It may have “OMG!” scrawled inexplicably on its sidebar, but Gamepro can put together a pretty solid list. Today, the site rattled off its top eight most powerful videogame studios, and we mostly agree. In no particular order, Gamepro gave the nod to:

  • Epic Games
  • Bungie
  • Rockstar North
  • Maxis Software
  • EA Tiburon
  • Sony Computer Entertainment
  • Blizzard Entertainment
  • Nintendo Entertainment Analysis and Development

Valve, Infinity Ward, and Harmonix took home runner-up ribbons.

So, can you think of anyone who’s missing? We can’t, but we’ll probably end up face-palming and saying “duh” once you guys get to commenting.
