Top Ten Good but Greedy Companies

This is not a clone of most greedy companies, this list is about good companies that are greedy. A lot of these are game companies and there were a few items I considered, but decided not to include.
The Top Ten
1 Microsoft Microsoft Corporation is an American multinational technology company headquartered in Redmond, Washington, that develops, manufactures, licenses, supports and sells computer software, consumer electronics and personal computers and services.

As much as I love Windows 10, Xbox360, Microsoft Edge, and Microsoft Word, they charge for Xbox Live, which though allows Xbox Live to be of high quality, it shows that they love money. And, they bought rare, and turned them into garbage.

I like the XBox but microsoft forced me to leave it.

It was that or EA at a deserving #1.

2 EA Electronic Arts, Inc., also known as EA Games, is an American developer, marketer, publisher and distributor of video games headquartered in Redwood City, California.

EA is a good game company do to good games like The Sims, Battlefield, and Mass Effect, but they also have a history of to much DLC, and I heard they have even charged money for patches.

Also was the one who does nothing in Plants vs Zombies 2 except to make slightly upgraded versions of normal plants that cost money. PopCap, bring the worlds back!

EA is one of the most greediest companies ever existed. But at least they make good games.

EA is probably one of the greediest game companies out there. They charge money for virtually everything

3 Disney The Walt Disney Company, commonly known as Disney, is an American diversified multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate headquartered at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California.

As much as I love movies like Big Hero 6 and The Lion King, the movie Frozen has a lot of merchandise surrounding it including food with the characters faces on the box. And, Disney Infinity is basically Skylanders, but with Disney characters, and a less flexible version of Minecraft's building gameplay. 15 bucks for a figurine required to play a game, yay.

They shutdown amazing games, such as toontown and club penguin. For a horrible mobile game that basically forces you to pay money.

Thanks to them, vast amounts of history in the past 100 years are slowly fading away due to the copyright laws they keep extending.

Plus, they did to Lucasarts what EA did to Westwood.

Damn right they're greedy. The reason they made no merchandise for their Enchanted franchise, is because they did not want to have to pay Amy Adams & Co. for their likenesses.

4 Google Google is an American multinational technology company specializing in Internet-related services and products. These include online advertising technologies, search, cloud computing, and software.

As much as I like PlayStore and YouTube, the games on their Play Store have in app purchases even if they are free, and they bought YouTube, and finally, you bye shows on their Play Store while you can watch them for free online

5 Ubisoft Ubisoft Entertainment SA is a French multinational video game developer and publisher, headquartered in Rennes, France.

So, assassin's creed is good, but they also rehash just dance and their other franchises each year, while forcing PC gamers to use the terrible Uplay platform, and still charge lots of money for micro transactions, DLC, and season passes. So yeah, a company good for the games, bad for the service.

6 Dish Dish Network is an American direct-broadcast satellite service provider. The company provides satellite television, satellite Internet access, audio programming, and interactive television services to commercial and residential customers in the United States.

Basically, they have good channels, but also try to get you to stick with them by making commercials hating on Direct T.V., which takes away money from their rival.

Hey you want a Dish with Issues during climate weather? Oh course not!

7 Starbucks Starbucks Corporation is an American coffee company and coffeehouse chain. Starbucks was founded in Seattle, Washington in 1971. Today it operates 23,768 locations worldwide, including 13,107 in the United States, 2,204 in China, 1,418 in Canada, 1,160 in Japan and 872 in South Korea.

I love to chill off and drink an iced drink from there (considering it's underrated here in Ireland), but I do agree they're too aggressive on their workers.

Good coffee, yes.
One person does two person work, yes.
Schedule your work for you unfairly, yes.
Takes advantage of hardworking people, yes.

8 Konami

How dare they bait the fans of Gurren Lagann when they disappointed us with some stupid pachinko machines instead of a new Gurren Lagann series! Just what the hell do you think one of your greatest works with the company Gainax is, Konami?!

They make good games like Metal Gear and Castlevania. Good at games, yes.
They also treat their workers poorly and they don't give the workers the credit they deserve. Good at treating workers good, no.

9 Nintendo Nintendo Co., Ltd. is a Japanese multinational consumer electronics and software company headquartered in Kyoto, Japan.

The Disney of video game companies. Their game ports are more expensive then Xbox and Playstation ports with downgraded graphics and gameplay with underperforming consoles of their gen except Gamecube.

They take money off of Let's players who records Nintendo. I don't care how many of you TopTens are going to attack me It's true

10 Capcom

They gave us Resident Evil, Street Fight, and Mega Man, but also gave us Disc Locked DLC, which is basically paying for what is already on the disc.

The Contenders
11 Roblox Corp.

They wouldn't fix their original vehicle system bugs and glitches non-scripted, nor physic system, including other bugs, but instead they decided to ignore it along with the community, to make more profit than any company out there. It was good back then, when Erik was around but unfortunately, his life got cut short. they would be better off than being ran by a Bill Gates wannabe.

Ya know what's ridiculous with this game? They support ODers (online daters) because they spend their money on builders club and robux. So we can all tell that they care more about money than a child's life

You pretty much have to buy Robux, their premium currency, to change your outfit and avoid being bullied with the default outfit.

YA ya ya, the online dating game that allows 5 year olds to date the oldest of people who play.

12 Sony Sony Corporation, commonly referred to as Sony, is a Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation headquartered in Kōnan Minato, Tokyo, Japan.

Lets raise the prices of PS Plus!
Better yet lets make people buy to play online!

13 AT&T
14 Infinite Flight Infinite Flight Product Image
15 Activision Activision Publishing, Inc. is an American video game publisher. It was founded on October 1, 1979 and was the world's first independent developer and distributor of video games for gaming consoles.

I wish they were higher up! I should've added them the first time! If I did, it was voted down! This song sucks so much!

16 Apple Apple Inc. is an American multinational technology company headquartered in Cupertino, California, that designs, develops, and sells consumer electronics, computer software, and online services.
17 Bed Bath & Beyond
18 Under Armour Under Armour, Inc. is an American company that manufactures footwear, sports, and casual apparel. Under Armour's global headquarters are located in Baltimore, Maryland with additional offices located in Amsterdam, Austin, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Houston, Jakarta, London, Mexico City, Munich, New York more.
19 Best Buy

They do good at fixing computers, but I found out online that they charged someone 200 dollars to clean a computer virus.

20 Johnson & Johnson
21 Nickelodeon Nickelodeon is an American basic cable and satellite television network launched on December 1, 1977, and is owned by Viacom through Viacom Media Networks and based in New York City.

True. They were responsible for the announcement of Kamp Koral and they intentionally waited for Stephen Hillenburg to die just because he's against spin-offs of the SpongeBob series. Nickelodeon LITERALLY defile Hillenburg's grave for money.

22 Nike
23 BrainPOP
24 McDonald's
25 Supercell Supercell is a mobile game development company founded in June 2010 in Helsinki, Finland. The company's debut game was
