BioWare - BioDocs Made Games the Good Way @ Venture Beat
In an editorial about the BioDocs leaving the industry, Venture Beat's Dean Takehashi shares his thoughts about the BioDocs and how "they build games the nice way." Here's a quote about a personal experience with the Ray and Greg, the doctors at Bioware, after Dean reviewed the first Mass Effect game.
But the reaction from the doctors was kind. When I talked to them about it, they said that my review had taught them something. I’m sure they weren’t happy with what I wrote, but they didn’t say that. They said they appreciated the second piece and instructed their team to draw lessons from my gaming experience. They made it easier to learn the proper way to play in Mass Effect 2 and said that I had influenced how they designed the sequel. A lot of other people had no patience for me — loudmouth that I had been. But the doctors didn’t drop the hammer on me, and I appreciated that. After all, they seemed to recognize that journalists are people, too. And my experience was probably similar to a lot of other gamers’ out there.
