The oil spill is bad, but then it was an accident. If compared to the dodgy servers of Sim City then the oil spill company wins

However EAs way of abusing DLC and nickle and diming in the games is completely intentional, and takes more money off people than is really necessary.

So you believe EA is worse than Bank of America? dodge servers of Simcity and them nickle and diming, crappy ending of ME3.. is more serious than people getting homeless?

Just curious.

That is bad enough in reality seeing as they live on their customers, but at the same time why should they care about that rating when their revenue says something completley different. As a game publisher they have few (if any) equals and that is a fact.

Some numbers

 

Battlefield 3 had sold 8 million copies

The Sims 3 was an instant success, selling 1.4 million copies in its first week

Crysis 2 has now sold in three million copies worldwide,

 

 

 

So why on earth would they care about that award as it obviosly did not really effect their day to day biz. Not saying they should take steps to enghance their trademark, beczuse it sorly needs it but i feel that the smugness is sort of validated.

 They have some successes but they piss away huge sums of money and good will. They don't even make good return for their stockholders and that's the worst  thing a Corporation can do.  Also the much reviled Diablo 3 sold 12 million as of December last year so those games don't stand out much. They're big but not really that successful.

Let em put a slave ring thru u're nose u're prob not going to like where they're taking you. Think.

And this is it right here.  The ONLY complaint about EA is Sim City's servers and a very vague "they make crappy games."  And EA doesn't make games to my knowledge.  It is a business company that hires game makers.

 

*** I quoted some one talking about Sim City but my post messed up so maybe they edited at the same time I posted.

There's alot worse that has happened than some company ripping off players and making bad games.  Look at the big parent companies like pharmaceutical parent companies (there's alot of them), GE and J&J.  At least EA hasn't killed or maimed anyone (that I know of).

None of these operations come close to other's outside of the gaming industry.



should expand that choice to US based branches of companies...

I don't think they'd deserve it for their MMOs this year. However when it comes to Simcity, they never listened to their customers and ended up doing everything wrong. The core design is wrong to fit their "always-online" requirement (which adds no value to the gameplay whatsoever)... Metascore of 65/100 (factoring in fake review websites like eurogamer) and user score of 1.9/10 is the way to go to reach such award.

For people who live sheltered lives and never had to face any real problems, a bad video game is worse thing that can ever happen to them.

Here is a thought we can not conrol how banks make people homeless but we can control are entertainment vale for the dollar and if we feel a company like EA is rubbish why would any smart gamer pay hard earn money to entertain themself with rubbish?

Not saying two wrongs make a right. Just saying that if you can control something then do it and maybe enough of us gamers feel that EA is a bad company just maybe but I doubt it EA may acualy refect on what it was like to make games for pure entertainment and not just about the all mighty dollar.

True I supposed, I guess killing and maiming thousands of people isn't so bad when in a game you can kill millions :)

As i said, they can be better but i was just pointing out that even with that so called black mark on their record they sold games like no tomorrow..(they have been called the worst company long before it was made "official"). So i can understadn why they don't care all that much.

 

Not as i said above they really need to work on the fact that they have some of the most angry customers because that will become a problem in the future.. Especially when it comes to launching new franchises

This have been a good conversation

The DLC is so small charges that it does not seem much at the time, but if people get carried away, and not careful, it all adds up eating away at your savings, and can also lead to homelessness, epsecially if you then lose your job.

How anyone could possibly think a company that sells an entertainment product, something completely, utterly, and totally optional, something that would effect your life not in the least if you never bought one of their products, to even suggest such a company could be the "worst company in America"...

The very notion is so absurd, so utterly, mind-bogglingly stupid, as to bugger the imagination.

The level of whiny arsed narcissism required to think not getting your Sims3 fix on launch day comes anywhere near the level of companies that price fix foods, extend wars for profit, or manipulate people out of their homes and life savings -- things that, unlike whether or not you got to sit on your arse and enjoy a video game on time, actually fucking matter -- is hard for me to even imagine existing.

That this is even a question is a testament to every sad gamer stereotype there ever was. It's embarrassing that anyone even had the gal to think this warrants discussion, and the only redeeming feature is that at least there seems to be a fair number of people who recognize that.

Still no different, the smart people just simply go to a Bank that is more trustworthy. With MMOs you go play a MMO with a better cash shop, that does not sell parts of the UI or puts cash shop spending into a rep grind which encourages spending. However because these companies are high profile, people get duped by them

Intreasting point. The artical came from Forbes a well respected publication of society. With that being said It is a a undisbuted fact that the gaming indrustry is one of the highest if not the highest money making indrustries in America. So if EA is a big repersentation of our entertainment, then why would it be as to we the consumer should feel embarrassed to have a legit discussion on the topic of poor costumer satifaction.

If you get treated poorly as a coustomer does it make you feel good?

My response to that is simple Bp paid for their mistake and while it was a huge mistake it still was a one time thing. Madden a game EA makes every year has been in my opinion  going down hill for the last 6 or 7 years the first year it was on the 360 it was a shell of a game I felt rippied off. Thats just one game where EA constantly drops the ball you can look at dragon age 2 or having to deal with origin just to play a pc game. They dont own up to their mistakes and try and fix the problem they just try and shout you down.

How anyone could possibly think a company that sells an entertainment product, something completely, utterly, and totally optional, something that would effect your life not in the least if you never bought one of their products, to even suggest such a company could be the "worst company in America"...

The very notion is so absurd, so utterly, mind-bogglingly stupid, as to bugger the imagination.

The level of whiny arsed narcissism required to think not getting your Sims3 fix on launch day comes anywhere near the level of companies that price fix foods, extend wars for profit, or manipulate people out of their homes and life savings -- things that, unlike whether or not you got to sit on your arse and enjoy a video game on time, actually fucking matter -- is hard for me to even imagine existing.

That this is even a question is a testament to every sad gamer stereotype there ever was. It's embarrassing that anyone even had the gal to think this warrants discussion, and the only redeeming feature is that at least there seems to be a fair number of people who recognize that.

Intreasting point. The artical came from Forbes a well respected publication of society. With that being said It is a a undisbuted fact that the gaming indrustry is one of the highest if not the highest money making indrustries in America. So if EA is a big repersentation of our entertainment, then why would it be as to we the consumer should feel embarrassed to have a legit discussion on the topic of poor costumer satifaction.

If you get treated poorly as a costomer does it make you feel good?

There is difference between discussing how bad a game company is but it is totally other to declare it as a worst company in America when banks are robbing people left and fright and so many are losing their jobs and homes.

I also think EA is bad when it comes to gaming but do i give them priority over the shit storm that is going on in the country? nope.

I have an easy rank system for just gaming companies.

Worst=Hasbro....this is not even clsoe,they are miles ahead of the pack.

EA=second worst

NCSOFT=3rd worst

Frogster=4th worst

I cannot even think of a 5th worst,it shows how far above the pack these four are.

None of these operations come close to other's outside of the gaming industry.

How is NCSoft and Frogster on that list?!?

Is NCSoft there because of Tabula Rasa?!? As a company they are fine.

As for Frogster, dont get that one either. They are a F2P company, they dont hide the fact their games are average or that they make their money on micro-transactions.

EA tries to hide it all, uses smoke and mirrors, outright lies and even tries to hide things from their investors.
