Psygnosis only makes the list if you consider not just game development but game dev tools development as well. Their strength was always in creating top-tier dev tools for Sony, NOT actually making games (which were VERY hit or miss. For every Wipeout they would also inevitably release a piece of freaking TRASH as well!), which was a CRITICAL part in the OG PlayStation's absolutely GARGANTUAN levels of immediate success.Cd project red,
Maxis, lionhead Studios, mojang ... sid meier. Psygnosis, atari it's a tough topic.
That is true, although Blizzard pioneered online play in the masses with battlenet back in the day. There was no system quite like it for online play at the time. As a person who played online in the early 2000s, they were one of the first (if not the first) to build a major online gaming platform.The fact that you have Blizzard on here instead of Firaxis is insane.
I'm not saying that Naughty Dog isn't a good company or does not make good titles. What I'm saying is that they have not contributed to gaming history as much as Sega has.Wow, dismissing the complete Crash / Uncharted / The Last of Us franchises? Pretty much anything they do is a masterpiece.
Sega, on the other hand, made around 50 franchises, of which only Sonic is a memorable one.
What about coleco?In no particular order. The top developers for me or the ones that developed titles I mostly enjoyed throughout my 35 years of gaming are
Square Soft aka Square Enix
Konami before the Kojima fallout
Sony Computer Entertainment
Sega before they exited the console hardware market
Other notable mentions are
Platinum Games/Clover Studios
SCE Santa Monica Studio
Nintendo still puts out quality games but their corporate conduct is, if anything, almost worse than EA's. They go out of their way to level unusual punishment on ROM distributors (even for games which are long out of production and unavailable by any other means besides grey market), spam spurious DMCA claims liberally on YouTubers that deal with their content, and generally treat the competitive Smash community like garbage. The Stockholm syndrome of their fans is the most powerful in gaming.Nintendo being of the few that have maintained quality throughout their existence.
Yup. Those are not significant contributors to gaming history.Wow, dismissing the complete Crash / Uncharted / The Last of Us franchises?
That's an opinion. Not everyone shares it.Pretty much anything they do is a masterpiece.
That is patently false and you are nitpicking. Do stop..Sega, on the other hand, made around 50 franchises, of which only Sonic is a memorable one.
