First Friday Drinking Game


It's the first Friday of the month, and you know what that means: another round of First Friday Drinking Game! Today we'll be hooking up the multiple controllers to bum rush the ever-popular Fighter genre. We've all seen it--those crazy, nonsensical, and downright cheap elements of Fighters that make us want to resort to beating each other in real life instead. Take the edge off by following these simple rules, and get ready for a night you may or may not remember:

1 drink for every self-ringout; add one more for every repeat offense
1 drink for each fighter out for revenge
1 drink for every juiced-looking male fighter and overly-cutesy female fighter with no opposite sex counterpart (try not to stay on the fighter screen too long for this one)
1 drink less for every fighter who breaks these stereotypes
1 drink for every move that refuses to execute (Warning: forceful button-mashing doesn't help)
1 drink for each ridiculous, cutesy/hypermasculine post-battle catch phrase
1 drink more if she struts her/he flexes his stuff while saying said catch phrase
2 drinks for every "kama sutra" style attack (play Rumble Roses at your own risk)
1 drink every time a fighter produces a weapon from some dubious point of origin
2 drinks each time breasts defy the laws of physics
1 drink more if said breasts go in opposite directions
1 drink more if you are still sober enough to consider that, in a sport like fighting, a little support for the girls might be a good idea
2 drinks every time button-mashing wins over strategy
1 drink for every phallic weapon (hello, pole!)
2 drinks for every unnecessary panty shot

And finally:
Finish your drink when a (more often than not female) fighter apologizes for fighting

Warning: Excessive drinking during gameplay may increase chances of self-ringout and thus the perpetuation of and endless cycle of public drunkenness, very bad fighting tactics, and the realization that you are not, in fact, a drunken master. Play with caution!

Think I forgot something? Suggest a rule in the comments section!
