- Nintendo: This should be self explanatory, and really, if you question their inclusion, you might need a crash course in gaming history.
- Atlus: Everything they churn out is pure gold. Atlus have not made a bad game in a very long time.
- Naughty Dog: The newer guard and direction of this industry is defined by Naughty Dog. Their technical mastery is legendary, and their ability to make an absolute stunning product (Uncharted 3 notwithstanding) very well known.
Naughty Dog makes amazing movies, don't they? :P
Not sure how this industry is defined by Naughty Dog.
At the moment, the industry is defined by mobile and tablet games. As well as titles like Minecraft that are basically made for nothing, with 0 marketing yet make billions. These are what seem to defining the future of the industry, not Naughty Dog.
Even from a technical perspective, it's arguably Epic with the unreal engine that defines last gen with the future quite possibly the exact same thing again.
