What's this obsession of Nintendo fans with EA? Last time I checked they were the worst thing that ever happened to gaming and Nintendo fans look at it and say: "Damn, I wish worst thing that ever happened to gaming senpai would notice me".
Probably because so many buy their sports games, that without them, a console is legally dead.
Also, EA is the only company allowed to produce American Football games since they acquired total exclusivity rights for it. So not having Madden on Switch means for many in the US that they would have to buy another console just for that game, for instance. (I still wonder how much they bribed the NFL for them to agree to such a stupid deal)
But I agree about their non-sports titles, these are really not needed on Nintendo platforms.
