Best Developer

This is probably a question directed towards gamers but who is your favorite games developer?

Mine growing up was obviously Nintendo with Zelda, Mario Bros, Metroid. Also Capcom with Mega Man, Street Fighter, etc. Then EA was great with their sports series until they just started recycling. Valve was great with Half Life which is a top 3 game ever. Now I must say it is back to Nintendo. They seem to just make fun games and since I don't get to hang out with friends as much as I do with being married, I only play games by myself. The new Zelda game blew me away and I am eagerly waiting for the new Metroid, SMB along with other fun single player games.

Blizzard.

Their delays are epic, but when they do put out a game, it's almost always golden. Often their games are looked on as the best of their genre when they come out. The Diablo series was the pinacle of Hack and Slash, Starcraft still has an amazing following years after it came out, and WoW recently hit 8,000,000 players worldwide. They just know what it takes to make gamers happy.

Yeah you are right. They should have been on my list even though I don't play their games.

Microprose was the shiznit back in the early '90s.

That's over 100 million in revenue a month. Over 1 billion a year. And growing. They have really put mmorpgs on the map in a big way.

It will be interesting to see how many WoW subscribers the next generation of mmorpgs will steal. We're looking at Age of Conan, Warhammer, Lord of the Rings, Stargate Worlds etc. Great time to be a gamer.

As long as they keep providing the great service that they are atm, I don't see it being an issue.
