Top Ten Most Greedy Companies
EA sucks. Lazy and incapable of making a good football game. Madden is a joke and they were so scared of the competition that they literally came go with the exclusive licensing concept so that 2k couldn't compete. I will never buy Madden or an EA game.
Only worst company in America twice in a row, EA is a morally bankrupt, shady mid-tier video game publisher that is notorious for buying up smaller development teams and liquidating their assets. Fueled by rehashed annual sports releases bought by millions regardless of quality, EA is the the dark truth of what happens when a company has complete control over a particular market. Absolutely shameless, will resort to any and all means be they legal or questionable to exploit consumers and gamers alike.
They bought out many different game developers, re-released their beloved games as broken messes and shut the developers down because they didn't make enough money. Not to mention all the micro transactions they force gamers to use, essentially making most of their games pay-to-win. EA is run by greedy businessmen and investors who do not care about gamers, game developers or a finished product, only the money they'll make from them.
New soda straw, brought to you by Apple! Does exactly what a 10 cent plastic straw from Kroger does, but it has a super cool Apple insignia on it. That'll be $799,99, please.
They on purpose make older devices unusable by manipulating software. That adds to electronic junk. Good companies become better by either improving product or reducing cost. They haven't done either. Instead, they are busy alienating their customers by annoying them.
The ridiculous pricing of their products is what causes people to use a Hackintosh instead. Better performance for less than half the price. And of course, the planned obsolescence of their older computers.
They're greedy alright, but they were at their worst when they set up an event called Pay Your Age Day, where so many kids and parents would form a crowd and fill up the stores as well as wrap around them, waiting many hours just to get a $1 discounted bear.
What's so important about that?
It was chaos and people were complaining and even fighting, and so many people got heartbroken when the company decided to cancel the event because it was too crowded.
So many people who lined up to get a bear didn't get one at all.
The company really wanted the money.
Sharon Price John is the epitome of everything a CEO shouldn't be: greedy, oblivious to the interests of the company's target demographic (kids), and willing to do anything to make a quick buck.
$20! For a bear! Well thank the lord I got a Captain America stuffed monkey
Would be nice if parents didn't have to sell their first born just to get their second born a half-day pass at one of their parks.
Disney does not care about you... Only your money. Their idea of a Gift is a discounted price. If you have played any of their online games you know this to be true. They will not even give "digital" Gifts (that cost them nothing). They over charge for in game credit so much, that a "free" game can cost you thousands of dollars. And don't even get me started on how they are destroying the Star Wars franchise. When I was a kid, the whole family would gather to watch Disney every Sunday. The music starts... You see the Castle and think "this is going to be good! ". That feeling is long gone. The fall of the Disney Empire can not come fast enough for me.
Wreck it Ralph 2 was so bad, it ruined the joy of the original and it shows how greedy Disney really is, from using Apple devices to stuff you'll find in The Emoji Movie and more to self promotion and even the use of multiple Fortnite references. Fortnite is already greedy enough, it didn't have to by bought by Disney. Ever since they bought Fortnite, they advertised that game in their ads, Coop and Cami ask the world, Avengers Endgame and more. They even tried to make a show, but got cancelled before it even finished. Do I need to say more for the live action remakes. Now all their films are said to have terrible endings from Infinity War onwards. Even old films not by Disney are getting remade by them. These reasons and more are why Disney sucks nowadays.
Company full of pedophiles, "To keep ROBLOX a safe and welcoming place!" yet they pay pedophiles in their platform and take it to sluggish levels to ban their accounts. They piggyback so-called "investors" and constantly ignore their community like no morning. Don't even mention game discovery, or their constant redesigns that hurt to see more than the previous "outdated" models, really the only motivation to play roblox is to mess around with a friend group, but even that is already becoming impossible, they're now imposing you their desktop app, which just makes roblox more of a malware than a gaming platform.
Oh and can't forget the time their CEO was found guilty of tax fraud, that should reveal their true colors.
They used to be amazing, but NOW, they only want to eat your money, to the point of taking 70% of your clothing robux (despite being able to generate a million robux at will), removing many good games for minor reasons, being ignorant of their fans by pushing Rthro despite everyone hating it, and paying its young developers in PLAY MONEY that you must pay for. Crap, this company sucks now.
They hide their greed behind a pro-woman stance and function. Simultaneously making a hilarious amount of money by lying about their true function.
I have comcast, their greed know's no bounds.
I pay over $300 a month for cable. Need I say more?
They cheat on billing statements.
