Around the Network

Sony Santa Monica Studio God Of War was such a fun and engaging game made me feel like I was gaming again for the first time. The last time I enjoyed a game this much was when Metal Gear Solid released in 1998.

Persona 5 is too much of a masterpiece to not vote for atlus

I'm annoyed I only found this series in round 7 and it contain 4 of my favourite developers.

Well I honestly don't know which to vote for. Don't have much experience with an of those games except Twisted Metal, and I'm not sure which game they developed. My vote is up for auction: Tell me why Metroid is the greatest series of all time and if I like your response you can have my vote.

Namco Tales Studio.


Level 5 close second.

My experience with Atlus is heavily inconsistent. 

I’ll always love Ion Storm for Deus Ex, but Atlas has my vote this round.

Tight race between Level-5 and Atlus ... but I ultimately have too much love for the Shin Megami Tensei series (Persona excluded) and Etrian Odyssey to not give them the win.

Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

The Shin Megami Tensei, Devil Summoner, Etrian Odyssey, and Persona games (among others) all give my vote to Atlus this round.

Difficult choice for me between Ion Storm and Looking Glass, they both made some of my favourite games, I liked Terra Nova, Ultima Underworld I, System Shock II and Thief III very much, and Deus Ex and Thief I and II immensely.
