Battlefield and Titanfall publisher Electronic Arts has been named "Worst Company in America" two years running, but the company won't complete the three-peat. First-round voting is underway in The Consumerist's annual bracket challenge, and EA "lost" to Time Warner Cable by a narrow margin of 51.2% to 48.8%.

The Consumerist called out Battlefield 4's rocky launch as a shortcoming for EA in the past year, as well as the release of Titanfall earlier this month. The latter point might raise some eyebrows, as Titanfall's release largely went off without a hitch. Whatever the case, EA will not take home the "Golden Poo" award this year.

Halo and Xbox company Microsoft is also in the running this year for "Worst Company in America," but EA is the only company in the bracket that focuses exclusively on gaming. Of course, Microsoft has many other non-gaming divisions.
