Capcom develops the best games on the planet. If you don't know the name Capcom, leave this site.

[ 3 ] = SNK, Playmore, Eolith, Sun
After a brief scare SNK has returned, although in somewhat fragmented form. SNK creations like Fatal Fury, Samurai Shodown, The King Of Fighters, and Metal Slug have stood second only to Capcom's titles throughout time. If you don't know SNK, you should.

[ 4 ] = Sega
Another important figure in the gaming industry, Sega is not only the creator of the Virtua Fighter and Fighting Vipers series, but also the designer of the Chihiro, Triforce, Naomi2, and Naomi hardwares. In addition, Sega's own arcades are the best in Japan.

[ 5 ] = Sony
Capcom, Psikyo, and Takumi designed games on Sony's diversely compatible PlayStation and PlayStation2 hardwares. The ZN1, ZN2, and System 246 are among the many widely developed for Sony compatible hardwares.

This developer produces some of the best shooting games in the industry, including the amazing Mars Matrix, Giga Wing, and Night Raid titles.

Another developer that has had its head in the game for a while, Konami brought us the goodness of Gradius, Contra, Parodius, Castlevania, Metal Gear, and a ton of other fun series.

[ 9 ] = Cave
This unpopular developer is the creator of some of the most creative and innovative shooters out there, with Ketsui,, Guwange, and DoDonPachi Dai Ou Jou among the many. Click the link to see why this developer has a cult following.

[ 10 ] = Taito
Creator of old-school shooters like Fire Mustang, Sky Shark, and Darius, Taito also pushes on with past titles like RayStorm and RayCrisis, as well as recent titles like XII Stag, Border Down, and Psyvariar. Taito also has some of the best arcades in Japan.

[ 11 ] = Irem
Known for creating the insanely hard R-Type shooters, Irem also made a few other shooters like In The Hunt and Gallop.

[ 12 ] = Treasure
This developer holds the title for having the most overpriced titles under its belt. Treasure is the maker of shooters like Ikaruga, Bangaio, and Radiant Silvergun, as well as action games like Silouhette Mirage, Gunstar Heroes, and Mischief Makers.

[ 13 ] = Seibu
Yet another old school developer, Seibu gave us the many entries of the Raiden series, and hopefully many more in the future.

[ 14 ] = Tecmo
Dead Or Alive comes to mind when I think of Tecmo.

[ 15 ] = Visco
Not known for fighters or shooters, Visco impresses with the Breakers series, as well as a cool shooter that I forgot the name of.

[ 16 ] = Sammy
Another company not known for fighters, Sammy/Arc System Works released Guilty Gear upon the masses.

[ 17 ] = Arcadia

Home of Bleeding Through, Adamantium, Throwdown, and Eighteen Visions.

[ 27 ] = deftones
Metal from Sacto.

[ 28 ] = eBay
Though I have an eBay buying habit no prevention program could cure, eBay is, religiously speaking, a "Godsend."

The best site on the massive, information-filled, porn-ridden operation we affectionately refer to as 'The Internet.'

A terrible site on a great server.

[ 31 ] = Most Precious Blood
Indecision is gone, but will never be forgotten...

[ No Thanks ] = Please Die
No respect to the assholes who nearly got me killed. I will always hate you motherfuckers for everything you did and 'stand' for. Someday your karma will catch up with you. With people like you, our society will continue to deteriorate, spiraling out of control, sending what's left into a wasteland of obliterated ambitions and dreams. People like you back-stabbing rats make me fucking sick. Human life and differences should be respected and understood, not considered an egotistical value for you motherfuckers to have a profitable means out of.
