Classic EA games coming to Steam


For such a long time some of the most famous games from the 90s and early 2000s have been unavailable on the world’s largest game store, Steam. Electronic Arts was the publisher behind all of them and to get them, you needed to have EA App/Origin installed, a separate storefront with more data shared, more card details stored, and more hassle to just pick up and play – not helped either by the fact the EA storefront is not the most user-friendly storefront in town.

Now, for reasons known only to men in big wigs who sit around board tables, over 20 classic EA titles have appeared on Steam so you can add them to your library with the other games you love.

Absolute classics like the Command & Conquer franchise and Dungeon Keeper – we love Dungeon Keeper are there – even the daddy of the God sim, Populous and Populous 2 are there (side note, I reviewed Populous 2 originally back in the day for the Atari ST. Never say I don’t know my stuff!)

Whatever the reason these games have suddenly appeared, we should rejoice and encourage EA that choice is the way forward by picking one or two of them up and adding them to our Steam libraries as things like Dungeon Keeper 2 are only $2 at the moment
