Here is mine, purely based on the games output and my tastes obviously :)
S Tier: Bethesda, Obsidian, Playground Games, Inxile Entertainment
A Tier: 343 Industrie, The Coalition ,Ninja Theory ,Tango Gameworks , Turn 10, Arkane Studios
B Tier: Undead Labs, Mojang, ID Software
C Tier: Machine Games .Double Fine
D Tier: Compulsion , Roundhouse Studios, Alpha Dog, Zenimax Online
Bethesda, Inxile and Obsidian are by far the top 3 in my list, I do not think there is any games out there that I do not like from those studios.
Playground is also S because, even if I'm not playing the Horizon games that much, those games are just a gender-redifiner imo. They are just the best looking arcadish racing games out there.... I think what they did is exceptionnal.
For 343 industries, they came out with a lot of stuff, people should not just stick on one thing or two. Halo 5 was 'meh' (story wise) but the game was really good technically so I don't think this has to do with how good the studio is. And then before that I really like everything they did, I'm a Halo fan but I'm not a Bungie fan, they way Bungie per say. Looking at Halo Infinite so far, this is going to hit all my spots too, so yah maybe not S yet, but easily an A :)
