Truth be told, it probably has more to do with the size of the company than it does with profession. If its big enough to treat someone like a nameless cog, then there's always potential to screw people over because the decision to make cuts is made several levels above where no one really knows, or cares, who you are.

NOW PLAYING:
Hearthstone: I don't like card games, and yet I enjoy this.
Chaos on Deponia: Beat the first one, went straight for the second one, that says a lot.
F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin: Seems ok, has mouse issues.

I suppose may have oversimplified it a bit since large companies have a rather complicated structure, but I think I did manage to get the general point of what I meant across.

Meh, amazing how this thread managed to go from "EA is evil" to something that actually resembles a reasonable conversation about semi relevant issues in such a short time.

Not only does the contest suffer from remarkable amounts of self-selection bias, but the end result screams first-world problems.

And they won this year again. I guess the Simshitty fiasco happening at the same time as this contest really didn't help them.

Oh look! Another example of gamers' inclination towards myopic, stupid, sociopathic tendencies!

Why am I not surprised?

I didn't realise gamers were more likely sociopaths. o.O


Am I missing something here?

Well, just the fact that they believe Mass Effect 3 ending and making Sim City online > foreclosing on people who don't deserve it and ruining the environment in terms of evilness makes a compelling argument for my postulate.

It's just a silly un-popularity contest.

If asked who I thought might be more likely to change between gaming company and a bank that's"too big to fail", I'd probably say the gaming company.

I couldn't remember typing that recently and started to wonder if maybe it was late and I was really drunk or something.

Turns out it was a year ago. WELL THEN.

This.  There's a difference between people trolling online and their real opinions about things.

Isn't EA just the publisher for ME3, anyway? People really are stupid.
