Arguably, EA has the most negative influence on PC gaming, rivaling only Steam in its willful customer deception. Steam has a near monopoly on fan-boyism and astro-turfing so it has a much stronger PR response.

See below.

Comparing EAs negative impact on the industry to Steam is like the ultimate masterstroke troll

I know exactly what I'm getting from Steam and exactly what I'm giving up. The idea that they're tricking anyone is silly.

To be fair people hate EA because they're the largest publisher and are therefore an easy target, shady shit they've done over the years aside.

Valve did the same thing with steam when it comes to digital distro, cornered the market based on brand name, uses drm that everyone and their mother cries holy hell when any other publisher uses it, it's ok for Valve though.

You can't hate one company for being monopolistic, while praising or being ok with Valve doing the same thing pretty much.
