And speak for yourself. I haven't purchased an EA game since BC2, (BF3 was gifted to me) and I don't see myself giving them any money for quite some time.

How would Apple get worst company? For starters I hate Apple more than anyone on this forum, but you have to be an idiot if you don't think Apple has good customer service.

Hatred runs deeply and irrationally for a lot of these members. I just block them and move on.

Honestly, does this surprise any of you? They lock you into using their platform, which hogs ram and crashes, make people switch platforms after activating it on steam, and have terrible backups/backup manager.

This all is not mentioning they have TWO DIFFERENT FRIENDING SYSTEMS. One in-game, and out-of-game. If you ask me, this is all retarded.

Well.. I'm not sure about the whole locked into using their platform thing. I mean.. I've never felt the need to buy an EA game and use Origin. Origin has never used more memory than Steam and I've never experience said crashing either. I can't comment on the next two things since I haven't bought a game I needed to activate on Steam first or have used the backup manager. Never used origin's friend system either, since I have just about every other way to contact my friends if I want to play with them.

Anyway.. how does any of this affect your life? Aside from making playing a few games a little less convenient.. how does it compare to companies and corporations that actually cause real world problems? Just kinda shows that the people who made and voted in this poll have their priorities pretty out of whack.

Lol. This is a forum of gamers. Pretty sure our priorities are fine.
