Electronic Arts is an American developer and publisher of video games. Since its founding on May 28, 1982, it has become one of the biggest organizations of its type. However, it has largely been identified by its emphasis on PC games, as opposed to console and handheld titles.

History Edit

Initially, EA, as it is often called, focused on developing and publishing games solely for the PC. Although the company began supporting consoles in the 90's, with games like the Need for Speed franchise and spinoffs of their various PC games, the company has always been a "PC-First" enterprise. This emphasis on PC gaming from such a large company has been one of the reasons PC gaming has often been a larger industry than console gaming.
