I don't think it's fair to compare when Bungie only claim to fame is Halo....and that has ye to be replicated

Bungie? No.

The closest analog to Pixar in the games industry would probably be Valve. Valve is the place where all the top talent in the industry strives to be.

This will be interesting, especially since many people consider Nintendo the Pixar of video games

I have never once heard anybody say that.

When I think of the "Pixar of videogames", I think of Insomniac's Ratchet and Clank.
