The lights are on
If you had to pick a home for Darksiders, Saints Row, and the rest of THQ's game library, where would it be?
This is a serious question facing fans of THQ franchises considering each of them will be on the auction block come January 22. Warner Bros. Interactive, Electronic Arts, and Ubisoft are all reportedly kicking the tires on the struggling publisher's various projects, but nothing is stopping Activision, Take Two, or anyone else from bidding as well.
To see your favorite franchises thrive in the coming years, where would you like to see them land?

PLEASE NOT ELECTRONIC ARTS. Please God, don't let Electronic Arts take Saints Row.
I have no preference for publisher. I honestly just want what is best for the franchises that deserve to stick around. Saints Row, Metro, and Darksiders are just a few examples, and I hope to see these franchises' lives remain unaffected by the unfortunate dilemma THQ is currently facing.
Most series can probably go to Warner Brothers. I think that they do a decent job. Company of Heroes can go to Activision-Blizzard. Blizzard will probably try to make CoH closer to Starcraft, but they are pretty good at making RTS's. The only problem is that it would be years before we see another title. I would like for Saint's Row to go to Rockstar (Take-Two,) but that leaves the risk that they'll abandon the franchise so that there is no competition for GTA.
Take Two should snatch up Saint's Row and never make another one so that GTA will have no competition. That would be the smart thing to do.
IGN had a good article on why Sony should buy up these games...
I would say give everything to Gearbox or 2k.
Sony should get it all. You here that, Sony!? No, of course not. Sony or Ubisoft or Square Enix.
Warner Bros. They will make sure its high quality, like most their recent games.
Square Enix: Metro and Darksiders
Take Two: Saints Row and Stick of Truth
Rockstar: Red Faction
That is all.
i think they should partner with 2k games
Saints Row's is San Andreas but on steroids so it will be good with Square. Darksiders goes to Ubisoft, but not come out every year. Metro is an interesting game so I pick Bethseda.
