                         AMENDED AND RESTATED GUARANTY
                         -----------------------------


          AMENDED AND RESTATED GUARANTY, dated as of March 7, 1997 (the
"Guaranty"), from ELECTRONIC ARTS INC., a Delaware corporation (the
"Guarantor"), to FLATIRONS FUNDING, LIMITED PARTNERSHIP, a Delaware limited
partnership (the "Lessor").


                              W I T N E S S E T H:
                              - - - - - - - - - -


          WHEREAS, the Guarantor and the Lessor entered into a Guaranty dated as
of February 14, 1995 (the "Original Guaranty") pursuant to which the Guarantor
guaranteed to the Lessor the due and punctual payment and performance by
Electronic Arts Redwood, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly-owned
subsidiary of the Guarantor (the "Guaranteed Subsidiary"), of its obligations
under a certain Agreement for Lease (the "Agreement for Lease") and a certain
Lease Agreement (the "Master Lease") both dated as of February 14, 1995; and

          WHEREAS, the Lessor and the Guaranteed Subsidiary propose to enter
into an amended and restated Agreement for Lease, (the "Amended and Restated
Agreement for Lease") and an amendment to the Lease Agreement (the "Master Lease
Amendment") both dated as of the date hereof (the Amended and Restated Agreement
for Lease, as it may be further amended, restated, modified, supplemented or
extended from time to time, and the Master Lease, as amended by the Master Lease
Amendment and as it may be further amended, restated, modified, supplemented, or
extended from time to time, are collectively hereinafter referred to as the
"Guaranteed Agreements"); and

          WHEREAS, the Lessor is unwilling to enter into the Amended and
Restated Agreement for Lease and the Master Lease Amendment with the Guaranteed
Subsidiary unless the Guarantor enters into this Amended and Restated Guaranty
amending and restating the Original Guaranty in its entirety.

          NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and for other good
and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby
acknowledged, the Original Guaranty is hereby amended and restated in its
entirety as follows:

          1.   Guaranty.  (a)  The Guarantor hereby unconditionally and
               --------                                               
irrevocably guarantees to the Lessor the due and punctual performance of and
compliance by the Guaranteed Subsidiary with all obligations, covenants,
warranties, undertakings and conditions contained in or arising under the
Guaranteed Agreements, including, but not limited to, the full and punctual
payment by the Guaranteed Subsidiary, when due, whether at the stated due date,
by acceleration or otherwise, of any and all rent, obligations, liabilities,
indebtedness and other amounts of every kind arising out of the Guaranteed
Agreements, all amounts in respect of the indemnities provided for in the
Guaranteed Agreements, and all damages (whether provided for in the


<PAGE>

Guaranteed Agreements or otherwise permitted by law) in respect of any failure
or refusal by the Guaranteed Subsidiary to make any such payment, howsoever
created, arising or evidenced, voluntary or involuntary, whether direct or
indirect, absolute or contingent, now or hereafter existing or owing to the
Lessor (all the foregoing obligations and undertakings are collectively referred
to hereinafter as the "Obligations").

          (b)  This Guaranty is an absolute and unconditional guaranty of
performance and payment when due under the Guaranteed Agreements and not of
collection of any indebtedness contained in or arising under the Guaranteed
Agreements.  This Guaranty is in no way conditioned upon any attempt to collect
from the Guaranteed Subsidiary or upon any other event or contingency, and shall
be binding upon and enforceable against the Guarantor without regard to the
validity or enforceability of the Guaranteed Agreements or of any term thereof.
If for any reason the Guaranteed Subsidiary shall fail or be unable duly and
punctually to pay any such amount when due under the Guaranteed Agreements, the
Guarantor will forthwith pay, if not already paid by the Guaranteed Subsidiary,
the same immediately upon demand.

          (c)  In case either of the Guaranteed Agreements shall be terminated
as a result of the rejection thereof by any trustee, receiver or liquidating
agent of the Guaranteed Subsidiary or any of its properties in any bankruptcy,
insolvency, reorganization, arrangement, composition, readjustment, liquidation,
dissolution or similar proceeding, the Guarantor's obligations hereunder shall
continue to the same extent as if such agreement had not been so rejected. The
Guarantor agrees that this Guaranty shall continue to be effective or be
reinstated, as the case may be, if at any time payment to the Lessor of the
Obligations or any part thereof is rescinded or must otherwise be returned by
the Lessor upon the insolvency, bankruptcy or reorganization of the Guaranteed
Subsidiary, or otherwise, as though such payment to the Lessor had not been
made.

