The Top 10 First and Second Party Studios: Nintendo

Koku Gamer writes: "Love them or hate them, you can't deny that Nintendo has brought the some of the most loved and greatest franchises to our comfortable living rooms. With stars like Mario, Zelda, and Metroid all in their roster you can't help but applaud them for these games. But what about the developers that actually made these games? Today we will be listing Nintendo's top ten first and second party developers.(Note: some developers on this list may be defunct now.)" (Donkey Kong Barrel Blast, Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, GameCube, Golden Sun, Metroid M: Other, Nintendo DS, Pokemon Platinum, Punch-Out!!, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Wii)

Nice Article
I like these top ten things. Makes me think who I would put on the list.

I like the Pokemon handheld games so im glad that the developer was so high on the list.

Edit: Just read the article. Its pretty well writen for a game site article., im going to have to visit more. Can't wait for the Microsoft and Sony articles he said he was going to make. I wonder who will be number one for Sony and Microsoft.

As much as I dislike Nintendo
You really do have to give props to #1 and #2 on that list. They have created some truly remarkable games, especially on the sales front. Looking at some of the games they created reminded me how old I really am.....

Completely agree. True driving forces for Nintendo.

It seems as if the only party that get's Nintendo software sales is the first party as you mention in the article. Metroid Prime, SuperSmash Brawl as well as Pokemon, those sell millions of copies and Mario as well, if it wasn't for those or the internal studio to develop them, I'm not sure how this system would do software sales wise. Unlike the PS3 and Xbox 360 the Wii does not have too many big hitter besides the three obvious. Mario, Zelda and Pokemon.

Million selling third parties:

Resident Evil 4 (last I checked outsold Metroid)
Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles
Call of Duty 3
Call of Duty World at War
House of the Dead 2 and 3 Return
Red Steel
Guitar Hero III
Guitar Hero World Tour
Deca Sports
Tiger Woods 08/09 Titles
Lego Star Wars (also top 360 seller before I get any smart ass cracks)
Lego Indiana Jokes
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

I left out the embarassing mini-games and kid titles. There were a few of em. This was an arbitrary cutoff and naturally as you get just under the million mark there are a lot more games represented.

Nintendo's first party is great and that's why I recently purchased a wii. I know a lot of people say it's not a real gaming console etc. but I've been having a lot of fun with some of the wii games I missed. I would say that Nintendo and Sony are tied when it comes to first party with MS in very, very distant second.

Now a list of sony 1st party devs.
Redempteur  +   2391d ago
False !!!
there is no pokemon white or pokemon black

yet ....

10th should have been 5th and 5th should have been 6th

other than that good list
EvilTwin  +   2391d ago
Not a bad list, but I would've put Retro much higher.

...and why is their clip Other M? Team Ninja is working on that.
Etseix  +   2391d ago
thats what i was thinking :S
PshycoNinja  +   2391d ago
Didn't Ninitendo
say at their E3 Press conferance that Team Ninja was working with another Nintendo studio to work on the game.

I mean that what I think when I see in the trailer: Team Ninja + Nintendo
A HiFi  +   2391d ago
Yeah, they are working with it not Retro?
Smacktard  +   2391d ago

"They have made such titles like: DK: King of Swing, DK: Jungle Climber, Donkey Kong Barrel Blast, and many other smaller games."

Sounds like a load of crud to me.

Genius Sonority isn't that great either.

The others are absolutely fantastic.
