Damn, Sony is really rocking with the first party teams. Not all of them can produce a gem, but Naughty Dog, Santa Monica, Guerilla Games, and Insomniac are among the best in the industry. If I had to choose my favorite.. I'm going to go with Santa Monica. Naughty Dog and Guerrilla Games are really close after that. I like all of their games, but God of War was truly special this gen. I think Naughty Dog can surpass it with Last of Us Part 2, though. And I'm sure Guerrilla's next game will be amazing. So how about you, SW? Your favorite Sony first party dev?

HZD was the best game of this gen, so Guerrilla Games.

Currently, i'd say:

  1. Santa Monica
  2. Naughty Dog
  3. Guerilla

Naughty Dog is unparalleled IMO, unfortunately they're mired in Leftist, SJW agenda pushing ideologies. Small price to pay though considering their quality.

Japan studios is pretty wonderful. For TLOU alone though Naughty is my favorite.

@MirkoS77: Pretty much what you said. I love the Uncharted series, but hate the gay agenda Naughty Dog is pushing with The Last of Us.

Funny you say that I just started replaying HZD and that's all I could think of how amazing this game would be on PC with M/KB controls and 60 FPS along with advance graphics setting of course it's a damn shame it's tied down to one system.

I don't mind the inclusion of homosexuality and diversity, I welcome it, but I do mind when such things are made into political tools. I didn't feel Left Behind did that, but TLoU II's trailers have felt very forced. I suspect TLoU 2's going to be plagued with this agenda, and the echos through ND's halls of "bigots!" will ring loud come release when gamers rightfully call them on it.

Probably Insomniac, because I always loved Ratchet and Clank... and Sunset Overdrive and Resistance were awesome too.

Naughty Dog because of TLOU. Currently, the game I'm most excited about is TLOU2, "leftist agenda" and all lol. Tons of great developers here, though. Tough to choose.

I can't vote. Sony's output is just too disappointing. I wish they funded more Japan Studio projects. Gravity Rush and Bloodborne were better than almost any western Sony game I played this gen.

The only Sony 1st party studio I love is Polyphony Digital.

Gran Turismo is my favourite sim racing IP from my childhood.

Santa Monica for doing GoW, a cinematic 3rd person action game catered to preteens. Lol, no.

Naughty Dog for doing Uncharted and The Last of Us, both cinematic 3rd person action games with average gameplay. Lol, no.

Guerilla Games for doing Horizon and Killzone, one 3rd person action game and one slow paced FPS with small areas focusing on graphics? Umm.. no.

Insomniac for doing average 3rd person action games? Lol, no.

Sony's studios are boring as shit to me. Any of them could've made any of these games. They might just as well have one big studio instead.

Vote goes to Media Molecule. The only fun developer on the list. That or Sony Japan.

Naughty Dog due to Uncharted. Honestly not really looking forward to the second Last of Us. The games are simply too dark for my liking. Gut wrenching to play at times... especially the beginning of the first.

I expect if ND is truly done with Uncharted that my answer will eventually change.

Santa Monica I guess. SCEJs only good games were ico stuff, ueda is done tho apparently.

Not a GT person.

Naughty Dog games are too derivative for my liking. Insomniac is meh, used to like them way more. Sucker Punch is neat I like Sly.. Guerilla is meh.

Santa Monica makes a good game between the Greek god of war games and recently Dad of War. Wildly overrated and outclassed by better action games, they are at least good action games. Which is more than I can say for the likes of The Witcher 3 or any thing using Batman combat at least.
