For brevity's sake, I've also excluded a handful of vaporware handheld/browser/cellphone titles (any hits on handhelds will be included but "Fantasy Safari" and "Road Trippin'" titles will be skipped).

2008
Mass Effect (the first one was 2008)
Army of Two
Boom Blox
Rock Band
Spore
Dead Space

2009
Grand Slam Tennis
Battlefield
Dragon Age
The Saboteur

2010
APB
Deathspank
Shank
Mirror's Edge

2011
Spare Parts
Bulletstorm
The Fancy Pants Adventures
Gatling Gears
Star Wars: The Old Republic (KOTOR existed already, but counting it due to MASSIVE change in the game's scope).

2012
NFL Blitz
Kingdoms of Amalur
Warp
Syndicate (revival of ancient PC title, so not a completely new IP but still a risk.)

2013
Fuse
Titanfall (not yet released)

Analysis: It's not so much that Electronic Arts is opposed to taking risks as that they focus heavily on their existing game studios instead of acquiring new ones. If you have a group that makes mega-hits like Dragon Age, Mass Effect, The Sims, and Battlefield 3, you don't put them to work on new projects. At the same time, Electronic Arts doesn't seem to feel any need to grow by taking risks by acquiring additional development studios. They have their stable of AAA studios and some cheap ancillary appendages that make cheap vapor-ware browser/cellphone/handheld trash for easy money. That's all they seem interested in, and maybe that's okay. They are already the biggest publisher in gaming and often are so big that the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing, so I think this works.
Don't cloud internet rage and pithy negative comments with facts! That just spoils the day of people trying to spoil other people's days by regurgitating unwarranted hate.
