    I need help choosing a console. I'm not a serious gamer, it will only ever be used for multiplayer when I have friends over and we're just mucking around and drinking. What console and which games would be best?

    the Wii would be ideal for a drunk - alot of movement with the hands and feet, and when you get mad with it you can lob the controller at the nearest wall for a satisfying smashing experiance :D

    Wii and Wii Sports. Especially Boxing and Bowling.

    Just make sure to:

    A) Drink Many Shots,
    and
    B) ALWAYS use the wrist strap. Seriously.

    Depends on how drunk you are.

    Atari Flashback 2 - or is that for when you're high?

    I suspect a Wii could be very entertaining, what with all those drunken limbs flailing about. Mind, it could be a little dangerous too, what with all those drunken limbs flailing about.

    Still, what are a few knocked-out teeth between friends? ;)

    Coming from the person that doesn't drink thats great that you respond!

    I'm usually playing my PS3 when drunk. A nice online game of Resistance or RB6 while drunk is great, plus killin teh Riggz is all that more fun while drunk :p

    I've played Paper Mario a few times while drunk, Wii sports was nil fun while drunk, and Mario Party was slightly amusing.

    Online games are fun while drunk, something that the Wii seriously lacks.

    So I've never seen (and laughed) at watching drunks play Wii Sports before?

    Are you talking only of current consoles? Or are you looking to get something through eBay?

    I would have to unfortunately say Wii if you are only talking about current consoles.

    I say unfortunately because I could see alot of bad coming from flailing drunk arms about. People getting hit, Wii-motes flying through the air, through windows or TV screens...Could be bad.

    Also be careful if you guys are drinking and playing any Wii sports title right in front of a coffee table or something. I haven't had any drinks knocked over yet but I did have a buddy send a large bowl of chips sailing across the room when playing Wii bowling...I was still finding chips behind the TV 3 months later.

    Wii would probably be the best because of all the movement. However, Geometry Wars on the 360 would be pretty interesting too, with all the trippy-ness and flashing colors. There's a Wii version coming later, too, and probably requires less motor control.

    But I've never been drunk (by choice, not lack of opportunity), so I really don't know what is fun while drunk. Meh.

    being a little intoxicated make games quite fun... no online on the wii makes it that much better because you have to be drinking and playing WITH people in the same house. Watching eachother playing the wii is the best part about it.

    "Get Smashed Bro":

    Play a smash bros: melee game with like 40 lives for each character, and drink (or take a shot :eek:) every time you get killed. Twice for suicides (optional).

    You'll wake up the next morning (afternoon) in front of your cube with a controller in your hand, guaranteed.

    Drunk.. and getting online? To play other drunks? That does not make sense to me (of course I'm currently sober).

    In a room with drunk pals-- Wii all the way.

    GameCube, and, I guess now, Wii - anything that can play SSMB wins instantly.

    As for the best to play to be the best when drunk, a mate of mine seems to get even better at Halo 2 after a few pints (doesn't seem to work so well on Gears, though :D)
