Despite what the Critic said in his review, best basketball game EVER! 8-)

I like the idea of a cocktail glass or a 6 pack.

Two games right off the top of my head are Super High Impact and General Chaos on the Genesis!

I can honestly say that I definitely got more than my money's worth from that game. I paid $1 for a used copy of it at Software Etc in 2000. I've since played thousands of games on it. Without a doubt the best bang for the buck in any game I've ever purchased.

What should be the text that accompanies the icon? "Best while drinking"?

Also, I'm not sure if I game like Rez really fits.
I mean, it's definitely psychedelic, but couldn't you get sick drinking while playing something like that?

Maybe it's just me but, "best drinking games" seems synonymous with "best games to gamble on". All the games mentioned thus far also strike me as games that I like to place bets on.

I would add Hot Shots Golf or any golf game for that matter and Street Fighter II Turbo or any fighting game as well.

I'm pretty sure Rez fits into the other icon (420 friendly) you mentioned as a possibility.

I was actually saying that for the play while high icon you proposed :lol:

For drinking I would strongly recommend rock band

Well my artist Mark provided me with a really nice "play while drinking" icon so I'm opening up the floor to [more] suggestions!

I went ahead and added the new icon under the "Special Icon" section.

I applied it to a smattering of games just to get started. A lot of those reviews referenced alcohol so I figured what the heck.

I'm open to suggestions on what reviews should get this, and don't be shy about recommending any icons that deserve to be associated with any review.
