This week the Gamer Horizon crew list off their all time favorite video game development studios.
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. 1.Nintendo 2.Rockstar 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.
i am 25 year old i am not a kid anymore nintendo games are good when u r kid
Sorry when was the last time Valve made a game?
L4D games, Portal games, CS:GO, Dota 2
DOTA 2 is def in the top 5 games this year.
Sony Santa Monica ahead of any of Nintendo's lead dev teams. You've been drinking too much of the kool-aid, son.
Mine: 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. :/
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 2.Nintendo 3.Squaresoft (not enix) 4.Valve 5.Naughty Dog Man imagine if Rare was still as strong with all the same devs making games today. That would be amazing.
1: Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio 2: Nippon Ichi Software 3: Insomniac 4: Valve 5: Gust Can't go wrong with those devs
Not current but my all time favorite (in no particular order) 1. Nintendo 2. Atlus 3. Sega AM2 4. Konami 5. SNK
Sega AM2 are my all time favourite development studio. Virtua Fighter, Outrun, and my favourite game of all time - Shenmue.
Thanks all for reading and commenting! I can't believe none of us picked Valve!
Yeah. :( I wanna change my list!!!
Love discussing all-time favorites! All-Time: Currently: 1. Nintendo 1. Rockstar 2. Squaresoft 2. Bethesda 3. Bethesda 3. Nintendo 4. Factor-5 4. Naughtydog 5. Rockstar 5. Take-Two
So do I but It looks like someone out there hates everyones lists.
It's because we don't have any Sony exclusive studios as #1.
Naughty Dog is my number one.
Its a hard list, i would say Inhouse Nintendo and Blizzard for sure. anything else would be reeeeally difficult to decide. If i had to pick individual guys i would say Kojima, Tetsuya nomura, Aonuma,takahasi, and Miyamoto.
My TOP 5: 1.Sony Studios (Team ICO/Sony Santa Monica/Naughty Dog and the others) 2.Capcom 3.Bethesda 4.From Software 5.Namco Bandai Games and Konami runners-up: Monolith Soft; ThatGameCompany; Irrational Games and Platinum Games
almost all of them are publisher...
It doesn't matter if they develop or publish the games, many things that you can associate with them are excellent.
My top 5 Platinum Games\Clover Nintendo Konami\Kojima Suda51\Grasshopper Old Rare
I would have to go with Valve Team17 (Worms series) Raven Software (SoF2, great online game) ID Software Rockstar Most of above would be from older titles they made, to be my favorite.
lol everyone knows LJN is the best. /s
1)Nintendo 2)Old Squaresoft 3)Naughty Dog 4)Bioware 5)Valve
Off the top of my head and i'm sorry to be forgetting a few: 1)Classic Nintendo Studios 2)Classic Rareware 3)Classic Capcom studios. 4) Classic Squaresoft 5) Sony first/second party studios Valve is disqualified(for now) for wanting me to login every time to play my Steam games. I'm also forgetting probably dozens of studios that deserve to be mentioned. I hope their influnce lives on as we enter the next golden age of gaming.
Nintendo EAD Game Freak Platinum Games Atlus Nintendo's Rare
I'd have liked to see CD Projekt Red on there somewhere
At E3, CD Projekt Red got us beer. When their demo crashed, we got more beer.
Funny that you mention CD Projekt Red... I mentioned them in my contribution for next week's list. That will be on the site on 11/14. You're right though, they're an excellent developer, assuming you appreciate their post release content and patches instead of blaming them for releasing their games too early! Either way, their games are great.
with all the hit games they have, nintendo will always be number one with me!
