* BTeamSequel: They've been on both ends of this at some point; Creator/ObsidianEntertainment was the B-team responsible for ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2'' and ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicIITheSithLords''. [=BioWare=] themselves were the B-team responsible for ''VideoGame/MDK2'', taking over after Creator/ShinyEntertainment made [[VideoGame/{{MDK}} the first game]].
* FandomLifeCycle: [=BioWare=] fandom has entered Stage 3 with the double-punch combo of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' and ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' (though some would argue that it happened as early as ''VideoGame/{{Knights of the Old Republic}}''). Stage 2 has been reached with ''Videogame/BaldursGateII'', and time will only tell whether and when they fully transition to Stage 4 (''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' and ''[[VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic SW:TOR]]'' have so far been unsuccessful at bringing that about, while ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', and ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' have only fueled the BrokenBase, preventing upwards progression).
