The 8 Best Videogames Made By Closed Studios

Dorkly writes: Studios can close for all kinds of reasons – talent has moved away, bankruptcy, breaking off into smaller entities, EA – but when that happens, their deaths are often not noticed nor remembered by the gamers who played their products. Some properties are bought by larger distributors, and many more are simply forgotten forever. We wish to remember some fallen studios and their finest games. These are 8 of the best videogames made by closed studios. (Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved, PC, PS3, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, Velvet Assassin, Xbox 360)

Some studios should have been sold instead of being closed down.
