Guer­rilla Games Per­son­ally, I feel that Un­charted 2:

Among Thieves still stands at the apex of videogame evo­lu­tion. Play­ing it was such a game-changer for me – it got ev­ery beat right, from the pitch-per­fect pac­ing of the ac­tion to the vi­brant and beau­ti­fully de­signed en­vi­ron­ments. It also proved be­yond a shadow of a doubt that great game­play, cin­e­matic-qual­ity vi­su­als and en­gross­ing sto­ry­telling don’t need to be mu­tu­ally exclusive qual­i­ties in a game. Other ti­tles have reached equal lev­els of ex­cel­lence since Un­charted 2 came out in 2009, but as far as I’m con­cerned none have man­aged to sur­pass it en­tirely.
