Around the Network

one word: POKEMON!!!

There's only one choice here, it's gotta be Rockstar North. They're absolute legends!

Gotta Catch'em All!!

You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

Game Freak easily, as much as they get flack today for Let's Go they've proven countless times to be able to make great RPGs

Around the Network

Bandai Namco.

Tekken is hands down the best fighting game series of all time in my opinion (Never getting to play any Virtua Fighter remains one of my major gaming sins!) Soulcalibur, Ace Combat and Tales are good as well. But those four apart, Namco doesn't have much else that appeals to me, and Bandai is nonexistent in my mind.

Ubisoft Montreal has made a lot of questionable stuff, but its output in the 6th gen I think pushes it ahead.

Well, some good developers with great series right there, but no one has the history and the amount of good games as BandaiNamco, so it is no contest.

my greatest games: 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020

10 years greatest game event!

bets: [peak year] [+], [1], [2], [3], [4]

For nostalgia's sake, I am going with Crystal Dynamics for this round.

This was between Namco and Clover Studios for me, but I guess Clover didn't have a long enough existence to get the vote here, while Namco has series like Tekken, Soul Calibur and Tales that are among my favourites in their respective genres.
