Thirty Days of Video Games Day TwentySeven – Favorite Game Developer

by Jennifer KibbleApril 2, 2011

Owned now by EA, Bioware 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, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Neverwinter Nights, KotOR and will be giving us Mass Effect 3 and Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO 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 Bioware does, is that they are not afraid and are willing to break boundaries. For example they have allowed the main character in Dragon Age 2 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.

Check out this article about the “straight male gamer” and Bioware’s reaction.
