the noggin.
BUT, at least be happy about two things regarding EA.
1. They allow servers instead of P2P on FPS games.
2. Supported some developers' attempt to make new engine.
But in all, when you look at it, EA tries it best, but all you can say is that it solely depend on the Developers. Don't believe me?
Take a look at Supreme Commander, a true spawn of Total Annihilation. SC was developed by THQ. SC2 was then killed by Square-Enix, which later made it more RTS than what it was.
So, I WAS surprised when EA allowed DiCE to make General 2. I'm curious on how DiCE will use FB2 engine in this game.
and tbh, I DO miss Westwood. At least, Westwood retained it elements, unlike what happen to RA3 and C&C4
