Omega Force didn't win the last poll? Why, were people really high the last couple days or something?

EA Vancouver for this one. They've won Ka-Pi96's official GOTY the last two years running, and that's the only GOTY that really means anything too!

Treasure all the way, Mischief Makers, Sin & Punishment, Guardian Heroes, Gunstar Heroes, Ikaruga, Alien Soldier, Wario World, Light Crusader, full of enough variety and some fast paced action and wacky storylines makes this company one of my absolute favorite ones.


Intelligent Systems hasn't lived up recently to the quality I expect from them (since like Super Paper Mario and Radiant Dawn), not to say they are making bad games, I still enjoy Fire Emblem and Paper Mario but they haven't been their better games in a while, with the recent exception of WarioWare Gold, that game was amazing and to an extent Fates, mostly talking about Conquest since it had the best gameplay and level design from FE.

Capcom I don't like as a company even if they have some series I enjoy, Monster Hunter, Megaman and Ace Attorney, half of Devil May Cry, the good Dead Rising games (RIP) and some forgotten one off titles like Ghost Trick and Viewtiful Joe. 

R* San Diego > Ubisoft Quebec > Frontier > Intelligent Systems > Capcom > Valve > Criterion. Not really all that familiar with the others.

R* San Diego- These guys developed my favorite game of all-time RDR1 and co-developed RDR2 which I am currently playing and loving. Easy first pick.

Ubisoft Quebec- These guys developed or co-developed numerous game that I loved or liked, multiple AC games (including lead development on AC Syndicate and AC Odyssey), For Honor, and South Park The Fractured But Whole.

Frontier- These guys are the all-time best at making sim games, the old Roller Coaster Tycoon games were brilliant, and Jurassic World Evolution is alot of fun as well.

Intelligent Systems- A recent addition to my list of favorite developers, I had never played any of their games until Fire Emblem Fates, which I loved. Really looking forward to the new FE next year.

Capcom- I am far from the biggest Capcom fan, I mainly only like Resident Evil, and sorta like Megaman and Dead Rising, that is it. Street Fighter sucks, and I haven't really tried any of their others games. Resident Evil is god enough though to earn them a 4th place spot this round though.

Criterion- Criterion is kind of overrated, alot of people think they are the best arcade Racing devs of all-time. I disagree though because both Playground Games (Forza Horizon) and EA Black Box (NFS Underground 1 and 2) were/are better. Burnout is kind of cool, but not that great.

Valve- I'm not exactly a big Valve fan. Never liked Left4Dead, Half Life, Dota, Team Fortress, or Counterstrike. Portal is kind of cool, but considering how long we've been waiting for a 3rd game in any of their series, they deserve a low spot, they only care about Steam revenue these days and give zero shits about delivering highly anticipated sequels to their old series.

Had to go with Capcom. They've been making great games for over 30 years and many favorites of mine (Resident Evil 4, Mega Man 2, Mega Man X4, Devil May Cry, Street Fighter II, Street Fighter IV)

Signature goes here!

Even with some franchises that I truly love, I can't bring myself to vote for Capcom.

Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

To me only R* and Capcom were relevant on this list.

duduspace11 "Well, since we are estimating costs, Pokemon Red/Blue did cost Nintendo about $50m to make back in 1996"

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"

Azzanation: "PS5 wouldn't sold out at launch without scalpers."

I have to go with Capcom. It’s been developing great games for 30+ years.

Even though Capcom has done a lot of questionable stuff over the years, I still can't go against them here. They've made too many great games over several decades for anyone else on that poll to get a vote from me.

Intelligent Systems. Love me some FE and AW.

I used to be a huge Capcom fan, but considering their output volume, I haven't bought or played much from them in quite a while. I Thiiiink Lost Planet on the XB360 was the last game of theirs that I loved. Have SF IV on the PS3 but couldn't get into it, same with the PSN Bionic Commando. I have Bionic Commando 2 as well, but have never tried it. Most recently, I gave Monster Hunter World a shot. Ehhh....It wasn't bad or anything but it definitely wasn't for me. I buy a fair amount of software, but I think those 4 games represent my entire Capcom purchase history for the last decade. They've really fallen off my radar.


- Oh shi****t! Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen on PS3. I LOVED it so much. Forgot about that one. Have the PS4 remaster too. Still would have voted for Intelligent Systems though.
