Absolutely disgusting to have such established greed amongst humanity.

Here is the problem with your post, they are still the biggest game company out there. Everything they sell is #1 for weeks, sometimes months. You can still be one of the worst companies in the world but fail misserably at customer service(ie apple) and look bad. There games are good, people just expect more.

Because EA has actually ruined lives and has a huge negative effect on this country. rolleyes.gif

Bank Of America should have "won." It seems to me like this poll was done by a bunch of raging nerds that don't care for anyone outside of their lives.

I know the homeowners won in this case, but there have been others where they haven't been so lucky.

I'm not saying EA doesn't do shady things, but it's all trivial compared to what Bank Of America has pulled and other companies as well. It's the freaking game industry; It shouldn't have that much of an effect on peoples' lives.

Well it's not like it was an official poll or something carried out by a regulated or official company.

It's a poll on a blog. Nothing more, nothing less.

Obvious, with the aggressive way of gouging consumers money for DLC, and etc.

 

How many more great game developer get screw over by EA then we take on the problem and eat it.

GameSpot, EA senior director of corporate communications John Reseburg said, "We're sure that bank presidents, oil, tobacco, and weapons companies are all relieved they weren't on the list this year. We’re going to continue making award-winning games and services played by more than 300 million people worldwide."

I do wonder how much of an effect ME3 had on these results. Especially to have them beat a bank. Bank of America at that.

Totally agree with you on the banks and that they should of won, but by the gods you love EA.

Yeah, it really doesn't mean anything. Probably why EA responded the way they did. Just laughed it off and rolled their eyes.
