Man, these guys could not be stopped in the late 90's-early 2000's. They had Perfect Dark, GoldenEye, Diddy Kong Racing, Donkey Kong Country, Conker's Bad Fur Day and one of my favourite video game series of all time, Banjo-Kazooie. Now every game they seem to make is poorly made. Why Rare? Why was Nuts + Bolts so bad?
Have to include these guys. Such great games like Devil May Cry, Mega Man, Marvel vs. Capcom, Street Fighter, Resident Evil and, again one of my personal favs, Dead Rising. They still produce quality games (case in point: RE5) but the Mega Man franchise has been average over the last few installments.
What happened? Sonic, Nights, Alex Kidd. Oh you guys were so good. Too bad that you don't have a home console anymore. Shame. Really had an underrated game in Jet Set Radio.
Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Portal. Valve is one of my favourites and they make good, quality games.
SUPER SMASH BROTHERS!!!
Anyway, what are your favourites?
