8 Games That Improve When You're Drinking

Some things just go better with a drink or two, like these eight games.

Here's what my friends do:

Smash Bros:
Every time you lose a game, take a swig/shot.

F-Zero / Mario Kart:
Every time you lose a race, or fall off the course or get blue shell'd take a swig/shot

Borderlands:
If you're not getting shot at and you're not at least tipsy, take a swig/shot.

Mario Party:
Whenever you WIN a minigame or get a star, take a swig/shot.
Whenever someone screws you over and you want to get over the pain, drink whatever you need to. XD

...I miss doing that. We haven't had a part like that in quite some time. :(

I'm pretty sure the correct answer to "What games are improved with drinking?" is "All of them."

Now this is a list I can get behind. My friends and I usually play SSB (or Super Smashed Super Smash, as we call it), and sometimes Mario Kart when drunk. Another group of friends I play drunk Mario Party with. And I also play drunk League of Legends. Other than Beerio Kart, which is one beer per circuit plus one for Rainbow Road, and you can't drink and drive, we don't really use any drinking rules for them. We drink as we play/play as we drink. Also, funnily enough, my friends tell me that I get better at SSB when I'm drunk.

Cards Against Humanity

I didn't know people played this without drinking.

Why not do winner drinks to keep it balanced out?

The last game I played while drinking was... uh... What was it again? Oh yeah! Just Dance 2014! All me and my friend did was "just dance to Blurred Lines without realizing the irony of the situation" and the rest was more of a blur than the line of empty glasses the next morning... (Oh, what a birthday at his place...)

Other than that, watching someone drink-play through Do You Like Horny Bunnies? was so worth it in the end...

Eh, seems to me games are one of the few things that in general DON'T improve with drinking. Which is kind of a big reason why I appreciate them, without getting too deep into it.

Ummmmm....isn't every game better when you're drinking? Considering that any game can be made into a drinking game with just a modicum of imagination and thought, I'd say the answer is yes: every game is indeed better when you're drinking. :P