          (d)  The Guarantor shall pay all reasonable costs, expenses and
damages incurred (including, without limitation, attorneys' fees and
disbursements) in connection with the enforcement of (i) the Obligations to the
extent that such costs, expenses and damages are not paid by the Guaranteed
Subsidiary and (ii) the obligations of the Guarantor under this Guaranty.

          2.   Guaranty Continuing and Unlimited.  The obligations of the
               ---------------------------------                        
Guarantor hereunder shall be continuing and unlimited, shall not be subject to
any counterclaim, set-off, deduction or defense (other than payment or
performance) based upon any claim the Guarantor may have against the Lessor or
the Guaranteed Subsidiary or any other Person, and shall remain in full force
and effect without regard to, and shall not be released, discharged or in any
way affected by any circumstance or condition (whether or not the Guarantor
shall have any knowledge or notice thereof) whatsoever which might constitute a
legal or equitable discharge or defense including, but not limited to (a) any
express or implied amendment or modification of or supplement to the Guaranteed
Agreements or any other agreement referred to in either thereof, or any other
instrument applicable to the Guaranteed Subsidiary or to the Obligations, or any
part thereof, or any assignment or transfer of any thereof; (b) any failure on
the part of the Guaranteed Subsidiary to perform or comply with the Guaranteed
Agreements or any failure of any other Person to perform or comply with any term
of the Guaranteed Agreements, or any

                                       2
<PAGE>

other agreement as aforesaid; (c) any waiver, consent, change, extension,
indulgence or other action or any action or inaction under or in respect of the
Guaranteed Agreements, or any other agreement as aforesaid, or this Guaranty,
whether or not the Lessor, the Guaranteed Subsidiary or the Guarantor has notice
or knowledge of any of the foregoing; (d) any bankruptcy, insolvency,
reorganization, arrangement, readjustment, composition, liquidation or similar
proceeding with respect to the Guarantor or the Guaranteed Subsidiary, or their
respective properties or their creditors, or any action taken by any trustee or
receiver or by any court in any such proceeding; (e) any furnishing or
acceptance of additional security or any release of any security (and the
Guarantor authorizes the Lessor to furnish, accept or release said security);
(f) any limitation on the liability or Obligations of the Guaranteed Subsidiary
under the Guaranteed Agreements (other than any limitation expressly provided
for therein) or any termination, cancellation, frustration, invalidity or
unenforceability, in whole or in part, of the Guaranteed Agreements, or any term
of any thereof; (g) any lien, charge or encumbrance on or affecting the
Guarantor's or the Guaranteed Subsidiary's respective assets and properties; (h)
any act, omission or breach on the part of the Lessor under the Guaranteed
Agreements, or any other agreement at any time existing between the Lessor and
the Guaranteed Subsidiary or any other law, governmental regulation or other
agreement applicable to the Lessor or any Obligation; (i) any claim as a result
of any other dealings among the Lessor, the Guarantor or the Guaranteed
Subsidiary or any of them; (j) the assignment of the Guaranteed Agreements by
the Lessor to any other Person, or the assignment of this Guaranty by the Lessor
to any Person permitted under Section 6 of that certain Amended and Restated
Guarantor's Consent dated as of the date hereof among the Guarantor, the Lessor
and The Dai-Ichi Kangyo Bank, Limited, New York Branch, as Collateral Agent; (k)
any change in the name of the Lessor, the Guaranteed Subsidiary or any other
person referred to herein; or (l) any failure by the Lessor to perfect or
continue the perfection of any lien or security interest in any collateral or
any failure by the Lessor to protect the property covered by any such lien or
security interest.

          The unconditional obligations of the Guarantor set forth herein
constitute the full recourse obligations of the Guarantor enforceable against it
to the full extent of all of its present and future income, assets and
properties.

