Top 4 proceed to the quarter finals, the others are eliminated.

Toss up between Sony Japan and Sucker Punch. Knack vs Infamous... a toughy for sure!

Gotta go Konami again; too many classics to ignore.

Polyphony Digital for me. I know they've only produced Gran Turismo (there are a few other titles, but I guess they are not relevant), but they were the first to introduce the 'semi-sim' racing simulator genre on the console market.

Now things are going to get a lot more divided in this phase.

A lot of great developers here. This is a really difficult choice actually. I guess I'll go with Sucker Punch, though it's a really close call for me.

Bandai Namco by a hair. I really wanted to vote for Konami though.

I picked Bandai Namco.

Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

And it shows. The poll is almost even when it comes to 3rd/4th place.
