Ripten lists its top ten developers of all time, moving in stealth for the kill at #5 with Ubisoft.
(reply)damm i 4got about them
naughty dog and nintendo
because im playing super mario galaxy
right now its allllllsome
dont forget about naughty dog........it has just as good of a chance as any of those
kk dude...im all for Sony..but give respect where it's due..
#1- Nintendo..without a doubt in my mind...
Insomniac..naughty dog..Bungie...will not be on the list...and I doubt ROCKSTAR will be number 2 or even on the list either GTA franchise can't justify them biegn great developers. Capcom will be #2...and I think SEGA..should have been in the top 3..and I bet there gonna put EA in the top 3..hmmm..!!!
@ xplosneer - I said that I think SEGA should have been a lil higher on the list...
will likely make the cut
Twisted Metal...Syphon Filter.....God Of War....man you guys are low.
I think EA and SEGA were already put on the list (>5)
Comment from the writer regarding some of the comments being made about Sega and Square and their placement on the list...
"Thanks for the comment ASDF. Although we all have our opinions on who should take the crown for best developer ever, be sure that it was not easy choosing the order. The variety of games, importance to the industry and evolution of gameplay all had to be taken into consideration. With the hundreds (possibly thousands) of developers out there, I think its fair to say that even making the top 10 is an amazing feat in and of itself. Both Sega and Square made the cut, and I hope you keep reading to see which one will take the prize.
Links to the others on the list so far....
#8 Square Enix
I will officially say this is the worst list of probably all time. Space Channel 5, Rez, Jet set radio, Samba de Amigo, Shenmue, Virtual Fighter, Virtual Tennis, Sonic, Skies of Arcadia, Streets of Rage, Nights into dreams, panzer dragoon, Star wars the arcade game, and golden axe. Compared to what? Prince of Persia, beyond good and evil, rayman, and Splinter Cell. And an upcoming game that we don't even know how good it is.
Ubi's made some great games, but SEGA and Lucasarts are far greater than what they have done.
uve not been in gaming long enough that why u new comer ubisoft=assasins creed/thief 3GREAT GAME/splinter cell franchise great game/DUEX ex 1 of the best games of all time and many more amazing games buy ubisoft
Rockstar and Bungie should not and will not make this list.
Not enough great games by either one of them.
It's like some of you were born in the late 90s.
well when you have people on this site thinking that the PS2 was the pinnacle of gaming I too think that a lot of the people on this site are just kids and wouldn't know classic games if it bit them on the arse!
And then Square.
and much more
no... no they are not.
Someone has to be extremely ignorant to fail to see what Sony has contributed to gaming.

quantity over quality 100% of the time.
Two great games, yes. Not nearly enough though.
Team Ico doesn't count because they're with SCEA. It would be Sony winning that one. That's Team Ico, Santa Monica (GOW), SCEE, SCEJ, SCEA, and a million others that DESTROY everyone else.
Can't remember last time they did a bad port....if at all.
Good on you frenchies for not picking sides.
I should say "deliberately" make a bad port.....cough, cough EA.
um, see early ps3 ports.. splinter cell, rainbow six...
Splinter Cell was a first time effort on a radically new machine - steep learning curve.
RB6 wasn't too bad. They would have gained more experience with the Ps3
Now look at GRAW. Perfect. They have mastered the beast.
Hopefully all that experience will be passed onto their developers of Haze, Assassins, Endwar etc.
8. Ocean Software
9. Naughty Dog
i have to say...
will make up the last 5.
Lately, I'd go with Sony. They have more original IP's than anyone.
Don't forget Blizzard maybe in the 1st or 2nd
If its that way sum1 better gimme a cookie
warcraft is an amazing game tbh prolly the best game ever created \TO date but after playing 1year of that game and clearing ssc/TK/and hyjal/and half way throw black temple ii just stopped logging in as it took ove rmy li8fe that game did ppl in that game think ur an employee when ur ina high end guild and have to atend raids even tho u have irl stuff I LOVE WOW BUT to get intio a another mmo game will be dangerous tbh as all we ex wow players know.
This list is no longer relevant.
Ubisoft above SEGA?
i dont think another company has produced the level of quality and diversity as sega has over the years. This poll is one of those "of all times"
Ubisoft over Konami?
Metal gear solid
Zone of the enders
i mean i prefer what team ico are doing now over what idk capcom are doing, but looking at capcom's past portfolio makes it a more sensical contender for one of the top ten devs of all time.
this list smells.
if bungie are at the top...
They haven't listed Konami yet. So its quite possible for it to be in the top 5.
of course they are gonna get number 1 they are like the grand father of gaming
