electronic arts EA Voted Worst Company in America in Consumerist PollElectronic Arts is in the news again, this time as the winner of the Consumerist’s 2012 award for worst company in America.

After more than 250,000 votes, Consumerist readers ultimately decided that the type of greed exhibited by EA, which is supposed to be making the world a more fun place, is worse than Bank of America’s avarice, which some would argue is the entire point of operating a bank.

To those who might sneer at something as “non-essential” as a video game company winning the Worst Company In America vote: It’s that exact kind of attitude that allows people to ignore the complaints as companies like EA to nickel and dime consumers to death.

As a consumer poll the results are pretty subjective, and there are rumors that reddit readership may have skewed the results in EA’s “favor,” but it points to a trend of growing consumer dissatisfaction with the endless money-grabs that make game publishers like EA notorious.
