A lesson by Gabriel Karandysovsky.
Electronic Arts (or EA) is a name that needs little introduction — regardless of whether or not you’re a video game aficionado. EA is the publisher behind some of the best-known and most beloved gaming franchises out there, such as FIFA, Madden NFL, Battlefield and Sims.
