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

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, 2020

10 years greatest game event!

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

Eh... Bandai Namco I guess.

"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."

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.

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.

Bethesda 1st
Platinum 2nd
Namco 3rd

I voted for Platinum. I loved Wonderful 101.
