Re: EA is the 'Worst Company In America'

This wasn't a Customer Satisfaction poll. The topic was "worst company in the world" and the internet responded with its typical hyperbole.

How EA beats out companies like Comcast or Verizon - companies that knowingly does (and has been proven to do) shady **** worse than this. Not to mention how completely helpless their customer service typically is.

I hate that dang internet. Only people that get on it are gamers---and EA gamers at that.

I'd vote for EA before I voted for Verizon or Comcast. I'm pleased with my services from both of those, and any time I've had to call or deal with people from them they've been awesome. Maybe I'm just lucky.

I've had Verizon for 10 years and I've never really had a problem with them. Although I think that they're "sign two year agreements or pay double for a new phone" is worse than EA's Online Pass stuff.

Personally, THQ is worse than EA in my opinion. At least we don't have to pay to create a player and rate them how we want.

Also (customer service wise) Avis Flowers did me a lot dirtier than EA ever has. My order was more expensive than any video game too. However, I do not think that they're the worst company in America.

You don't have to. Which Tariq explained. I don't care about online gaming, either and just like you I want that full blown out Franchise Mode.

It's sad that some of us are encouraging EA to roll its eyes at people who want value for their money. An entertainment company doesn't get to be bad just because it's not a health care provider, bank, or airline.

For the rest of the "dollars > everything" crowd, sales numbers don't mean a company is making customers happy. They mean instead that a company is making good economic decisions. Sometimes people eat at the closest restaurant, even if it's bad. Sometimes people watch the latest CSI spinoff or go out to see another Transformers sequel, just to have something to do. Uninspired entertainment can obviously sell, but should it? Why shout people down when they ask for something better?
But in a way it does. It's like bashing your girlfriend/wife constantly and moaning about how unhappy you are with her but you're STILL with her. If people don't buy the games, it'll speak volumes. I'm sorry, but I'm not buying something that I'm not happy with.

If she's the only girl on the planet you might.

If that's all you're getting out of this. Then you are just completely missing the boat.
