How Realistic Is Video Game Drunkenness?

Lisa Foiles — I'm just going to come right out and say it: I love drunk video game characters.

The slurred speech, the blurred vision, the ragdoll physics as they fall backwards down a flight of stairs which somehow never results in paralyzing spinal fractures – I'd much rather nurse a digital person back to sobriety than my college-aged friends.

But however comical it is to watch an intoxicated John Marston careen into strangers, or a brave Commander Shepard throw back one too many batarian ales, how true to life are their drunken actions?

The story is too old to be commented.
