Hmm ... this is just common thinking after the fact that Max has been used in a lot of games, but this is slowly changing.
Hmm ... I don´t see how Maya can be more open ended with the way the API works with MEL scripts.
it just depends on what you want it to do
Got that right, overall Maya´s got a good grasp out of every aspect so I would say Maya´s the best. Overall. Others can be better at particles, or modelling, or whatever, but they don´t combine their tools in a single package as powerfull as A|W´s one.
My 2 cents anyway ...
