This article is going to be a little different. Instead of naming off one game developer and what I like them, I am going to name three. These three developers need proper recognition for their talent and initiative to make great games. In my opinion, these are the three best game developers out there. Now, these developers make AAA titles, so I’m not really adding indie developers. Sorry, but to me that’s a whole other category. So let’s get started on the first game developer that is my favorite, mind you these are in no particular order.
1. Epic Games
Epic Games, for one, makes some amazing games. I mean hey, the Gears of War series is one of the best out there. They also make Bulletstorm and Infinity Blade. Bulletstorm is one of my favorite games because of it’s amazing dialog and fun, interesting gameplay. It’s not all about the games though, Epic pioneers the Unreal Engine which powers many games across the board. One thing I really like about Epic Games is their lack of greedy behavior. Let’s be honest, everyone has to be a little greedy these days, but they are one of the lesser of the greedy business people. People said the gun skins in the Gears series were a greedy move, and while I understand that I must say that they weren’t necessary to play. They are 100% optional so it’s not a huge deal, you don’t have to buy anything. Epic is, well epic. They are one of my favorite game developers out there.
That’s right, I said it. Bethesda has been under a lot of scrutiny by the community due to the issues with the PS3 version of Skyrim. Well I don’t care much about that since I got it on the Xbox 360. Their games are also notorious for bugs and flaws, but I don’t care about that. What I care about is quality of game, and by that I mean the basics. Gameplay, story, and overall fun. Their most famous games include The Elder Scrolls series and the Fallout series. Both of those are great game series full of great storylines and hours upon days of fun. They also produced Dishonored, which is a game I am rather find of. I think that as a company they make some really awesome games that happen to be well received by the community, not just me. They are definitely one of my favorite game companies.
This one is kind of obvious since I have already stated the Mass Effect is my favorite game series. Though it was tough to decide whether or not I should put them on here. I really love the Mass Effect series, but I was not overly fond of the Dragon Age series. That aside, I know that the Dragon Age games are good games and with that I decided to put BioWare on here. I hear disparaging remarks about them working with EA and how bad EA is, but I just have to say that looking at it without bias, EA produces some amazing games. There is no denying that BioWare knows how to make games though, and whether or not you disliked the ending of Mass Effect 3 or the generic map of Dragon Age 2 you have to admit that they are not awful games. BioWare has to be one of my favorite developers.
