Top Ten Most Greedy Companies

The Top Ten
1 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.

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.

Star Wars Battlefront 2. Need I go on?

I will: All of their games are pay-to-win and force you to spend absurd amounts of money on things that you NEED to play the game without getting annihilated. Plus the fact that they get away with releasing a slightly worse clone of the same game every year is unforgivable.

Always check those dirt cheap fifas before buying because I bought it for the lowest price possible in my country which is 5 cents. When I tested it, the game did not work and the inside of the cover was really dirty.

2 Apple Apple Inc. is an American multinational technology company that specializes in consumer electronics, software and online services headquartered in Cupertino, California, United States. Apple is the largest technology company by revenue (totaling US $365.8 billion in 2021) and as of May 2022, and, as of June 2022, is the world's biggest company by market capitalization, the fourth-largest personal computer vendor by unit sales and second-largest mobile phone manufacturer. It is one of the Big Five American information technology companies, alongside Alphabet, Amazon, Meta, and Microsoft. ...read more.

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.

I never bought any Apple products but I have used them and like to say I hate it, something that terrible shouldn't be that much. Like they don't care about customer opinions.

Premium prices for the same quality that blackberry releases. But not only that, they make you pay for applecare, to even have music on your phone and their products get damaged so easily.

3 Build-A-Bear Workshop

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

4 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.

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.

Disney has to be the worst on here. They don't care a bit about the labour workshops that are making their toys, they care about their money. Everything in the Disney store should be reduced by like 60 per cent because everything (apart from the little chibis) is expensive. They buy companies and claim it for themselves, saying that they created star wars for all of the little kids to believe. And don't even get me started on the parks. Everything is even more overpriced than the shops, queues for even the smallest ride could be for an hour, and the fast passes aren't even fast. Overall, a big waste of money

They are obviously trying to monopolize and they need to be stopped. I don't care if they "rIgHtFuLlY bOuGhT tHe CoMpAnY", they need to STOP.

6 Roblox Roblox Corporation is an American video game developer based in San Mateo, California. Founded in 2004 by David Baszucki and Erik Cassel, the company is the developer of Roblox, which was released in 2006. As of June 30, 2021, Roblox Corporation employed 1,234 people.

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.

Its true because I used to play ROBLOX since 2012,THEN...they we got ROBUX and they do something to your credit card and when you wanted robux it's a undreedemed so please do not play other games like ROBLOX,Fortnite(They need your email address to hack into you devices and your password)Disney they care about money just money what about the guest you just wanted money for what..? You needed money for just being greedy like how about this you wanted hmm lets say ''I wanted 1234k,but it cost 100 dollars,but you need to go shopping,what would you CHOOSE..? I spend it on FOOD NOT ROBUX!

Roblox is infested with Pedos dating 7 year olds, So called "Hackers" that are really insecure 12 year olds and rich brats who steal there mums credit card. Roblox has never made an effort to fix there game and every year it becomes more cancer.

7 Younique Younique is a multi-level marketing company based in Lehi, Utah. Younique's products are distributed solely by "presenters", who purchase the products to resell them. Their business model has been met with both praise and criticism, with the products' poor quality often derided. Younique is also often considered to be a pyramid scheme.

They hide their greed behind a pro-woman stance and function. Simultaneously making a hilarious amount of money by lying about their true function.

8 Comcast

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.

9 Walmart

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

10 LuLaRoe
The Contenders
11 Verizon Verizon Communications Inc., commonly known as Verizon, is an American multinational telecommunications conglomerate.

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

This should be number 1.

12 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.

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.

Xbox Live and the worst part is how other companies like Nintendo followed this trend

13 FIFA

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 want money.

When buying this game, always offer less than a dollar to get them.

Worst soccer company

14 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.

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

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.

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?

They are as bad as EA

16 Under Armour Under Armour, Inc. is an American sports equipment company that manufactures footwear, sports and casual apparel.

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 first console, the Color TV-Game, in 1977. It gained international recognition with the release of Donkey Kong in 1981 and the Nintendo Entertainment System and Super Mario Bros. in 1985. ...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

At least the subscription service lets you stream NES and SNES games and lets you do so much more that a regular NES or SNES cannot like being able to rewind if you lose a life and in the case of NES, you get to save games.

Sue people for making fan games. False copyright strikes channels for playing their games. Forcing people to pay for something that used to be free. Taking every penny from somebody for recording their games

18 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.

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.

Never tells anyone how much data they collect.

Your fear is showing.

19 Nike Nike, Inc. is an American multinational corporation that is engaged in the design, development, manufacturing, and worldwide marketing and sales of footwear, apparel, equipment, accessories, and services. The company is headquartered near Beaverton, Oregon, in the Portland metropolitan area. It is the ...read more.
20 McDonald's

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.

Horrible greedy company!

21 GoAnimate

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.

22 Konami Konami Holdings Corporation is a Japanese entertainment company that formed in 1969. Konami does a high amount of distributing products such as slot machines and arcade games, anime, video games, and trading / game cards. Konami also

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.

23 Viacom

Sorry about that.

24 2K Games
25 Sony Sony Group Corporation, commonly known as Sony and stylized as SONY, is a Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation headquartered in K┼Źnan, Minato, Tokyo, Japan. ...read more.

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.

They make you pay for horrible games get a switch instead.
