As everyone else says, the US is way too large a section of land to answer this question at all. You'd have to ask state by state, and even then the answer would vary county by county I bet. On average? I'd be willing to say we drink about as much as anyone else in the world.
I'd leave. Straight up. I enjoy all the crew, but Vinny is the only one (aside from Patrick or, in certain cases with very certain games, Brad) who brings any real sense of enjoyment to his job. Ryan and Jeff get on with their sort of sarcastic irony humor and Brad is sleepy Brad most times, while Vinny is the one cracking genuinely funny jokes and getting excited about stuff.
So yeah, I probably would seek video game coverage elsewhere.
Oh my god, thank you, I've been looking for a sort of definitive current mod list for a while now, and this seems to fit the bill. I'm gonna have to try this shit out later and have myself an adventure.
