Do only small level/indie game companies give quality service

Is just me or is the good service a must at only small level game companies, like Telltale games ,excellent prices get physical copies for free when you buy all the episodes you only have to pay for shipping, quality titles and I can go on and on.

What surprised me most was a little level visual novel company Hanako games give you backup copies if you own the game for 5 dollars http://www.hanakogames.com/cds.shtml .

Also there was another small level indie level company. I emailed them questions about the plot and they answered all of them and when I said that my save file was broken and I needed a save file at a certain scene they gave it to me.

Besides Valve are there any big fishes that care and if no why?
Are all big level companies EA and Ubisoft?

  • Small companies tend to have smaller audiences, and therefore it's easier to keep them happy.

    Larger companies, like EA, have huge audiences. Their games sell millions of copies. That's millions of people to keep happy. It's just not going to happen.

    I would also like your opinion on what you think is excellent service.
  • I'll let you know when I get some. :)
  • No, quite often small developers are horrid at basic service and function and suffer from a bit of a God Complex. Better off going through bigger companies every time.
  • Well, with small companies I guess it's a toss of a coin. Heads, great service. Tails, shitty.
  • I've found this is generally the case, but among the larger companies, I've always found Blizzard to have great service.

    Yeah Blizzard and Valve are 2 big companies known for excellent service. But what is excellent service?

    So, you call spending weeks of not getting you your hacked account back and then just forgetting about it until you remind them about it for 10th freakin' time as literally half a year goes by (Blizzard) and literally refusing to remove your region-locked games so you could just buy them again from Steam store itself (Valve) excellent service? Good to know. :p

    I had them remove 9 games from my list without problem. Maybe the German Steam support is just better?
  • If I wanted to, I could just ask them to remove the GOTY edition of Oblivion from my list so I could get the GOTY Deluxe edition. Or whatever it was called. Steam isn't that difficult with such things.
