Playing through Darksiders from the first time right now, on my 1080p TV with a controller on my PC, has really reminded me how good to me THQ has been these past few years. Between all the Warhammer games from Relic, Metro 2033, Darksiders, Red Faction: Guerrilla, Darksiders, and Saints Row: The Third they have been putting out some of my favorite games of this generation. Not only that but, as a PC gamer primarily, their PC versions have never given me any trouble. I've always been able to play silky smooth 60 fps stuff with a controller if I want and it works flawlessly.
Now, their output is as spotty as any big publisher (and they've had more than a few clunkers even these past few years) and their financial state is more of a headline than anything else these days. However, compared to Activision, EA, and Ubisoft, I have to give it up to THQ for really putting out a lot of good product for me to enjoy and fell good about. Anyone else out there feel the same as I do? In terms of big game publishers anyway?
Edit: Okay I have to say Take-Two/2K has also been hot lately but I still would rank them second below THQ for me.
