Not a hater or lover of EA, but nonetheless this was an interesting read, insofar as it show just how much influence gamers can collectively have on actual company perception and performance. 

 

http://venturebeat.com/2013/04/05/ea-executive-peter-moore-responds-to-worst-company-in-america-tournament/

 

Keep in mind that this is not a vote for 'the worst GAMING company, but rather for the worst company overall. I think that Mr. Moore has properly responded to this 'nomination', choosing to view it as a challenge instead of a barrier.   What is your opinion?

I actually really liked his response.

Showed proper respect, but they're not just taking it sitting down either.

Actually really, really well played response.

People certainly love to hate on EA - but they have some of the biggest franchises on the planet with millions of happy gamers that could give two shits about any of the controversy.

Ask a Madden or Fifa fan lol

FIFA 13 sold over 12 million units by the end of 2012.

All EA does is create new franchises and then screw them up. They never fix issues. When they buy a competitor, they do the same thing to their franchises. The reason is simple, get people to like the new franchise, then invest as little money as possible into it once it has been established. It is all about profit, not the consumer.

If we fail to change the things of today, they will become the lucid nighmares of tommorrow.

Should we ask the Wii players that purchased FIFA 13?

I will never buy another EA game except out of the $5 bargan bin. I also think they are one of, if not the worst game company out there....but... EA vrs beer was a meaningless vote.

If EA really does take this msg and changes how they treat customers and make games good on them, but I doubt it will do or mean anything.

People are like cats. When they die, you get a new one.

I don't agree with all of EA's choices but I'd hardly say they are the worst game company in the NA. What about Nexon? There are indeed worse companies...

....yes a well thought of responce, not sure what the trolls here will make of it. Peep have to understand EA is the publisher not always the game producer or designer.

....Being Banned from MMORPG's forums since 2010, for Trolling the Trolls!!!

I really have no hate for EA. I'm currently subscribed to TOR and enjoying very much. I don't really "hate" any game companies. They make video games... some people around here just take this shit waaaaaaaay too seriously. 

 

I'm glad to see they responded through. They could have just ignored the whole thing.

Um who cares?We've seen this kind of response and promises to improve from EA before.It's just PR white noise whilst they carry on as usual.

Has Nexon rushed games out for a cash grab? ruined franchises? ruined developers? is well known for crappy customer service and a gradual rise in customer disatisfaction? has Nexon got a P2P MMO which shifted to F2P in under a year and shat on anyone who bought and subbed for the game but which did not have a active sub for the whole of the P2P run of the game?

 

Sorry dude but you need to get real if you think EA isn't currently the worse gaming company in existence for the amount of money it has and the clout. Activision and a slew of others come up behind it but make no mistake there's no worse a company than EA (for christ sake it's trying to skin the idea of F2P alive and plaster it over it's craptastic ideas of P2W and claim it is a F2P system, even SOE had a better initial F2P system).

The only way EA will improve is if it catches on fire and burns.

I don't particularly care whether EA is a good company or not.

Dead Space 3 is a fun game (even if i have to ignore the RMT). I would have played it whether EA is the greatest company on earth, or the worst.

When EA messes up they at least do things like give you other games for free. Nexon's game have major security problems to the point where one of their games (Mabinogi) was able to be hacked by a group of players and then those group of players preceeded to delete the codes that made up other player's characters and wipe them off the face of the game. This happened two years ago and Nexons still hasn't gotten to fixing it completely. 

 

Also many of the players who were known to have done this weren't even banned and are still allowed to roam freely ingame. So sorry, but yes, I'll have to disagree with you, Nexon is way worse. You just don't see them making headlines when they make screw-ups like these for some reason.

Now while I have no real beef with EA I know lots of people do.

 

Companies basically in this day and age get one chance and if you muck it up well you can expect people are gonna hold it over you for decades to come......

Actually its totally the opposite.  Because of the way of major monopolies and mega corp umbrellas.  Companies have the chance to screw up hundreds of times and still be around.  Are you honestly suggesting that EA has only made one mistake in their company history?

 

Think of companies like Exxon or BP, major mistakes huge impacts and still around with major profits.  How are banks doing after the mortgage crisis?  How many recalls has Johnson & Johnson had in the last decade?  Todays companys hold so much power/money/influence including EA that even a long string of major disasters and they can be only mildly effected.  This is probably one of the biggest problems with the rise of mega corps and the lack of choice (or true capitalism).

One thing, granted a big one but EA is a freaking beast when it comes to it and while I agree Nexon is in the wrong with what they did, even as a long time on/off player of Mabinogi I can't say I care all that much because it's a F2P game and I somehow doubt Nexon didn't reimburse people if those people lost money via those hacks. Compare this to sodomizing the F2P model for a quick buck, screwing people over with Day one DLC, screwing people over with P2P->F2P transitions, forcing games out too soon to ride a wave (Dragon Age 2), forcing Always on DRM for monetary (microstransaction) reasons and I can hardly say Nexon is worse, perhaps the reason you don't see them making headlines is because you blow things out of proportions because you're one of the parties involved?

Based on his responses EA will be voted the worst company next year too.

Really? Even SIMCITY, with all the bad press, sold like more the 1M copies in the first week.

I don't think the market is punishing EA by not buying its stuff.
