Call of Duty isnt going well
If I'm not doing multiplayer with friends I usually play something without story that's re-playable: Enter the Gungeon, Binding of Issac, Hotline Miami, Luftrausers. Or a platformer like Mario or Every body loves Rayman. I usually want to listen to music or podcasts when drunk and gaming so Rogue-lites work well. Rocket League is about the only online multiplayer I fuck with alone drunk.
Usually a slow-paced strategy game, such as Endless Space 2, Jurassic World Evolution, Hearts of Iron 4, and similar. The drink makes me "sink into" the game in a fine way, it's like my brain finds a special wavelength to tune in to.
Sometimes I play old-school action games like Earth Defense Force, Just Cause, and Dead Rising.
One genre I definitely avoid is racing/driving games. I've tried playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 while slightly drunk and always end up crashing somehow. Also, nothing with a deep storyline, I've actually managed to fall asleep whilst playing those games.
I use to have this sweet spot where I'd actually play online shooters better after about 2 or 2 beers. Raised my senses somehow lol. Anymore than that though and things went south quickly. I imagine playing something like Gone Home or Edith Finch whilst having a steady whisky or 2 would be good.
Driving games. But seriously, I usually just play whatever I've been playing. I guess sometimes I might play some online FPS game, but that's rare. When I use to smoke weed I would only play certain types of games though. Usually games that required very little thinking lol. I would get turned around in seconds even in the simplest games. I remember always enjoying Diablo 3.
A lot of games recquire too much attention so tipsy/drunk just doesn’t work. But I like a beer/whisky along with Yakuza/Judgement. And while my performance is lacking after a while it is initially pretty good, I am a lot more relaxed in CoD or R6 while having a drink and I become a lot more communicative.
I like to mix myself a quick cocktail with any game I'm playing, but I can't drink to drunkenness without getting super sick and headachey these days. More to the spirit of the question would probly be Smash Bros. Melee, some great drunken college brawls at the time! My current jam is Stardew Valley - super chill when you get into a groove - but recently, sipping along to Outer Wilds and fittingly? depressingly? Disco Elysium were a nice experience.
I like to pair my drink with the game. Lately it's been gin on the rocks for Yakuza and Judgment (I hate whiskey, love gin), an IPA with Stardew Valley, and some sort of rum concoction with my 2064 Read Only Memories play through.
I agree a couple of beer can be fun with online games too.
