The Great Video Game Drinking Game

Games are fun. So is drinking, especially when sharing the experience with fellow gaming alcoholics. That is why I created an in-depth drinking game that can be applied to any and all games. This drinking game even works while watching other people stream their games over the internet with others. So, let’s get started!

Power of friendship speech? Drink your friend’s drink

Obvious on-disc DLC? Order your next drinks online

Character wakes up with amnesia? Chug down your drink until you black out.

Character loses powers after intro? Drink until you can’t walk or hold the controller.

Long cutscenes? Keep drinking until the cutscenes end.

Slow-motion effects? Very slowly sip your drink.

Tutorial that overexplains the most basic things? Read the ingredients from the can/bottle’s label for the duration of it.

Backtracking? Time to walk back to the nearest store for more drinks. Keep drinking on your way there.

Underwater level. Pour contents of bottle/can over your head.

Lockpicking minigame. Try opening a corked bottle without any tools.

DRM getting in the way of your game? Try drinking from an unopened can/bottle.

Moral choice! Time to decide on what to drink!

Driving segment. Give the controller to a friend. Drunk driving is not good. Take a drink every time your friend loses.

Drink each time you use a potion or consumable item of any kind.

Critical hit? Take a deep gulp.

Each time you hear Nolan North or Steve Blum as a different character, drink.

Whenever the game locks you out of the campaign in order to force you to take on sidequests or roam, keep drinking until you forget why you’re not progressing anymore.

Achievement or trophy unlocked? Reward yourself with a drink.

Found a new piece of equipment? Open up a new drink.

Teammate dead or passed out? Feed your friend drinks until he passes out.

Forgot where you’re supposed to be going? Keep drinking until you remember.

Timed mission. You have to finish your drink as well as finish the mission within the time limit. If you fail and the mission restarts, open up a new drink. attempt both again.

Flashbacks? Start going through empty cans and bottles. If there’s anything left in them to drink, finish them up.

Picking up a sidequest? Pick up an extra drink next to your current one.

Chains? Combos? Take a shot for each successive hit/chain.

Sequel hook. You know that feeling where you want another drink? Good, because you’re going to keep holding on to that for a while. No drinks for you.