          3.   Waiver.  The Guarantor unconditionally waives: (a) notice of any
               ------                                                         
of the matters referred to in Section 2 hereof; (b) all notices which may be
required by statute, rule of law or otherwise to preserve any rights against the
Guarantor hereunder, including, without limitation, notice of the acceptance of
this Guaranty, or the creation, renewal, extension, modification or accrual of
the Obligations or notice of any other matters relating thereto, any
presentment, demand, notice of dishonor, protest, nonpayment of any damages or
other amounts payable under the Guaranteed Agreements; (c) any requirement for
the enforcement, assertion or exercise of any right, remedy, power or privilege
under or in respect of the Guaranteed Agreements, including, without limitation,
diligence in collection or protection of or realization upon the Obligations or
any part thereof or any collateral therefor; (d) any requirement of diligence;
(e) any requirement to mitigate the damages resulting from a default by the
Guaranteed Subsidiary under the Guaranteed Agreements; (f) the occurrence of
every other condition precedent to which the Guarantor or the Guaranteed
Subsidiary may otherwise be entitled; (g) the right to require the Lessor to
proceed against the Guaranteed Subsidiary or any

                                       3
<PAGE>

other Person liable on the Obligations, to proceed against or exhaust any
security held from the Guaranteed Subsidiary or any other Person, or to pursue
any other remedy in the Lessor's power whatsoever, and the Guarantor waives the
right to have the property of the Guaranteed Subsidiary first applied to the
discharge of the Obligations; and (h) the defense of any statute of limitations
affecting the enforcement of the Guaranty or the liability of the Guarantor, the
Guaranteed Subsidiary or any other Person liable on the Obligations.

          The Lessor may, at its election, exercise any right or remedy it may
have against the Guaranteed Subsidiary or any security held by the Lessor,
including, without limitation, the right to foreclose upon any such security by
judicial or nonjudicial sale, without affecting or impairing in any way the
liability of the Guarantor hereunder, except to the extent the Obligations have
been paid, and the Guarantor waives any defense arising out of the absence,
impairment or loss of any right of reimbursement, contribution or subrogation or
any other right or remedy of the Guarantor against the Guaranteed Subsidiary or
any such security, whether resulting from such election by the Lessor or
otherwise.

          The Guarantor understands that the liability of the Guaranteed
Subsidiary to the Lessor for the Obligations may be secured by real property and
that the Guarantor shall be liable for the full amount of its liability
hereunder notwithstanding foreclosure on such real property by trustee sale or
any other reason impairing the Guarantor's right to proceed against the
Guaranteed Subsidiary.  The Guarantor waives all rights and defenses that the
Guarantor may have because the Guaranteed Subsidiary's Obligations are secured
by real property.  This means, among other things: (a) the Lessor may collect
from the Guarantor without first foreclosing on any real or personal property
collateral pledged by the Guaranteed Subsidiary; and (b) if the Lessor
forecloses on any real property collateral pledged by the Guaranteed Subsidiary:
(i) the amount of the debt may be reduced only by the price for which that
collateral is sold at the foreclosure sale, even if the collateral is worth more
than the sale price, and (ii) the Lessor may collect from the Guarantor even if
the Lessor, by foreclosing on the real property collateral, has destroyed any
right the Guarantor may have to collect from the Guaranteed Subsidiary.  This is
an unconditional and irrevocable waiver of any rights and defenses the Guarantor
may have because the Guaranteed Subsidiary's Obligations are secured by real
property.  These rights and defenses include, but are not limited to, any rights
or defenses based upon Section 580a, 580b, 580d, or 726 of the California Code
of Civil Procedure.