I don't really have a problem with their products and services, but I don't like what they do to the people that work for them. Over half of their workers with children live below the poverty line. But even worse, in 2013, a factory in Bangladesh collapsed EVEN when it was known the building was unsafe beforehand, and without telling the emloyees. Over ONE THOUSAND people died and Walmart refuses to compensate the victims. Now, there were other companies involved, but at least they compensated the families affected (except Sears). They could have fixed the building, but preferred to save some cash, and they have not compensated the victims.
Walmart is trash
They love to make you think you have something great and yet they overcharge you and make make you pay for nothing at all. Annoying and stupid company.
I agree. Verizon is a greedy company. This should be higher on the list.
After Net Neutrality was cancelled, this company should be in lawsuit. Ajit Pai should legit die
Dapper Pickle, FIFA is a real thing, you know. But they are corrupt and only respond to money.
After the whole corruption scandal, I guess FIFA just wants money.
When buying this game, always offer less than a dollar to get it.
Microsoft is taking capitalism way too far, unlike other companies. If Bill Gates still owned this company, it would be way better.
They are so nickel and dime. They charge for Xbox Live and they charge for little things like changing your xbox gamer tag.
They started the paying for online trend.
There is no royalty with this company. They make you alone work when it is actually two people work. They schedule you whenever they want you to work based on your flexible availability. However, they cut your hours by sending you home early, schedule less hours, give late evening shift and early morning shift next day. If you are lazy, I guess it won't matter but if you are a hardworking person, you will be used, overworked, and taken advantage of this greedy company.
The loyalty program has gotten more stingy. Why should I spend $100 to get one free cup of coffee? Starbucks charges $6 for a cup of coffee. I finally wised up realized I can make my own for $1.50!
I'm not spending a good 30 bucks just for a cup of coffee or something
Black ops pass seriously Activision I shouldn't even have to say anything and I'm not.
Supply drops and microtransactions in general... most greediest pigs ever
Why is Activision so low?
Nintendo was founded in 1889 as Nintendo Karuta by craftsman Fusajiro Yamauchi and originally produced handmade hanafuda playing cards. After venturing into various lines of business during the 1960s and acquiring a legal status as a public company, Nintendo distributed its... read more
So I guess copyright strikes on free fan-made games dedicated to them isn't greedy when Nintendrones say it, am I right? I mean granted no other company is pure-hearted and game companies often add in microtransactions and overpriced DLC for the sake of money, but at least they are optional. However, once your fan-made game that you worked so hard for gets taken down, then you lose it all. So please tell me, which one is greedier, microtransactions and DLC that are optional, or copyright strikes that take away your entire project?
greedy, there are some games that doesn't reduce price like Zelda breath of the wild, ARM, Mario kart, etc
On top of that this company is kid friendly game and they just charge them money for Nintendo switch online service for stupid stuff. there are peoples who BROUGHT your console for over 300 dollars that is expensive than Xbox and didn't think about put up free game per month or something like that. if they release another console, I'm not BUYING it... I'm done with Nintendo
Greedy, Orwellian, ruined YouTube, and do everything they can to prevent offline downloading because then you might not have to sit through 39 ads for a 40 minute video. Google is disgusting.
They promote Stadia too much, knowing damn well that almost no one is going to use it anyways.
Ruined YouTube. They did. They ruined it just so they could get more money. Gross.
Love how the dollar menu has become the $3.19 menu pretty much overnight. Who do you think you are, McDonalds—Five Guys or something? THEY can get away with charging what they do because they have a quality burger. You barely serve edible food, and yet you keep raising prices like your quality or something! Lmao
They're also the best at lying. I never eat at McDonalds. Their apples have chemicals, their fries are soggy, the chicken nuggets stink, and the burgers look like they've been stepped on.
Real Greedy CEO Restaurant Owners doesn't care about their crew employees.
Things have changed significantly and it's not even called "GoAnimate" anymore. The focus went from community to business. The former was admittedly stupid (for the most part) but its demise was hard to swallow.
Yep, people pay for making grounded videos.
They make you pay $40 a month to get in.
Konami is one of the worst gaming company's, hell maybe even worst company's of all time. They fired the creator of metal gear solid just because he had a creative vision. There workers are treated REALLY poorly and they got somebody's game (silent hills) and made it a pichinco machine. And they didn't even pay the creator of the original video game a penny.

Sorry about that.

Monthly plans get worse and worse. Sony cares less about their users than Microsoft does (which is really, REALLY saying something) for Xbox.
The PlayStation 4 is what made me start hating PlayStation. They copy other company's strategies to make more money, like paying monthly to play online with friends, which they copied off of Microsoft.
They made Chuck the Angry Bird do the hype dance from Fortnite.
