    I don't mean according to the codex or other niche communities like biodrones. I'm talking about the mass consumer opinion.
    What are the current most respected devs. My guess is CDPR and From Software but is that it?

    Damn, at first I thought everyone in this thread was being extremely fucking spicy, but then I saw that bit about according to mass consumer opinion.

    So with that in mind, Nintendo? Plenty of people have fond childhood memories, plus there's the name-recognition amongst non-gamers. The only ones who really have an axe to grind with them are the hipsters.

    Every studio that isn't located in Canada or San Francisco already earns my respect, tbh.

    Popular devs are only popular because they are new. Eventually they will all release an Arkham Knight and be hated or get bought out. The public are fickle dipshits.

    The devs of best selling games ever, of course. Example: Skyrim and World Of Warcraft.

    That would be Cleveland Mark Blakemore, of course. Have you seen how much his game sold? Cleve even gave up on his revenge against Sirotek after he became Scrooge McDuck and is now swimming in money.

    Nintendo and Rockstar are at the top, with multiple best sellers of all time, while being highly respected. There are 100s of millions of people playing video games i.e. your "mass consumer", so companies like Larian, From Software, Obsidian, etc. aren't even blips on the radar.
