21 Irrational Games Irrational Games

An game company that revolutionized story telling, A.I. , and graphics that were amazing for the time.

A great company that gave us System Sock 2 and The Bioshock series.

Irrational knows how to make games. They take time with games and it shows. Truly, their games are the pinnacle of video games as an art form.

Creates truly unique FPS games with not only tight game play, but solid narratives. Never disappoints and can't wait to see what they have next in store.

22 Kojima Productions

Kojima should be right up there, at least at 3, you know a game developer is loyal to its customers when they literally were thinking about cancelling metal gear solid 5, but chose not to, saying "with mgs5 were taking quality over sales" not to mention metal gear solid is one of the gaming industries most respected franchises with one of if nit the best on-going story! Kudos to kojima and can't wait for mgs5!

Kojima should be at least 3rd or 4th, have you played any of their games?

Kojima was one of Konami's key developers. However, Konami fired him. Konami should be bankrupt and be abandoned for their such dumb actions.

METAL GEAR SOLID 3!

Mirror's edge, bf3 and 4 and now battlefront

This must go higher! Battlefield series, Mirror's Edge, and now STAR WARS!

Great multiplayer experience with their games! Awesome quality and game engine from these guys.

BF1942, boyfriend:Vietnam, BF2, and BF2142 still some of my favorite games ever made too bad EA ruined them.

24 Rocksteady

They gave batman games the justice they deserve. Great story, fun gameplay, great visuals, tight controls and great characters and the writing is fantastic

They have done justice to superhero games and made Batman one of the most beloved fictional protagonists with hardcore gamers.

Batman Arkham beats any other Batman story in every way including the dark knight and batman the dark knight returns!

There the best anyone remember BATMAN ARKHAM ASYLUM OR CITY

27 2K Games 2K Games 2K Games, Inc. is an American global developer, marketer, distributor and publisher of video games, like Borderlands, Civilization V, The Darkness, NBA 2K and more recently, WWE 2K.

Bioshock 1, Bioshock 2, Bioshock Infinite, Borderlands, Borderlands 2, NBA 2K series, Mafia series, XCOM series, Civilization series, NHL 2K series, the list goes on and on... Definitely not the best game developer but still, 60? This studio should be in top 15. I voted for 2K games not because it's the best in my opinion but because it's in the most undeserved place of all the gaming developers on this list.

I have No idea why 2K are in 58 place they deserve 6-7 place every game made by there guys is awesome great idea good gameplay best time playing them. But the Call of Duty guys should give chance to game that are not Call of Duty or other fps multiplayer games

THEY MADE ONE OF THE MOST MIND BLOWING GAMES I EVER PLAYED, A TRUE RIVAL FOR THE LAST OF US, BIOSHOCK INFINITE, NOT TO MENTION THE GREATEST story ever made in a video game said by ign themselves Bioshock 1
This series will go a long way. This company also made the loved borderlands they must be one of top ten

Lol, 2K is evil. They suck. Why are they even here?

28 Bohemia Interactive

BI Studios have done a fantastic job in their genre of development tactical/military sim and for sure has created some of the best games ever like Operation Flashpoint, ArmA Cold War Assault, ArmA 2, ArmA 3, and rising masterpiece DayZ which could be one of the best games of the decade.

They are one of those rare game devlopers like Valve what actually listens to community and supports them. Even when new game from OPF/ARMA series comes out. Like when Arma 3 game out from being public ALPHA/BETA, year after that Gamespy shutted down. And still they released patch for arma 2 multiplayer, even when most of community moved to Arma 3. That shows they do care about community. Also they made addon creating contest for arma 3 called "Make ARMA not war"

29 Epic Games

Jazz jack, unreal/unreal torment, gears of war. that's all that needs to be said

They don't make that many games anymore but they revolutionised graphics and keep doing it

Epic Mega Games has developed some true classics like Unreal, UT99, UT2004, and Gears of War. Unreal and Unreal Tournament had a "unreal" multiplayer system, Coop, DM, TDM, and CTF! Plus many mods and the Unreal Engine is still one of the best engines around.

WHY ARE EPIC GAMES so LOW. I'M SORRY HAVE HAVE YOU EVER PLAYED THE FIRST 3 GEARS OF WAR GAMES! THEY ARE GOLDEN, HIGHLY RATED GETTING AT LEAST A 9.5+ RATING FOR EACH, JUST THOSE 3 GAMES ALONE SHOW YOU HOW DECENT EPIC GAMES REALLY ARE.

Not to mention, Unreal Tournament as well.

30 Game Freak

Game Freak has made several different games besides Pokemon, however, let me point out that Pokemon is the second/third best-selling franchise in Game Boy Original- soon-to-be 3DS games. Only behind Mario and Mario Bros. , the two best known franchises ANY video game.

