CD Project Red
Irrational Games
thrd is quite hard : I greatly enjoyed Larian games, Cyan, Lionhead, (and perhaps others?)

I have all confidence that next year Larian will be pushed upwards!

As well as Larian for DKS and their overall positive attitude to their customers, I guess Bethesda for their open world games: they're not perfect, their legendary QA being, well, legendary, but their games have probably occupied more of my time than anything else, especially their scope for modding; and the Bioware of a few years ago, around the time of the original Mass Effect and Dragon Age: Oranges for the scope of their storytelling. Things at Bioware have gone a bit awry more recently and I'm not confident they'll recover, but we'll see, I guess.

1) The Librarian's for the fantastic mountains of humour in their games !
2) The Larian's because they've so friendly forums, in the past, present & future, I am sure . And for putting their heart & soul in developing Gems of Games !!
3) Larian Studios for their games giving me tons of hours of gameplay ... in past, present & future ... no doubt about it !!!

Sorry this list is coloured with an ocean of personal memorable moments I've experienced in the div Universe ... ALL the time !

As I don't play a lot of games I'm basing my top 3 on my favorite games both on console and PC over the last 10 years.

1) Larian goes to first place because not only do they make good games they listen to game fans and care about their games not just making them just for profit. There are a lot of mediocre games out there that are very popular due to big publisher's might (EA cough, cough) and smaller devs / publishers that make genuinely great games miss out.

2) The now defunct Surreal Software for making the Drakan series of games. They were similar to Larian and were involved in the community until they got bought out then later shut down.

3) Hard to say. I like the Witcher games so I'd have to say CD Project RED but Infinity Ward would be a close second for third place (fourth?!) as I always enjoyed the short but sweet COD games.
1. Larian laugh
2. Triumph Studios (AOW)
3. Radon Labs (defunct)

1. CD Project Red. Easy choice for me, not just for their anti-DRM stance but also because they make some truly fantastic games.

2. Larian. Well, we've been together a long time, haven't we? laugh

I'm not sure I HAVE a #3 right now. Maybe Obsidian, depending on how Project Eternity goes...
