*Only counting Developers. If a developer also acts as publisher, then only the games said company has developed will be counted!

I play a-lot of video games. Naturally, I'm bound to have some favorite companies that I eagerly keep both of my eyes open for their latest releases.

While I've played games from hundreds of developers and publishers, and I like almost all of them, these 50 remain my absolute favorites - regardless of their failures, defunct status and/or other reasons that might lean in the negative!

Personal bias and the fog of nostalgia was left at the doorstep at the time of making this list. So anytime you feel I'm being unfair or confusing, try to pay respect and be constructive in your criticism!

Note: The list is NOT ranked!

A sister list - Top 50 Favorite Video Game Designers - is in the works, and it will include designers, programmers, writers, illustrators and the like. Be sure to tune in to check it out!

Thank you. Enjoy :)

i'm a big fan of Ubisoft (Tom Clancy's End War & Far Cry 3) Bethesda (Fallout 3 - Skyrim)

Ubisoft is cool, but my computer hates their games - and I'm talking about the games made by the Montreal division. From the subdivisions, Montpellier is my most favorite :)
