i cant wait for EA to go out of business... sure we'll lose some games, but it'll open doors up for better games from new companies
While I generally like EA games, I'm very disgusted in their "online" focus, including their DRM and micro transactions.
Only 9 comments before this one. Wow. They say indifference is worse than hate. EA has acted indifferent and narcissistic to core customer protests. They totally deserve this Most Hated title.
DRM, Microtransactions, Dead Space not horror any more, FIFA 13: FIFA 12, Simcity, ME3, Madden, Day one DLC, and many more I cant remember now.
CONGRATULATIONS EA !!!
Please mention in the description they're the Madden publisher first and foremost. The NFL monopoly EA has on the football gaming industry is deplorable. EA has failed to innovate Madden year after year, stretching its rudimentary outdated engine beyond its breaking point and consistently removing features only to re-add them later.
They've also utilized a multitude of controversial tactics. This includes a plethora of in-game advertising, failing to combat rampant online cheaters on account of their poor engine, and micro-transactions. Their marketing has gotten so bad, they hype up things like pylon physics and 3-D grass.
EA deserves this award year after year. It's unfortunate EA is twisting this infamous award to serve their benefit by painting themselves as the good guys while further pushing their marketing agendas.
@TheCptQuebec They ended up ruining those games too. Mass Effect 3 was the biggest let down in gaming for me.
@kik4444 No redemption, there´s really nothing they can do that will get me interested in theyr "products".
