id Software, Bungie and Rockstar.

Id pretty much revolutionized the FPS genre with games like Doom, Quake, Hexen, Heretic, Wolfenstein and Commander Keen.

Bungie was right after with the Marathon series. They also made Oni, the only game I know that really combines hand-to-hand combat with fire arms seamlessly, and it had a great plot too.

Rockstar, the developers behind the entire GTA franchise. Need I say more?

Oh, now that I think about it, Capcom, Konami, Namco and Nintendo have made some great games too...

Valve for revolutionizing storytelling and the entire fps genre multiple times
Bethesda for granting us elderscrolls and maybe Rockstar for I did like some games of theirs such as max payne.

I'm a cheap, shameless fanboy of Bethesda Studios and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

Valve (which seems to be an unpopular opinion here nowadays)
Nintendo
Team ICO
Level-5
Team Meat
id Software (in the 90's at least)
Runic Games
Croteam
Rockstar
Tales of Game's (they only made one game so far, but it was objectively the best freeware game in existence)
Bethesda (ignoring the lack of playtesting, which for the most part is a good thing with the hilarious bugs their games tend to have)
Platinum Games (the successor to Clover as it's comprised of mostly ex-Clover members)
Clover Studios (R.I.P.)

And some others I might be forgetting.

I'd have to say:

Valve for games like TF2, HL2, CS, etc.
Bethesda for Elder Scrolls
5th Cell for Scribblenauts

Nintendo would be on here if they would stop making remakes of most of their games. The only series they are not making remakes for every console they make would be Pokemon, but I'm not liking most of the designs for Pokemon X and Y so far.

LucasArts when I was younger, and it pains me to say it, but EA's probably my current favorite. They're kind of cunts, but they made most of my favorite games.

Honorable mention to Valve for treating their fans better than any other developer, I think, and to Bethesda for making or publishing 2 or 3 of my other favorite games.

Judging by the games I own I'd say Bethesda, Bioware and Rockstar.

GTA, Red Dead Redemption (Dead nightmare included), L.A Noire, Max Payne. Hell, if I could find a copy of Manhunt I would probably buy that too.

Living like a Rockstar . :) Don't miss out on Oni though, Rockstar made a version of that one as well, one of the best games ever IMO.

Naughty Dog- Obvious, ain't it? Such a great company when it comes to graphical and story-telling achievements. They are a little clunky on game play yet, but I still have high hopes for them.

Favorite Game: Jak 2

Sucker Punch- They made one of my favorite series (the Sly Cooper series) on the PS2. They also have developed the Infamous series over these past few years, which are great in terms of the sandbox style of game play and, when it comes to character development, they are in a class of their own.

Favorite Game: Infamous 2

Sony Santa Monica- God of War. There you go.

Favorite Game: God of War III

Square-Enix- Despite some very questionable decisions these past few years, their legacy in the JRPG genre is almost unmatched. They are a graphical juggernaut and have also produced some of the most beautiful soundtracks I've ever heard from any video game company.

Favorite Game: Final Fantasy VIII

Namco-Bandai- I mostly like them just for their work in the Tekken series, but they are a powerhouse when it comes to producing some of the best fighting games out there.

Favorite Game: Tekken Tag Tournament 2

Insomniac Games- They made the original Spyro games before the rights were sold off to Activision and they made the Ratchet and Clank series. They're mainly on this list for the latter and the fact that they did not sell out to become a console-based company.

Favorite Game: Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando
