Welcome to the land of crazy - a Bioware poster has been banned from playing Dragon Age II by EA for saying nasty things about EA on the Bioware forums.

The catch? He's banned from the single player game.

Yes, that's right, they are holding his purchased game hostage.

But restricting access to a singleplayer, offline game, even in an incidental situation like this, is a problem. EA's consolidation of online accounts can be a good thing in some cases (I appreciate the convenience of EA Sports games knowing who I am because of my gamertag), but in cases like this, it's also a cause for concern.

Not to mention serving as an example, if ever one was needed, that in 2011 a video game is never truly and 100% your property.
Ouch.
