BioWare on Autonomy

An interview on Eurogamer talks with BioWare co-founders Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk, who respond to questions about their level of autonomy since being acquired by Electronic Arts, saying they have "huge autonomy" and that it "is not actually remotely true" that EA is running the show. "We're not being forced to do anything or told to do anything. We make the decisions. We take input," Zeschuk tells them. "It's just funny when people say that, because it's not actually remotely true." Here's a bit more:

"At the end of the day, we're responsible for the quality of the content and games we release, and we're committed to try and always take feedback really seriously from our fans and be humble about how we take it - use it to make the next games better," Ray Muzyka added.

"You're only as good as your next game, and that's the way we've always felt. That's still very much a philosophy at BioWare; quality in our products and delivering each game and exceeding expectations and always trying to delight and surprise our consumers. That's still what we try and do."

Well if what they are saying is actually true, then that's even more pathetic.

The over-saturation of DLC, the dumbing down of gameplay elements and the moving away from the things that made your reputation stellar in the first place. If this is all your doing, then you're an even bigger set of tools than I'd thought. If it wasn't EA, you have absolutely no defense against the things people have been saying.

The amusing part is that your original formula worked. It made you hugely successful. And DA:O proved that people weren't opposed to the old-school RPG elements that have always defined your games.

Contrary to what people may say, I'm fine with Mass Effect being the flagship console series for Bioware. Its still fun to play on PC and I'm not too concerned with it. But when you take the core of what made you a great developer and throw it away in favor of an 'awesome button', then I'm less inclined to trust you in any of your future releases.
