Electronic Arts Worst Company in America

Last year around this time, video game publishing juggernaut Electronic Arts was voted Worst Company in America in the annual vote by The Consumerist, beating out companies like Bank of America and joining former winners including Comcast, AIG, and BP.

Well, it would appear that trying to improve their image by making a large donation to a good cause could not help them. EA has, yet again, been dubbed the worst of the worst. And for the first time ever, a company has been voted Worst Company in America for a second consecutive year. Not even BP pulled that off!

The list of things that EA does to piss off the masses is lengthy, and led mostly by their wholly unsubtle methods of trying to get their customers to pay a little extra here and there to boost income, requiring a code to force people to buy a game new in order to play even if they can’t afford it and usually depend on used/borrowed games, and shutting down multiplayer servers too early.

That said, there are quite a few companies—some mentioned above—who are just as eligible for such a title…if not more so. But with over 75% of the votes cast, EA won their second consecutive title overwhelmingly.

Do you agree with Electronic Arts being named Worst Company in America for the second year in a row, or should someone else have been shamed with that dishonor?
