What now defunct game company would you bring back to life?

Ultimate Play the Game, the owners of which also started Rare.

They started crediting Rare in Ultimate releases to get the name noticed, they then sold ultimate for a huge profit but kept rare. As it was already known from Ultimate games the legend was born so to speak.

I loved the old Ultimate games, Sabrewulf, Alien 8 etc. Would love to see the Stamper brothers give us a new project.

Whoever made Bloody Roar....Hudson, I think. Series needs a reboot, it could be fantastic.

You may not be as good as I am, I may not compare to you, but until you prove either; I'd wager we'd both be better off staying quiet about it.

Does Rare count? I know they're still around, but they may as well be defunct. Fifteen years ago Rare was a freakin' legend, producing gem after gem after gem. These days they pretty much just make shovelware Kinect games.

Ugh. If only Rare hadn't been bought by Microsoft. If only.

Calling Rare a current game company is like calling Michael Vick a football player after a car accident that renders him paralyzed from the neck down.
