After a week of accusations being thrown around that always-online wasn't actually necessary to keep SimCity running, and that it was tacked on merely as DRM, EA's finally trying to make amends by offering up a free game to SimCity buyers.
The eight games up for the offer are the following:
· Battlefield 3 (Standard Edition)
· Bejeweled 3
· Dead Space 3 (Standard Edition)
· Mass Effect 3 (Standard Edition)
· Medal of Honor: Warfighter (Standard Edition)
· Need For Speed Most Wanted (Standard Edition)
· Plants vs. Zombies
· SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition
To get the most bang for your buck, Dead Space 3 is probably your best bet, since it’s the most recent release and is still going at retail for $60. Alternatively, Battlefield 3 and Mass Effect 3 aren't bad choices either. Let's not talk even bring Plants vs. Zombies or Medal of Honor: Warfighter to the table.
The offer is even valid for new SimCity buyers until March 25th. However, the game must be redeemed by March 30th, or else the offer will no longer be available. Two games for the price of one? Sounds like a deal…
