    I don't drink. I don't even, in game play.
    I have an alcohol problem so being forced to consume it really bothers me. Why force people to participate in something they wish not to?

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    @adtc5812 First of all, I am sorry to hear you have an alcohol problem.

    If you find content in the game causing you to feel so unpleasant, may I suggest you stop playing?

    Before the game is launched, unless I remembered wrongly, there already were teasers showing that drinking would be a feature in the game.

    Back in ACIV, hunting marine creatures was a feature and it was attacked by animal lovers. I love animals, but since killing all marine creatures was tied to an achievement (I believe), I had to kill them. The thought that I was "forced" to do so never crossed my mind.

    In Fable, to get all Demon Doors, the protagonist must have a "relationship" with NPCs, and I generally avoid getting into a relationship with NPCs in games (same in Valhalla). Still, I never thought that the game was forcing me to do something I avoid in real life.

    As much as I sound like a jerk, I need to be frank: games really can't cater to all kinds of people in this world. There are people having phobias of all kinds of stuff, or find any kinds of actions repulsive, but if all that has to be taken into consideration, there will be too many restrictions and nearly no games can be designed.

    Back to your case, I sincerely hope you can find a solution to your problem.

    @ImaginaryRuins Ubisoft constantly brags how their games are for everyone, well are they or aren't they?

    @adtc5812 You don't have to do the drinking games. There may be one or 2 that you are forced to do, but they are rare. I absolutely loathe the mechanic, so I avoided them as much as possible; even to the point of googling where that one order member is as I would have RQ trying to win a drinking contest.

    I mean yeah, if it causes you a problem it sucks, but Vikings did drink, and in this game you are also forced to do drugs, more so than drink actually. *shrug* IN fact, I read somewhere that people constantly drank ale, beer, mead etc back in the day because it was safer than the water they had access to in many situations.

    @imaginaryruins i have no problem with them putting it in the game. Just add an option to not do it. Especially something like drug use (the circles) or drinking, gambling ect, can be avoided. However adding it to necessitate moving the game forward is what I'm addressing. For those who don't have issues with the soul sucking life crushing demons called addiction, enjoy playing as you will, just make it so those of us who wish to not open that door again can too.

    @adtc5812 can you refer us to where we have to drink? Like I said the drug use seems considerably more forced to me with those adrenaline shrooms.

    @adtc5812 Ah okay. That's an optional quest though. I know it sucks big time if you want to romance her. Can you just afk until it's over, or close your eyes and randomly click? That's what I do with TV. IK it sounds childish, but it does the trick haha.

    @torfinr Haha. True! I've never got why game/r/s are all uppity about stuff like nudity or substance use, when you can massacre everything around. Okay Valhalla won't let you kill civilians but still xD
