    Looking through the pages it seems half of the people here dont actually know what a publisher is.

     

    That said, EA without a doubt.They dont even try to hide how terrible they are.

    Well since they are a major part of GW2 that has changed.  A year ago yes, now, no.

    Frogster - worst i've seen, ban 12 buddy of mine for using tunneling service to improve their ping.

    Blizzard - Money grabbing seen in RMT in d3 and separating starcraft 2 into 3 installment with lots of filler mission compare to tight engaging story of the original

    EA - They think money can make good game (aka franchise destroyer)

    No, they think name alone can make good game.

    They buy up studios because they know they can keep their franchises going with tons of budget cutbacks and crazy crunchtimes in effect - and people will still eat it up.

    For me it has to be Gamefore/Frogster, they managedddd to ruin: Aion (EU) and TERA for me.

    Unreliable companies with very poor customer support or respect for the player!

  • RednecksithRednecksith Madison heights, MIPosts: 1,238Member

    Nexon is horrible, but I have to go with EA.

    Nexon because they just don't give a crap about any of their customers, at all. They fail miserably at providing even the most basic level of customer support, and out zero effort into at least making it look like they give a shit.

    EA is far worse because they've killed off so many good studios and franchises. Had they not gotten their mitts on Origin, we'd probably be singing praises from on high for the continuing depth and innovation of the Ultima series RPGs. Hell, Ultima Underworld was the direct insipration for the much beloved Elder Scrolls series (as well as being revolutionary for its time)...

    But noooo, they killed that off for the sake of UO... which they eventually killed off as well. They murdered Westwood Studios (and Command & Conquer + Earth & Beyond along with them), destroyed Bullfrog (and used the Syndicate name for a shitty FPS), ruined Bioware, etc. They are beyond redemption at this point.

    Zenimax / Bethesda gets honorable mention for the abomination that was Fallout 3. What a fucking slap in the face to fans that pile of buggy, unfinished shit was.

    I really liked FO:3, and I played every single Fallout game in their heyday (even Tactics and BoS, which were Interplay games, and the REAL slap to the face of all fans).

    Why exactly? I think they are one of the best gaming companies in the world hands down.

     

    My least favorite is SoE, due to their neglect of Vanguard and poor release of DC Online.

    Ah well, you're the one missing out on The Secret World then, probably one of the most polished, unique and best MMO's ever released.

    Definately Bethesda in my eyes. I don't judge publishers on the games themselves but on how ready they were when they were released, regardless of whether or not I liked the actual game. I enjoy ALL of Bethesda's games so far.. but almost all of them were released unfinished and not properly tested to remove most of the bugs.

    You have any idea how many rare ways you can break stuff in the newer Fallouts and Elder Scrollses?

    They throw a lot of manhours into QA and sometimes things don't show until they have had literally a million hands on it... but yeah, having a corpse ruin your wedding in Skyrim should have been a given during testing.

    I agree with others in the thread, EA 1st with SOE close behind.

    I think EA, closely followed by SOE.  But there are just so many to choose from.

    One is a publisher, the other is a Developer.....many folks in this thread are confused between the meaning of publisher vs developer...

    One "creates" the game...the other ships it out the door

    For an earlier COD reference...Activation didn't make the game...infinity ward did...

    They actually co-published it.

    Its a tie between EA and craptivision. EA ruins every franchise that they touch, and craptivision milks every franchise they have til no one wants it anymore.

    Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) is a game development and game publishing division of Sony.

    Fresh from der Wikipedia. Who is confused now?

    Also, Treyarch and Sledgehammer games make CoD now. Where were you when Infinity Ward was dismantled after CoD4:MW2 and sued Activision for bonuses they never got?

    None, never really had any bad experiences. Some games I didn't like, but not gonna call someone a bad company for making a game I didn't like!
