Twitter is a double-edged sword.
We could say, without fear of being wrong, that one of the most controversial video game companies is Electronic Arts, and this has been the case for a long time. It would not be the first time that this company has been singled out for internal problems, but above all we can say that its bad image comes from some of its consumer-facing policies. Most of these aforementioned policies we can find them in multiplayer video gamesbecause this is the main market of the company known for being the developer of FIFA (although this will change in a year) or Battlefield.
Now, a publication made on the official Twitter account of this company, and related to video games for a single player that, although to a lesser extent, we can also find great exponents within the Electronic Arts catalog, has managed to create a great controversy.
A joke gets out of hand
Without further ado, in the aforementioned tweet you can read in English something like “They are a 10, but they only like single-player video games.” It seems to be, or at least we interpret it that way, that this was intended to be a simple joke like many others that large companies make in this social network today, but Far from being funny, he managed to receive hundreds of criticisms.
They’re a 10 but they only like playing single-player games

Currently this aforementioned tweet has more than 11 thousand quotes, which means (for those of you who are not very involved in this social network) that it is receiving a large number of responses from users, and in this case the majority are negative. . Among these negative responses we can find those given by some of the greats in the industry, like those of Geoff Keighley and Vince Zampellathe latter being especially relevant when working at Electronic Arts itself.
Likewise, we can find great truths among the comments of the users (ignoring those that include disqualifications towards the person who has written that tweet, of course). Among these truths we can highlight the fact that Electronic Arts itself has managed to launch great single-player games, such as Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, and that it is also developing other games of the style, like the remake of Dead Space or the sequel to the game we mentioned above.
