Devil's Advocate time....

Except for the whole voted Worst Company in America 2x
Stupidest thing ever...when it was in the same company as banks and oil conglomerates actually causing harm.

DRM problems with games
I've heard a lot of this, but within my many groups of people that I belong to, not a single one of them has had any real issue outside of day 1 bullshit that happens to every game, including Steamworks titles.

threatening to ban people for disputing charges after failing to deliver a product paid for
I've done this no less than 10 times over the years, each time I've never had an issue with getting a refund with any of EA's products. I guess I must be lucky enough to get those unicorn-level people when I call.

refusing refunds for a broken product
See above...albeit, again as devil's advocate, your idea of a broken product may not jive with reality.

banning people from their games for forums posts
This is pretty funny to read, I've seen people go on mass tirades on EA's various forums and not one of them has been banned in any of the games they posted to. That said, EA has the right to do this if they so desire, as does every place of business has the right to refuse access.

the Battlefield release fiasco
You know, sans the day 1 bullshit of overloaded servers and what-not, I had no real issues with the BF series over the last decade. Of course, any time you rely on a shitton of server backend it will fuck up.

EA is a terrible company that treats their customers poorly. I choose not to be one of those customers for good reason.

Funny though, Valve doesn't do refunds on games sold on Steam unless there has been some form of misrepresentation, and even then it's like pulling teeth to get anything out of it. EA, on the other hand, allows you pretty much to play the game to completion and then return it for a full refund via Origin.

As I opened, this is all devil's advocate things...I don't like EA's business practices overall in terms of management ruling the roost, but don't toss out shit in hopes it'll stick when could just as easily find an equal number of other companies out there that are beloved doing the exact same things.
