I was just a friends place and he disclosed some information to me: he can only play video games while he is high.  
 
This got me thinking about this topic: have you ever played a game while drunk/high before? I have played No More Heroes drunk, and let me tell you, that game is awesome drunk. 
 
I always play games while I'm sober though - I find I'm really bad at games when I'm high I have only played NMH while drunk so I don't know about other games. 
 
What do you guys think?  
 
If you're against getting drunk/high/intoxicated, please don't post comments like "I am against drugs/alcohol" because this topic is about if you've ever actually played games while intoxicated, not your opinions about getting intoxicated. If that makes any sense. I just don't want a bunch of Debbie-Downers and preachers in this thread. 
 
EDIT: Oh yeah, RPGs are really fun while high.

I hear Braid is a good game if you drink beer and get drunk or smoke weed and get high

No, but I came close when I played FF12 after overdosing on cough drops. My mind blended it with Camp Lazlo, somehow.

Yeah, I actually find it kinda of weird. Like, he can't even pick up a controller without smoking a joint first. It doesn't really make any sense to me...

Cool... it's... cool, YEAH!. Fuckin' A.
 
College Hoops 2K8, gotta play sober. Wii Sports Resort... whatever.

Ive tried (lol tried) to play CoD:4, Empire: Total War, Halo 3, mario kart 64, golden eye, and saints row.
 
I fucking suck when im drunk.

#14 Posted by RsistncE (4496 posts) -

Playing while even only buzzed usually nets lots of WTFs from me. I don't do it.

#15 Edited by Sektion9 (28 posts) -

I get tipsy when I play games in the evening / late at night. That is when I don't have exams or other obligations. Every game is better with 3 or 4 beers or glasses of wine or shots of Jägermeister. Red Faction Guerilla multiplayer and Fallout 3 are games that become a hell of a lot of fun when under the influence.


p.s. I use to smoke the buddha. When I did my favourite game was Mass Effect. Use to play it with Coast to Coast AM on the radio in the background. What a trip.

 The last game I played while drunk was Just Cause on Xbox, I was way too drunk that night though and was barely able to see the TV let alone play the game. I've never played games high, only been high once and all it did was make me paranoid and think of really bad things about myself.

#17 Posted by HatKing (5765 posts) -

Never have I played games while drunk...which is weird because I drink a lot and I play games a lot.  Only two times come to mind that were close, the night Fallout 3 came out(midnight release for me) I decided I wanted to drink a bunch of vodka(I probably started drinking around 6), I eventually passed out and woke up from my alarm just before midnight.  I was sober when I got the game but not feeling very well(for good reason), I started playing the game got to the first town opened a cabinet found a bottle of vodka and almost puked in real life.  The other time was actually just like three nights ago when my roommates and myself got good and drunk, one of my roommates who doesn't really ever play video games had the urge to play so I set up NHL 2K7 for him(he is a big hockey fan) and watched him play a couple games.  I have never actually played drunk as far as I can remember though.

Guitar Hero drunk is a helluva good time on expert :P

#19 Posted by calidan777 (853 posts) -

I play CoD4 multiplayer drunk pretty often, I usually suck pretty bad when too

#20 Posted by ThomasP (1655 posts) -

There are some good drinking games like Rock Band / Guitar Hero, the Wii Sports series, Sing Star, You Don't Know Jack. As far as playing games high on marijuana... whatever floats your boat. Millions of gamers do it all the time.

UNO + drunk == win! :)
#22 Edited by SuperfluousMoniker (2906 posts) -

Playing arcade games and shmups drunk is fun. Also anything with local multiplayer is obviously good, Street Fighter, Guitar Hero, racing games.

#23 Posted by Druminator (1676 posts) -

Games are way better stoned (like most things) but they're harder when I'm drunk, especially when I'm seeing double.

#24 Posted by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -

Can't really pinpoint too many exact games, but if I get home drunk at night and I'm not tired, I'll play whatever game I'm currently into. I can pretty confidently say that playing Street Fighter IV drunk is not really beneficial. And like ThomasP said, Guitar Hero and Rock Band are awesome party games.

#25 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -

10 beers is the only way to truly appreciate Persona.

