Worst general COMPANY in America?  I'd have to say Exxon and Bank of America would get that award.  As far as gaming companies go however, EA definitely has a top ranking position.

I think all companies have problems.  EA has a lot of issues because they are larger than most gaming companies, but they do a lot of good things as well.  I personally enjoy most of the EA products I have purchased including the new sim city.  What I am getting tired of is the many gamers that don't have patience and whine and cry when a lot of these games launch with issues. Usually, if you wait like 1 week or so, the company who makes the game will usually iron things out.   Sometimes they never fix the game, but it is just a game.  People need to get over it and get a life.

Well, when it comes to game companies EA is at the top of my list for worst company in America. As a matter of fact, their interview from a day ago simply firms up my opinion of them and displays exactly what they think of us:

 

EA Admits It “Can Do Better” But Blames Worst Company Success On Homophobes And Whiny Madden Fans

 

No one has reasonable gripes right? Everyone speaking against them are homophobes, whiny losers, racist, and every other horrible thing you can think of.  They can't defend their business practices so go Ad hominem...

 

MS started to do that a day ago too over the 720 always on DRM fiasco.

While they are not (very) active as global destroyer they are one of the worse company's on earth when it comes to consumer deception, scamming, lies, tax evasions ( they dont pay mutch tax at all deu to offshore acounts and that while they do charge everyone for their local tax rates (eu/vs) ..what they dont pay)

I have been keeping a steady eye on the poll. Intreasting enough from our comunity only 20% more voted yes EA is the worst company in America. To be honest its been a 60/40 vote and that is telling me that with that kind of margin and yes this is not a official poll or anything like that. But more or less with it being a honest gaming poll gamers on this site at least 40 % of them are still willig to support EA one way or anouther.

I think of the fact that I and all of my gaming buddies would be playing Dark Age of Camelot again - had EA allowed for the dev team at Mythic to produce Origins server.  Some whispered that the fear was that even more players would be pulled from the drowning Warhammer title.

 

Regardless, you have years of loyal followers and dedicated gamers that had a love affair with Dark Age above all other mmorpgs.  And after all these years, we cannot have Origins?  Frustrating...especially now when even the most uninformed executive at EA should consider Origins due to the sudden stir over CU and ESO.  Perhaps aliens run some of these companies - it's the only explanation.

Official, unofficial, any poll who puts EA as the worst company in America is wrong, and its voters myopic.  And I don't support EA simply because I believe that fact.  You have companies that ruin lives vs. a company who ruined the ending of a game series.

NO. It isn't wrong at all. This is a GAME site where we write about all the frivilous electronic wastes of our time that we find fun in order to escape the deathly serious stuff that causes one and all to hang their heads during the day. This is a thread about what amounts to a pop culture poll on whom we feel does us wrong in such ventures. It is not a site nor thread for the serious written debate of topics relating to actual social ills costing people life and limb. Leave that for the courts to ponder. As such, EA sucks more than most anyone else and clearly so. They are even outpreformed by beer companies with untreated sewer water in their cans. This is saying something...

 

If you can't loosen up and enjoy the poll for what it is.... >.<

I already said it's one of the worst game companies, if not the worst.  But the "poll" doesn't say that.  *shrug*

EA is not the worst company in America, is all I'm saying.  OP's title is misleading and I'm not the only person who noticed.

"But it was so artistically done..." - Grand Admiral Thrawn's final words

4/06/13 8:43:14 PM#114

I just read interesing article by Peter Moore.

http://www.ea.com/news/we-can-do-better

Quote:

Are we really the “Worst Company in America?”  I’ll be the first to admit that we’ve made plenty of mistakes. These include server shut downs too early, games that didn’t meet expectations, missteps on new pricing models and most recently, severely fumbling the launch of SimCity.  We owe gamers better performance than this.

Some of these complaints are 100 percent legitimate – like all large companies we are not perfect. But others just don’t hold water:

  • Many continue to claim the Always-On function in SimCity is a DRM scheme.  It’s not.  People still want to argue about it.  We can’t be any clearer – it’s not. Period.
  • Some claim there’s no room for Origin as a competitor to Steam.  45 million registered users are proving that wrong.
  • Some people think that free-to-play games and micro-transactions are a pox on gaming.  Tens of millions more are playing and loving those games.
  • We’ve seen mailing lists that direct people to vote for EA because they disagree with the choice of the cover athlete on Madden NFL. Yes, really…
  • In the past year, we have received thousands of emails and postcards protesting against EA for allowing players to create LGBT characters in our games.  This week, we’re seeing posts on conservative web sites urging people to protest our LGBT policy by voting EA the Worst Company in America.

That last one is particularly telling.  If that’s what makes us the worst company, bring it on.  Because we're not caving on that.

We are committed to fixing our mistakes.  Over the last three weeks, 900,000 SimCity players took us up on a free game offer for their troubles.  We owed them that.  We’re constantly listening to feedback from our players, through our Customer Experience group, Twitter, this blog, or other sites.  The feedback is vital, and impacts the decisions we make.

And I tend to agree. EA is not the worst company in US...

EA Responds To Worst Company In America Contest: 'We Can Do Better'

 

Yours is a completely different declarative statement.  Besides, Forbes would be wrong if they said it anyway.  If you actually READ the article, the author says he doesn't even think EA should still be in the running, instead placing behind Carnival.

And to the poster above me, in short: nope.

Well, it validates that it's trendy to hate EA, just like it's trendy to hate WoW. You can add these two to the list with "I hate suits" and "corporations are evil".

All this tells me is that a large number of people here are slaves to vocal opinion, or more accurately...sheep.

that will be ncsoft west, killer of mmo. i understand that EA is greedy but as i have been playing their games for a very long time i can say that there is one thing they do that no other publisher does, they copyright a game not only in their name but also in the name of developer groups. this way if EA no longer wants to publish a certain game the developer can take it to other publishers and EA make deals with them and let the developers continue to do what they want to do with their life's work. i don't see any other publisher doing that these days. developers are even forced to steal their own works from publishers in some cases. i am sure you guys can appreciate it. 

i want an open world, no phasing, no instancing.i want meaningful owpvp.i want player driven economy.i want meaningful crafting.i want awesome exploration, a sense of thrill.i want ow housing with a meaningful effect on my entire gameplay experience, not just some instanced crap.i want all of these free of cost, i don't wanna pay you a cent, game devs can eat grass and continue developing game for me.
Seems like that is the current consensus of western mmo players.

The way I view most of those is that the Government and others are stepping in. Some get hit with fines, jail time, sanctions, regulations, etc. They end up having to make public appologies and compensate those they have effected. They are in many cases required to fund clean up and restoration efforts. 

On the other hand, no one is regulating companies like EA. Its just a gaming company, they are just games seems to be the mentality of many. EA and others like them get free reign to do as they please and its left up to gamers to file lawsuits and such if they feel up to it. 

They don't make public appologies, they try and pass off their failings as the fault of the consumer. They don't like to reimburse players even when they have stripped them of the right to play games they have purchased without cause. There is no one stepping in and saying "Hey, thats a bit to far. Keep it up and there will be repricussions". 

Companies blowing the tops off of mountains are being bombarded by legal battles and law makers and congressmen are being preasured to take action against them. 

Carnival is about to get hit bad because they pissed off a couple of Senators which are in talks about the 4.2mil its cost the coast guard and the navy to step in on 90 serious events. 

All these companies have people watching them and holding them accountable. 

Companies like EA don't.
