What do you eat while you are gaming?
I know this has been a huge issue between me and a few of my friends.
You get hungry while playing (Insert Game here) and want something that is easy to eat but not greasy or leaves crumbs all over and have to wipe your hands on your pants. Chinese Food is hard to eat, while Mexican gets all over the place.
I got to try out this great gaming food called "Gamer Grub (http://www.gamergrub.com/)" (Results (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vochsiu-vfU)) back before when it was in the testing stages. It worked, but you can find it no where as of right now.
was wondering what you do you eat while gaming or any good ideas to solve this problem.

Well, it usually depends on what game system I am playing on. And the game. I usually go for Lays Chips with most systems and games. They're always a good choice of mine.
I like non-greasy foods, though. So the controller(s) or buttons don't get messy.
I love to eat chocolate during any game. :) Along with Potato Chips...even though they are messy.
Edit: I have no idea how to stop the problem.... Perhaps we should take breaks to snack??

Simple, I don't.

I never eat anything while playing a game because I don't want the controller getting dirty.

Same with Gwellin. I prefer clean and fresh. Possibly a drink, as long as the bottle isn't dirty. :lol:

I never eat while I play, either. Occasionally I'll have a Mt. Dew, though. In fact, I prefer to have one rather than not. :lol: But both of my brothers eat while they play, and it makes all of our controllers greasy. It's disgusting. You should see the analog sticks on my GameCube controllers.

Yeah, I really dont eat a thing as well. But I do sometimes drink like soda while I play. But thats all there is.

I don't tend to eat while I'm playing, because I hate having to wipe off my hands everytime I eat a chip so I can get back to the game, and even if I do, my hands are still greasy. x.x If it's something I can eat with a fork, then I'm fine with it. Most of the time I'll just drink a Coke while playing, lol.

If anything its pretzels but not the rods the little sticks or the mini ones so that you can eat them in one bite. If I ever have gummi bears though I eat those since they dont make any mess. I also usually have a drink it me too.

Chocolate chip cookies with sour cream and onion chips. Best combination ever. Add various drinks that may or may not be of an alcoholic nature (depending on the game of course ;) ) and you're in the ZONE. I always have a paper towel or something to wipe my hands on though; dirty controllers are unhappy controllers.

It depends on what game it is. high-intensity action/combat/FPS/etc. games, I won't eat anything. Turn-based/strategy games, I'll eat popcorn, chips when available. I also tend to drink iced tea or water because my living room has become an oven all of a sudden. lol.

You know..I always like to sit down for a few hours of FFXI or MGS online. I usually make a New York Strip steak (Medium well) with gold shavings on top. :lol: No I usually just have popcorn and a Mountain Dew to get me through the night.

I hardly eat while playing, though I do take care to what I eat during a break. However I do drink while gaming and what I drink depends on the game and my mood.

If I'm playing any fast pace game (i.e. FPS, Action RPG, Racing, Tetris, etc.) I go for a cold drink that I can quickly grab and take large sips from. The drink usually is soda, juice, or milk, depending on my mood.

However, if I'm in the mood and I'm playing a slow paced game (turn based RPG, MMO's (between encounters), stuff like that) I love a nice hot cup of tea. It really helps me focus even if I'm at a really boring part.

I usually dont eat anything while playing, because i find it a bit hard to eat while playing or to keep pausing the game to drink/eat.

Yes Pocky is a good non-greasy choice.
Wow I have not had bubble tea in forever.
It is a tea beverage containing tapioca balls at the bottom and has a huge straw.
It is very good, but hard to find in some areas.

Usually nothing, because I'm obsessive about clean controllers. I do drink tea, though... (but that's all day long! XD)

A nice glass of green tea, perhaps some chips or something usually. However, I'm not that OCD about controllers getting dirty and I do eat sometimes while playing, considering I dust/clean everything in my room every night. Dusting/cleaning is something that I AM OCD about. LOL.

What is this mistrust?

