Really the core of this is site is to enjoy the two finer parts of life and we try to point the better of the two worlds combined. Since starting Beer and Joysticks we have gotten a lot of why would combine the two, and a lot of time we just laughed back at them.
But anyway back to business of drinking and playing games. Is this normal I think so, I have meet a lot of lonely and depressed people online, so it only makes sense to me that a little drinking is going on. I think more so in online gaming than any other form, unless it’s an organized LAN party or something like that.
It has been my experience that most of the guilds that I have been in had some if not a lot of drinking going on while playing the game. I remember having to reschedule raids and groups, based on who needed to make a beer run.
The people that I game with today I know drink, but they have toned down that as they have got older, have kids and are for the most part responsible.
Do I drink and play games?
The pitiful existence that is me has to admit I have had a few drunken gaming moments during my time as a gamer.
When I was living in Japan, we used to have a Grand Torismo night that normally started after being in the local pub for a few hours too long. So everyone would come to my place to my place because I had a good setup with a PlaySeat Evolution and steering wheel and pedals.
Amazingly some nights we would set some really fast times that for some reason couldn’t be duplicated while sober, but that was rare. For the most part we just caused wrecks and laughed a lot.
As it is now I don’t really drink and game as much as I did back then, a couple beers here and there is about all that I’m up to now.
So today I ask you, do you drink while gaming?
