EA is the Worst Company in America
Sure that BF3 hasn't helped them either...
Are people so selfish now that they're more concerned about the fictional ending of a completely non-essential luxury item than actions which affect the well-being of other people in the world? What a sad world we inhabit
Or maybe it is that you have to install Origin to play new titles.
That customer support is poor (have you seen some of the logs).
Day 1 DLC with Mass Effect.
Sim City will be Origin Only and again day 1 DLC.
I hardly play games any more but the author of this article is even more out of touch than I.
Agree not the worst company and emo rage from the gaming crowd, but the share price tells you it is not a company going in the correct direction.
I initially thought yeah stick it to the man, stuff you EA!
Then I saw Bulletstorm for £3.75 on steam, bought it and on loading saw the big EA logo... oops.

I'll never get my head around why people feel the need to defend these companies who are guilty of every anti-consumer act possible. If you don't like it that they got voted worst company then go and start your own "best company" award and vote for them in that. That's just as absurd as you telling us not to play their games when they basically own the entire industry.
They still have your money, they'll get over it.
Who's defending them? People are, quite rightly, pointing out shoddy games are not even in the same league as what some companies get away with.
That's certainly no excuse and to clarify, I think EA are a bunch of scumbags, but if people want to boycott them then do so, saying "they own the market" and "what else am I supposed to do?" is just an excuse so people can carry on playing games and pretend to be doing something about it.
A shining example of what people should be doing is Saracen, he doesn't buy a LOT of games for reasons like this & I applaud that, I certainly don't have the willpower to avoid a game I think I'll love, if even half of the folk who act outraged did that then EA would sit up and take notice, a piddly little 'worst company' award that will blow over soon enough is not going to bother them while people are still buying their games in droves
Look at the names on that list that are gone. Bought out to be shut down so as not to be competition. This "award" is not due to ME3, it's due to years of abusing the industry and consumers and it's getting worse.
The only difference between people like you and others like me is, they haven't reached your limit. Yet. You sound a lot like my best mate who up till the ME3 prothean DLC was happily buying their games - that was the final straw for him. What will your limit be? Trust me you'll find out one day because it's you who is letting them push further.
Saw this post on kotaku
Well sure, Bank of America took muh house, but Mass Effect 3's ending didn't reflect my choices!
@ Iron Sights
That sums up my thoughts on the award. I don't care how bad EA is, it's not possible for them to be worse than the banks.
From your posts you haven't explicitly said whether you still do/don't buy their games, although from reading between the lines I'd say you do (?)
My limit may well be reached at some point but at least I'm being honest and not slating them in one breath while still buying their games like a lot of people (maybe not you, you haven't said yet)
As for my gaming habits, without knowing me, or my purchase history, you're making a lot of asumptions. EA have certainly not made a lot of money from me, ever, in fact I enjoy grabbing free/<£5 (that should be waaay more) games from the EA store when they have their frequent voucher/reduction/glitch days.
That said I do have to reiterate my point, they are by no means the 'worst' company in the USA, there are far more dodgy/backroom dealing/illegal activities going on but those companies happen to not make video games which for some reason people don't seem so vocal about (?)
