Frat Party Games: Beer Pong

By Drew Sandholm

Story Created: Jul 8, 2008

When it comes to Nintendo Wii, you can find shooting games, sports games, but drinking games?

As it turns out, a new game coming out later this month for the popular gaming system is called "Frat Party Games: Beer Pong". Using a "Wii-mote," the game simulates the real drinking game, but it's been approved for kids as young as 13-years-old.

The game has some people concerned and Carrie Haugan one of them. A mother of two from Brandon, she doesn't like the idea of a "beer pong" video game especially since it's rated suitable for ages 13 and up. She said, "We don't need to teach kids to drink, you know, get ready for drinking games. They'll start drinking earlier maybe."

The game apparently simulates beer pong. Also called beirut, beer pong is a popular drinking game played by college students and at various bars. To play, cups filled with beer are put on opposite sides of a table and each team tries to throw a pingpong ball into a cup. Once the ball lands in that cup the the opposite team has to chug the cup of beer.

The Entertainment Software Rating Board rates video games, like "Frat Party Games: Beer Pong." They gave it a "T" rating, which means teens can purchase and play the game. The board saw no ties to promoting alcohol within the game. Instead, they say players are just tossing balls in a cup. At the same time, game creator JV Games says their version doesn't promote drinking, but they're going to change the name to "Pong Toss."

Still, parents like Carrie Haugan don't buy it. She said, "Well, they know it's a drinking game. It'll encourage drinking."

The game is set to be released at end-month. It will be sold in stores across the country.

Wow, is that encouraging young kids to start drinking when they are older or what? Why do they complain so much about shooting games etc, when they are making games like this?

Man, Wii Sports is a sufficient enough drinking game.
So is darts on Warioware.
So is watching Silence of the Lambs and taking a shot everytime you hear the words "Lecter" or "Starling".
Way more fun.
