    I think EA, closely followed by SOE.  But there are just so many to choose from.

    One is a publisher, the other is a Developer.....many folks in this thread are confused between the meaning of publisher vs developer...

    One "creates" the game...the other ships it out the door

    For an earlier COD reference...Activation didn't make the game...infinity ward did...

    Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) is a game development and game publishing division of Sony.

    Fresh from der Wikipedia. Who is confused now?

    Also, Treyarch and Sledgehammer games make CoD now. Where were you when Infinity Ward was dismantled after CoD4:MW2 and sued Activision for bonuses they never got?

    I think the person confused is the person that thinks the above quote means they have published a game in the last 10 years that would incite calling them "worst publisher"......did Field Commander on the PSP get you that mad?....derpdy derp....

    For example...."From Der Wikipedia page":

    DCUO

    Developer(s) Sony Online Entertainment
    Publisher(s) Sony Computer Entertainment
    WB Games

    SWG

    Developer(s) Sony Online Entertainment (North America)
    Publisher(s) LucasArts

    My point still stands...and stands strong....

    And regarding CoD..... did I say CoD MW3/Black ops was made by infinity ward? Does what you pointed out even go agasint my point that Activision did not make CoD? No?...then why even "argue" it....

    The Derp is strong with this one......

    Blizzard, simply because they are the most dangerous. They literally use there name and IP's to sell shit product.

    But what makes them so bad is how far they have fallen, and how many people still hold them in high regard.

    If you have been around for a while it has been a lot like watching something turn slowly evil. Once one of the companys that could do no wrong they now are out for crash grabs at every turn and they don't even put the effort in. The fact that they still have so many people holding them in high regard is what makes them simply the worst. 

    Yeah EA and NCSoft are horrible. But people know they are horrible. They know that and thus buy with caution, Blizzard has actually befriended it's player base then slowly poisoned them for the love of money. At least EA spits in my face and doesn't try to catch me from behind, Blizzard is the sneaky bad guy.

    Luckily we still have Valve, whose biggest transgression is not coming out with games fast enough lol. You can really tell they care about the games they make and they are not trying to squeeze every penny out of there customers for the short term rush. I mean look at the orange box, best value I have ever gotten out of a game. The half life series...amazing. Counter-Strike. They give me hope that some companys still care about the consumer.

     

    @#$! you Blizzard, sneaky bastards.

    I'm gonna break the mold here by saying "Bigpoint" is the worst in the world. (They are both developers and publishers) Closely followed by EA of course.

    To find an intelligent person in a PUG is not that rare, but to find a PUG made up of "all" intelligent people is one of the rarest phenomenons in the known universe.

    EA and now blizzard. Gpotato is pretty bad as well.

    Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

    A. Proven right (if something bad happens)

    or

    B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

    Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

    Its not that valve wants to make great games, they have all the revenue from steam, so they don't really.. have to. To put a game on steam valve gets 30% of what the game sells for plus a licesening (I can never spell this damn word) fee I believe.

    Between those companies, they have destroyed more games than produced good games which is a staggering feat.

    If you are talking about the so called AAA mmorpgs publisher it is EA hands down..

    These guys try to approach selling subbed boxes like they are FPS or B2Ps and their devs are always either short on content or provide an unacceptable gaming experience..

    EA is all false manufactured hype all the time which leads to major disappointment..

    Playing GW2..

    why?  they make the most money by an enormous margin, yet they dont put the money back in to the game.    WoW expansions should be Kunark sized and yearly.  At least when other companies put out cahs shops on top of sub models, you can believe the money gets at least partially put back into the game.  But with WoW?  I have no clue where that money goes, but it sure isnt to WoW's development.  Games like Rift and EQ2 that have less than 10% of WoW's NA/EU subs put out more content than WoW.  Every company is in it to make money.  Blizzard is the one company that I can for 100% certain say is abnormally greedy.

     

     

    Ive been saying this for years. Look at the price of Cata xpac its still 39.99 on the blizz store. How is this game still costing full price when less then two months away their new xpac is releasing. Battlechest with just WoW and BC is 19.99 really 19.99 that should just be FREE. WoTLK 19.99 REALLY !!! Blizzard is greedy and their greed shows.

    SoE 2nd because they treat their games like they are greedy yet dont get the funds cuz they are mental. Why would u release Vanguard when it couldnt even play on the minimum settings OR the recommended ones aswell. I forked over 1k to upgrade my computer for just 10 more FPS that feb after launch.

    EA Games, because they destroyed Command and Conquer after acquiring Westwood studios. I will never forgive their transgression.

    Although EA and Activision are pretty close when it comes to pure evilness EA stands above the rest just from the pure volume of great game developers and IPs they have bought up and destroyed. The IPs they have buried have been the lucky ones because usually when they decide to actually produce games from IPs that they've aquired it is usually pure desecration they heap apon those great games of the past. They are the Grim Reaper of game publishers.