One word; Pokemon. Enough said

Game freak is awesome and has a lot of potential they will be in the top in a few years

Pokemon, Pulseman, Drill Dozer, HarmoKnight and Yoshi!
All amazing games! Why isn't Game Freak in the top 10? - BlazikenBro

31 From Software

Quality over quality. That's their belief. And make our games super fun and challenging

The company full of sadists. You've got to love them

Praise the Sun! Do I need to say anything.

Hidetaka Miyazaki, an absolute genius.

32 Telltale Games Telltale Games

Tales From The Borderlands to The Walking Dead to The Wolf Among Us, This company are the Ultimate story tellers! Whether they leave you laughing, or crying, they ALWAYS make a great story!

All the games they're making. From Sam & Max to The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among us. They're one of best developers of all time.

I love Minecraft Story Mode, but I feel that the choices are too annoying sometimes. Also, WHY DID REUBEN HAVE TO DIE?

33 SCE Santa Monica Studio

They created god of war series they should be at the top 5

A one track pony does not make a top five position. Take your head out your arse guys.

GOD OF WAR! :0
Nothing more to say...
Definitely top 5!

34 THQ THQ

Darksiders and saints row, two amazing games, so sad that they are bankrupt

RIP. Let's hope Nordic games revives destroy all humans

They went bankrupt? So sand some good devs that don't care about the money can't do well, while crappy companies like EA become inmensely rich and powerful by selling the same game with extremely minor changes every year to rich mindless fools (Sad about Bioware being theirs now)...

Miss you guys and your game designs. no one does it quite like you did.

35 HAL Laboratory

Earthbound
The Kirby Series
Super Smash Bros. Melee, the best Smash game of the three

They may not have made that many well known games, but these games are so classic, Hal just can't be overlooked.

Super Smash Bros, Mother, Kirby and Adventures of Lolo. Four of my favourite franchises were made by HAL.

They Made Us Pay For Smash DLC - VideoGamefan5

This compagny is so good. Super Smash Bros, Kirby... Sakurai, Iwata, they all worked here. This compagny is really good in my opinion.

36 Treasure

They made some awesome games for SEGA consoles.

37 Mojang Mojang Mojang AB is a Swedish video game developer founded in May 2009 under the name Mojang Specifications by game programmer Markus Persson, best known for creating the popular independent game Minecraft, a sandbox game.

Mojang doesn't really deserve to be in this list. They only got their fame from little kids playing Minecraft and spreading the plague.

The creators of Minecraft!

38 Treyarch

All Call of Duty games by Treyarch are amazing. The storyline is really good. The multiplayer is amazing and the Zombies is breathtaking. Treyarch all the way.

Treyarch should be well above activision

Best Developer Why? Bo1, Bo2, WaW. They were amazing! Nice gun Bo1 Nice Killstreaks Bo2 And Call of Duty WaW was Just A Classic. Most of the love goes to Bo1 Because Just watch a Video of all of them And you will see To me best Developer of all time.

You must all be 13 year old virgins.

39 Sierra Entertainment

Many people forgot this company, which is unfortunate. They made a lot of great games, such as the Swat series/police quest and is now defunct. The Swat series is one of the most Tactical Games in the world, as you can order your Swat Officers, you mostly have to be slow, and you must try to capture suspects than kill them. Many people are forgetting the tactical games with good gameplay, and we need to keep Tactical Games alive.

Nice one! I can't remember playing a bad Sierra game... I really enjoyed the King's Quest games, the Space Quest games, and Leisure Suit Larry!

Really improved the Tactical genre of gaming with Swat 3 and Swat 4 and helped develop Half-Life! Sierra is a legend.

40 Activision Activision Activision Publishing, Inc. is an American video game publisher. It was founded on October 1, 1979 and was the world's first independent developer and distributor of video games for gaming consoles.

The only people who even like Activision or are dumb enough to think they are one of the best developers is a dumbass. I'm sorry if this offends you, but smart people come to realize that Activision doesn't care at all about the community in general. Take Call of Duty for instance, they made legendary games like Black Ops 2 and Call of Duty 4. After Black Ops 2, Activison put half-ass effort into their games, and try and get nerdy kids to spend hundreds of dollars on supply drops. Not only is this in Call of Duty, but also a similar money-greed situation in World of Warcraft. They made a good game, yes, but then once it becomes popular, they bribe us with money and only seek their franchises as a half-ass way to get money. Does Nintendo make their Mario games half-ass every year? No, they constantly change their games and try new things to please the community, which in my opinion is why they are the best, and Activision one of the most money-greeding worst.

After they cancelled Crash landed for no reason and didn't give Crash back to sony.I started to despite these guys.

This company remakes the same game over and over for 8yo, they brought back old IPs (Guitar Hero and Pro Skater) without putting any effort, just for either retaining the rights or making a quick buck, and they bought Crash and Spyro and have done nothing with it. These guys suck

Yeah, Activision hasn't been developing games for years. They publish games. There's a difference