          The Guarantor waives any defense arising by reason of any disability
or other defense of the Guaranteed Subsidiary or by reason of the cessation from
any cause whatsoever of the liability, either in whole or in part, of the
Guaranteed Subsidiary to the Lessor for the Obligations.  The Guarantor hereby
waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, all rights and benefits under
Section 2809 of the California Civil Code purporting to reduce a guarantor's
obligations in proportion to the principal obligation, all rights and benefits
under Section 580a of the California Code of Civil Procedure governing
determination of fair market value following the exercise of power of sale, all
rights and benefits under Section 580b of the California Code of Civil Procedure
stating that no deficiency may be recovered on a real property purchase money
obligation, all rights and benefits under Section 580d of the California Code of
Civil Procedure stating that no deficiency may be recovered on a note secured by
a deed of trust on

                                       4
<PAGE>

real property in case such real property is sold under the power of sale
contained in such deed of trust, and all rights and benefits under Section 726
of the California Code of Civil Procedure and any and all similar laws now in
effect or hereafter enacted in the State of California regarding the procedures
to be followed by a creditor with real property security and/or limiting the
right of such a creditor to a deficiency judgment, including, without
limitation, the California law now in effect stating that the Lessor must first
proceed against any real property collateral before commencing an action to
collect the Obligations, if such sections, or any of them, have any application
hereto or any application to the Guarantor. Without limiting the generality of
the foregoing or any other provision hereof, the Guarantor irrevocably waives
any defense that the Guarantor may have under Section 580a of the California
Code of Civil Procedure including, without limitation, the requirement that (x)
the Lessor bring a lawsuit against the Guarantor under this Guaranty (if at all)
within three months after the date which the Lessor may hereafter elect to
complete a nonjudicial foreclosure sale (if any) under any deed of trust now or
hereafter securing the Obligations and (y) the Guarantor be credited with the
fair market value (as determined after court hearing) of any real property
encumbered by any such deed of trust which the Lessor may hereafter elect to
nonjudicially foreclose (if any). The Guarantor expressly waives any and all
benefits under the California Civil Code Sections 2808, 2810, 2819, 2821, 2839,
2845, 2848, 2849, 2850 and 2855.

          The Guarantor understands that the Lessor's exercise of certain rights
and remedies contained in the Guaranteed Agreements may affect or eliminate the
Guarantor's rights of subrogation against the Guaranteed Subsidiary and that the
Guarantor may therefore incur partially or totally nonreimbursable liability
hereunder; nevertheless, the Guarantor hereby authorizes and empowers the
Lessor, its successors, endorsees and/or assignees, to exercise in its or their
sole discretion, any rights and remedies, or any combination thereof, which may
then be available, it being the purpose and intent of the Guarantor that its
obligations hereunder shall be absolute, independent and unconditional under any
and all circumstances.

          The Guarantor assumes the responsibility for being and keeping
informed of the financial condition of the Guaranteed Subsidiary and of all
other circumstances bearing upon the risk of nonpayment of the Obligations and
agrees that the Lessor shall not have any duty to advise the Guarantor of
information regarding any condition or circumstance or any change in such
condition or circumstance.  The Guarantor acknowledges that the Lessor has not
made any representation to the Guarantor concerning the financial condition of
the Guaranteed Subsidiary.

          4.   Representations and Warranties of the Guarantor.  The Guarantor
               -----------------------------------------------               
represents and warrants to the Lessor that:

          (a)  Corporate Existence.  The Guarantor (i) is duly organized,
               -------------------                                      
validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware,
(ii) has the corporate power, authority and legal right to own or operate its
properties or to lease the properties it operates and to conduct the business in
which it is currently engaged and (iii) is duly qualified as a foreign
corporation and in good standing under the laws of each jurisdiction where its
ownership, lease or operation of properties or the conduct of its business
requires such qualification, except where such failure to qualify would not have
a material adverse effect on the financial condition or business of Guarantor
and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole.

          (b)  Corporate Power; Authorization; Enforceable Obligations.  The
               -------------------------------------------------------     
Guarantor has the corporate power, authority and legal right to make, deliver
and perform this Guaranty and has taken all necessary corporate action to
authorize the execution, delivery and performance of this Guaranty.  No consent
of any other Person (including, without limitation, stockholders and creditors
of the Guarantor), and no authorization of, notice to, or other act by any
governmental authority, agency or instrumentality is required in connection with
the execution, delivery, performance, validity or enforceability of this
Guaranty.  This Guaranty has been duly executed and delivered on behalf of the
Guarantor and constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of the
Guarantor, enforceable against the Guarantor in accordance with its terms.

