Valve made Steam, and relatively, is making SteamBox and SteamOS, which is (err, will be) an open source platform playing triple-A titles that can usually only run on Windows on a Linux base. They're also the ones who made awesome games like Half Life and Portal and Left 4 Dead. They definitely have my vote.

EA is too freaking corporate and big to deserve any recognition. They rehash and steal. Recent example would be Plants Vs Zombies 2. They took that game and completely killed the series. I don't want to have to buy a million things just to get to the next step, and I sure as hell don't want to download a 'free' game and find out that I need to buy stuff. I like upfront fees, if any are there at all. Madden is about the only "diamond in the rough" in their expansive sea of thievery.

Activision is in the same boat as EA. They take games and make them enjoyable, but they're far too deep in the realm of profit. I have to admit, though, from what I've played, Activision makes one hell of a commercial series. Same goes with EA, I suppose.

Valve is great. I love my HL (Half-Life 3 pretty much confirmed, by the way), my TF, my Steam, my L4D, my Portal, and I'm sure I'll love whatever they put out in the future (Steam OS anyone?). They create some fantastically realistic games and they put a lot of effort into their work.

Rockstar is definitely near the Valve level. RDR and GTA are two awesome series. They create crazily realistic games, and I'm personally favorable of the sandbox-style games. They don't, however, have an awesome game distributing store like Valve But I think they make up for it by not spending a decade on a single game. And Rockstar crafts beautiful multiplayer.

It's either Valve or Rockstar.

Gah, why are you making me choose!?

Rockstar!

No, Valve!

No, Rockstar!

Valve!

Ah! I'm just going to say Valve!

Toshiba are well built but cost a lot.
Acer are cheap but don't have great build quality.


Samsung and Asus both make great quality products but I have got to go for samsung because they make pretty much everything in their ssds which I have got to admire.

How does EA win if it is a three-way tie between Valve, Activision, and EA?

And I'll vote for ASUS.
