Greg Zeschuk, co-founder of BioWare and former role-playing game supervisor at Electronic Arts, is ready to tell players which style of beer works best with a video game genre.Talking to Joystiq
, the Mass Effect and Dragon Age creator says, “I think that's probably an IPA. They've got some depth, and they've got some bite, and you want a slightly complex but very forward beer for an Action RPG.”
For adventure fans, Zeschuk recommends a barleywine, which lends itself well to sipping and has a high alcohol content.
Fighting games are best paired with an Imperial style IPA, which has a strong hop flavor and a lot of bitterness.
Shooter requires more coordination to stay competitive, which means players should try out playing while drinking a German type pilsner, with a lot of aroma but less alcohol.
