Are these the best reviewed games? Most recent?

It appears to be most recent.

What is XGS?

edit: Aha, didn't know that was a thing or that those companies were part of it.

The only games I'd consider playing of those are from Obsidian. So the correct answer is Obsidian.

If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

That's actually a good looking portfolio... for the most part.

Rare definitely released more than two games since nuts and bolts.

Had to look that up, but I think just the Kinect Sports stuff. Which is 3 separate games? I refuse to go back to Wikipedia. Lol. Still, the list seems to be made to represent the most recent releases.

But... it doesn't... Kinect Sports should be on there.  I know off the top of my head that Ninja Theory did DMC after enslaved and I'm 100% positive that Doublefine has made more than 3 games since the PS2.

Yeah, you're right he did miss some some games, and so did I. I see Double Fine made Costume Quest? Now there's a question I would never have gotten on Jeopardy. InExile is also missing a VR game from it's list. I guess the studios with small portfolios are most recent by default, and Obsidian looks accurate, as the the only game missing is one they assisted on. But yes, definitely missing some games from each studio if recent history was the criteria for the games listed.

I wanted to focus on major games and released relatively recently. If you think that some games should still be on the list, I will add them.

For now I added DmC, Kinect Sports Games and Costume Quest 1 and 2. I don't add VR games because there is no technology support at the moment.