This Forum is obviously meant for "exchangive" talk and subjects within the users. For an example, "Pictures of you." Referring to those facts, this thread is very much illegible to take place here, partially proved by the fact that it has kept it's place here without moving for days, and due to that, let's just let the whole thing be like it currently is. Let's certainly just chill, shall we? :)

I don't usually eat while gaming (unless I'm playing my DS). There's no real reason why, I guess I'm just too into the game. The only thing I can remember eating is popcorn. I do love drinking Tahitian Treat (or anything else), though.

Sonic62
06-02-2009, 03:47 PM
Chips, ice cream, popcorn, whatever I can get my hands on. Always gotta have a soda with it or alone.

I normally don't eat while I play video games. If I want to eat, then I'll take a break from playing to actually sit down and grab a bite. When I'm playing I'll usually have a glass of cold green tea or a cup of hot green tea. Sometimes I might be in the mood for an Icee or something. During the times that I have eaten while playing, I was eating potato croquettes with a lot of kewpie mayo drizzled all over them XD This is all since I started college though.

Back when I lived with my family, I drank the same thing, but sometimes I'd have apple pie with vanilla bean ice cream (store-bought of course since I don't have the time to make apple pie from scratch...I wish) or those pizzas that you'd toast in the oven...I forget the brand because there was a particular brand that I really liked.

I never eat while I'm gaming, unless maybe I'm playin an RPG where I can divert my attention for a time. However, I almost always have something to drink. Usually Dr. Pepper or Mt. Dew.

It depends, usually while playing I eat things that don't get too messy, and even if it doesn't I still wash my hands.

If it's really messy I take a break, eat it, clean my self up and start gaming again.

Specially with pizza, cause most pizza is very greasy and I hate it when my friends use my controllers while and after they eat, and don't have the courtesy to clean their hands.

Bagels!

I remember when I was like.. 7, I was eating pancakes while playing the original Super Smash Bros. and I got a ton of maple syrup in the controller and my brother got mad. : P

Eating and gaming at the same time requires a level of multitasking that is entirely beyond my reach. I need to roll like Hedonism Bot and get me a couch with arms that'll feed me as I play.

My favorite gaming food is a plate of kung pao chicken doused with extra red chili pepper flakes and Sriracha Hot Sauce. :twisted:

Pizza w/ mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and fresh garlic + red pepper flakes is a close second. Third would be whatever I can microwave and have in front of me in three minutes or less.

I usually eat a pizza or get a bag of chips. Sometimes, even a bowl of cereal if it's really early in the morning. That and I have to have my blue Mountain Dew Game Fuel. That stuff is awesome!

Like a lot of others, I don't usually eat anything while I get my game on. however, if I were to do so I have a soda and some chips. Pretty simple, but I'm a simple dude. :)

No nasty controllers for me- I just stick to Pepsi.

The common snacks we commonly have are soda, Gatorade, chips, cookies and sometimes beer (except for me). Mostly just the drinks. We usually have dinner ahead of time so we would have washed up before we game. We always do a good job of keeping controllers clean. Hell, my Wavebird is still pretty clean and I haven't cleaned it since I got it.

08-13-2009, 04:01 PM
I really just pause, go into another room, eat what I have to eat, and go back. I really don't like eating during a game, which would explain why I'll get a blood sugar crash and seriously can't play anymore until I actually get something to eat.

Drinks, on the other hand.

Yeah, Toasted Poptarts is really tasty. But I prefer either way. :)

A few years ago, I'd play Pokemon Mystery Dungeon late into the night. I ate the smore Pop Tarts right outta the package, lots of them! :)

Nice. I remember eating some chocolate poptarts, and blueberry ones I think, while I was playing Pokemon Pinball and Pokemon Stadium/2 when I was young. So young, I didnt even bother to throw away the packs when Im done. xD Until the following day and my mom tells me to. :P

Well me i just normally have a box of cheese its in my room so i eat them while i game and i normally just drink water since i dont wanna risk having soda be spilt incase something crazy happens and i rage for a second...as for a crazy thing...if u were just watching the megaman marathon...when Ferenc died on Bass (i guess thats the bosses name) when he was on the last form with only 40hp left

I usually just end up eating a plain tortilla with some ketchup on it. ><

Or I cover one side in peanut butter and fold it into quarters. That's good stuff.
