Drunk Video Gaming

Post by JimLahey »

I know I'm not the only one out there who fires up some video game after a long night of drinking (or during!). We've had a thread about movies to get drunk to which was fantastic, now lets see what gamers are playing when loaded.

My vote goes for Call of Duty 4, I seem to be a horrific killer when drunk, when I'm undrunk I just seem to do ok.
Every once in a while a good solid oldie is best. X-com!!!

Drunken gamers unite!

Since I was too young to do it first time around, I'm now hooked on GoldenEye and Mario Kart multiplayers while drunk.

Games I like while drunk: Civilization, my old Dukes of Hazzard video game (but I'm not as good drunk as undrunk, so I can't get super into it while drunk), and Karaoke Revolution

When the wife is asleep or just at work late, I like a few beers and whatever my latest purchase is, lately Gears of War 3.

If I've got the house completely to myself for 24 hours or more, I'll fire up GTA IV or similar open world deal that I can explore while taking down a bottle of bourbon. Once my play starts suffering, I'll switch to a movie or TV. Something more passive.

And the only multiplayer I attempt while drunk is Guitar Hero or Rock Band.

I used to play a lot of Rome:Total War while drinking wine and wearing a bedsheet like a toga. I found it made for some interesting tactical decisions which I probably wouldn't have made if undrunk and/or wearing pants.

I'll generally enjoy a few beers when playing most games, but probably not first person shooters which need a bit more in the way of hand-eye-coordination. I find strategy and role playing titles are more conducive to some drunkening. I'm also waiting patiently for Skyrim, and expect to get through a fair bit of mead whilst playing that...

Starcraft2. I'm good at producing marines fast.
When younger I've been through Pirates of the Monkey Island 2 in a day.
That is all I have to say.
No,

Wait...
I've beaten Chaos Strikes Back with all my characters trained up to Archmaster. Including the ninja competency, yes.

I recently played SC2 for a good 2 hours after pub with some vodka with me(couldn't catch me some sleep). Suprisingly I managed to win 5 out of 7 games. I don't even recall 2 last games.

Whenever I get into a FPS WWII game, I like to borrow my buddy's war helmet. I turn out all the lights, turn the volume up to 11, and get down with that shit.

What is this "video game" you speak of?
