Do these go well together? Does it make either better?

We've found that getting buzzed and playing House of the Dead for a few hours to be quite a fun staying-in Date Night.

I like to crack a beer while playing various games. Just keep in mind it'll affect how you play. It may be for the better or it may be for the worse, it depends on the circumstances.

It might be useful to put inebriated bar patrons in front of the video screen and let them drive home somewhat safely. Hope they are firmly seat belted to the stool when they inevitably hit some digital tree.
Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

Sure, that's a good way to clean your cartridges when they get dirty. Sometimes blowing on the connectors just isn't enough to get Blaster Master running properly again.

I'm pretty sure that alcohol affects video games like we already know it affects driving and karaoke. You will only think you are performing better and that may not be enough to stop you from doing something dumb.
