IMO, ND is up there.....

Same here... and I also have to agree with Valve.  I do find the question has merit, though what's it doing in the Last of Us forum I'm not sure, but how much of a track record does a company need? (343 studios have pretty much made one game...  Isn't it too early to tell?)  How much should failed last games hurt a company like Bioware and Gearbox?  Also many developers are question marks now...  Infinity Ward, Bungie, Relic, etc, have all faced major changes of late... 



I guess if I really had to chose one it would be Turn 10 Studios...  Every release has been a commercial success, a ratings darling (they've never had a game avg less than 90 on metacritic), they been around for nearly a decade, and truth be told any one who can make a racer that my wife can enjoy and actually get a car around the track at a decent clip and appeal to me, someone far more hardcore, knows how to make a game appeal to a wide audience without alienating anyone...  That's no easy task.


Edit: I didn't list Rockstar... Though they could easily be listed I just find two of the last three games (GTAIV, RDR) to be a bit overlong...  Side activites are fun, and their was plenty of them to do, so why do I have so many fetch quests in the main storyline?

Not only does Rockstar make some of the best singleplayer experiences with tons of things to do in their world, but they make great sp dlc and expansion packs.  They are organized.  An example is they will give you a date, and on that date they say they will give you a trailer.  And it happens.  ND on the other hand, "well its coming very soon" 

 

Rockstar puts a game out almost every year, and I have yet to dislike one of their games, ND? eh not so much

EA and Activision are publishers, not developers. Plus they both suck.

EA has been handed a 'worst company in America' award two years in a row or something, so they are in the top 5, sure - top 5 worst companies

Nope. Creative? Yes. Communicates well? NO. Has an understanding of what the fan base wants? NO. Technically support their own games? Not really when you think about UC3, despite 17 patches or whatever. Beta test their MPs properly? NO. Have their heads WAY up their arses? YES.
