EA, facing off against the likes of PayPal, Bank of America and Facebook, has been voted the “worst company in America”.
A couple of days ago there were eight remaining companies in a slightly bizarre ‘competition’, with the Consumerist calling them a “rogues gallery of bad businesses from a variety of industries”.
After more than a quarter of a million votes, though, EA eventually ‘won’ through.
“After years of being ignored and relegated to steerage, game-players have voted to send a message to Electronic Arts and the gaming business as a whole: Stop treating your loyal customers like crap,” said the site.
EA beat Bank of America in the final 64% to 36%.
Presumably people didn’t like Battlefield 3’s ending. I don’t know, I can’t keep up with all this stuff anymore. I’m too old. Pass me my Kempston.
