I choose death over a cold sober non video game world.

Easy, I couldn't care less about alcohol.

I'll keep my games, thanks.

I like to drink a beer every now and then, but video games are life for me. I think I would have killed myself long ago if it weren't for video games.

Easy choice, I don't drink alcohol, ever.

I'd stick with games. At most I have a glass of some sort of whiskey once or twice a month, so it wouldn't be a big loss.

I've never drink any alcohol, and have no interest in doing so. Easy choice, video games!

This is legit one of the hardest questions I've ever seen. I figure I could drown my sorrows of a hellish video game-less world in alcohol, but not the other way around, so I voted booze.

Drinking a beer and playing a video game in the evening is pretty great. The right answer is to give up the alcohol though, because you could always switch to pot.

I’m kidding!...in most states.

I imagine that when I'm 75 years old I'd rather sit there and drink than sit there and play video games. Games aren't that big of a deal, just go outside more, it's pretty cool.

Dude. Games. Definitely games.

Games for sure.

Alcohol is great in many ways, no doubt. I very much enjoy my wine that being said, I can live without it. Not being able to play any games, anytime, ever at all, would be hard when they're much a part of who I am!

Got old enough a few years ago that I couldn't do hangovers anymore. Video games all the way.

i was going to say that i can't believe video games are winning by so much, but then again this is a video games forum.

i would personally choose alcohol. i don't play a lot of video games these days, i don't have many friends that do either. i go out and grab a drink once or twice a week, it's a good excuse to hang out with friends, and some of the best memories of my life have involved alcohol whereas none have involved video games. alcohol is the definite choice for me.

Nothing better than sitting down at the PC after work, loading up a game and opening a cold beer. This is a hard question...

They've both gotten me through a lot of hard times, and continue to do so. I'd have to go with alcohol, though. It allows me to be more social.

As a non-drinker, this is probably the easiest poll I've ever answered on the website.

Not judging but I'm curious for anyone that does vote alcohol - why? Socialising, relaxing and something to take your mind off anything can all be achieved through video games with none of the downsides of alcohol.

Both are awesome, and both are amazing to come back to after putting them away for awhile. But I've been playing games for twenty years, drinking for about nine, if I need to get a buzz I'll just throw some glue and sharpies in a paper bag and have a good time.

I enjoy quite a few different types of alcohol, but I drink very infrequently. Even if I did drink more, I'd still pick games. Basically anything I do that could involve alcohol works fine without it; compared to losing an entire creative medium, and possibly my favourite one at that, not having drinks seems like a minor issue.

I've done enough drinking to last a lifetime and quit drinking about 4 years ago. I still have a lifetime of video games to play.

No alcohol is easy. I have been praticaly completely dry for years now. I like getting a bit buzzed but I have always had a weak stomach so my hangovers tend to be very much like a deterrent. I guess I had my fill of toilet hugging over the years.

There are other drugs we can enjoy besides booze.

Where's the enjoyment in playing video games if you can't be slamming back them crushmosas at the same time?

I'd go with alcohol. First, my husband doesn't play video games, but he does drink, so we can enjoy that together. Also, games can be an isolating hobby whereas drinking generally gets me out of the house and together with friends. And, as mentioned above, games are just *way* more enjoyable with a nice cold drink or two.

I can see an earlier version of myself picking one or the other depending on my age. Before I was 16 it would have been games. My 16 to 30 year old self would have picked alcohol for sure. Not sure what by 30-40 year old self would have said - I guess it could have gone either way. However, I am over 40 now and my current pick would be games - alcohol has totally lost is luster. However, don't hold me to this pick - my 50 year old self might turn out to be a total booze hound!

I have like a beer a week, and that's when you average multiple weeks. Non-alcoholic beer exists too, if you want the flavour.

Video games, hands down.

Now, if this was #WEED3 vs Video Games, then we'd have a problem.

Video games, no question. I'm a 30 year old man who might drink a Guinness or some whiskey now and then, but I would have no trouble never having a drop of alcohol ever again.

If they take away booze then I will have to take up new drugs. I don't really fancy weed. Legalise LSD or heroin please.

Booze for sure. I can get somewhere in life with booze. Video games are just an enjoyable impediment from all things I could achieve.

It’s not even noon yet and I could really go for a drink now. You can have a Screwdriver for brunch, right?

Booze. Social life, wide variety of flavor profiles, etc. I really appreciate good video games, but I don't game nearly enough for this to be much of a contest (although that wasn't always the case).

Video games. Easy choice since for me, I've had 3 drinks in the past 5 years.

Although I may be turning on it... Having rum and eggnog this Christmas Eve may have been the first time I've actually enjoyed alcohol.

I rarely touch alcohol nowadays. It's no fun with young children around.
