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?”
Naughty Dog all the way.
A lot of people would certainly agree with that on N4G.
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.
The Holy Trinity. Naughty Dog From Software Kojima.
Bioware: - Mass Effect - Dragon Age - Baldur's Gate - SWTOR - Jade Empire
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
They've made plenty of games in the past 8 years. Just haven't followed up on a cliffhanger ending.
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.
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)
Haha what would the title of their next game be?
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
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.
I can finally say this, because they are a multi-plat developer now, Bungie Studios!
Epic games and naughty dog
For me, it's a tie between Rockstar and Naughty Dog.
if they made a game together...i dont even...im not even going to type anym..
""For me, it's a tie between Rockstar and Naughty Dog."" this guy ...also Sony santa monica
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!
For me, Persona devs, Pentavision Global, Sony Santa Monica and Shinji Mikami. Edit: Forgot Rockstar, Quantic Dream and Naughty Dog, doh!
CD Projekt RED, Platinum Games, Epic games, Kojima, Polyphony Digital, id Software, Nintendo.
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.
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.
I see you edited but anyways it was Bullfrog who did Theme Hospital
Quantic Dream Honourable mentions go to- Naughty Dog Sony Santa Monica Rockstar
1. Ubisoft 2. Naughty Dog
depends on the mood i supose... i'll say "That game company"
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.
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.
Ubisoft ( AC is my fav franchise...Splinter Cell isnt far behind) 343 Industries (can't wait to see what they do with Halo next gen) Sony Santa n Naughty Dog
Naughty Dog Sony Santa Monica Sucker Punch
SSM, ND, SP, Sony Japan
oh god,thats an amazing company,XD
NaughtyDog (crash,last of us,jak&daxter,uncharted) Insomniac (ratchet&clank up till CiT,spyro) suckerpunch (infamous,sly) Ubisoft (Prince of Persia,AC2-BrHd,BG&E,SC,Ra yman) Nintendo (Zelda,Smash Bros,Metroid,Donkey Kong) Platinum Games (Bayonetta,Madworld,MGRR,Vanqu ish) Honorable Mention Vigil Games (Darksiders)
Tough choice! There are really so many, they are all great in their own way.
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).
In no particular order Cd project red Kojima productions. Valve Naughty Dog And only because the HOTS story was bloody amazing : Blizzard
Squaresoft and Rare.
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.
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.
Bethesda, with bugs and all. I've put over 200 hours into each of their games since TES3.
Shigeru Miyamoto Eiji Aonuma (Zelda) Masahiro Sakurai (Smash Bros) Keiji Inafune (MegaMan) Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil, Viewtiful Joe, Devil May Cry) Tetsuya Takahashi (Xenoblade, Xenogears, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VII) So many, Don't listen to these noobs saying Rockstar, Naughty Dog, Bioware, Bethesda, etc. those are garbage.
What? All of those devs have been making high quality games for more than ten years.
Nintendo PlatinumGames Grasshopper Manufacture Rockstar Epic Games
It's hard to say one.. I'll say 3 better: Platinum Games\Clover Suda51 Nintendo
Nintendo and Ubisoft
now that's a hard pick. R*, Atlus, BioWare, Nintendo,Kojima, Naughty Dog, Bethesda, Blizzard, Level-5, Bungie, GameFreak. and even Capcom and Square Enix when they still cared
Camelot: Shining Force + Golden Sun.
Bungie, Ubisoft Montreal, Rockstar, Valve,Epic, From Software... I can't decide on one
