Hate it or love it, EA (Electronic Arts) has always been a strong contender when it comes to gaming, in both developing and publishing games. EA is now a company that still publishes games in cooperation with various developers, as well as develop some of the best AAA titles on the market. In this article, I’m going on a venture where I will present to you 20 Best EA Games for PC, so if you are in doubt what game to buy, I hope that I will make your job easier. If you are up for some quality reading, the list of Best Electronic Arts games is below.
1. Star Wars Battlefront
As Star Wars Battlefront 2 isn’t released yet, I’ve got to give this one prop. Battlefront is an excellent multiplayer game, focused on a fast-paced action from Star Wars universe. Here, you can go against a computer with your friend, or play PvP mode on big and open maps in the game. In Battlefront, you can expect everything, especially if you play against a team that has Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader, which are the deadliest enemies here, yet they have a huge amount of health, so they aren’t easy to kill either. The game lacks a singleplayer campaign, but its multiplayer is top notch.
2. Need for Speed Payback
Need for Speed Payback is a brand new racing game for PC, and it delivers stunning visuals, great driving mechanics, and of course, some FAST cars! The story is a little cliche, as it follows the three protagonists on their way to defeat the cartel controlling Fortune Valley’s underground world. As with almost every NFS game, you’ll also have a chance to indulge in high-speed car chases, race versus other players and customize your cars, which is a big plus after its lack in several NFS games. The game can also be paused, unlike the previous NFS game; oorah! If you play this game for a story, then don’t bother too much, but if you like fast cars, great visuals, and arcade experience, then go for it without overthinking.
3. FIFA 18
FIFA 18 is probably the most popular football game for PC in this moment. I was a fan of PES and disliked FIFA, but now I realize that I was not that smart. FIFA 18 looks gorgeous! It’s a beautiful football simulator, where the core gameplay is at its best, as well as some realistic physics and players’ appearance. FIFA 18 also offers a multiplayer mode, and you can play with your friends on a big LCD TV at your home. Grab some snacks, get yourself a beer and enjoy FIFA 18. It’s that easy to be in love with this great PC sports game!
4. Titanfall 2
Titanfall 2 is surely one of the best computer games published by EA. Why? Well, TItanfall 2 continues where the previous game stopped, even introducing an amazing singleplayer campaign, with memorable characters, Titans, and story. The campaign is one of the best I’ve ever played, and I’m very sorry it’s short. On the multiplayer side, we have a great progression system, where you can level up your titans, upgrade and customize them in order to be the best. It’s a criminally underrated game, whose release date made the things worse, as it’s released with few other AAA games, so it somehow got smothered. Nonetheless, Titanfall 2 is a must-play for first-person shooter lovers.
5. Battlefield 1
Battlefield 1 fulfilled my ever-lasting wish, and that’s to release a game that is set in WW1. To my luck, Battlefield 1 is a badass game, with a fantastic singleplayer campaign, as well as engaging multiplayer, where you’ll engage in battles over a huge open world of the game, ranging from deserts to rainy and muddy terrains. The graphics in this game are more than eye-appealing, plus the game is optimized very well, so even you with low-specs PC can still enjoy the beauty and harshness of this game at the same time.
6. Dead Space 3
Another underrated game is Dead Space 3. I don’t know why, but Dead Space 3 is somehow always overlooked when speaking about survival horror genre. I remember that Dead Space scared the hell out of me, and it was a generally spooky experience. Dead Space 3 embraces more of an action gameplay, but still, it embraces that horror atmosphere that it’s known for. Our protagonist Isaac Clarke is back, on another adventure to fight against Necromorphs, and finish them for good.
7. Mirror’s Edge Catalyst
Mirror’s Edge isn’t for those afraid of heights. Catalyst brings a great parkouring experience, as well as a compelling story. Being an EA game for PC, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst looks gorgeous, although the environment isn’t more than tall buildings and limited city spaces. Aside from that, our female protagonist Faith returns here, and she is more capable and beautiful than ever. Her mission is to discover who killed her family and why, which leads to a great boss fight at the end of the game, which I’ll not spoil.
8. Mass Effect 3
When I started playing Mass Effect 3, I heard that people are generally pissed off about this game. When I finished it, I knew why; because of ending. But, don’t let that steer you away from this game, as the whole presentation and quality of the game are top notch. The characters, including Shepard, are memorable, gameplay is refined, there are more possibilities and choices to make, leveling is better, etc, etc. The game offers tons of fun, and some fun characters, along with a great story and rivalry between Shepard and Illusive Man, and what comes in the end, it’s for you to discover.
9. Crysis 3
But, can it run Crysis? That’s the game we often hear when speaking about GPUs, and when we talk about GPUs, prepare to torch it with Crysis 3. Of course, the game is the best-looking game I’ve ever seen, even in medium and high settings. The gameplay here stays the same, but the game embraces a combination of both urban and jungle-like levels, like the second level in the game, where you’ll see massive FPS drops and need to reduce graphical settings. The game is very fun to play and offers multiple ways to play it, by utilizing your Nano suit, so you can now go stealth, guns blazing, tactical, etc. It’s a very underrated shooter, but you’ll never know how good it is until you play it.
