    So, what company did EA name worst company?  And what role?  Seriously....learn to English if you're going to troll, dude.

    Good for Peter Moore. Internet nerds do need to get some perspective. BP spills oil into the gulf that destroys the fish and shrimping industry for an entire state yet that is seen as nothing compared to a player's inconvienence with a video game. Yeah, I'll take that poll REAL serious.

    All the big publishers are bad tbh. not just EA. The people who run companies like EA and Activision are only interested in money, they have no geniune interest in gaming or the artistic talent it takes to make a game that will be remembered for years to come. Which is why they churn out endless, overpriced crap like CoD.

    Luckily, many of the top developers are now choosing to go indie and find their own funding on places like kickstarter and Steam greenlight. Because in the end it gives them more freedom, creativity and less politics. Which is what you need to make great games.

    Games like this one: http://www.uberent.com/pa/ ; (new RTS from the Total Annihilation devs!) would never even be considered by a publisher these days. Yet they managed to raise double the amount of money they needed to make it from kickstarter.

    the website is the consumerist.. when it comes to the poll i see it as the worst company in terms of consumer care and support.. In this case I agree with the poll in my experience.. i didn't see it as what company was the most evil or corrupt in how they effect the world or anything like that but which effected the consumer the worst and that's what I see got voted. All the stuff he mentions in that letter are horrible things companies are responsable for but directly it doesn't effect me as a consumer in terms of how I personally feel treated from said company

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    ^ This. I would think with someone in Peter Moore's stature would understand that it's based on consumerism, but then again this is EA we're talking about. 

    They will never learn.

    Good for him.  I personally love most EA games.  I really don't understand why people are so hateful towards EA.  EA has been a gaming company from the beginning.  But, everyone is entitled to thier own opinion.

    i would think so as well... but in my experience a lot of people never learn from past mistakes...

    Maybe its time for disney to buy EA and lay off the entire gaming studio like they did with LA.

    Peter Moore claims that their games are selling, but SWTOR did not reach their expectations, and Dead Space 3 did not sell as well as they hoped.

    The games are mostly good, as it is not EA who makes them, but it is the way they do DLC and the poor launch of Sim City. They have no brains for what gamers want, and just do what they think will get them the most money

    Dead Space 3 is good, although the horror aspect which made the first two great was lacking, but it was mostly the DLC that put people off, and Sim City is a great game too, but it is the online connectivity that put people off.

    It will be interesting to see what the sales of FIFA 14 will be like. They have said it is going to be more online and you will be socially connected. It sounds they are trying to make that be like Sim City, although can be offline, but will not be so great experience, and that is what EA said too.

    EA games have never been great with online.

    Good god, does he want a tissue to wipe away his little baby tears after writting this. Come on. Even if EA isn't the worst company he should, regardless, perhaps look into why people do not like them so much instead of going on a little baby rant. You would think a big-wig for a giant gaming company would have thicker skin. whatta wuss.  I just imagine an overweight, old, white guy crying over his keyboard while writing this, blaming the evil "intranetz" for all his companies woes lately. Get a grip there fella hehe.

    Consumerist is just another type of media blackmailer though, its pay up or be 'smeared'. the only ones who read their rubbish are the ones who just look for the bad anyway, their not representative in any way, just chancers chasing $$ opportunities. What they do might be morally reprehensible, but its not illegal. image

    Why is this thread even in the SWTOR forums? It's not even specific to the game. Maybe there is some friend of a friend I don't like who works there and I can start another thread about that here?

    Exactly, Peter Moore is throwing out red herrings. Not to mention the red herrings he mentions are in bed with the government contracts. We are not spending DOD funds on video games like we do for the oil industry.

    just wanted to point out that letter is most likely a gag..  i was just responding to the fact i feel the poll is based on how the average consumers have been treated by a said company and not about how a company effects the world overall

    I am laughing so hard right now. I won't say EA is the worst company, but EA do need to have a better customer support and work on patching the games.
