No, that would go to Monsantos or Haliburton. EA is the worst gaming company though.

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.

Those other things does not affect (most of) the people who voted so hence why they dont care. I dont agree with it, but I am not surprised and I dont understand why you are either. Do you think the world is a fair place where everyone is holding hands and care about other people?

If so you need to wake up and smell the coffee. People are mostly selfish, they dont give a crap about things that does not directly affect them.

The real tragedy of this is that games STILL give them so much money.  Hell they line up for it, and even act suprised with they get cheated.

That is another thing though, if you do not know of other bad companies then you will only vote for the company that you know was bad, and if they are not in a list to vote then they you can not vote for them!

At least there are a few of us that can manage to keep things in perspective here. Forbe's 'award' amounts to the movie's equivalent of the Razzie. It is done, in jest no less, to appease the superficial masses that need a red herring to rally against. While keeping Forbes out of the crosshairs of truly terrible companies that would have lawyers all over their asses for any number of things. I mean who really cares about the laughable stink a bunch of whining 'kids' would raise about their precious video games when Forbes, EA and millions of others know they will continue to buy them anyway?

 

And the results of this poll so far proves it to me beyond a shadow of a doubt. Keep rallying against those video games. While the water that you drink, the food that you eat, the air that you breath, the everyday products that you use and the thousands of companies that you deal with every day slow erode your very existence. I mean it maybe true that you cannot really change anything when it comes to these big corporations. But the most important thing you can change doesn't require you to look beyond yourself anyway, does it?  Perspective people, perspective.

I know right?  Hard to believe people are so oblivious to what goes on in the world right in front of them.

While reality slowly kills them, they can kill in a videos game to feel much better! Perspective lesson number one: 

Escaping reality is a illusion. It used by those that lack the strength to deal with that reality. There is no 'real' escape from the inevitability of reality. That's the reason it's called reality in the first place.

 

With children the lack of knowledge that they contain often surfaces as innocence. It's cute. They know no better until taught otherwise. With adults the lack of knowledge that they contain surfaces as ignorance. It is not so cute. They have the means to self educate but most often refuse to do so. That is the reality of this poll. And if they choose to escape it, so be it.

Ive note that you play UO, FFXI and WoW if EA was behind these games would they be as good as they still are today?

Point being this is not a thread about horrible world conditions but a thread about EA and how well do people and for this matter gamers feel about EA.

I do not know the answer to that. Although EA did publish UO at the time I was playing, I was never aware of the "evils" of EA. Their hand in UO never interfered with my enjoyment of UO. I do recall the '3d' expansion being a horrible mess that I tried but eventually went back to the 2d client.

 

And no you're right, this thread is not about the horrible world conditions. That's why I never mentioned that. And yes, this thread is about how people and gamers feel EA is THE worst company in AMERICA. I responded and gave my reason why I do not feel that way. And now I'm simply expanding on why other gamers may feel EA is THE worst company in AMERICA. Especially with all the other things that effect them in the scope of their own lives.

I still say SOE is worse than EA, at least EA never starts with a good game then ruins it.  EA at least changes thier upper management when things go bad....SOE has had the same monarchy since the begining....

 

Let's release an expansion, even though we've been working on changing how the entire game works...we'll release that for free next week...omg that's genius!

 

Edit:  A Month later:  Even though more than half our subscribers just left because we just bent them over.  We're going to stick with what we changed because we know what's best for everyone...

 

Several years later:  Even though several years ago we alienated pretty much any of our original playerbase, we still can't be wrong, people are just dumb and don't know what they're missing...I guess we can just shut the game down.

It fucking kills me that people are more worried about their video games than shit like oil spills and genetically modified food. Maybe we should look at companies like ChikFilA who think it's okay to deny civil rights to certain groups of people?

Oh boo hoo, EA did terrible things to SimCity and Star Wars. They're the worstest ever!  

Even entertaining the idea that EA is the worst company in America probably means you need to turn off your computer and go outside and get a little real life experience.

Chik-Fil-A has the right to refuse service to anyone...that's a right all businesses have.  I don't agree with them, but I didn't know we lived in a country where if you didn't go with what the majority thinks, you'll be stoned to death.  It's that kind of mentality that allows totalitarianism and dictatorships to flourish.

That's an interesting observation.
