In honor of the Game Developers’ Conference happening this week, we wanted to focus this Ask PSLS on the studios who make all the games we all enjoy playing. So, we asked the PSLS staff: “Who is Your Favorite Developer?”
- PSLS (God of War: Ascension, Naughty Dog, PC, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, PS4, Sony Santa Monica, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Naughty Dog all the way.
dbjj12088  +   486d ago
A lot of people would certainly agree with that on N4G.
guitarded77  +   486d ago
Should be agreed with on more than just n4g... Naughty Dog are great...

I also like...

That Game Company
R*
DICE
Guerrilla Games
Kojima
343 Industries has made an impression on me so far
Nintendo
Sony Santa Monica
Irrational Games
Media Molecule

I can't say any one is my favorite, but those are some I really like their work.

not that suprising. its a sony drone filled site

@ kamikazepikmin

I don't know where you get that idea from... n4g has a pretty good balance of multi-platform gamers with some zealots on every side. I frequent other sites too, and there are horrible people just out to troll... especially troll on Sony. Here everyone seems more even heeled.

The regulars here at n4g mostly game on more than one system, and are critical of each when the subject demands it. Your comment seems like you don't believe Naught Dog deserves the accolades it receives... but even if you don't like their games (for whatever strange reason), you must admit from a technical standpoint, the Uncharted series is a marvel of this generation.

A lot of people would agree with it on any website. Simply because they are super talented. Being on N4G has nothing to do with it.
Derekvinyard13  +   486d ago
Rockstar games

I have to agree with you on that. The Last of Us has me pumped up.
Right now the only developers I respect fully are Ubisoft because they are bringing WiiU good games like Black Flag and Watch Dogs and maybe Splinter Cell and Irrational because I'm playing BioShock right now on PC and that game is great. I'm kinda feeling Crystal Dynamics too... nice job with Tomb Raider but seriously... no WiiU???
EA is on my hate list seriously, Crysis 3, Dead Space and now BF4 not on WiiU.
I was going to buy BF4 too...
2K/Take-Two I'm pissed at them... they explictly said they aren't going to give WiiU a chance. Gearbox wanted to put Borderlands 2 on WiiU. Take Two is like hells naw. BioShock could been on WiiU but 2K was like naw man.
Rockstar if GTA V is not on WiiU I will hurt you...
and of course NINTENDO AND SONY

If only Valve could make games in under 8 years and weren't annoyingly secretive, they'd be number one
Ducky  +   486d ago
They've made plenty of games in the past 8 years.
Just haven't followed up on a cliffhanger ending.
coolbeans  +   486d ago
Exactly.
Off the top of my head:

Portal 1+2
Left 4 Dead 1+2
CS:GO
Half-Life 2: Episode 2
and Dota 2 (no official release date posted yet)

Not too bad of a list, if I do say so myself.
#2.1.1 (Edited 486d ago ) | Agree(1) | Disagree(3) | Report
Nyxus  +   486d ago
Kojima Productions.
Donnieboi  +   485d ago
Hell Yeah. For me it's Kojima Pro too, as well as:

--Atlus (SMT series, Persona, Catherine, too many other games)
--FromSoftware (Demon's souls, Armored Core, Tenchu, etc)
--Sony Japan studio (too many games to name!)
--Naughty Dog (Crash, Uncharted, Jak&Daxter, etc)
--Miyamoto (WAY too many games to mention)

naughtymonicadigital
TrendyGamers  +   486d ago
Haha what would the title of their next game be?
Why o why  +   486d ago
uncharted god..a spec edition

to be fair choosing my favourite dev is like choosing who my favourite child is. not a decision I'd like to make because they're all different and are important to me in different ways. please dont make me choose. .lol
#4.1.1 (Edited 486d ago ) | Agree(3) | Disagree(1) | Report
jakmckratos  +   486d ago
Naughty Dog and usuallllly Insomniac although they haven't made anything impressive since Resistance 3.. Fuse looks generic as hell and the last 2 ratchet entries were very disappointing...but every Ratchet(before All 4 One), Spyro and Resistance game the've made have been AMAZING.
HyperBear  +   486d ago
I can finally say this, because they are a multi-plat developer now, Bungie Studios!

StinKyNuGz  +   486d ago
Epic games and naughty dog
Oldman100  +   486d ago
For me, it's a tie between Rockstar and Naughty Dog.
NastyLeftHook0  +   486d ago
if they made a game together...i dont even...im not even going to type anym..
Ezz2013  +   486d ago
""For me, it's a tie between Rockstar and Naughty Dog.""

Sizzon  +   486d ago
My Top 5 would be:

1. Naughty Dog
2. Valve
3. Rockstar Games
4. Kojima Productions
5. Bungie

Irrational Games deserves a honourble mention tho, for making Bioshock and Bioshock Infinite! also SWAT 4 for the PC back in the day was awesome!
#9 (Edited 486d ago ) | Agree(3) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
TongkatAli  +   486d ago
For me, Persona devs, Pentavision Global, Sony Santa Monica and Shinji Mikami.

Edit: Forgot Rockstar, Quantic Dream and Naughty Dog, doh!

Gamer-40  +   486d ago
CD Projekt RED, Platinum Games, Epic games, Kojima, Polyphony Digital, id Software, Nintendo.
PHOSADRA  +   486d ago
I like a lot of games, but Naughty Dog has produced more games that I like than any other developer.
Based on that logic...
Squaresoft and Squareenix would be 2nd.
Magnus  +   486d ago
Gurilla, Quantic Dream, Namco, Level 5, Nintendo, Sega, Tt games, Bullfrog, Naughty Dog, Insomniac, Ninja Theory, Monolith, Konami, Aksys, Sammy, Double Fine, High Moon Studios because I love Transformers War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron games.

KingofGambling  +   486d ago
It's great to see one of the staff mention Konami and Suikoden that is by far my favorite JRPG franchise game of all time.
MysticStrummer  +   486d ago
Since they made Demon's Souls, my favorite game of all time, and Dark Souls, my second favorite game of all time, From Software is my answer.

Tough choice! There are really so many, they are all great in their own way.
Paul85  +   486d ago
Kojima productions
josephayal  +   486d ago
Capcom
Donnieboi  +   485d ago
Other than for the team that works on Monster Hunter, I'd have to say Capcom's dev teams suck lately. And don't even get me started on Capcom as a publisher (but I won't go there since we're talking about developers).

DudeJets  +   486d ago
In no particular order

Cd project red

Kojima productions.

Valve

Naughty Dog

And only because the HOTS story was bloody amazing : Blizzard
Tzunoy  +   486d ago
Squaresoft and Rare.
Donnieboi  +   485d ago
Are we in the same decade? I don't think that applies in the 21st century. The best members of those teams have long since left Square and Rare. The only things the new Square and Rare have with their past selves, is their respective company names. That's all.
LastXeno  +   486d ago
A lot of the N4G fan-base would either say some overrated studio such as Naughty Dog or RockStar however I'm going to say Miyamoto, the guy behind Zelda, Mario, Donkey Kong, and Star Fox.
NegativeCreepWA  +   486d ago
Bethesda, with bugs and all. I've put over 200 hours into each of their games since TES3.
