    I played "Gradius 5" while drunk out of my head. i got a new high score and completed the game... something i could never do while sober.
    But at any other games i really suck while drunk

      Myself and some friends came up a theory a while ago that if you are already very familiar with a game you can actually get better with some alcohol. We figured you just play on instinct rather than taking time to think about what you are doing. Particularly in FPS games, a split second delay can be your end. But you have to be good [when sober] first and know the game inside and out...thus why I could never do ASw drunk. Back when I played CS regularly I swear there were times I was unstoppable with a couple beers in me. Or I just want to remember it that way.....

        If you are squiffy it can help you relax into it, and play on instinct more. If you are wasted you will start to suck. A few vodka and red bulls is a good one ^_^

          I love this thread.
          I don't generally play drunk, anything over one drink and i'll just feel i'm putting a burden on the other players, especially with cooperative games like Alienswarm. Comparatively gametypes like Deathmatch work best for me for the very valid reasons Ran-Bot stated, but i still do a bit better when sober. Strategic things like Onslaught are a big no-no as the other team will have won before i realise i'm pushing through to the wrong node. It's gotta be simple if you want a drunk man to be any good at it.

          One thing though, when sober and trying to get the best out of myself, an intensive game can become mentally exhaustive for me, as i have to be on the edge all the time, a few drinks will make it much more relaxed.

            I've found that with a couple of beers I become much better at playing Winter Assault because they make me more impulsive, and that particular RTS seems to depend on aggression more than any other I've played.

                Alcohol is not a drug, it's a drink.
