I've met a ton of people who play their games while piss drunk or high as a kite. For some of them, not being sober is a requirement. But I have met people who can barely tell where they are let alone what button they're supposed to press when they're under the influence of something.

 

So:

  1. Do you play games under the influence of something? If not, would you consider it? If yes, can you play games and enjoy them while sober?
  2. Can you play games legitimately while under the influence of something? By that, I mean, can you actually play the game with the same skill level as when sober or at least not suck at it?
  3. What kind of games or in what setting do you or would you play while under the influence of something?

Personally:

I don't drink too much, like 5 times a year and drugs/smoking are a no-no for me, but I act basically the same when drunk as I do when sleep-deprived. I haven't played games while drunk afaik, but whenever I didn't have enough sleep, I completely lose focus in games and have no clue wtf I'm doing. I usually turn it off. I don't see how people do it, I guess they're different "drunks" than I am. I wouldn't consider doing it unless I'm with friends.

I was really stoned when I did that mission in V where Jimmy spikes Michael's drink and he starts flying through the city.

...that was part of the game, right?

I've played drunk and high with friends, I play pretty terribly but it's so much fun, call of duty and objective based game modes with all your mates in the living room with a few tv's set up is awesome.

The last time I did that I was playing Driver on PSP, I'd just crash into everything and laugh.

I'm sure playing a game drunk with friends is fun as f*ck. Haven't tried it yet. But I wouldn't do it on a first playthrough of a new game. I want to remember the initial experience haha.

yes.

I routinely game while high.

 

not only does it make some games more enjoyable, but I'm actually better at certain games when I'm lit and feeling in the zone.

I wouldn't get drunk and game. I'm sure alcohol would just make everything worse, though pot works wonders.

I knew a guy in high school who swore that getting high made him do better in his ACT than he would have.

 

He still did pretty sh*tty though lol

I personally don't notice any difference when playing a game drunk or not, but that could just be my drunk perception.

 

I've never recorded myself playing drunk, so who knows?

I play in methane cloud. It does not make me a better gamer, but it makes my friends worse.

I have played games while drunk before but it's not something I do often. Mostly because I only go out to get drunk and then when I get home I go straight to bed.

 

Last time was a few years ago. I came back from the pub fairly drunk and sat for an hour playing COD 4 on veteran mode. I found I was a fair bit worse at the game than usual, but I did better than I was expecting.

The only time I remember playing a game piss drunk was the day EFLC released and after coming home from a friend's 21st I was in the mood to play TBOGT while completely smashed. I think I done better compared to when I'm sober lol.

The better question is: Can you play games when you are not under the influence of something?

I could play while not under the Influence, I choose not to though. I found that it makes my games way more interesting. I've been doing it since PS2 came out. Grand Turismo 3 was so cool that first time.

 

Put it this way, I have been playing BF4 since release on next gen. Everynight just gets better. Explosion here, bullet flies by my head, What was that? What, I just jumped out of a jet and on my way to the ground I shoot someone thats like 100 feet below me that didn't even see me coming. Thats cool as hell........under the influence. Not sober, and No, I never play on alcohol. Never cared for it much.

 

So to all that doesn't......don't knock it till you try it. :blink:

I completely agree with this. Hotline Miami is my game of choice after smoking. Just the other week I was having trouble completing a certain chapter, and sure enough after getting high I showed those bitches what's what.  It felt good.

 

On some occasions, too, being high can make a game feel like you're playing it again for the first time. This helps me getting exciting about playing online matches in FIFA.

I've never tried it. Knowing me, if I tried playing a game while high, I'd likely forget that I was even playing, or else I'd think the gameplay was a cutscene.

 

Then again, it would depend on how much I smoked.

I had sex while I played BlackOps 2 one time, it was hilarious. It was Demolition, and I actually got positive stats!
 
I play COD all the time when I'm drunk, usually when I get home from a night out. Now and then I drink beer and play Forza with my friends, we use to get pretty drunk after a while, haha. 
My boyfriend played Skyrim while he was drunk a couple of months ago, when he woke up the next morning he had 200 cabbage in his inventory, and he didnt remember anything

I once played BF3 right after new year's eve (drunk as f*ck) with my feet just to see what would happen. It took a while but I was able to do a positive score on a TDM.

- NO

- uhh..what? i guess, no.
 
What kind of games or in what setting do you or would you play while under the influence of something?
 
- under the influence of something? umm.... gta. also, shooters ex: max payne. It will be a test between gaming under the influence and max's ability making it a challenging experience.
