  • I'll download it. I've uninstalled the NBA game and I only need one NHL game.
  • Er, this is Golf?
  • I like NHL 2016, this one is a good one, EA should do a new fight night...
  • I'm going to suss this out, haven't played a golf game since Links 386 though.
  • Get "The Golf Club", its more like real golf. (I turn off the commentary) its like the real thing. Fewer distractions.
  • Finally!!! I been waiting for Tiger Woods to enter the vault, best $30 I ever spent.
  • I'll be getting EA Access soon, I guess. They took way too long on this, though. DOOM is out 3 days later, not sure how I'll have time for anything else. Regardless, I've held off on getting Access just for this, it's the one game I've really wanted to play. The other stuff will just be icing on the cake.
  • I've played so many games I never would have bothered touching if it wasn't in the vault. Sigh a genius idea. That reminds me, I should probably get around to finishing Hardline.
  • Madden is the only other game in the Vault I think I'd play. I MIGHT try the Battlefield campaigns, if I run out of stuff to play, but IDK. I tried Peggle 2 during the Access trial, it was OK. Not a hockey or soccer person, and NBA LIVE is trash.
  • Yeah, I don't play sport games really, but I have fifa loaded for when mates come over, and it's also the only thing that got me to play the Battlefields, Dragon Age, Peggle and PvZ. The trials are good too, you get a chance to try out new games before buying, and since companies have all but ignored demos this generation, that makes a huge difference.
  • Up to now have EA ever removed a game from the Vault? Have they publically stated whether a game is permanent in there once added? (Obviously not including things such as trials that are specifically temporary like a free to play weekend etc.)
