Electronic Arts voted Worst Company In America

Games publisher collects the most votes and claims dubious award

Posted on
Electronic Arts, which made its inaugural appearance in Consumerist.com's Worst Company In America tournament this year, has defeated Bank of America to claim the 2012 title.

The voting results set a tournament record for the most votes cast in a single round with 50,575 total submissions. While last year's winner, BP, narrowly beat out rival Bank of America in 2011, this year EA easily claimed the top spot, with 64 percent of the votes.

Over its three-week run, the seventh annual Worst Company In America tournament drew more than 260,000 total votes. EA overtook Sony, Best Buy, and Comcast in previous rounds of the voting.
 
EA has responded to the news to GI, only stating: "We're sure that bank presidents, oil, tobacco and weapons companies are all relieved they weren't on the list this year. We're going to continue making award-winning games and services played by more than 300 million people worldwide."

The Worst Company In America is a yearly tournament hosted by the Consumerist, which promotes users to nominate and vote for their most disliked companies in the US.
