Overall Satisfaction with Visual Studio IDE

We use Visual Studio to build a variety of great video games in C# with Unity. We build everything from simple VR applications to advanced MMORPGs all using Visual Studio as our primary code editor and debugger. It blows away the alternatives when it comes to features, functionality, and performance.
  • Debugging in Visual Studio is second to none
  • Code highlighting & syntax coloring
  • Building cross-platform C# games & applications
  • It could be better at refactorings. With Resharper, this isn't an issue though.
  • Time Savings
  • Integrated Testing
  • Building the software that drives all our business
Visual Studio is the perfect IDE to get started in for new developers who want to build video games or Windows/web applications in C#. I'd highly recommend it to anyone working in .net in general either at a C# shop or doing game development with Unity. In the past, I've used it for everything from enterprise internal applications for huge companies like Qualcomm, Sony, and Intel, to scalable web applications for startups.