10. Dragon Age: Inquisition
Dragon Age: Inquisition is the best game in the series. Dragon Age series is known for its RPG roots, and this game is also amazing role-playing game for PC. Being an action RPG title, Inquisition combines the elements of traditional RPGs like looting, leveling, customizing and completing various quests with their inquisitor, with action elements which include using swords and magic to gain an advantage. It’s a great looking game, and surely one of the best games of this genre. Congrats to BioWare and EA for this success.
Back to FPS game again, Bulletstorm delivers a fast-paced, blood-boiling action that will make you drop your jaw directly to the ground when you play it. Here, you’ll do some shooting, a LOT of shooting actually, and use your lash, which is a weapon that can grab enemies and throw them around like ragdolls. Aside from that, Bulletstorm offers amazing characters, and while the game has a serious thematics, the constant humor from the characters make it a little more “friendly” and not that dark. It’s definitely one of the most authentic games on the list.
12. Burnout Paradise
When talking about racing games for PC, EA isn’t associated just with NFS series, but with Burnout series too. Burnout Paradise took a whole racing genre to the next level, by introducing a fictional city of Paradise ( a reference to Paradise City, a song from Guns N’ Roses), where you’ll race using cars and motorcycles. Although the vehicles aren’t licensed, they look and feel very good. The vehicles are customizable and upgradable, and you’ll want to try motorcycles. Motorcycles feel excellent in this game, so I often found myself neglecting cars and going straight for the motorcycles. On top of that, the game lets you do some badass stunts that bring you XP, allowing better cars and races. The game is ultra-cheap now. Don’t miss it!
13. The Sims 4
I bet you need a rest from all of those action titles that I’ve mentioned. In that honor, The Sims 4 is here. It’s a life simulation game, in which you start the game by building your characters from scratch. You can completely customize your characters, and even make a family that looks and behaves like your real-life family. Upon doing that, you can manage all of the stuff regarding your family and house, like relationships, kids, job, parties and such things. It’s a fun game, and provide the players with infinite fun, as the possibilities are endless.
14. Medal of Honor: Warfighter
Many gamers remember the old Medal of Honor games, and those new games are left behind. I really don’t know why, but I know that Warfighter is the best game in the series, because of the gameplay, stunning visuals and story. The game continues where the previous left off, and now you are Preacher, whose mission is to put an end to a terrorist group Al-Qaeda. It’s a fun game to play, and there are some levels that include driving and high-speed chases, which made my adrenaline senses tingle in excitement. The game melds all of this into a high-quality FPS and action game.
Another life simulation game is Spore. This game is one of the most original Electronic Arts games for PC, that gives you a possibility to completely control a development of species, beginning from a microscopic organism to a full-grown creature. Not only that but when the creature grows up, you can control its social behavior, as well as interstellar exploration. The game boasts that cartoonish art style, and it’s really unique in that matter, and with lots of possibilities that it offers, I’m sure you’ll have more than few hundreds of hours of playtime.
16. Need for Speed World
I generally put one best game from the particular series, but I felt the need to put Need for Speed World on the list, along with Payback. Why? The reason is simple. It’s my favorite MMO racing game ever, offering a combination of two worlds from the most popular NFS games; Carbon and Most Wanted (2005). Here, you can buy cars, upgrade and customize them however you want, and there is that old-school customizing system that I love so much. On top of that, some cars can be bought with the real money, and those cars are shuffled from time to time, so it doesn’t get boring. However, the official servers for the video game are shut down by EA, but you can still play it offline using a third-party server.
17. The Godfather II
We often see that the games based on movies aren’t reviewed that well. And the truth be told, very few games manage to pull it off. The Godfather II is such game. It’s a third-person shooter game, based on a 1974 movie The Godfather Part II, and offers great shooting and driving mechanics for the time. Now, it’s 8 years since the game was released, but it’s still worth playing if you are up for some nostalgia.
18. Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is a very recognizable game, which is very authentic because of its concept, as well as cartoonish graphics. In this game, you can choose to be either zombies or plants, and engage in multiplayer or cooperative battles. The game offers several modes such as Garden Ops, Vanquish Confirmed, Gnome Bomb and much more, so it will most likely never bore you.
19. The Saboteur
The Saboteurs breaths that noir atmosphere, with its monochromatic parts of the game, as well as introducing a WWII environment, set in Paris. It’s an open-world game, where you’ll be on a venture to put an end to Nazis occupation in Paris and let the city breath again, with fresh colors and feeling. If you are up for a GTA-like experience, then jump straight in The Saboteur. Its compelling story, characters and gameplay will attract you and keep you until the end of the game.
20. James Bond 007: Nightfire
Have you heard about 007: Nightfire? If you haven’t, now it’s time to check it out. It’s a James Bond game, that’s very underrated and less-known than any other EA PC game, but it’s an excellent FPS game, that combines action elements with some well-crafted stealth levels. The end result? A badass James Bond game, with Pierce Brosnan as the main role, and some memorable characters and moments, especially some levels in space.
