Thirty Days of Video Games Day TwentySeven – Favorite Game Developer

by on April 2, 2011
 

Owned now by EA, is hands down my favorite developer. They were founded back in 1995 in Canada and has given us such games as Jade Empire, Baldur’s Gate, , , Neverwinter Nights, KotOR and will be giving us 3 and Star Wars: The Old Republic in the (hopefully) near future.

A simple company that was started out by medical students from the University of Alberta, they’ve truly came a long way to becoming the powerhouse that they are today. One major thing that does, is that they are not afraid and are willing to break boundaries. For example they have allowed the main character in to romance whoever he or she would like to romance and all of the companions in the game are bisexual. They take chances with their games and they do not tailor to the “male gamer” but instead, to everyone.
