Electronic Arts is number one among US gamers?

Electronic Arts is the most popular video game producer among US gamers?! Yes, according to the numbers presented to us by V. Chaudhary, 64% of avid video gamers are still clawing for EA action. It's all good... as long as they're doing supporters right.

Rockstar Games is right behind EA at 63% for US gamers. Here's the breakdown as it was presented:

64% Of Avid US Gamers Take Interest In Electronic Arts 

Electronic Arts has been mired in controversies throughout most of its existence. Initially, the company was infamous for its acquisition practices and work culture. In recent years, the company has drawn the wrath of video gamers with its loot box mechanism in Star Wars Battlefront II. Furthermore, they constantly attract criticism from gamers due to minimal evolution in its sporting franchises such as FIFA, NHL, NBA Live, and Madden. However, the recent Morning Consult survey proves that no publicity is bad publicity.

Electronic Arts, despite its less-than-perfect image, generates interest from 64% of avid video gamers. 37% of gamers claimed to be very interested in the company, and 27% were somewhat interested.

In the second spot, Rockstar Games generates interest from 61% of avid gamers. The American company is responsible for producing open-world games like Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption. Ubisoft and Activision are third and fourth, respectively, with a total of 57% interest rate. 

Ubisoft is a French company and the first non-US company on the list. The French developers are responsible for some really popular franchises such as Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, Watch Dogs, etc. Activision is another US-based developer, famous for its Call of Duty franchise.

In the fifth spot, Capcom is the first Japan-based developer on the list. The Japanese company is behind several franchises such as Resident Evil, Monster Hunter, Street Fighter, Devil May Cry, etc. 55% of avid US gamers keep an interest in the company and its products.

Blizzard Entertainment comes sixth with an interest level of 53%. The US-based developer is famous for its online games such as Warcraft, Diablo, Overwatch, etc. 

Amazon Games was only established in 2012, and it doesn’t have a significant amount of games in its portfolio yet. However, it has already generated curiosity among US gamers. 53% of these gamers claim to keep an interest in this offering from Jeff Bezos. "Wait... wait... what?!" - Blu

Bethesda Softworks attract interest from 47% of US gamers. The American developer, currently owned by Microsoft, has developed games like The Elder Scrolls, Doom, Fallout, etc.

At the ninth spot, Square Enix is the second Japanese company to feature with an interest rate of 46% in the US. The company is most famous for its Final Fantasy series.

American developer Gearbox Studios finishes the top-ten list with a 45% interest rate among US gamers. The Texas-based developer is famous for its Borderlands and Duke Nukem series. - V. Chaudhary

"I would be ashamed to list Duke Nukem, the last game was outdated at launch. They still have a chance to do a relaunch of the franchise." - Yang

There are solid listings, and we appreciate V. Chaudhary for the information but I would pull Amazon Games out of this. Interest in what's to come is different than interest in the games a studio already has.
