Technically California if I'm not mistaken, but there's so many studios there too that I doubt you'd be able to get your share.
Which state/city has the most game dev workers (if this makes sense)?

1. Which state/city has the most game dev workers (if this makes sense)?
2. Would I be able to get a 6 man office in somewhere like Dallas/NY/Seattle with a budget of $3-4,000 a month if not how much am I looking to spend?

Yea, the Bay Area is the highest density of Game developers in the USA. Austin is also pretty huge but nothing beats the Bay area. Of course all of these areas pale in comparison to Montreal especially when you consider that being in Montreal means that you get up to 35% of your labour costs refunded to you at the end of the year and in terms of game dev's per capita it's even higher than California.
It's an amazing feeling to be running into game devs everywhere you go in this city, to have game posters be proudly displayed alongside movie posters at government buildings at demonstrations of the city's accomplishments for the year. The game dev culture here is pervading and everywhere you go, I wouldn't recommend any other city besides montreal to a development looking to setup shop here.
