Over the past few years I have made top 10 lists for my favorite games on most of the consoles I own. I have recently ranked the #1 games from each list against each other to decided the best of the best.
But now it is time to pick the 10 publishers/developers that most often appeared in those top 10 lists, #1 being the company that most often made it.
I can tell you my top three developers by personal opinion right now, but I won’t. I am curious to see if those three make the list and in what position.
So here we go, the 10 most recurring companies that made games that are on my top 10 lists!
Okay…So there was a LOT of ties, but here goes…
#10 There’s A Handful
Not nearly as many as the number 10’s though. These next companies made it into the top 10 lists twice.
Camelot Software Planning
There ya go, not too bad.
#9 A Few Here Too
The next companies appeared three times in my top 10 lists. This is where the companies really start to shine in my eyes.
SCE Santa Monica
#8 Another Handful Here
These next companies appeared an impressive four times on my lists!
Namco Bandai (or Bandai Namco)
#7 A Few Here As Well
The next companies appeared 5 times on the list. Now we are starting to see the cream of the crop!!
#6 Intelligent Systems
There’s just this one! The great development team behind Paper Mario is the only company to appear 6 times!
#5 There’s Only Two Here!
These two companies showed up seven times with amazing games!
Sony Computer Entertainment America
#4 Rare Ltd.
Woo! One more company stands alone! Rare has made the top 10 lists eight times!
The guys behind Sonic and a few other amazing titles make the number 3 spot, due to appearing a whopping 10 times on my lists! As it would so happen, I actually consider them my third favorite developer!
The company that brought us Mega Man and Resident Evil has appeared 19 times in my lists! Wowsers!! They would actually be about my fourth favorite developer in my personal opinion, but clearly they deliver more of my favorite games than any other company except…
These guys are absolutely my favorite developers. Practically every game they have ever made has been incredible, and the ones that aren’t are just plain good. This company has destroyed the rest, taking a massive 82 spots on my lists! They are indeed my favorite video game company!
That’s all folks!
I always update these lists if new games make the top 10’s, which really doesn’t happen often, but when it does, I will update this list as well, which has the potential to change this entire thing drastically. Who knows what the future will hold? If this list does change, that just means I have discovered some truly incredible new games!!
