my top 5 would maybe be like this:

1. Valve
2. Naughty Dog
3. Rockstar Games
4. Kojima Productions
5. Sony Santa Monica


Have you played anything by nintendo EAD?

I think we would all put Nintendo in the top ten, at least. It's just hard for me to do that, given that their teams switch around so much.

No Order my top. Can't think of 5 to Hard.

3.Sony-Naughty dog,Santa Monica,London etc...

It's 2013. Nintendo was at their best 2 decades ago.
I DEFINITELY would put them in the Top 10, but there are game developers out there making more immersive and innovative games today. I'm not gonna rob developers of the credit they deserve because of what Nintendo did years ago.

Also Nintendo EAD is made up of multiple teams(5 or 6) responsible for different games. That's like me giving credit to Worldwide Studios as a whole. I'd be ganging up on the rest. Ok, even if that doesn't make much sense, it's time to take off the nostalgia goggles.

Yes, but I don't play on Nintendo platforms that much these days, I know the Mario platformers and Zelda adventure games are all amazing, it's just so many of them.

Sorry when was the last time Valve made a game?

ShinMaster1629d ago

L4D games, Portal games, CS:GO, Dota 2

_QQ_1629d ago

DOTA 2 is def in the top 5 games this year.

stragomccloud1629d ago

Sony Santa Monica ahead of any of Nintendo's lead dev teams. You've been drinking too much of the kool-aid, son.

WeAreLegion1629d ago


1. Naughty Dog
2. Valve
3. Rare (The original Rare)
4. Rockstar
5. Bethesda

I'd like to add Sucker Punch, but they need more games under their belt.

Clover almost made it, too. :/

gedden71629d ago

Well then that list is HORRIBLE..

1. Nintendo
2. Naughty Dog
3. Ubisoft
4. Crytek
5. Sony Santa Monica

All these "game" devs are known to have great quality in multiple games that they make not just one game or series...

Each i could name about about 2-4 GREAT games that are separate IPs..

Interesting how different everyone's list in the article was.
My personal opinion:

1.Classic Rare
3.Squaresoft (not enix)
5.Naughty Dog

Man imagine if Rare was still as strong with all the same devs making games today. That would be amazing.

ThePsychoGamer1629d ago (Edited 1629d ago )

1: Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio
2: Nippon Ichi Software
3: Insomniac
4: Valve
5: Gust

Can't go wrong with those devs
