The lights are on
BioWare co-founders Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk will accept Lifetime Achievement Awards during this year's Game Developers Conference.
Dubbed the "BioWare Doctors," Muzyka and Zeschuk met while attending medical school at the University of Alberta. Their shared interest in video games led them to full-time careers in the industry, where they produced influential series including Mass Effect, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Dragon Age at BioWare. Muzyka and Zeschuk stepped down from BioWare last year to focus on family and solo projects.
The GDC awards are held yearly in San Francisco to celebrate the world’s top video games and developers. This year's Choice Awards will be hosted by Double Fine President and CEO Tim Schafer, while Andy Schatz, creator of indie game Monaco, will be hosting the Independent Games Festival Awards. The Game Developer’s Choice Awards ceremony will be held on March 27. For more information, visit the official website.

I've loved Bioware games, they usually make the top-notch of the industry! Glad to see this, but dang... A Lifetime Achievement Award is truly something!
Rock on guys! You deserve it for making one of the best developers around.
This is great news. They really do deserve it.
Awesome, they deserve this award.
Good for them.
they deserve that. yes,
this award they deserve greatly
Man I hated to see these guys leave game development. They were the driving forces behind some of the best games I've ever played. Congrats to them on the award. There are a lot of big mouthed developers who do a lot more yapping than great game making, but that wasn't these guys.
It's too bad they aren't with Bioware but I'm sure they left it in good hands. It's nice to see such talent getting recognized within the community, especially when everyone knows they deserve it.
Just after leaving BioWare? Bad timing, I guess.
They are only receiving this reward now because of their abrupt retirement from the industry. It's unfortunate as there is so much more they could have done to continue innovating in this industry. Their talent and vision will be missed.
You guys truly deserve it! This is great.
