    A giant? They made less than 60m Euros in revenue in 2017...

    <looks at own 2017 tax return>

    Big enough, I'd say.

    Judging by my steam friend list the core of the problem for starbreeze is that everyone abandoned Payday 2 in favour of Warframe.

    Ah, but if you use the word "giant" for the biggest, you rob yourself of the opportunity to use the word "behemoth" - or even, if you're feeling particularly whimsical, "leviathan."

    You know what? With a vocabulary such as yours you should write a book or something. Yes, I'm good at giving useful advice to strangers. ;)

    I still stand by what I said: they are not giants. They are big and they make more money than me, though.

    Oh, I entirely concur. I need something below "giant," but that still means "makes more in a year than I'll make in a lifetime." Mammoth? No, still too big. Jumbo? Brobdingnagian? Titanic? Fits in well with the underlying theme of a sinking ship, that one...

    I like the last one as well. Quite fitting. By the way, it made me wonder how a game developer/publisher of that size could think it's a good idea to let your cashflow depend on a 10m payment from another company. That's 1/6 of Starbreeze's yearly revenue...
