Top 5 Game Developers

Top 5 Game Developers

Books are almost always written by a single author. Music is normally created by a few writers, then performed by a band and a singer. Movies are backed by large companies and big teams, but helmed by prominent directors and actors. Gaming is unique from these other mediums in that it is almost always a studio endeavour – very few people know the individual people that contributed towards their favourite games, instead attributing the quality to the studio as a whole, and the legacy that it brings with it. This means that in order to be a truly successful game developer, these entities need to constantly evolve and prove themselves over generations. Whilst they may be headed by a few famous names, gaming studios that last more than a few years inevitably have large teams, and therefore it’s difficult to pick specific people to praise for a certain games success. The companies on this list have by and large provided the majority of my favourite games, constantly impressing me and the gaming public with what they produce. These are my Top 5 Game Developers of all time.

Movie Talks: Is Jurassic World worthy of the hype?

Everyone loves Jurassic Park. It is one of the great big budget summer block busters of all time. I might even go as far as to say that the film is near on perfect. However, it had some rather underwhelming and quite poorly recieved sequels. Fast forward 20 years and the franchise is back on...

BlockStorm - Press Vs Developers, almost (Video)

  Voletic were invited to join the press in taking on the developers of BlockStorm at their own game. Vince was selected because he is really good at shooters (or at least, he pretends to be). Unfortunately, the developers didn't show up, and the press were left to duke it out, spilling...

E3 Nintendo Hype - News

Thanks to E3 I am buying a WiiU. I've been on the fence about which new console to buy, but now Nintendo has gotten me so excited for the coming year in gaming. Sure, of all the games they announced at E3, only about 3 of them are actually new IPs, but Nintendo are going out of their way to...

52 Game Challenge: #4 - Metro: Last Light

I continue on my valiant yet completely self-serving quest to complete 52 video games in the space of one year. With game number four I chose something that taps into another love of mine; post-apocalyptic fiction. Metro 2033 is still one of my favourite FPSers. It came out of almost nowhere and...

MTGO Cube Drafting (Gameplay) - Black Lotus is Festive, right?

Every holiday period, Wizards of the Coast run Cube drafts on MTGO. You don't get to keep any of the cards opened like you would in a normal draft but the pay off is huge; you get to play with some of the most broken, degenerate and incredibly powerful cards ever printed. Previously, I talked...

Magic: The Gathering - A Cubed Love Affair

When it comes to Magic, there is nothing quite like cracking open some new packs and building a fresh deck to go toe to toe with your friends (or foes). A format in which you construct your deck there and then from "new" cards is referred to as a 'limited' format. This can be from drafting...
