What Video Game Companies Do You Trust?

  • Trust nobody. Just made informed decisions based on companies past actions for what you can maybe expect from them.

  • I don't trust any game company blindly, but I do "trust" some companies to do certain things, like Bethesda to make their games large, but full of bugs that fans will have to fix. But I respect certain developers, like CD Project Red.

  • I trust Naughty Dog. They've earned it. All of their PS3 games were 10/10 for me and Uncharted 4 was a 9/10.

    But that's it.

  • I don't emphatically trust ANY company anymore, but of the ones I happen to like there's a few that haven't let me down yet and a few that only stumble once in awhile:

    • Sega/Atlus
    • CD Projekt Red
    • Naughty Dog
    • Arc System Works

    Names I used to trust fully that aren't always up to their old standard:

    • Tecmo/Koei (And I'm a HUGE Musou fanboy, and I love Nioh, but they have been letting me down lately)
    • NISA
    • Blizzard
    • Capcom
    • Namco

  • I trust a few developers, like Naughty Dog, Rocksteady, DICE (because I love Battlefront so much), Eidos Montreal, CD Projekt Red, and Crystal Dynamics. I would put BioWare on this list, but their track record is getting a little dirty as of late (even though I like Andromeda).

    I don't have faith in publishers. They operate the business aspect of gaming so much; it's hard for consumers to like them.

  • CD Projekt Red is one I certainly respect, but with only having played one of their games I'm not sure it's trust yet. But how they handle dlc has earned them a lot with me.

    I trust Naughty Dog and Atlus and Rockstar to make good games. I have faith in Bioware, but I don't have implicit trust in them at the moment.

    As for publishers? None that I can think of.

  • Atlus
    Naughty Dog
    IO Interactive
    From Software
    CD Project Red
    Rockstar Games
    Frictional Games

    *(Their A team, not the noobs who made Andromeda)

    All of these devs have made consistently good games. With the exception of IO Interactive and Hitman: Absolution, which was single, albeit quite substantial, misstep. I'm not going to cry or anything if any of them make a bad game, sometimes you take risks that don't pan out, but so far they have given me no reason to believe that whatever games they're making next will be anything but great.

    I'm seeing some comments saying don't trust anyone, but I think distrusting someone despite them consistently doing everything right is if anything even more unreasonable than trusting someone that make mistakes every so often. At that point it's just irrational fear.

  • Although in the last generation I didn't get as many of their games, I think I played practically all the major games Rockstar published for the PS2. I trust them to make solid games, without playing around with troublesome novelties. I think Nintendo is also a good company, it carefully releases games with thought through gameplay even if they're trying a new concept; some of the gameplay I most enjoyed came from Nintendo in several consoles with distinct features.

  • For companies the two that come to mind are

    CD Project Red
    and maybe Bethesda

    other than that I have confidence on some other developers putting out good work, but not as much confidence in them or the publisher as a whole. A good example is Yoko Taro, I'll buy anything he works on as I'm pretty sure it would always be something worth checking out, but I absolutely despise Square, to the point where I actively try to avoid supporting them with other stuff.

  • I usually trust IP's over developers
