I mean both companies constantly make tons of games and seem to be both popular and successful. And both make quality products. Nyone agree?

Donut games is better, I wish they'd get the attention they truly deserve. However I'm pretty sure Gameloft is more popular...

A better way I think to describe them would be the game loft of the 2d genre.

My 2 cents is that I agree that Donut Games does need to be recognized more than they have been. Both companies do make great games though.

Meh. None of either company's game really keeps my interest for long.

Betas: Victory Day, Victory March, Zombwich, Mission Europa, Shadow Era, Slice It!, Baseball Superstars 2011, Queen's Crown, Aralon: Sword and Shadow, Zombie Runaway, Third Blade, Tower Defense: Lost Earth

That means they're similar then? In a bad way, but still similar

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

They're similar in they don't appeal to me. Otherwise, the games they make are totally different. Pretty much every Gameloft game is a clone, has no content updates, and very repetitive. Donut Games, on the other hand, have a few original games, have occasional content updates (emphasis on occasional), and while they aren't completely repetitive, their games just aren't too fun for me.

No, dg doesn't want to make profits. Thats why I have 15 games of theirs, and I have not spent a cent.

This is too intricate to even attempt a reply.
