This is not a perfect list of all publishers and their top games. While I took from the top 300 wargames on BGG, I also ignored publishers with one-off games, fantasy wargames, and older  companies like Avalon Hill, Jolly Green Games, & SPI that are no longer in business, or under new ownership.

I also stopped listing "top games" after ten. If you look on BGG, it's clear that GMT & MMP dominates the entire list.