          (c)  No Legal Bar.  The execution, delivery and performance by the
               ------------                                                
Guarantor of this Guaranty will not violate any provision of any law or
regulation applicable to the Guarantor or of any award, order or degree
applicable to the Guarantor of any court, arbitrator or governmental authority,
or of the Certificate of Incorporation or By-Laws of the Guarantor, or of any
security issued by the Guarantor or of any material mortgage, indenture, lease,
contract or other agreement or undertaking to which the Guarantor is a party or
by which the Guarantor or any of its properties or assets may be bound.

          (d)  No Material Litigation.  There is no action, suit, proceeding or
               ----------------------                                         
investigation at law or in equity by or before any court, governmental body,
agency, commission or other tribunal now pending or, to the best knowledge of
Guarantor, threatened against or affecting the Guarantor or any of its property
or rights which questions the enforceability of this Guaranty or which, if
adversely determined, would have a material adverse impact on the financial
condition or business of the Guarantor and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole,
or which, if adversely determined, would materially impair the ability of the
Guarantor to perform its obligations hereunder.

          (e)  Employee Benefit Plans.  Each Plan and, to the best knowledge of
               ----------------------                                         
the Guarantor, each Multiemployer Plan, has been administered in accordance with
its terms in all material respects and complies in all material respects with
all applicable requirements of law and regulations, and, to the extent
applicable, (i) no Reportable Event has occurred with respect to any Plan or, to
the best knowledge of the Guarantor, any Multiemployer Plan which would have a
materially adverse effect on the financial condition or business of the
Guarantor and its

                                       6
<PAGE>

affiliates, taken as a whole; (ii) no steps have been taken to terminate any
Plan or to appoint a receiver to administer any Plan or, to the best knowledge
of the Guarantor, to terminate or appoint a receiver to administer any
Multiemployer Plan, and neither the Guarantor nor any of its affiliates has
withdrawn from any Multiemployer Plan or initiated steps to do so; (iii) there
is no Unfunded Vested Liability or withdrawal liability with respect to any Plan
or, to the best knowledge of the Guarantor, any Multiemployer Plan, that would
have, in the event of termination of such Plan or withdrawal from such
Multiemployer Plan, a materially adverse effect on the financial condition or
business of the Guarantor and its affiliates, taken as a whole; (iv) no
contribution failure has occurred with respect to any Plan sufficient to give
rise to a lien under Section 302(f) of the Employee Retirement Income Security
Act of 1974, as amended, and any regulations promulgated and rulings issued
thereunder ("ERISA"); and (v) no condition exists or event or transaction has
occurred with respect to any Plan or, to the best knowledge of the Guarantor,
any Multiemployer Plan, which could reasonably be expected to result in the
incurrence by the Guarantor or any of its affiliates of any material liability,
fine or penalty. For purposes of this Guaranty: (A) Plan shall mean an "employee
pension benefit plan", as such term is defined in Section 3(2) of ERISA, which
is subject to Title IV of ERISA (other than a Multiemployer Plan) and to which
the Guarantor or any corporation, trade or business that is, at any relevant
time, required to be aggregated with the Guarantor, under Sections 414(b), (c),
(m) or (o) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and any regulations
promulgated and rulings issued thereunder (the "Code") or Section 4001 of ERISA,
may have any liability, including any liability by reason of having been a
substantial employer within the meaning of Section 4063 of ERISA, at any time
during the preceding five years, or by reason of being deemed to be a
contributing sponsor under Section 4069 of ERISA; (B) Multiemployer Plan shall
mean a plan described in Section 3(37) of ERISA and to which the Guarantor or
any corporation, trade or business that is, at any relevant time, required to be
aggregated with the Guarantor, under Sections 414(b), (c), (m) or (o) or of the
Code or Section 4001 of ERISA may have any liability; (C) Reportable Event shall
mean a "reportable event" as defined in Section 4043 of ERISA and the
regulations issued thereunder; and (D) Unfunded Vested Liability shall mean,
relative to any Plan, at any time, the excess (if any) of (I) the present value
of all vested nonforfeitable benefits under such Plan over (II) the fair market
value of all Plan assets allocable to such benefits, all determined as of the
then most recent valuation date for such Plan, but only to the extent that such
excess represents a potential liability of the Guarantor or any affiliate to the
Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation or any successor thereto (the "PBGC") or
the Plan under Title IV of ERISA. Neither the Guarantor nor any entity required
(at any relevant time) to be aggregated with the Guarantor under Section 414(b),
(c), (m) or (o) of the Code or Section 4001 of ERISA has ever sponsored or
maintained, had any obligation to contribute to, had liability under or has
otherwise been a party to, any (i) "employee pension benefit plan" (as such term
is defined in ERISA) subject to Section 412 of the Code, Part 3 of Subtitle B of
Title I of ERISA or Title IV of ERISA, or (ii) a "welfare plan" (as such term is
defined ERISA) that provides for continuing benefits or coverage for any
participant or beneficiary of a participant after such participant's termination
of employment except to the extent required by applicable law.

