GamePro gives us a look of the top 8 most powerful video game studios.  Maxis Software makes it on the list:

Founded: 1987

Headquarters: Emeryville, California

You might not know it, but Maxis Software is the studio behind the best-selling computer game of all time, The Sims. Thanks to its feminine appeal, and excluding earlier games like SimCity, The Sims has sold more than 100 million games worldwide (!) — the third best-selling franchise of all time. It’s no wonder then that company’s next (not to mention prolonged) god game, Spore, is one of the most anticipated games of 2008.

Head on over to GamePro to see what other studios made the list!
