Many fans are critical of BioWare when it comes to certain inadequacies that blame on Electronic Arts.

But the founders have a stern message for those doubters- they are still calling the shots on the games they make.

"I always chuckle because we are EA, we're BioWare -- we're both, and we still have huge autonomy in terms of what we do," co-founder Greg Zeschuk recently told Eurogamer.

BioWare founders say they make the decisions, not parent company, EA. They appear passionate about the fact that they still have a direct hand in the games that they are creating.

There are some things that have changed, however. "Way, way back, years ago, we didn't even consider those [commercial elements], we just made stuff," Zeschuk explains.

Point well taken. Back then, the commercial elements also did not matter so much. Video games were not such big business. The market was smaller and more tightly knit. Companies have to grow with the times if they want to keep up.

“The docs” as they are commonly known, even admitted that they still find time in their hectic schedules to play and enjoy the games they are making.

"Most of our games, before we ship them, we finish them several times. The Old Republic, we're probably at that level or higher, in terms of hours," Zeschuk says.
