Beer Drinking and Gaming
With a name like name Beer and Joysticks is bound to come up. Before we get started let’s just get the legal crap out-of-the-way. If you drink, than drink responsibly and please be of the proper age for your state county or where ever you might live.
So I recently asked a group of people who I game with on a regular basis what are you favorite games to play while drinking and this what I got for answers.
Let’s see there’s popcorn and a movie, beer and pizza, why not beer and a video game!
Building with beer!
As amazing as it might be that the overwhelming winner of the people I asked was Minecraft. I guess I understand Minecraft isn’t a game that requires a lot of skill and can be played as more of a relaxing game than most.
Minecraft is slower paced so it seems like it is a good drinking game, until you get blown up by a creeper!
The engineer in is saying not sure how well you can build structures after a few beers, but what the hell there are no inspectors or government agencies to worry about in Minecraft. I say build away!
Drinking your battlefield worries away!
The other game that came in a strong second was Call of Duty. Well I can’t say grabbing an assault rifle and six-pack isn’t the most responsible thing to do in real life, but it sure is fun in-game.
Call of duty is the perfect companion to a couple of beers, besides that kid has been trash talking you all night, put your big boy pants on and drown your sorrows in a nice IPA. Feel better don’t you, now throw a grenade his direction!
The MMO Blues.
The next most common was a game type more than a game, that can be mixed with beer is your favorite MMO. Once again I understand this because there is a lot socializing with guild mates so this is a good place to relax and release your worries away.
Although I don’t recommend a night of heavy drinking before your next raid party.
So there you have it, this is what I learned from a small group of gamers that like to tip a few back during the gaming session, so now it’s your chance to let us know what you think.
So today I ask you, what is your favorite poison during gaming and what game are you playing?
