Top Ten Good but Greedy CompaniesThis 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
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.
Windows 10 is good but I hate it because it's buggy. Don't give excuses like I got a virus or something.
A recurring theme on this site is the total ignorance of the free market. None of these products is necessary for survival, and...wait for it...NOBODY is forcing you to buy them. Stop the whining and sniveling and get with the reality of the way the world works.
I don't hate Micorsoft for reasons you're probably expecting. I hate them because their hardware is absolutely terrible. The one and the 360 have had so many glitches it led me to hate them. I got this glitch on my 360 where all data on the main unit got deleted. I was pissed.
I like the XBox but microsoft forced me to leave it.
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.
EA is probably one of the greediest game companies out there. They charge money for virtually everything
They publish good games, but are garbage otherwise.
EA is one of the most greediest companies ever existed. But at least they make good games.
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.
True. I love Disney, but they can be pretty greedy.
They should be #1 Have you SEEN the prices for their hotels?
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
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.
Greedy as hell always changes requirements to high,made contact with Nvidia
Hey you want a Dish with Issues during climate weather? Oh course not!
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.
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.
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 suck today
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.
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.
Good, but greedy with their copyright
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
The AM2R, Project M and Pokémon Uranium copyright strikes immediately come to mind here
Banning lets players since... 2015 I think
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.
This should be No. 1 already, Roblox don't wanna ban anyone just to keep their money.
YA ya ya, the online dating game that allows 5 year olds to date the oldest of people who play.
Pay to not be called "noob"!
Lets raise the prices of PS Plus!
Better yet lets make people buy to play online!
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!
I love them but they’re overpriced
They do good at fixing computers, but I found out online that they charged someone 200 dollars to clean a computer virus.
100% in first place
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.
Pay to get to arena 12 extremely fast! Pay to be level 13 fast
