At least in America, Pepsi co aggressively markets Mountain Dew and Doritos as the ideal gaming drink and snack. Mountain Dew I get, being a sugary over caffeinated soda, but I don't really get how Doritos have any business near a keyboard or gamepad given how messy they are. Bawls apparently used to be a mainstay of PC gaming, but I've only ever seen it at Micro Center and a specialty candy store at a nearby mall.

Anyway, I was curious what you guys eat and drink, if anything, while playing or preparing to play video games. Would also be particularly interesting to see how preferences differ between regions given how diverse the userbase here is.

Personally having OCD I won't even have a bottle of water let alone snacks or soft drinks near my gaming setup, and honestly with my shit metabolism and excess weight I don't have much room for snacks and sugary drinks in my diet, but I do frequently down iced coffee if that counts for anything. If I had to think of an ideal gamer snack I think it would be nuts, like honey roasted peanuts or smoked almonds in a little tube or cylindrical pouch so you can just pour the nuts down your gullet without getting your fingers coated in seasoning or salt.

I crunch up a bag of Cheetos until it's a fine powder with a Ninja chopper, then I take a 2 liter bottle of Mountain Dew and pour out 2 cups worth so I have plenty of room to funnel in the Cheeto dust without overflowing. I screw back on the cap and drill a small hole and run some tubing into the bottom of the bottle. I keep this at my feet and run the tube up to my mouth so I don't have to stop gaming.

I rent a medium-scale crop dusting aircraft, filling the tanks with 500kg of powdered Cheeto prepared in advance. On the day of gaming, I charter my old NAM buddy, Wharf Rat Steve, who buzzes my house and the surrounding neighborhood unleashing the hellish orange payload.

Then I go out on the patio and fire up my Game Gear to enjoy some Sonic 2. :cool:

Occasionally I'll have a glass of water in the kitchen before heading to my room for games.

That's it.

Wait, really? You mean this isn't just a meme?

Depends on the time of day, what I'm playing, and my mood.

Coffee, black. Usually for the mornings. Sometimes beer, occasionally scotch.

Weed can get paired with any of the above at any time.

800ml of tea with plenty of honey.

I do my snacking during TV/movies mostly.

TEA

Cave, Fence pulled an all nighter the other day and he's such an idiot who never drinks hot drinks of any kind... that the following day he tried to keep himself awake with a coffee.
..so he puts two tablespoons of instant coffee, two tablespoons of sugar. Thought that was normal

he had to shit 8 times.

Sometimes pizza, but I seldom ever eat while gaming. I prefer to enjoy one of the two things at a time.

When I work on making progress in a real-time game I consider challenging, my most serious attempts are shortly after my waking up, on empty stomach, drinking hot water only. Basically - fasting. Not the best time and conditions for one's singing voice, but the sharpest reflexes and real-time awareness in my day-and-night cycle.
