EA: Voted Worst Company in America for 2012
In the last of the battle between EA and BofA, EA had stolen the Golden Poo Award, even beating out AT&T, UPS and other highly recognizable companies.
According to The Consumerist:

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.

The Consumerist even went on to detail some of the faults that contributed to EA getting the Golden Poo:

There have even been numerous accusations that EA and its ilk deliberately hold back game content with the sole intent of charging a fee for it at a later date. It’s one thing to support a game with new content that is worth the price. It’s another to put out an inferior — and occasionally broken — product with the mindset of “ah, we’ll fix it later and make some money for doing so.”
