None. It's a waste of energy I would rather spend on something more important like staring at the paint on my wall.

It's not exactly grudge territory but I'm pretty frustrated with Nintendo for still region locking their consoles/games. I want the Persona Q 3DS but even if I imported it I wouldn't be able to play anything on it. I just have to hope it gets released here and I'm not really holding my breath.

I'd have to agree - if it's something that can be solved by switching to another company, do so, if you have no choice/have no control over the policies of say, a game company, why stress? Life's too short to stress out over things outside of your control.

Yarp. If it's not worth litigating over it's not worth the waste of my energy even thinking about. Simply avoiding products and services is enough.

Grudge =/= stress.

Dumb gamefaqs logic strikes again.

Ha! That's not how the internet works! Lol

Honestly, I'm pretty laid back with companies and don't really care (I've never thought EA was terrible, just that Origin or a game sucks) but I've started holding grudges against the industry in general.

CoD and Battlefield and their whole boring-down of FPS games is a big one for me--though it really is less against those games and more to the I distrust response to them when I think about it logically (companies are too scared to take many chances in FPS now because brown-grey shooters are what sells).

My other big annoyance is releasing unfinished or completely changed product. Zenimax and From software are my big targets here, because ESO could have been great, but is severely unfinished and buggy; and Dark Souls 2 was released without half of the lighting and textures we've seen in previews (aliens and a few other games have done the same thing in the last few years, and DS2 isn't bad by any means but the latest game built on lying marketing).

That's the kind of stuff that gets me, far more than targeting one company-- its repetitive rubbish thrown at us from the industry itself.

EA and Activision for slowly trying to ruin the industry.
