in order for them to be the best. They have to make the best games. Which I'd say not really close though I do love gears.
Makers of the current best engine. the "Unreal 3.0" I'd probably agree with off the top of my head. And they have consistently made great engines... so if that's what your basing it on, maybe....
Even if they are nice to their fans. Better games matter more than if I like them individually... or if they listen to many fans who often don't realize the possible negative engine consequences of wanting something.
Just like for music etc. Just because my friend does music and listens to me doesnt mean I think he's the best musician.
Kojima Productions Or Bioware.
And if you have to include Konami as a whole, they were the last 2 gens, or close. but then this gen. No. It would be just bioware for me.
