Now the question is, how did a video games company overcome a bank that destroyed livelihoods of countless of citizens and nearly toppled the world’s economy? While many are puzzled by this, I’m not surprised as banks tend to be… well, banks. Besides that, people outside America who aren’t familiar with BofA, have likely touched an EA game before – sorry to say, I’m sure they voted for EA. Better luck next year BofA!

This also shows how powerful a video game can impact a voting process – now, if only they voted for something more useful, like a new world order. This isn’t the first time a game has affected a rating/voting process, if only we Malaysians were that enthusiastic when voting for a government.
