Farewell to THQ: gallery

About The Author

CNET Editor

Nic Healey can usually be found on a couch muttering about aspect ratios and 7.1 channel sound - which is helpful given that he's the home entertainment guy at CNET.

As the game studio is divided and conquered in the wake of its final collapse, we look at some of the hits (and misses) that THQ gave us over the years.

Vale, THQ. It's always sad when a game publisher or studio goes under, but THQ's tale seems particularly tragic, given its 23-year history.

In fact, THQ — which was still very much the Toy Head Quarters it began life as — published its first game back in January 1991 after it acquired Broderbund.

So, let's raise a glass to the dear, departed THQ and look back on some of its sizeable back catalogue.

HomeWorld... not a THQ property (the IP has actually been through quite a few hands: Sierra, Vivendia Universal and then back to Relic at THQ I believe...?), but all developed by Relic Entertainment... I'd be interested to know if the IP was included in the sale of Relic itself - maybe we could have a sequel on the way (finally!)... *hint hint*

An indie studio by the name of teamPixel is running an Indiegogo campaign to raise money to buy the Homeworld IP: http://www.indiegogo.com/save-homeworld
