Around the Network

Very difficult round, couldn't decide between Rockstar North, Guerilla Games and Ubisoft Montreal but I think Rockstar North deserves it the most.

A bunch of great studios here but Nintendo EPD (and EAD before it) is just too good.

Nintendo for me. Toughest round by far but at the end of the day no contest for me.

My vote goes to Atlus, even though they're not gonna win lol.

"Just for comparison Uncharted 4 was 20x bigger than Splatoon 2. This shows the huge difference between Sony's first-party games and Nintendo's first-party games."

I voted for Nintendo because how could I not but I'll be sad to see Blizzard Entertainment fall.

Signature goes here!

This is gonna be the end of the road for Level-5, but I'm still gonna vote for them here.

Easily Rockstar North. Far and away the best dev in the world right now as far as I'm concerned.

My love for the games Ninty EPD has done ... it's probably too big that I can't simply choose Atlus just for liking their RPG's

Rockstar for me. They've still 'got it', so although Blizzard made my second favourite game (StarCraft: Brood War), what they've done to that series and the Diablo series since makes it hard to vote for them.
