The writer who left BioWare: Eurogamer interviews Drew Karpyshyn

Eurogamer: Drew Karpyshyn not only resembles Commander Shepard facially - he created him. Drew Karpyshyn was one of BioWare's greatest ever writers. He was lead writer of cherished Star Wars role-playing game Knights of the Old Republic, and he was lead writer of Mass Effect 1, 2, and all the books in-between (not Deception). Along the way, Karpyshyn also influenced Baldur's Gate 2: Throne of Bhaal, Neverwinter Nights, Jade Empire and massive storied MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic - a job that meant he couldn't be a part of Mass Effect 3.

When he left, part of BioWare's magic went with him. You can't simply replace quality narrative.

I like his idea for the end of ME3 a lot, but honestly it still would've caused a lot of backlash.

I absolutely LOVED his work in the Star Wars Universe, specifically with the Darth Bane stuff. I've read all three books and they are fantastic.

I really didn't like the ending of the Revan book, though, but Revan is my favorite character in all of Star Wars and I had high expectations.

Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic were great games.
But, he was a great writer, too bad that he left..
