Default EA is voted the worst company in America

The Voters Have Spoken: EA Is Your Worst Company In America For 2012! - The Consumerist

I don't think this'll change how they roll, but at least it gets the world out that EA is a pile of ****s.

If you think EA treats their customers badly, you should see how they treat their employees.

The site is called Consumerists, and it's for...consumers. Thus, if you saw the match up charts, the worst company in America candidates only consisted of companies that everyday consumers would deal with.

This...I don't see how EA can be that bad of a company. Because they don't make games like we want? Its a business though. How else would they be the worst company of the year? I just don't get it.

One of the biggest reasons I saw listed was that they'd rush their games to get 'em out on time, then any glitches they'd have to fix would be available only in a DLC patch. So you have to pay them, not only to buy their games, but also for them to fix them. But I figure that must just be the tip of the iceburg. Look for the "ea_spouse" article I linked to in my first post and that might give you more of an insight into the company. Although it's more about how they treat their employees than their customers.

ea has always been a bad company, but their somewhat recent (the last 8 years or so) spree of buying up and killing smaller dev teams has really been hurting everyone.

also, stuff like this:

it was fine to mod singleplayer games before.

Thing is, Bank of America just so happens to work in an industry where it CAN do more damage.

Its not exactly fair if only 'important' industries can win (lose?) these competitions based on that. Otherwise, other crap companies in other fields could never get the proper exposure for their follies.

I feel its more fair to take the principles of the bad moves EA has made, and imagine them as a bank or some other sensitive industry. Overpricing or incomplete services, buggy systems (the equivalent to Origin) causing outages keeping you from access to your account. Nickle and diming for specific services... EA as a bank? sounds like trouble.

Well I think most people are just hating EA right now because their games aren't delivering. Isn't that true? They aren't meeting the consumers standards and thats why the consumers are saying they suck.

What's Monsanto?
