I own The Sims 3 as well as Sim city 4 and Sim City 3000

The sims are installed under an EA file While the Sim citys are installed under a Maxis file. They Sim city is made by EA/Maxis as are the Sims. Anyone know why EA takes majority of credit for the Sims and Maxis takes most credit for sim citys? Just curious.

I think Maxis is a branch of EA that does the city building. So simcity 4, having to do with buildings, has a lot more maxis. But Sims 3, which has less building stuff and more personal life, goes to EA. But thats just a shot in the drak

The branch thing Im not sure of but the city building your wrong. I forgot to mention that I have SimCity Societies and the ex-pack for it and they are both listed under Electronic Arts. Thats what confused me.

Yes, I have also noticed this. I'm not sure why they do this.

I just think EA is crazy. I have 4 diff folders that are EA related: EA Game, Electronic Arts, Maxis, and then another maxis folder outside of the programs folder. Weird stuff.

It sure would be a lot easier to find all their games under 1 folder -.-"

Indeedyo. But i like how they change their logo sometimes to match the game. AT least then they still call it EA
