these people voted a videogame company "more EVIL" than banks and oil producers. gotta stop and wonder if they have a bias? maybe EA wiped their account when they were caught hacking or something, lol.

guy A) i spilled 210,000,000 gallons of oil into the gulf of mexico

guy B) i rig the economy for the rich with the fed so that i'm too-big-to-fail, while foreclosing houses on poor people

guy C) i introduced DLC and microtransactions into the videogames that i make

how can anyone take you people seriously when you voted for Guy C?

if anyone can explain that to me, you'll have my attention, but until that's settled, you can't take all the hate seriously. seriously!

The problem isn't who is more evil, the problem is who is voting. The banks and oil companies have done much more damage to people and the world than EA, but gamers as a group tend to be online much more than the general population and much more likely to vote in an online poll. All it takes is someone on some forum to post "Consumerist has a poll: Worst company in America! Let's go vote down EA!" and voila.

So, the methodology of this poll is pretty flawed. To get a true idea of what people think you must poll a truly random section of the population. An online poll can't do that.
