Edge Developer Awards: Notch responds

EDGE - Minecraft figurehead Markus ‘Notch’ Persson has taken to Twitter to take issue with with Mojang’s placing in our inaugural game developer listings. We placed the Swedish studio second only to Valve in the first Edge Developer Awards, which were judged by Edge’s editorial team. Notch described the placing as a ‘great honour’, but disagreed with our decision. (Culture, Notch)

Because he damn well knows he doesn't deserve second spot.
Even though it's a shitty list to begin with from a shitty magazine.

Hopefully it will be their first and last Developer Award.

I'm inclined to agree with you. BUT I also have tremendous respect for Valve and Steam. I'm excited to see how Notch's 0x10c whatever project will yield.

I'm not surprized, he was above a lot of great developers which have done a lot more then him

NaughtyDog, Nintendo...hell even Gearbox or Rocksteady

I mean the top 10 list in general is terrible , we have...

10. Riot Games - Mainly for League Of Legends....REALLY

09. Arkane Studios - The only thing they really did was recently and that was Dishonored

08. FromSoftware - I loved Demon Souls but in the top 10...no just no

07. Bungie - Don't have a problem with

06. Rockstar North - Don't have a problem with

05. Naughty Dog - Don't have a problem with but to low on the list.

04. Platinum Games - A HEAD of NaughtyDog...for what Bayonetta and Vanquish compared to Crash, Jak and Daxter and bloody Uncharted.

03. Nintendo EAD - Don't have a problem with but should of been second or first in my opinion with all they've done for gaming.

02. Mojang - As we're talking about the guy has hardly done anything....Minecraft is one game. They've done more then Nintendo, ND, Rockstar, Bungie etc

01. Valve - Don't really have a problem with being in the top 10.

The whole list is just....bad, like really bad.
