For those competitive gamers out there who want a real celebration for their victory, this beer video game awards its victor the ultimate prize: a tall cool beer.

'The Last Barfighter' is an arcade game similar to that of 'Street Fighter' in that you choose a character and button mash and bottle smash to the death. Forget about Ryu's Hadouken or Chun-Li's Spinning Bird Kick, you'll be doing epic attacks like Head Butt and Butt Slap with these crazy characters. Instead of being rewarded with tokens to buy toys at the arcade, you will have your cup filled with a refreshing brew of Big Boss beer right from the console itself.

Be sure to check out Ian Panganiban's interview for a detailed look at this beer video game and for an inside peek at his time at Trend Hunter.
