The Canadian game development studio, BioWare, based in Edmonton, Alberta, was originally conceived when its founders were still medical students studying at the University of Alberta. Now the studio is one of Canada's premiere, entirely homegrown success stories in the industry, and it's founders, Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk, have had their expertise recognized both at home and abroad.

Kotaku recently highlighted a lecture given by the doctors at the request of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, better known as BAFTA. In the lecture, they present their opinions on how games are an emerging media for art, and even cite Tolstoy and his definition of art as a butress for their own argument. A video is included here with highlights of their talk.
