    I can't say I've played any THQ games besides Saint's Row 3, but it's one of the funnest games I've played in the last year. It's a shame the company went bankrupt. At least it sounds like most employees will be continuing their work at other companies.

    At least Relic went to a good home.

    Yeah I think THQ failed to build a brand. In all the years they were in business I can't associate a single game with them. Take 2, Ubisoft and Bathesda have gone far out of their way to produce games nobody else would make.

    The majority of their stuff was licensed games. I had no idea Saint's Row was even them. But that's just because I don't play it.

    Damn! I haven't even played Darksiders yet.
    Sad to see them go, they made some pretty good games.
