BioWare asking for fans help with Dragon Age 3
BioWare took quite a beating and has obviously learned its lesson with the Mass Effect 3 ending controversy. They are taking the fans into consideration this time and are now asking for help with shaping Dragon Age 3.
Executive Producer Mark Darrah asked fans on the BioWare Blog: ”What does Dragon Age mean to you, and where would you like to see it go? We’re excited to hear what you have to say.” The team announced that each month they will hold an open discussion on their blog based on one aspect of the game. Here is a little bit from the postt:
“Beginning today, we’ll do a series of questions and discussions around Dragon Age. Consider this a conversation between fans, the community team, and the developers. Everyone at BioWare is incredibly excited about the future of the franchise but we’re interested in what you have to say. Every month, we will discuss a topic or question about Dragon Age and game development. You will have one week to post your thoughts, desires, and hopes before we close the thread for review. Moderators and developers will pop into the thread to chat every now and again, so keep an eye out.”
At this point it doesn’t matter how much access BioWare gives the fans or how many comments it takes on their boards, some people inevitably will be angry at Dragon Age 3. It is nearly impossible to avoid when you are in control of a major franchise. However, as long as they offer a good story for the game, most fans should be pleased.
What are your thoughts? Do you like the fact that they are asking you, the fans, what you'd want to see in the game?
