I actually do not believe we have had this topic. Searching the board turned up no results.

Which developer is your favorite and why?

I value when writers use originality, and there isn't a more original developer I can name that is better than Team Ico. Other ones I considered were Konami, Valve and Square Enix.

Konami do nothing good apart from Metal Gear, so they don't merit a mention... And Square Enix are mostly terrible.

 

Valve are the best. TOPIC CLOSED :P.

Oh, right! Bioware I forgot to consider. I also thought about Naughty Dog... But I still like Valve and Team Ico the best.

Definitely Valve. Bethesda, Bioware, and Bungie also deserve mentions.

Hideo Kojima is part of Konami isn't he?

And Bethesda! Can't believe I forgot to mention them.

But he still contributes to Konami, and is part of the company. Nonetheless, I'll start referring to it as Kojima Productions to avoid confusion. I still like Konami though, they have made a astonishingly memorable amount of iconic games.

Valve and Team Ico are just so original though. Even though the Half-Life series involves aliens which is a predictable method now, it was a completely different viewpoint. And Portal is just completely originally, with a combination of unique story-telling and fascinating writing. Left 4 Dead's concept isn't as unique, but I haven't played it yet so I won't judge.

Half-Life doesn't resolve around the aliens, that's rather unfounded.

Agreed. I was just saying it had aliens, although the Combine feel a bit different. I didn't play the first one of course, I only read about it, so my view on the subject may seem weak compared to yours.

Having aliens is not something to hold against a game... By that same logic, Ico has castles which have been done before so it was unoriginal. Shadow of the Colossus had a horse, that's been in games before, so that was predictable.

 

Also name amazing Konami games, I wish to be enlightened.

Oh, I know. A game can still be unique while having unoriginal things in it. Zombies aren't original, but I find Dead Rising to be original due to the creativity of the weapons. It's just a personal opinion.

First one that came to mind was Silent Hill 2. Ape Escape was also fun.

But come on, aliens, aliens are so vast and can be so different that having them is hardly unoriginal.

A Space Odyssey has an alien in it, and it can hardly be defined as the same genre as Alien. Or The Man From Earth.

In all fairness though, Media Molecule need to show themselves off a bit more before they can be sensibly described as one of the best developers.

Valve and pretty much most PS3 exclusive developers like Naughty Dog, Sucker Punch and Insomniac. I hate EA but I love the games they make.

Capcom are one of my favourites thanks to Street Fighter and Resident Evil. Plus they also worked on a couple of Handheld Zelda games.
