EA and Sony in running for Worst Company In America
Posted on March 14, 2012 by Eduardo

UPDATE: Looks like EA easily won it with a whopping 80.9% of the vote.  They move on to Round 2 to take on perennial contender Best Buy.

Every year at about this time, The Consumerist does its "Worst Company in America" poll, which pits 32 of the most-loathed companies (according to the site's readers at least) against each other in a battle to the worst.

The first bracket puts two perennial thorn-in-gamer's sides against each other: Electronic Arts and Sony.  From the article:

"EA has spent much of the last decade cultivating a bad name for itself among millions of game-buying consumers. Aside from its reputation for spoiling the good names of all the companies it acquires (and EA has acquired a lot of companies), it has played a pivotal role in the fact that video games continue to be expensive while the cost for many other home entertainment media has dropped."

as for Sony...

"It is indeed the hacking of millions of Sony PlayStation Network accounts and subsequent three-week long network outage that earned the electronics giant a spot in this year's tournament."

What do you think of Elder Scrolls Online

I'm enjoying every minute of it!
It's ok, but there are way too many bugs.
It stinks!
Haven't tried it, but will once the dust settles.
I despise MMORPGs.
