Old Mar 3rd, 2008, 07:48 PM        Game Studios - Which is the Best?
Which game developer would you rate above all others, in terms of the quality of their games, their business practises or their contribution to gaming as a whole?

For me it has got to be Valve. Not only have they put out some of the greatest games ever seen on the PC, but they have been extremely supportive of their community and have developed one of the best innovations in game distribution since the CD-ROM - Steam.

I also like how much they give you for free when you buy one of their games. Take the Orange Box, for example. For the price of a regular game you get all of HL2, Portal and Team Fortress 2. Each of which are worth 30 of my money alone. Not to mention all of the additional maps and features currently in development.

Props also need to go to Epic for developing the game engines that just about everyone uses these days. Without them I dare say gaming as a whole would be a much uglier affair.

I opened this thread thinking I'd be in the minority when I would say bioware. But I guess not. Good job, bioware, for making really, really, really good RPGs. Mass Effect is one of the most amazing games I've ever played.

Way back in the day I would've said Sierra or LucasArts, these days I gotta go with Blizzard. They may take a while between releases, but the amount of work they put into 'em are reflected the ravenous reactions they get from their fans. Having played Starcraft II already, I think their best games may still be ahead of them.

Their main office is here in Edmonton but I'm not sure where, exactly. Also, I became aware of a VIDEO GAME MUSIC CONCERT they were putting on, like the day before

Interplay isn't a studio, is it? Weren't they a publisher?

Off the top of my head I'd call for Remedy.

The best thing Blizzard ever did was Justice League: Task Force.

Konami doesn't deserve a top spot if only fir their business practices.

I may sound a little old-fashioned here, but Capcom, Namco, and Konami. As for companys in their glory days, pre-N64 Nintendo, Sega, and Squaresoft. I know they dropped the "soft". I'm talking before that Square Enix merger bullshit!

Just ask Chojin about Konami -he has a personal vendetta, and possibly a lawsuit against them.
