EA in the running for “Worst Company in America” for the second year in a row

For those who didn’t know, Electronic Arts, or more commonly known as EA and as the home of the Battlefield, FIFA and Mass Effect franchises, have been voted as the “Worst Company in America” last year by The Consumerist. 

Now, before you go get pitchforks and aim it at the site, keep in mind that the nominees and winners are voted on by readers. Last year, EA “won” the award due to the overwhelming negativity BioWare’s Mass Effect 3 received from its highly-controversial ending.

For some reason, which I attribute mostly to the on-going SimCity debacle, EA has been nominated once more. It’s worth noting that no one has collected the “Golden Poo” twice in a year, but seeing as EA is in a bit of disarray right now without a proper CEO, then there is a chance they could be the first.

However, it’s not all gloom-and-doom for EA, though. Joining them in the running are noteworthy (and I assume loved) companies such as Google and Apple. Heck, even Microsoft is on that list, too, so it’s really not that bad, right?

Do you think EA deserves to “win” this award twice or are people overreacting once again?
