EA is notable for loving RegionCoding. Many games published by EA for the UsefulNotes/{{Xbox 360}} are region coded, as are some of their games for the UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable. They have even announced their intention to region code the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 version of ''VideoGame/ArmyOfTwo'', but fortunately stepped down when numerous angry fans threatened to boycott the game. Unfortunately, online play remains region segregated, and the Xbox 360 version of the game remains region locked. EA is also notable for winning Consumer Media LLC's[[note]]the same guys who publish ''Consumer Report''[[/note]] "worst company of America award" for 2012 ''and'' 2013, though [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement we'll leave the discussion of why they deserve it to another article.]]

'''Electronic Arts''' ('''EA''') is the second oldest independent video game publisher in existence (since the demise of Creator/{{Acclaim}}). Beginning life in 1982 as the brainchild of electronics entrepreneur and corporate raider Trip Hawkins, the company first made its name publishing titles for the home computer market on machines like the UsefulNotes/{{Commodore 64}} and [[{{UsefulNotes/AppleII}} Apple II]] rather than attempting to follow Creator/{{Activision}} into the home console market. As a result of this, they largely avoided becoming embroiled in UsefulNotes/TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983 that killed off many of their rivals. In their early days, they justified their name by attempting to treat computer games as art, and the authors as artists in their own right, [[VideoGame/PinballConstructionSet sending them to network television interviews and nationwide press junkets.]] They also did various non-videogame projects during the era, including the animation in the title sequence of the British gameshow ''Series/CatchPhrase'' for its' first few years.

In November 2017, the company's community ''Reddit'' page was consistently downvoted, especially when discussing complaints about the ''VideoGame/StarWarsBattlefrontII2017'' character system. One such post has well over 500,000 downvotes.
