| Fan Negativity Was Too Much for Bioware Owners - briefly|
|(hx) 06:36 PM EDT - Sep,28 2012 |
| NowGamer has an interview in which Trent Oster suggested that the negative fan reaction to Mass Effect 3 and Star Wars: The Old Republic were things that pushed Ray and Greg into leaving the gaming industry.
Ex-BioWare co-founder and Baldur's Gate developer, Trent Oster,
believes the negative fan reaction to Mass Effect 3 and Star Wars: The
Old Republic could have attributed to Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk's
decision to leave BioWare and the games industry.
Speaking to NowGamer, Oster explained that on his last meeting with
Zeschuk, the developer was visibly exhausted.
"The last time I met up with [Greg], I felt his exhaustion," explained
Oster. "Punch out, eject, get the hell out", was my suggestions to him
and it hit closer to the mark than I had realised. I also think the
Mass Effect 3 fan reaction and the Old Republic fans negativity was
just too much."
"You have to love games and you put your heart into them to create
them. To have the fans creating petitions against the work is pretty
hard to take, especially when you've spent the last few years crunching
overtime to try and ship a game. It can be hard to shut off the
overwhelming negativity the internet spews forth, especially when it
has your name or the name of your company in it."
Though Oster wasn't surprised when Zeschuk announced his retirement
from the industry, when Muzyka did the same it did come as a shock.
"Ray surprised me," explained Oster. "I had him pegged as an EA lifer.
My thought was the Ray agenda was to first usurp Frank Gibeau and then
later John Riccotello as CEO."
"I'm sure the internal culture at EA had pinned the Old Republic
conversion to free to play as a failure and hung that completely on
Ray, so that would have hurt his upward climb. But, I figured he would
fight harder. EA upper management must have been even worse than I

|You realized you screwed up.
I wish you did that earlier though.

|Of course fans will have a negative reaction when your cashing in is so obvious. Good riddance and R.I.P.|

|Reminds me of apple, permanently sitting on their laurels, even when they produce shit.
Apple maps is a pile of incompetent, amateur 3rd party garbage. Yet
Millions of sheep buy the I phone ## regardless, Mass Effect 3 lost
the plot and the script writing was crap, pure and simple. 1&2 were superb!
Either follow on, using the same tried and trusted, or just forget it. They failed big time and should have taken it on the chin and be man enough to admit, you fucked up. Instead management kicked their arses.
Apple should have the same theory applied, but they can't do no wrong, other than recommend that apple devotees download rivals map programs. Excuse me, rivals?! Who's fooling who here.... Fallout Vegas was another pile of excrement... Cash cow.... People are vegetables, there's no more personal decisions, just follow the fellow sheep and accept that it's okay to buy out of the box JUNK! Then moan when it doesn't work, even although the Internet is full of fucking grief about said product...... Imagine another 30yrs of human devolving? Sad or what.

|If that was the case, Mass Effect 3 should have been very much different.|

|Yeah stop being arrogant and start listening...|
