    Considering the competitors in this competition this is a rather bizzare choice.

    That's what they probably get for the money milking franchises like Madden, NFL, Tiger Woods, FIFA, ..... Minimal effort for the maximum profit, disgusting if you ask me. They just have a monopoly, can't believe those franchises keep selling like hotcakes.

    Whoever voted for EA is an absolute moron who knows nothing about the other companies or the ones that were missing from this piss poor poll.

    Sure other companies do more damage and are also rather bad but EA just doesn't give a fuck ignoring long time fans, and some other companies after enough criticism started to crack and admit they are wrong but EA just keeps going on completely ignoring everyones opinion. Also looking at the industry surrounding them they are a lot worse than most the competition while with banks, isp's and oil corporations the bad behavior is just industry standard however bad that may be. I also think giving such a reward to a company like EA is more of a statement than just giving it to a bank as everyone knows how they are while a lot of people may not think the same about a game publisher.

    In short although I do think that they are not the worst company in terms of damage I do think they deserve the award.

    My goodness, truthfuly EA is the worst of the lot! How dare they increase their revenue and release games which people buy as if they were the cure for cancer!

    Considering the poll introduces biases by appealing more to people who actually would participate in these things (low aged gamers) I'm not surprised EA won. But that's the whole reason for voting, if everyone knew everything about every little things with the world, votes would be pointless because you only need one person to make a decision. In conclusion, everyone who votes doesn't need to know everything about every little company and there's nothing wrong with that.

    I believe this isn't a competition in financial sucky-ness, they would have fact based results otherwise. I think it's about moral sucky-ness, which is opinion based.

    Perhaps, but finances are directly connected to how the customers feel about the company. If people truly hate EA then why do they buy games published or developed by EA at an increasing rate? :)

    I think it's safe to say that EA deserves it more so then any other gaming business. As a company, they have no respect for the consumers and have gone out of their way to nickel and dime gamers heavily quite recently, and it's unacceptable. Tack on the whole Origin/Steam debacle, which really isn't going to prove their point and consumers will continue to boycott buying their products for the PC and inevitably they will just stop making games for the PC and kill off a segment of their profit margin in the process. It seems American corporations as a whole, don't care about the people they work for and represent, and all of them deserve to be labelled as the Worst Companies in America.

    It's the corporate greed and lack of respect for the people who keep them in business, that makes them do these things and I wish consumers as a whole would step up and just say no and stop buying their products period. I wish people would stop crying about all the bullshit that EA has done over the last couple of years and just stand up and say that we aren't going to take it anymore. Why do you think I refuse to buy EA products? Because they nickel and dime consumers for stuff that should be provided with the game, bonus content, expansion packs and things like that should be created after the fact and sold as such. I won't support anyone who thinks it's acceptable to have day one DLC even though it's in the bloody package, why should I pay for content that's already available to me?

    Just so you know, there were persistent efforts on the part of /v/ to get this result.
