If making the most money is a top priority when choosing which gaming company to work for (as if working on games isn't enough!), the go-to company in Japan is Square-Enix. According to Nensyu Labo, a company that analyzes salary and income in the island nation, Square-Enix ranks at the top of gaming companies for average annual salary. And the race wasn't close, either; employees at the company that brings us Final Fantasy XI and Final Fantasy XIV make on average more than twice as much a year as the next closest competitor, Sony -- 21.68 million yen ($273,057) to 9.23 million yen ($116,253).

For a look at what other companies made the top 10 list, check out the rankings.
