So this is my first attempt at a front-page poll tournament, to discover VGC's top 10 video game developers.

The first round will consist of a series of polls featuring 10 devs each. The 10 are chosen based on seedings, which were determined by how many lists each one featured on in this thread (so Nintendo was no.1 seed with 27 mentions, Monolith is currently no.2 with 16 mentions, and so on).

The two in each round that receive the most votes automatically go through to the next stage, while those in 3rd and 4th place will get a second chance in the bonus round.

These polls won't run the standard week like most (since there are going to be a lot of them, and if each one ran or a week the tournie would take forever to complete) - probably just a couple of days each instead. Will see how it goes.

The first 10:

Nintendo (Zelda, Mario Kart, Super Mario, Metroid, Star Fox series, etc. etc. etc.)
HAL Laboratory (Kirby, Mother/EarthBound, Super Smash Bros. series)
Kojima Productions (Metal Gear, Metal Gear Solid, and Metal Gear Acid series)
Relic Entertainment (Homeworld, Dawn of War, Company of Heroes series)
Ubisoft Montpellier (Rayman series, Beyond Good & Evil, 
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Assassin's Creed Odyssey)
Origin Systems (Ultima and Wing Commander series)
Arkane Studios (Dishonored series, 
BioShock 2, Prey (2017))
Polyphony Digital (Gran Turismo series)
Ensemble Studios (Age of Empires series, Halo Wars)
New World Computing (Heroes of Might and Magic series, King's Bounty, Planet's Edge)

P.S. There are still slots open for extra developers, so if you want to ensure your favourites are included please post your list here -
