Worst Company Award Reflects Badly on Gamers, not EA

Ed Smith of IBTimes writes: "Oh come off it, seriously. EA the worst company in America? Are you sure? What about the companies that makes bombs and guns and that pizza with hotdog sausages in the crust? I'm pretty sure they're all worse than Electronic Arts, especially when they charge £17 for a medium Hawaiian.

"This reeks of gamer entitlement. In a restrained blog post, just ahead of the Consumerist poll being announced, EA COO Peter Moore said: "The complaints against us last year were our support of SOPA (not true), and that they didn't like the ending to Mass Effect 3...our audience lives on the Internet. No surprise that we drew more votes there" referencing, I think, a culture of enfranchised game players who believe it's their prerogative to have everything just so." (Culture, EA, Industry, Mass Effect 3, Peter Moore)
