Top 10 EA Games


They’re biggest game publisher in the industry, so they’re bound to have a few of your favorites under their belt. Welcome to Watchmojo.com and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 Electronic Arts games.

For this list we’re focusing one game per franchise, were also only focusing on games that were not only were published by EA but at the very least has to be developed by a team that is owned or is a subsidiary of EA. Which means that games like Crysis and Titanfall are excluded from the list.

EA may have a bit of a bad rap on the street as of late, but you this unfeeling titan of the industry has still produced more than its fair share of amazing titles. So let’s get started.

#10: "Mirror’s Edge" (2008)


Lets kick off the list with one of the more unique games in the company’s portfolio. You take the role as Faith, a courier who’s a skilled parkour runner trying to clear her sisters name after she has been framed for murder. No easy task given that they live in a totalitarian society where everything is monitored. This action game doesn’t rely on shooting but rather on the fact that it’s a breathtakingly paced first person platformer.

#9: “Dragon Age: Origins” (2009)


After acquiring Canadian developer Bioware, one of the first games they released with the new partnership was a fantastic Fantasy RPG. The titular origins system meant that you picked from one of 6 personally customized characters, each with their own unique backstory. Harking back to Bioware’s Baldur’s gate days, the game brought back the large party, pausable combat play system. You could also build vital relationships with your party members and get them to teach you new tricks, get so angry they leave or even go to bed with you.

#8: “Command and Conquer: Generals - Zero Hour” (2003)


After absorbing Westwood Studios, EA’s first in house C&C game ended up being a great hit that’s aged fairly well. The original Generals was good but had a shortage of content, the Zero Hour expansion however was blessing that’s still fun to play today, especially in Multiplayer, which boasts a total of 12 possible Generals each with unique loadouts that can cater to anyone’s play style. Unless you were a dick and chose the Super Weapon General against your friends.

#7: “SimCity 4” (2003)


The series that gave birth to the city simulation series still knows no true equal. The 4th game in the series is notable for making the shift to a 3D engine. Of course, they retained the imfamous disaster options like Earthquakes, Tornados, Meteor strikes and Volcano’s. Oh and you can upload your characters from The Sims to the game too. It’s widely considered to be a far superior game to the 2013 entry.

#6: “Need for Speed: Underground 2” (2004)


The more recent releases in the series were outscourced to other companies, though honestly our favorite in the franchise remains the 2nd in the Underground series. Underground 2 retained all the amazing customization options, wicked race modes and neon blur madness of its predecessor, and threw it all in to a completely open world for you to rip around it. You’ll never be so proud of such of douche-y looking car.

#5: EA Sports series


Ok so we’re kind of cheating with this entry, to rank a specific sport would be like saying which sport is the best in the world, and we’re not gonna touch that one. While our personal favorite may be the NHL series, being Canadian, we might be a bit biased with that opinion. So weather its Fifa, Madden NFL, NBA live or the Tiger Woods PGA Tour, being the only name in sports isn’t such a bad thing.

#4: “Dead Space” (2008)


A third person survival horror, Dead Space takes Resident Evil 4’s gameplay and puts it in System Shock 2’s setting. Oozing with atmosphere and shit-your-pants scares, Dead Space even brings a few new tricks to the table with it’s zero-G sequences and “don’t shoot for the head” dismemberment mechanics. Also, the death animations really don’t come any gorier than this.

#3: “The Sims 2” (2004)


The revolutionary life simulator that few games can match. At 20 million copies sold The Sims 2 is the best selling PC game to date. There’s no goal in the game unless you want to try to contemplate the meaning of your trivial existence. Just take care of your sims from childhood to going to college to eventually raising a family of their own. And just like any best selling EA game, there’s a mountain of expansions for this one. Remember when they were called expansions?

#2: “Battlefield 3” (2011)


While the latest entry was plagued with bugs at launch, Battlefield 3 set the franchise up as a worthy competitor to Call of Duty, even if many remember it’s launch to be a nightmare as while. Origin anyone? Anyway, while the single player … is forgettable, it’s the multiplayer that makes the game truly shine. Large open maps with up 64 players at once, realtime destruction and tons of drivable, and crashable vehicles, Battlefield redefined the scale of multiplayer shooters.

Before we get to number one, here are a few honorable mentions

#1: “Mass Effect 2” (2010)


Taking the top spot is not only EA and Bioware’s best game to date, but also one of the best games of the 7th Generation. A Sci-Fi epic that defined the Western RPG genre, you travel the galaxy as Commander Shepard, recruiting memorable squad characters and saving humanity in the process. Notable for its staggering amount of lore, multiple choices, and the ability to transfer over your save file from the 1st Mass Effect game, it easily takes the top slot here.
