All The Brands And Companies That Used To Be Known By A Different Name
EA Games originally sounded like it could have been mistaken for an Amazon conglomerate.
If you’re not familiar, EA Games is one of the leading video games and software development companies in the world. But when former Apple director of strategy and marketing Trip Hawkins founded the company in 1982, he named it Amazin’ Games, which sort of sold the company short on everything they offered and did. So he decided to rename the company as it grew, settling on EA Games to showcase video games and software development as more of an actual art form.
