Im curious to hear what Konami did to Chojin. I wouldnt have called them the best but I wouldnt have called them that bad. I would have to vote for Bioware.

Konami was dating his mom for a while when he was a child. They were going to get married, but then Konami started beating her. Oh, she kept quiet about it up until the wedding night when Konami staggered out onto the patio, bottle clutched in hand and vomit on it's several hundred dollar tuxedo. I remember that night. It walked away yelling, "I'll be back for you baby! I'm taking you and your little bastard out west."

Needless to say, Chojin doesn't really like to talk about it anymore.

Konami's pretty good. MGS, Contra, Castlevania, and Boktai/Lunar Knights are all pretty solid games. If you don't mind looking like a tool, there's also DDR...

Valve is probably my favorite American Studio. They always think about the player and make sure their game nudges you in the right direction while still letting you solve stuff on your own. They always patch stuff ASAP, and they've done an outstanding job with the Team Fortress 2 updates. It's nice to feel like a developer actually cares about gamers.

Nintendo as a whole used to be my favorite Japanese developer, but they haven't released anything lately that gets me pumped like in the SNES or N64 days. If Treasure starts putting out more stuff again besides SHMUPs, I'd love it. They blew me away with Mischief Makers.

What? It was a really good platformer, the puzzles got pretty trickey, and the bosses were really exciting.

Only game that lets you ride a kitten riding a rocket while stopping laser beams with your bare hands. Also, SHAKE SHAKE.

I think Valve, Double Fine, Bungie, ID and Squaresoft.
Valve made a lot of epic games. Truly, truly epic games.
Double Fine's Psychonauts is unbeatable.
Bungie made great games, and is extremely supportive of fan-based work (we all got the marathon helmets for our Millennium Falcon we made of crates)
I take it back DOOM is unbeatable but psychonauts still rocks
And FF7 and Advent Children are still two of my favorite things ever.
Oh, and Team Ninja.

Bioware, Retro, Rockstar, SNK, Relic, Origin Systems, Sierra, Level 5

Yep, Bioware all right. Pretty much only studio capable of delivering a healthy stream of good RPG's in the last 10 years, so that's definitley something.

Though I've played only one of their games, I really really like Double Fine. Same way with Grasshopper Manufacturing or whatever Suda 51 is calling himself.

Konami is absolutely fantastic at making the games that I absolutely hate to play but love the story to, like Metal Gear and Silent Hill.

Retro Studios did a fan goddamn tastic job translating Metroid into 3D and produced some really, really atmospheric and generally great games. Corruption less than the other two, but still!

I'm eager to see what they'll do now that the Prime trilogy is over and done with.
