The CCP from before 2007. After 2008, not so much anymore. No opinion yet on 2012+.

Egosoft for the X, X2, X 3Reunion and Terran Conflict.

Creative Assembly for the Total War series.

MicroProse for Falcon 4.0

FASA Interactive for MechWarrior 2 and it's expansions.

Stardock for Galactic Civilizations and GalCiv2 - oh, and for publishing Ironclad's Sins of a Solar Empire.

Origin because of ultima 7 and Underworld.
Lucasart because of the adventuregames.
Westwood because of lands of lore, eye of the beholder and dune 2.

Used to be BioWare for KOTOR + Mass Effect. Then TOR happened. Sad I try holding on to faith that this is LucasArts' fault and not Bioware's, but meh.

Now it's CCP.

Cyan Worlds is an old favorite. Wish their games were still in style.

Bungie for Halo

Mojang who brought us Minecraft.

Epic Games who gave us Gears of war, Unreal engine, Borderlands, ect ect

Total war for everything they touched.

SOE should be here for planetside and SWG but they managed to kill off their own greatness chasing subs that were not there.

As I understand it, Black Isle was a division of Interplay.

Also, you forgot to mention :
