Guess I'll go for the Knack dev. A pretty poor selection really though.

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018.

Here are a lot of medium devs... and then SquareEnix. Sorry, with this history of great games there really is no different choice.

3DS-FC: 4511-1768-7903 (Mii-Name: Mnementh), Nintendo-Network-ID: Mnementh, Switch: SW-7706-3819-9381 (Mnementh)

my greatest games: 2017, 2018, 2019

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

Eh... Bandai Namco I guess.

A close round, but gonna go with Square Enix. They've made too many of my favourite games for me to not vote for them.

Square for me. Too many years in the industry, too many all-time great games to ignore.

Bethesda. Hahhahaha.

It's KojimaPro for me, I mean, they managed to polish a half finished game and make it an actual good game under massive managment stress.

Where's Square Soft ? Ok. I'll vote for Platinum Games then :P

Went with Namco. Haven't played much of their recent offerings, but I used to adore their games. At the same time I loved Namco, I remember Bandai churning out games that ranged from average at best, to complete trash. Good enough.
