Bioware hanchos on 2003
Interview - posted by Saint_Proverbius on Sun 28 December 2003, 20:27:23Tags: BioWare; Neverwinter Nights
There's an interview with Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk of BioWare about the games of 2003. Here's a taste of the fun:
Has 2003 been a good year for videogames, in your opinion? What have been some of your own personal highlights of the year? And what titles have you/seen played in recent times that you would say have pushed the boundaries of videogames?
Dr. Ray Muzyka: [STUFF DELETED]
I'd also hope that fans see that some of BioWare's recent RPG titles are pushing the envelope - for example, Neverwinter Nights was unprecedented in its ability to allow modding and fan-created content (with over 3000 free fan-created mods now available for download and more mods than ever being released following on the release of the Hordes of the Underdark expansion this Christmas it's arguably the most-modded game in existence).
And Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was probably one of the most cinematic/immersive role-playing experiences on console and PC in recent times, what with the full voice over and lip-synching on all characters, and the ability to meaningfully role-play as either a good or evil Jedi and have your choices impact the storyline.
Two things: Most modded game in existance - Yeah, wake me when there's a total conversion of Neverwinter Nights. Meaningfully role-play an evil Jedi - Not exactly true, is it? I don't think Darth Vader would have allowed someone to mock him publically and walk away, something that happens several times in Knights of the Old Republic.
