Not sure which is my outright favourite but it would be either Bioware, Relic or Bethseda, I cannot really make my mind up.

CCP obviously as one of the only games i generally play is Eve lol, Bethesda for there elder scrolls series although they are renowned for bugs and glitches. DICE, yes, a branch of EA lol... although they release games way before completion and are generally pretty awful with customer service and everything else that goes with it, the BF series is by far my favorite shooter... There about the only 3 games i follow and play tbh lol.

My first fav was Westwood Studios, that made Command and Conquer.

My overall fav in particular order are:

Valve (DoTA2 beta key plz!)
CCP
Blizzard ( I mainly love their RTS games)
Bethesda (Fallout, skyrim)
Rocksteady (Batman Arkham City tomorrow on PC! )
Riot (LoL anyone!? :) )
And few others I cannot think of atm.

As a added bonus, number one worst company on my list is Electronic Arts.

Kerberos - solid game design, fairly original for the well beaten 4x path.
TaleWorlds - solid debut of 3D medieval fighting mechanics.
Creative Assembly - Total War fame, most of them rocks.
Sierra (defunct) - for bringing SpaceQuest (fond memories of Roger Wilco), King's Quest and a variety of other games.
Origin (defunct) - lots of Ultima (IV is the best), Wing Commander series.

... last but not least, several non-Western and indies, which I'll skip to keep this short.

Ill say Squaresoft up to Final Fantasy 7 (Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy Tactics).

Bethesda would be my current favorite. TES4Life!

Lucasarts, because, well, Jedi Outcast ROCKED. Jedi Academy was...sorta ok. Not as good, though.
Valve, because of Portal and Portal 2, which are THE best games ever. (Never been brave enough to try any of the Half-Life games.)
And now Bethesda. Skyrim is now among one of my top games.
Oh, and Relic. Homeworld 2 was great.
And, of course, CCP, because EVE is really starting to take off again (or looks that way so far, but we'll see).
Microsoft Games did good with Age of Empires II and Age of Mythology. Age of Empires III is pretty awesome too.
Blizzard, because of my fond memories of BC-age WoW, and Starcraft II, which is one of the sleekest-looking RTS games I've played. WoW, however, seems to have gone downhill since Cataclysm began. WotLK may not hold a place in other people's hearts, but it's where I finally caught up to the level cap for the first time since I started playing.

Annnnd...yeah, that's it. I think.

Valve I don't think has ever released a truly bad game

Bethesda is among the only studios still in existence that can make a truly good single player game

Bioware...KOTOR and Mass Effect are amazing franchises

Ion Storm because I <3 the Deus Ex franchise

id Software, because a large part of my middle school years were spent playing Quake 3

Nintendo....no explanation needed


CCP is a good studio it seems but MMO's are almost a different market from the rest of those : /
