Edge: Valve, Mojang "Greatest Developers"

Edge Online teases how issue 250 of Edge Magazine lists the 50 greatest videogame developers in their estimation. They don't offer the list online (you have to pay for this sort of opinion), but notch spills the beans that Valve is number one as part of his incredulity that Mojang is number two, tweeting: "#2? Really? One released game and almost no proven track record. Great honor, of course, but no. ;)"

Something tells me that Edge magazine googled "game developers" and just put whoever popped up first as #1, and just went down the line that way.

I don't even agree with Valve being #1. I suspect it's because of the success of Steam, but that shouldn't count towars their devs status. The last thing they released has been Portal 2, and since then they've been puttering around with DoTa2. There have been several devs with a more impressive release schedule than that.

Yeah I'm not sure why Mojang even ranks in the top 10 but nice to see Valve get some kudos for their efforts.

Also in before someone goes "oh my god Valve just buys companies!".

At this point, I'd give Valve a lot more props for steam than I would their games. While (the games are) still good, their release schedule ends up being once in a blue moon...

I happen to agree, but kudos for being humble as usual.
