With its roots planted as far back as the late 80s, Naughty Dog has successfully weathered the storms to become a definitive name in the gaming industry. From Crash Bandicoot to Jak & Daxter (oh, and that little franchise named Uncharted), Sony certainly owes Naughty Dog a seat at the head of the table. Now, with their latest hit, Naughty Dog, becoming another colossal success, Naughty Dog has definitely become a trusted name for great games.
Grand Theft Auto V. Really, that’s all we need to say as to why Rockstar North is on this list. There’s no arguing what a huge impact the one-two punch of both Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online had on the game industry. However, what can be considered equally as impressive is Rockstar’s support of the community in the days and weeks that followed the release. After working diligently to resolve any issues that may have affected the overall gaming experience, Rockstar decided it should give away free goodies in the form of a stimulus package as a thank you. Rockstar, you just made it on our Christmas list this year.
