Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter.
Maybe there's a studio out there that just seems to get you, though. One that seems to build games you've wanted to play for years, or maybe one can even craft a style of game you never would have seen yourself playing, but you end up loving it. Most gamers that I talk with seem to know of one or two studios like this - teams that, in their eyes, can do no wrong.
For me, I'm pretty sure that's Harmonix. I had a PS2 demo disc that featured a track or two of Frequency, and I played it regularly until a bin of used games taught me there was a sequel called Amplitude. I was eager to try Guitar Hero and finally caved when Rock Band debuted, starting a five-year obsession with a $170 box of plastic instruments on the game's launch day. Despite having reservations toward the Kinect and an outright contempt for dancing, I even gave Dance Central a shot. Surprise, I dug that, too.
Is there a developer that has a similar track record with you? Was there at one point, like the golden era of Rare, but they've now been shuttered or reorganized into something else? That's totally okay - modern or not, tell us about those studios and why you love their work so much, right after you check this week's Japanese hardware sales after the break!
