5 developers that we wish still existed

PS3 Attitude: "Last week, SCE Studio Liverpool became the latest in a long line of developers to unfortunately close their doors. It’s no secret that the videogame industry has been hit extremely hard by the global recession in recent years, so PS3 Attitude thought we’d take some time to remember five of our favourite development studios that are sadly no longer with us." (38 Studios, Bizarre Creations, Black Rock Studios, PC, PS3, SCE Studio Liverpool, Team Bondi, Xbox 360)

It'll always be Zipper Interactive for me, Socom 2 was my first real online competitive game, I sunk so many weeks and months into that game. Shame that they steadily went downhill until they were dissolved.

Clover, even thou they still exist they were the reason why Capcom was my favorite game company.

Yeah Clover (now Platinum Studios) made the Zelda Seasons and Ages (My favorite Zelda's) games for Nintendo through a partnership with Capcom, and made Okami. Although Platinum Games is still a good company, how'd they go from Okami and Zelda, to Hack and Slash only?

God Hand is the ultimate Clover game to me, If God Hand was a food it would be a Baked Ziti

I loved Blackrock, and Split/Second is to this day one of my all-time favorite race games. I'm glad that some of them moved on to do a new studio, but as far as I know they only design for iOS games, so i'm a little heart broken.

989 Studios. I have had a desire for a new Siphon Filter and Jet Moto game for a very long time.

Origin. The studio responsible for two classic gaming franchises: Ultima and Wing Commander.

What about Ensemble Studios ?

Age of Empires 1 ,2, 3 , Age of Mythology

They made really good quality games that were extremely addicting to play for years.

SquareEnix needs to go back to SNES style FF.
