It was kind of embarrassing that EA won the tournament last year on the back of butthurt gamers, as opposed to a company that actually does harm (like Bank of America, last year's runner up). I mean, I understand that people have legitimate grips against EA, but those in no way qualify them as "the worst company in America.
It just reflects poorly on Gamers when they behave like their pet peeves are the most important things in the world. Like Ticketmaster's only purpose is to make it more expensive to buy tickets to concerts and events... THEY PRODUCE NOTHING! No matter how bad SimCity is, EA definitely contributed something more of value to the world with that product than Ticketmaster has ever done.
