Who owns the best game developers?

We find out which publisher wins in the battle of the studios


Trivia alert- Capcom takes its name from the original company title, Japanese Capsule Computers, with CAPsule and COMputers creating the moniker now used by the developer and publisher of megaton gaming titles like Resident Evil 4, Devil May Cry 3 and Street Fighter II.

With Resident Evil 5, Devil May Cry 4 and the recently announced Street Fighter IV all in the works, it's clear that Capcom likes to stick to what it knows - or, at least, what's immensely popular. Though, at the same time, Capcom has also brought us fresh and exciting titles like Dead Rising, God Hand and Okami, to name just three.

Unlike most publishers, Capcom's structure is focused less on contained studios and more on the producers that guide each project to completion. The one recognisable studio, Clover, has been dissolved into Capcom's general team collective.

So, to get Capcom's dev score, we've looked at the biggest franchises created and directed by its biggest producers - Devil May Cry, Resident Evil, Onimusha - and taken the average of the last three games in each series.
Studio score: 83%