#26 Posted by Linkyshinks (9881 posts) -

Often, but not any old game. Off the top of my head games like Rez and Cosmic Smash are great games to play. NMH drunk is pretty fun, the fun you get from the basic combat is second to none when drunk, you just cannot help but get into the mood of things by shouting whatever Travis is shouting.

its an excuse he could if he wanted to but the addiction makes him think he needs it too do the things he does while high.
#28 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

yes, it is fun. i remember playing mass effect when my friend first gave it to me. i didn't get to far, i got to the citadel. i found it to be confusing then when my friend came over and got high i found what i was looking for. i found it to be really funny that, that happened. sadly, my hard drive broke a while ago. i never touched that game. i play buzzed a lot of times. i only get buzzed i don't like getting drunk. so far jack daniels with pepsi and jagerbomb.

#29 Posted by Th3_James (2576 posts) -

i have played games drunk, high, on psilocybin, and  lsd On separate ocassions....but they do not impair my skills that severally...for most games I dont really do drugs anymore, but when i did it was just recreational... still though LSD by far the best, i didn't expect to trip for a whole day
 
fear 2 was a blast while on hallucinogenics, me and my friends were all so immersed in the game, we didn't plan on playing for several hours. but it just happened, we got through more than half of the game.. rock band was impossible for us to play though, the colors take over
 
drunk i usually get pretty sleepy, and end up not wanting to play for a long period of time, but my skills aren't affected

#30 Edited by Khann (2761 posts) -

Yeah I pretty much only play games high. Playing racing sims I get really focused and analyse the way I'm driving a lot more, resulting in faster lap times. 
 
I also really enjoy playing JRPGs this way. Eases the pain of grinding, makes the story more intense and there are plenty of opportunities to smoke another bong or roll up a cigarette.
 
Playing games while "intoxicated" is the only way for me. That said, I can be really good, or really bad at FPS' when high. Sometimes I can get that really focused state and I'm really good, and other times I couldn't get a kill if my life depended on it. I guess it depends on what weed I'm smoking and the type of stone I have. And how stoned I am.

In the early days of Xbox Live, it seemed that half the people playing Rainbow 6: Raven Shield and MechAssault were drunk, myself included.  I remember lots of online matches with people who were obviously drunk or getting drunk.  We sucked, but it didn't matter because we were all having a good time.  Maybe nostalgia is clouding my memories, but I think there were fewer angry gamers running around then.  Most of us would pop a few brews and just play for a hours straight on.

#32 Posted by eyehook (121 posts) -
@PenguinDust:  
You are totally right.  I forgot about that.
#33 Posted by KillaMaStA (859 posts) -

I have. It makes games more fun just as it does everything else
 
I beat a level that I couldnt beat for months before at 3am and totally drunk as well. It was awesome!

#34 Posted by Cube (4366 posts) -

I tried to play Virtua Tennis drunk.
 
I remember putting my face on the 360 controller, in the middle, saying, "what do you want me to do?"
 
I don't know either.

I can't play GTA4 without being high but i don't know why

#37 Posted by Equal_Opportunity_Destroyer497 (558 posts) -

The weed and videogames combo works very well for me, but I can't do shit in a game if I'm drunk.

#38 Posted by fancifulunicorn (58 posts) -

I can remember one occasion that might have involved Street Fighter 2 and definitely involved Megaman X.  I used to play through MMX about every other day before I went to bed but I couldn't get past that damn spider boss while intoxicated.

#41 Posted by Alexander (1721 posts) -

I find Rez and Uno are good ones. I find myself better at driving games after a few drinks.

#42 Posted by jangofett88 (324 posts) -

#45 Edited by eroticfishcake (7782 posts) -

I played GT4 when I was a bit pissed once. I came first so I don't think I was pissed enough. It was an interesting experience though.

I can already tell that The Beatles: Rock Band will be the ultimate game to play to while under the influence. The backgrounds alone should do you in.

i know a guy who plays BF2 while on acid

#49 Edited by MikkaQ (10261 posts) -

Yeeeeaaah I love playing certain games high, they're mad amounts of fun, but only if it's not too intense, or actiony. I like calmer games, mostly JRPGs while high. That's absolutely the best genre, because all the cheesy japanese melodrama actually starts to feel well written and shit, and you get really into the story of the game. The lame ass grinding gets more fun (I think I can eternally grind if I'm high and have TV on), the battles become wicked, just about everything about them becomes awesome, especially stylised cell shaded ones like Eternal Sonata or something. My new fav is Tales of Vesperia. 
 
 
Aaaand Rock Band is THE greatest drunk game ever. The only other game I'Ve been drunk playing was Gears 2, which I didn't even like too much, but they did have those giant monsters attack your drilling trucks, and I was callling them "Robot-Rancors" and "Rob-ancors" and stuff.
