Who owns the best game developers?

CAPCOM

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.

PUBLISHER SCORE: 83%



THE STUDIOS

Capcom Production Studios | Original studio
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%

    "rockstar a 75%? wtf?" and "THQ so low???? 77%? really, you guys must have been drunk when you wrote this." Can i just point out that they didnt give them those scores, they are based on metacritic scores of the last three games that were developed (i think that was it anyway)... Suprised to see EA so low considering they own so bloody much, also suprised to see Nintendo come out in front, although not nessesarily dissapointed.

    The main things wrong with this article are that 1.) HOW ON EARTH DOES A CRAPPY STUDIO LIKE EA BUY OUT AN AWESOME STUDIO (Criterion) THAT REALLY DOES GREAT WITH JUST ONE SERIES (Burnout): and 2.) WHERE ARE THE NEW DETAILS ON ASSASSIN'S CREED 2?!?!?! Thank you for your time.

    Great article- One of GamesRadar's best. Mind you, Nintendo also own Monster Games (Excite Truck), HAL Labs (Kirby) and Game Freak (Pokémon). They've also just aquired Sora, (Sakurai's -Smash Bros. and Kirby- studio) and I belive they also own the ones who made Disaster.
