No. They could be called 'Baby murderers of the year' or 'Terrorist Sympathisers of the decade' but I'd still have fun on SimCity, I'd still buy Dragon Age 3, I'd still go through Mass Effect 3 again to finish up my Shepards.
I know everyone hates EA, I don't, I think their marketing teams are retarded and they say some of the stupidest things you ever hear but if they're devs are making good games I don't give a fupp, until my enjoyment of a game is affected by blocking content off as the conspiracy theorists claim then I'll keep playing good games while they complain about the publisher.

It's an amazing concept I know but one more people should try instead of flying off into a rage about how evil EA is. Yep, I was not thrilled with the ending to ME 3 either but the overall ME series is still one of the best gaming experiences I have ever had.
In the meantime, I'll still be thinking that huge financial (US mortgage meltdown, Iceland financial collapse, Cyprus, etc, etc) and energy companies are much more dangerous to us puny mortals instead of a entertainment company who's worst offense seems to be the occasional disappointing game and not so great customer service.

i actually buy their games, im not one of these people who just harks on about how shoddy they are, ive been playing their games for over 20 years, supporting them, but they always shoot themselves in the foot. they have the potential to be the greatest games company in the world yet they choose not to by ruinign their titles

Yes, EA has made a few mistakes with their games, but, what i don't think everyone understands is, they're just games!! These might be an important part of some of our lives; a way to spend time and relax doing something we enjoy, but they're not as important as the infrastructure that governs our lives, our economy, etc..
Some companies were single-handedly responsible for the recession which has spread throughout the western world, the greatest environmental disasters in recent history, and costing us, the taxpayer, several billions of pounds. These are who should be competing for WCIA not game developers and beer manufactures (yes, i know the bank of america is up there).
To elaborate on my topic sentence, it is evident that most people don't realise what is truly important in their lives if they are not directly involved in it themselves. Most people don't really understand what led to the recession or what the real impact for them is, but they drink beer and play games so they most be the most important things, right? Wrong!
To conclude, even if EA made the worst games ever they would not be the worst company in America, because, after all, you can just buy other games, but when some companies mess things up it impacts you whether you're involved with them or not. Also, I know I've made some (possibly harsh) generalisations but exaggeration is a useful way to put my point across.

Is it the mass effect thing?
