Here's my choice:
game franchise : Grand Theft Auto and Assassin's Creed
studio :Ubisoft Montreal and Black Tusk Studios
Game developers :
Rockstar North

Publishers : EA. ( I am just kidding) , I like Microsoft.

Developers:
  • Valve
  • until recently ... Bioware
  • Ubisoft Montreal while it was under Jade Raymond's command
  • Rockstar
Franchise? Don't think I even have a favourite right now.

Publisher? Going with Microsoft.

I like a lot of developers that get published by EA, that doens't mean I like EA. They do have a habit of picking up good studios, but then have a habit bear-hugging them to death.

Amen to that! I don't know how anyone could seriously say EA is their favorite publisher, which obviously a lot of people do hence they won the publisher of the year 2011 on this site. It may be so that people like a lot of games they publish but that doesn't make them a good publisher in fact EA being the publisher makes your favorite games worse. They stick unneeded MP, Microtransaction, Online Pass, Day1 DLC and a lot of other bad stuff on a game.

This was all based on opinion so if I hurt anybody's feelings(For whatever reason) I'm sorry but some of these games like Dante's Inferno get passed up because they go under that radar. Have a nice day people!
