Gaming under the influence: Top 10 drunk multiplayer games

4:52 PM on 06.07.2007 // Kif

Drinking while gaming is such a stupid thing to do, and yet I know most people this site will have tried it. It's a match made in heaven when it comes to entertaining. But playing games drunk on your own is depressing and sad, only comforted by the fact that no one will ever know (Not even yourself if you put enough liquor inside you).

So, the only real choice when it comes to drunk gaming is to invite some buddies over, crack open a few cans and get your system of choice going! Here is a list of top games to play drunk with friends. Feel free to try these out.

Oh yeah, and every time I say "Number 8!" or something, imagine that cheesy voiceover from the Screwattack videos. God, that voice makes me LOL.

NUMBER 10! - The Sims

Democracy sucks most of the time. Your voice will never be heard, and if it is, it won't be taken seriously. However, when a game gives a group of drunk people the power to be god (Or at least, in the Sims' home), you know will end up with some awesome results. The house will probably never be finished, there will be no toilet so the Sims will shit themselves, people will jump into a swimming pool even though the people playing it forgot to put a ladder so they can get out. I'm an evil bastard when it comes to this game, so I can do this while not drunk. But the creative differences between drunkards while playing this game make it all the more interesting to watch.

NUMBER 9! - Burnout Revenge

Ahhhh, the one place you can drive while drunk, kill all of your friends in beautifully destructive crashes, knock everyone in your path off the road and still be rewarded for coming first. Burnout Revenge is probably the only one of the series drunk people can play since you are no longer penalized for hitting pedestrian cars. Furiously fast with brilliant maps, you''ll find yourself clammering to takedown your friends in no time. I mean, when the game itself keeps reminding you how many people are taking your out, you really should do something about it.

NUMBER 8! - Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

I know, it's not technically a multiplayer game. But it's too easy to play this drunk with friends. Competing for bigger kill counts, only to try your best to escape the police while intoxicated. Probably the only game on the list where you can actually get drunk in the game as well as out of it. GTA:SA is brilliant for playing with friends since you can just make your own game out of it. How many hookers can you kill before getting arrested, how long can you outrun 5 stars.

NUMBER 7! - Worms

If the Iraq war was fought by worms, you know as much as I do that a hell of a lot more people would be in support of it. I swear, if an America soldier killed someone with an exploding sheep, I would probably laugh my freaking head off before realizing it was a British soldier killed by friendly fire. But I guess that's just another thing we can only dream of. Instead, enjoy 4 teams of 4 cute foreign worms blowing the shit out of each other with sheep, holy hand grenades, grandma and of course the favourite concrete donkey. Why is this perfect for drunk people? Because it's one of the most ridiculous games ever made, and yet very competitive and in some cases kinda hard.

NUMBER 6! - WarioWare

I've never really understood how to play this game. I completed the first few levels and a boss without actually knowing what I was doing in the minigames. And yet for some reason, when played with intoxicated friends, it can't get better. The vast amount of things to do in the game accompanied with the stupid motions you have to do make it a party game for the ages. Hell, if the amount of fun you can have in this game exceeds your alcohol level, it must be doing something right.

NUMBER 5! - Gears Of War

Easily the most violent on the list, it's fitting to the nature of a common drunk. Aggressive, anti-social, deadly with a sniper rifle... wait what? Drunk Gears multiplayer is one of the most frustrating things to play, simply because it feels so random. Shotgun blasts that will occasionally kill other people, but always seem to kill you first shot. Grenade tags and chainsaw melees that you can never seem to dodge. Beating someone down to their hands and knees before raping them like a sick twisted furfag and giving them and stomp on the head. Yes, Gears is the most frustrating multiplayer game on the list. But I'll be damned if I don't get pleasure from each of the items I just named (Except the rape thing... <_<)

NUMBER 4! - Guitar Hero 2

Probably one of the best AND one of the worst games to play drunk, Guitar Hero 2 will really test your alcohol limit. You wanna find out how much booze you can handle? You go play Guitar Hero 2. Yes, this game is about timing, speed and control, and when you drink these things go out the window. So my advice for playing this game drunk? Make sure to laugh at your friends before they get a chance to do so at you.

NUMBER 3! - Wii Sports

Motion control and drinking should not go together. Infact, anyone who has had a good amount of beers should stay the hell away from the Wii. But you won't, so do it like a man and get some friends over too. I highly suggest you play Bowling and Boxing, the easier games on the disc, since you probably won't even hit the ball on the other 3. There will be gutter balls, bogeys, outs and strikes. Get used to them while you can before pwning your friends while barely standing on your own 2 feet.

NUMBER 2! - Halo 2

The art of insulting has been perfected thanks to this game. So it should be no surprise this is a favourite for alcohol-fueled buddies. Laughing at your friends stumbling over their own feet is one thing, but owning them and then sticking your e-penis on their head is another. I think I speak for everyone when I say I'd choose the latter. I think Halo 2 is so popular, I'd be surprised if a huge number of those hadn't tried playing it drunk to be honest.

NUMBER 1 - Super Smash Bros. Melee

What's better than beating up your friends in a video game? Beating up your friends in a video game with Jigglypuff. As far as fighting games are concerned, SSMB plays out way differently, much to the advantage of the common drunk. Besides which, even though it has no blood, no major violence, and lots of obvious and familiar cartoons from Nintendo (Aside from the few which aren't by them of course), it's one of THE best beat 'em ups ever. It only gets better by giving alcohol-fueled people a controller and letting them kick their friends off the level.


OK, now I have to go on a beer run. Making this list made me thirsty. Enjoy your drunk gaming experience if you already don't.

Update: played through Hyper Dimension Neptunia Rebirth, reminded why I don't like the series, and requested a refund on it and its sequel. Not sure if they'll refund the sequel, but if they honor at least the first, I'll use that money to get Undertale.
