I would love to work for Bioware. That would be beyond awesome.

Has anyone thought that they might eventually make thier own company. I've think about it form time to time but it seems like it would be a whole lot of work. But I like the thought of such a challenge. This of course would be a little while down the road.

The first three that jump to mind, in alphabetical order:

Bohemia Interactive
Firaxis
Koei

Of those, only one is in the United States. Now I have to add "Get passport photo taken" to my to-do list.

It would be wonderful for me to find a job near where I live (in Montreal).

My first choice is Ubisoft Montreal.

But I would like to work for other great companies, such as:

- EA Montreal (Army of Two, working now on Deus Ex 3)
- Beenox (Activision division in Quebec City, working on a new Guitar Hero)
- Some other great Indie companies

Elsewhere:

- Bioware
- Bethesda softworks
- Blizzard/Activision

Well... I'm just dreaming here, of course...

Ubisoft Montreal would be awesome as well. working on the next Assassin's Creed. I love the thought of that, even though it's not an RPG.

The best thing about Ubisoft Montreal is the fact that there is a pretty good chance of any of us getting in. It is currently the largest studio in the world, at 1,600 people.

As long as you don't mind being the cog in a machine.

PS I don't.
