BioWare is one of the most respected developers in the videogame industry. From Baldur's Gate to Mass Effect, BioWare has consistently dictated taste rather than react to it. Its pioneering sense has not just lead to admiration, but also to a catalog of million-plus sellers, which is precisely why publishing giant Electronic Arts scooped it up in an expensive 2007 acquisition.
Thanks to its groundbreaking PC and console role-playing games, BioWare has both elevated the genre and established Canada as a world power in the gaming industry. With their biggest game -- Mass Effect 2 -- now arriving, and their fifteenth anniversary just weeks away, it's safe to say that BioWare is just getting started.
