Let’s face it; EA’s reputation isn’t exactly shining at this point. Evidence of this can be seen in a recent user-driven contest bracket run by Consumerist.com in order to determine what is America’s worst company. EA is now in the top 4 of the bracket, a significant achievement despite its negative implications.
So far, EA has won against Sony, Comcast, and Best Buy. Best Buy won against Target, and Comcast has usurped both DirectTV and Time Warner Cable. EA is now set to compete against AT&T, and if it wins it will have the chance to succeed either Walmart or Bank of America, who each won against the likes of Gamestop, Paypal, Ticketmaster, Citibank, and others.
What do you guys think? Do EA really deserve this much hate, or are they being rightfully scorned?
