What are you favorite drink and video game pairings?
For a nice Winter/late Fall night I go with a double imperial stout and Witcher 3. The nice, rich sound track and atmosphere goes well with a full bodied beer.
Summer would have to be a wheat ale and a puzzler, or wine and a puzzle game (seems more sophisticated).
Old school platforming with Mario Bros seems to go well with a mixed drink, something in the realm of a Mai Tai due to tropical sounding music and rich colors.
Anyone play Mario Kart 64 while drinking? I haven’t researched any rules, but I heard from some ex-coworkers (who happened to be new college graduates, so you know their drinking games are spot on) that house rules require no drinking and driving. You must stop your kart while taking a swig. Seems responsible.
I could see a FPS paired with a redbull and vodka. Something high energy but also inebriating.
Pont’n’clicks + cup of Earl Grey, because you feel 100 years old
oldschool RPGs + barrel of supersweetmilky coffee (self explained)
Dark Souls or Thief or MGS + lemon balm or chamomile (they lower stress levels)
Fallout New Vegas - Sierra Nevada (moderate)
Elder Scrolls Oblivion - Becks Dark Lager (Often warm, moderate)
STALKER Lost Alpha - Sobieski Rye Vodka (quite heavy, though i was used to it)
Grand Theft Auto Vice City - I’d get fucked up on box wine and just drive cars as fast as i could down that main strip at the beginning
ultimate doom other old ID era FPS games - played hungover a few times. lol
I dont drink often and if i do its usually because i’m really not alright inside. if i play a game while drinking its usually an atmospheric FPS or first person dungeon crawler
