    I found this amusing:

    The Consumerist have been running a series of 1-on-1 polls to find out what people think is the worst company in america (as of 2012).
    Does EA deserve this?


    Who's going to get first place?

    AT&T is beyond a shadow of a doubt going to "win" this title. XD

    EA is...ok. Certainly better than Walmart and AT&T in my book, albeit not by much.

    What happened to me was that everyone kept bugging me to make one and stuff..
    Now they ask why I even have it since I never log on.

    EA is much more than that, the treat customers like shit, giving us DLC at day one and shutting down servers, they've killed of a number of developer studios, etc.

    Oh and Origin. Piss poor digital distribution and piss poor customer service, you never really know when you'll be banned from Origin and your games.

    I don't know what people hate EA for. Years ago, they were horrible, but they drastically changed and have actually been doing good. Compared to Comcast and AT&T, EA is faaar from the worst company in America.

    I personally have no problems at all with EA. Or the other three either!

    Where the fuck is Activision?
    Were the omitted for being the clear unrivaled victor?

    Otherwise Walmart would get my vote. They suck here too.

    Activision is fairly better than Walmart. It should be somewhere behind. Not a front runner.

    I gotta ask, since I choose not to follow the news. Why is Bank of America so bad?
