BioWare’s co-founder, Ray Muzyka was asked about what dissapoints him about the gaming industry today, and his simple answer was that “There’s too many games released,”.
“It’s interesting, because it’s very, very busy, it makes it very hard as a player to keep up. The releases clump up – even though that is changing a little bit.”
“For us, we have to play our games, play competitor’s games, play other relevant games, and play the handful of games we just really want to play more of and finish,” he added. “I try and play two-or three hours a night, but that’s hard and it’s not enough.” he said.
Muzyka also said that his favorite game of all time is “probably” the original System Shock.
“It was awesome. I think I finished that game four times in ten years. I loved the way it was the first true 3D adventure.” he said.
“The shooter mechanic in 3D meant it was very hard to control in a way, but the richness of the world was amazing. Our IT guys hate us for it, but we use a fan website with patches to make sure System Shock will work on our current gen laptops.” he added.
BioWare’s very own Dragon Age 2 is set for a March 2011 release.
