Voted Worst Company But Chart Gamers Disagree

So it seems that the giant steamroller that is EA Games continues on it’s path.

EA Games have picked up some really bad publicity in the past few years, but they make games that people want to buy.

Last weeks chart proves this.

No Company wants poor public opinion however is it always the case that EA have to get it?

Or that they deserve it?

This year EA have been ruled out of this award and deservedly so this time around.

Yes they were the ones who brought about microtransactions, but would FIFA Ultimate Team be as enjoyable without it?

Xbox Players think not.

Yes they are the company that churns out Need For Speed and FIFA games year in year out.

BUT, these games are what gamers want to play, and they all have replayability, this is what places them so highly in the chart

We have all at some time or another shouted loudly that they have inferior products and that they do not think of the gamers.

Well we also need to acknowledge that their products are actually what gamers consistently buy into:

Titanfall

2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

FIFA 14

PLANTS VS ZOMBIES: GARDEN WARFARE

Battlefield 4

If you then include Need For Speed Rivals which is in the chart top 40, then every genre has a EA game within it.

5 Games in the Top 10 places is impressive to say the least. They actually have a 15% share of the top 40 chart places.

With their nearest rivals Ubisoft having only 2 of their titles in the top 10 it doesn’t even flatter the giant.

Here is the official line from Chart-Track:

Titanfall stomps to a third straight chart week at No1 and its 4th in total since launch.

EA continue to occupy the top two spots as 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil remains at No2 in its second week.

Call of Duty: Ghosts climbs two places this week, occupying the No3 spot for the first time since the end of February.

FIFA 14 remains at No4 ahead of Lego The Hobbit  which slips two places to No5 in its third week on the chart.

With little in the way of new releases this week Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is up to No6 while South Park: The Stick of Truth is down to No7.

Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare and Battlefield 4 are at No9 and 10 meaning that EA titles make up 50% of the Top 10 this week.

A PC release of Trials Fusion can’t prevent last week’s new title slipping to No14.
