Default Video Game Characters are Cheap Dates

Drinking in games can be a humorous past time, get a few giggles in before taking on a horde of bad guys under very one sided conditions (no force of evil can match the mighty Quick Save/Load). But ever stopped to wonder how realistic this drunkard behavior, slurred speech and floor collapsing humor can be? Nah, me neither.

You can read the rest of our post and discuss here.

hmm, it took me a lot of time to get sober in The Witcher! I always had to find a spot to meditate/sleep to get over the drunken walking and blurry vision!!

I have drank myself to unconsciousness in Mass Effect 2 though, hah!
