The Develop 100 Critics' Choice list in association with Ukie is now live - free for existing readers, or just £1.49

Develop 100: Who made the best game in the world?

Develop’s ranking of the best games of all time as voted for by game critics is now live.

The Develop 100 Critics’ Choice asked a panel of over 200 journalists to vote for the best games ever made. Critics also voted for which company they consider to be the best game development studio ever.

Published in association with Ukie, the list features high-profile nods for revered developers such as Valve and Nintendo – but some surprises too with prominent places for indies like Thatgamecompany and Mojang.

If you bought last year’s Develop 100 on iOS (via Develop’s magazine app), the new listing is available as a free update

Alternatively, we’ve cut the price of the book – which includes both last year’s list of the world’s most commercially successful studios and this new listing – at the reduced price of £1.49.

This latest edition of the Develop 100 is also available in browser here.

Further editions of the Develop 100 will be published starting in June, in association with Ukie. 

The Critics’ Choice list provides you with a definitive guide to the best games and developers of all time, and includes a variety of supplementary data and analysis. You can find a taster of what’s inside the 100 in our commentary piece here.

The Develop 100 has been published by Intent Media for eight years, and has used various data points including revenues and review scores to each year find out who the best performing studios are.

After the Critics’ Choice list, three further volumes of the Develop 100 will be published this year. We will reveal which insightful metrics they will use at a later date.

Develop 100 is read by the biggest decision makers across the games business, and is the perfect platform for service and development companies to raise the profile of their business and brand.
