    I'm not done with this top 10 yet, and I couldn't be bothered to read the previous posts. Me am lazy bastard. So maybe I've missed something...

    Infocom?
    Sierra???

    On a somewhat lesser note: Konami?

    Oh, and someone may have pointed this out already, but EA merely distributes the Battlefield series. They're developed by Digital Illusions CE. kthx

    DICE is owned by EA in full.

    Which is damned unfortunate, still not EA though. Let's just hope EA doesn't get bored of Battlefield in the future otherwise we'll have another dead developer.

    Disclaimer that I haven't listened (yet)

    Microprose was the first game company that I ever really noticed because every game of theirs that I played I loved. Pirates! is my favorite game of all time and Red Storm Rising is an underappreciated gem. Covert Action another great one that nobody talks about.

    I still judge sports games by the Microprose Soccer standard (called Keith Von Eron's here in the States, whoever that is)
