Gaming and Food
Written by: Sarmad2332 - 12:09 Feb-13-2018

The creation of the sandwich, arguably one of the most customizable food of all time, was made with the idea to allow one hand remaining free. The free hand was then used to deal cards in a card game. At least that is the story behind the infamous dish. A food designed to allow snacking and eating without disrupting the game itself. 

SO WHY ISNT THERE ONE FOR VIDEO GAMES!?!?!?!? 

A vast majority of my gaming session happens between 11PM to 4AM. So I obviously get hungry. I keep with me either a bag of chips or some biscuits or a mug of milk. BUT NONE IS WORTH IT!!! No matter what I eat or drink, ultimately I have to pause and turn to stuff my face with food, angrily scrub my hands of my jeans, get back into position and un-pause the game. And because I have to pause the game, I have to wait till my in-game character is in such a place as to not be attacked or a video is playing.

I mean think about it. Taking my own example, I was playing Dragon Age Inquisition. One hand on the keyboard, one on the mouse, a bag of crisps by my side. So for each snack I have to wait either at camp, or in the pause screen or loading screens to dip my hand in the bag, pull out the chips and scrounge them, all the while keeping an eye on the screen and making sure nothing of note is happening, or gonna happen the minute I un-pause.

But that's easier when its an RPG games, what about sports game. Try having a snack AND playing NBA2K. I got dunk'd on so much and made so many turnovers that it was just plain embarrassing. Whats the point of having a "gaming industry" when such a basic commodity as a snack is unavailable. It is an absolute outrage, thank heavens I do not play mulitplayer games. How do you expect to survive when ambushed in OVERWATCH and seeing your biscuits laying just outside your keyboard reach? Simple, you dont, you either die in OVERWATCH and eat, or risk starvation but get one measly kill before you are killed again, for the umpteenth time.

So at the end of this rant, I would just say, NEVER DRINK COFFEE IN THE MIDDLE OF A GAMING SESSION, the potential for destruction and injury is surprisingly high

What, can't you just pause or quit the gamefor a while and eat? It's not exactly a first world problem, you know.
