While you weren’t watching, history was quietly made today. Video game company EA has achieved something no organization has ever done before. Through dedication, hard work, and a complete and utter commitment to the cause, EA has become the first company to win the Consumerist’s Worst Company In America award twice in a row.

Some of the other companies that were in the running actually make the world a worse place in a very practical manner.

Hell yes. And here’s why.
