Retired from Video Games, BioWare's Co-Founder is Enjoying Lots of Beer

Greg Zeschuk co-founded BioWare in 1995 and left it in September, after seeing his studio deliver Mass Effect, Baldur's Gate and some of video gaming's most notable series over the better part of two decades. What's he doing in his retirement? Well, he's drinking beer.


And producing videos about beer and brewing, and the people who make and enjoy beer. This is the second video in Zeschuk's series "The Beer Diaries," which in addition to featuring interviews and documentary shorts will also deliver apps and other beer-related interactive experiences at some point in the future. Zeschuk's starting with the craft-brewing community of Austin, Texas, but as he says in this interview, he hopes "The Beer Diaries" may someday take a bigger scope.


"Being in video games was really cool," he said (Zeschuk also was a physician, specializing in geriatrics, before founding BioWare). "I flew all over the world, talked to people, saw a lot of amazing things. I kind of want to do that for beer," he says.

It's a shame the Gregs left. They made some truly spectacular games, including SWTOR and ME3, despite their respective problems. They did not deserve the treatment they got from "fans."
