A lot has happened in the past two decades in the world of PC gaming. People cheer with titles such as those of Half Life and Starcraft. Game studios made so much buck that some even jumped into the mosh pit of the concert of the stock market.

 

Boom! Headshot to glory!

 

But go back to your seats, Blizzard and Valve LLC. This article is dedicated the memory of the game companies that brought us the classics…

 

1. Pandemic Studios

 

So now you’ve probably heard of the Star Wars Battlefront game that was released in 2015. Before that, however, was a game with literally the same name – by another long-dead company. Sad, isn’t it?

 

Pandemic Studios is known for titles such as Lord of The Rings: Conquest and the first two Star Wars: Battlefront games. (Hopefully someone from Electronic Arts or DICE isn’t reading this article.) Pandemic’s version of Star Wars: Battlefront and Star Wars: Battlefront 2 were made for the Playstation 2, XBOX, and the PC.They ran pretty well, and included space battles even without DLCs… if they had them at all (do they? I know EA does a LOT, and they make you buy products again and again.).
Star Wars: Battlefront 3 was about to get released until that time when Pandemic shut down. Luckily, a fan-made version is in the works – which it seems, is also starting to go down the drain.

 

2. Black Isle Studios

 

Move over, Bethesda! Here comes – ugh, I’m not in the mood to make a marketing stint right now, especially for that of a dead game company.

 

Black Isle Studios is the company that made the Fallout universe. (No, millenials – I did the research. Stop raging and read on.) They made the Fallout universe, the technology in it, the canon, the countries, et cetera, et cetera. Bethesda simply bought the whole thing from them when they got bankrupt.

 

They dissolved later on.

 

3. Westwood

 

Remember Tanya, Yuri, and the psychic otaku schoolgirls? Red Alert 2 was a big game in the early Y2K. Everyone who played it loved it – so much so that people want remakes.

 

Westwood Studios Is a revolutionary game developing company. The made the canon of the game character Kane, and some things to consider are the fact that their signature of many sub-types in one faction type has been copied by later companies. I won’t be naming them to avoid conflict with my supervisor. (She hates it when her favorite companies get mentioned, and badly too.)

 

4. Atari

 

Finally, we have Atari.

 

Atari, Atari, Atari. A company, and also a game console. Honestly, I haven’t seen the console, only heard of it, but nonetheless, to hear of something so classic stop production means that our favorites today such as the Sony Playstation or the Microsoft XBOX might one day come to a close. Let’s cross our fingers that they don’t trip on dog poop, eh?
