Around the Network

this will be interesting

Edit - giving my 2 cents on the matter

i dont think anything can beat "saving the industry" so im going to say nintendo, also nintendo has been in the market for much longer than sony and ms so it has had more time to impact the industry more. however, i do think that since Sony entered the market, Sony has done more for the industry

 The One and Only


All of them are good. Depends on each person

Nintendo. Nothing beats playing 1080p games in a Tablet.

Nintendo no contest.

Around the Network
All of those 3 have pushed gaming in every generation.

I think Nintendo did the heaviest lifting with saving gaming and creating Gaming God "Mario"
But Sony and Microsoft have andvanced gaming in the last 3 generations. I think those all where so fucking important for the industry and anybody who comes and tries do downplay the achievements of any of those companies should go and fuvk themeself

I won't quantify my opinion with a list, but in my view that honor goes to grand daddy Nintendo with the big bad wolf that is Sony coming in second. Microsoft should be commended as well. They did push the online gaming element to higher heights.


Playstation = The Beast from the East

Sony + Nintendo = WIN! PS3 + PSV + PS4 + Wii U + 3DS


Top 10 Games of All Time

1. The Last of Us, 2. Journey, 3. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, 4. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, 5. Bioshock Infinite, 6. Zelda: Twilight Princess, 7. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, 8. Super Smash Bros. Brawl, 9. Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword, 10. Starcraft

Thats kind of unfair Sony and Nintendo are doing it for a much longer time. I mean no doubt was Nintendo the most important gaming company. But Microsoft revolutionized online and this should not be downplayed.
