1. Today, The Consumerist announced the results of their annual “Worst Company in America” competition.
2. Electronic Arts, the videogame giant, “won”, making it the only company in the history of the poll to “win” in consecutive years.
3. (It vanquished “runner-up” Bank of America with 78 percent of the vote).
It was a bad year for EA, most notably for their release of Sim City, which was plagued by server issues that prevented people from playing the game. This follows last year’s game Mass Effect 3, which was nominated for game of the year by several publications, but disastrously had an ending that some people thought was a little unsatisfying. The Consumerist did not release data regarding what percentage of respondents identify as gamers.
