For the second straight year, the Consumerist has named Battlefield and FIFA publisher Electronic Arts the "Worst Company in America." EA knocked out Bank of America in the 2013 final round with 77.5 percent of the votes, winning the site's "Golden Poo" award.
To reach the final round of the consumer affairs blog's tournament, EA took down companies like AB InBev, Facebook, AT&T, and Ticketmaster. Bank of America toppled Capital One, Chase, Wal-Mart, and Comcast to square off against EA in the final round for the second straight year.
According to the Consumerist, EA has failed at three "core requirements" of running a consumer-friendly business. These are: provide a product that people want and like, sell your product at a reasonable price, and support the products you sell.
Reached for comment, an EA representative pointed to chief operating officer Peter Moore's recent blog post on the consumer poll, which stated, "We can do better. We will do better."