          (f)  Guaranteed Subsidiary.  The Guarantor owns and will continue to
               ---------------------                                         
own, directly or indirectly, not less than all of the issued and outstanding
shares of capital stock of the Guaranteed Subsidiary.  All such shares have been
validly issued, are fully paid and non-assessable and are free and clear of any
liens or encumbrances.

          (g)  Taxes.  The Guarantor and each of its subsidiaries has filed all
               -----                                                          
federal and other income tax returns and reports required by law to have been
filed by it and has paid all taxes and governmental charges thereby shown to be
owing, except any such taxes or charges which are being diligently contested in
good faith by appropriate proceedings and for which adequate reserves in
accordance with generally accepted accounting principles shall have been set
aside on its books.

          (h)  Compliance with Laws.  The Guarantor and each of its subsidiaries
               --------------------                                            
is in compliance with all applicable laws, rules, regulations and orders of any
governmental authority (including, without limitation, all applicable laws,
rules, regulations and orders relating to environmental protection, the use and
disposal of hazardous substances and building and land use), except those the
non-compliance with which would not, either singly or in the aggregate,
materially adversely effect the financial condition or business of the Guarantor
and its subsidiaries taken as a whole or impair the ability of the Guarantor to
perform its obligations hereunder.

          5.   Payments.  Each payment by the Guarantor to the Lessor under this
               --------                                                        
Guaranty shall be made by transferring the amount thereof to the Lessor or an
account designated by the Lessor in immediately available funds without set-off
or counterclaim.  The making of any payments by the Guarantor hereunder shall
not constitute a waiver of any rights not waived pursuant hereto that the
Guarantor may have against the Lessor or the Guaranteed Subsidiary.

          6.   Parties.  This Guaranty shall inure to the benefit of the Lessor
               -------                                                        
and its successors, assigns or transferees, and shall be binding upon the
Guarantor and its successors and assigns.  The Guarantor may not delegate any of
its duties under this Guaranty without the prior written consent of the Lessor
or any Person to whom the Lessor has assigned this Guaranty.  Upon notice to the
Guarantor, the Lessor and its successors, assigns and transferees may assign its
or their rights and benefits under this Guaranty to any financial institution
providing financing to the Lessor in connection with the Guaranteed Agreements.

          7.   Notices.  All notices, demands and other communications between
               -------                                                       
the Lessor and the Guarantor under this Guaranty shall be in writing and shall
be delivered or sent to the address or telecopier number shown below, or to such
other address or telecopier number as either party may by written notice to the
other have designated for such purpose.  Any such notice, demand or other
communication shall not be effective until actually received.

applicable laws, rules, regulations and orders of any governmental authority
having jurisdiction over its or such subsidiary's business, as the case may be,

its subsidiaries to, pay and discharge all taxes, assessments and governmental
charges or levies imposed upon it or such subsidiary or upon its or such
subsidiary's income or properties, as the case may be, prior to the date on
which penalties attach thereto, except to the extent that (i) any such tax,
assessment, charge or levy is being contested in good faith by appropriate
proceedings and adequate reserves therefor have been established by the
Guarantor or such subsidiary, as the case may be, or (ii) the failure so to pay
or discharge any such tax, assessment, charge or levy would not materially
adversely affect the financial condition or business of the Guarantor and its
subsidiaries, taken as a whole.
