Top Ten Best Video Game Developers


The Contenders: Page 4XW


Made Far Cry and Crysis. Two phenomenal games and improved a lot of mechanics of games such as Stealth, Hit detection, and storyline.

They developed the amazing game Crysis in 2007 which has a superior quality of graphics till today.

The Crysis was crashed the video gaming industry. They really made a good game! And CryEngine is amazing!

These guys made the burnout games so they need to be wayy higher on the list!


They may be new to the scene, but both their games have been masterful. They aren't ready to be considered one of the best yet, but they certainly deserve the mention.


This isn't really a game developer, anyway. It is really a website that everyone can post their submissions on.


When I say Atlus, the first thing that pops up in everyone's head is "Shin Megami Tensei / Persona". But there's another game by Atlus that I really like. It's a puzzle game for the SNES called Pieces.

The Persona Games are probably the most addicting games ever. SO much to the story and so many plot twists

People don't vote for them because they haven't been exposed to the Shin Megami Tensei series. What a pity. :'( - Zeebs

Trauma Center and Catherine are the most awesome games made by Atlus as well as Persona.

DICE is the best company I've ever seen in my life, they designed Battlefield, Mirror's Edge and much more!

DICE ought to be much higher on the list, at least in the top 25. The Battlefield series has turned DICE into an FPS powerhouse, and with the hype of Battlefield 1, the only direction this company is going is up.

68Yandere Dev

One Of The Smartest Developers And One Who Listens To Its Fans. Definitely Could Be One Of The Best. - ItsHighNoon

The only reason he is suck a jerk n9w is that he litterally had been losing sanity (probably one of the reasons why the new stuff in the game is so dark like kokona butning to death and the sanity animations)

69Natsume Inc.
70Quantic DreamQuantic Dream SA is a French video game developer based in Paris, France, founded in 1997. The company also supplies motion capture services to the film and video game industries.

The perfect balance between games and movies. Their videogames are always a masterpiece.

71Riot Games

Currently develops the most successful and market breaking game in the world. It's focus on player experience as a primary goal puts Riot on par with Valve and Blizzard.

Since they released League of Legends, it became a superior game developer. They are unique in every way.

Age of Empires 2 and 3 were both phenomenal, and Age of Mythology was really good too. They only made 5 games before bought by Microsoft, but those 5 were among the best strategy games of all time.

Developed Age of Empires and Age of Mythology Ensemble are awesome!

Made my favorite games of all time (Europa Universalis 4, Hearts of iron 4 etc etc) and listens extremely well to its community. Deserves first place if you ask me.

Actually cares about costumers
