EA’s announced a massive list of games that it’ll shut down this year, beginning next week with Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth II.

The rest of the list is EA Sports-related, with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09, FIFA 09, NHL 09, NBA Live 09 and Euro 2008 some of the titles up for the chop.

“These decisions to retire games is never easy,” said EA on its website.

“The development teams and operational staff pour their hearts into these games almost as much as the customers playing them and it is hard to see one retired. We hope you have gotten many hours of enjoyment out of the games and we appreciate your ongoing patronage.”

The full list of games and the dates they’re shutting down is below via the EA website.

    Guess this is a great way for EA to fight secondhand sales of slightly out of date sports games. I mean 09 and 10 aren’t exactly old in my book. I still use NCAA Football 10 to play online with friends, same with Madden 10. A friend of mine uses 09. Guess EA wants us to buy the new game 60usd, spend another 20-30usd in dlc, and do it all again the next year.

    Guess I won’t be playing online anymore.
