"Prestigious" Gaming Companies?

Besides EA and Blizzard and maybe Epic Games, are there any other companies you'd consider prestigious or that others in the gaming industry really want to work at?

    Ew, Epic?

    I think Bungie, now that they have stopped working with Activision, sounds like a good place to be.

      The anti-Epic sentiment is not justified. They're smart and are going to disrupt the standard 70:30 split which is great for gamers and devs everywhere.

      I think people who complain about the store also miss the fact that it’s trying to “strike while the iron is hot”. Fortnite is drawing millions of people to the Epic Games launcher. Way more than Steam gets for any of its games. Getting a store launched while those numbers are high is how you make a store. How Steam launched with Half Life 2. Without HL2 there’d be no Steam (like it is now). So waiting a couple years so it launched with all the bells and whistles would have possibly missed the hot iron.

    Riot is large and solving some really difficult problems. I’d say it’s a prestigious place to work.

      Valve doesn’t make games. They just make an email verification app.

      Hard to work there if you're not in Japan. Work life sucks if you're in Japan. Therefore, gg

      Isn't that ALL French companies? French people think they are above all else, especially Parisians.

    what do we know about rockstar, square enix and Bethesda?
    Jul 2, 2019 1
    • From what I know Rockstar NY is fun but most people stay there for life (much longer tenure than Silicon Valley companies). Square is mostly Japan other than Crystal Dynamics which is right in Redwood City. Seems nice. Bethesda - you’ll need to move to Maryland
