Video game cuisine at its finest

Food is awesome. Video game food is the best use of lines of code I have ever drooled over. This Saturday, I'm listing some of the most appetizing foods in video games.

Food in video games looks so freaking appetising I think I wouldn't mind pulling a Cypher just to go to town on some of these dishes. So I decided that, today, I'd list a couple of the most appetising foods from video games.

I'm staying away from the likes of I Am Bread, Candy Crush Saga, and the rest of the food-themed Sagas. That said, lets dig in:

The Sims 3: Goopy Carbonara

It costs §11 to cook, you can make it for lunch and dinner and it looks deliciously gooey. A number of stoves have been set on fire by little old me, all in the attempt of making this dish. In the game, of course. I can't cook. But oh boy, does it look mouth-wateringly gorgeous! Melted cheese and bacon make everything better.

Kingdom Hearts: Honeybunny

For this ice cram you'll need three honeybunches and a couple of apple pies. It looks and sounds delicious and, for the sake of everything that's good and pure in this world, it's shaped like a bunny. While I could now link an article about bunnies I did a couple of weeks ago, I'm not going to do that.

But, just in case you're interested,  you go. I'm even recycling "jokes" now.

Sonic The Hedgehog: Chili Dog

It's a hot-dog served "in a bun and topped with some sort of meat sauce with chopped onions and a spicy substance known as jalapeños chili."

It's said to be the Hedgehog's favourite food. Maybe that's the reason he's so fast: too many chili dogs and too few bathrooms, wink wink.

Final Fantasy XI: Moogle Pie

This exclusive apple pie has been enchanted by a moogle baker. It's a bit burnt but to you, it looks delicious (might be the enchantment doing its thing). All races can consume it, and for 180 minutes experience +20 health and magic points, +1 on strength, dexterity, vitality, agility, intelligence, and more.

Team Fortress 2: Sandvich

This "Edible Device" is an unlockable secondary weapon for the Heavy character. The sandwich looks like an amazing snack for a growing boy like Misha. It's a triangular sandwich with tomatoes, lettuce, Swiss cheese, and a few slices of both ham and bologna. A green olive is pinned to the sandwich using a toothpick. Excuse me for just a second. 

That was delicious. Now, the benefits of eating such a sandwich are: restores 300 health over the course of four seconds, when dropped and picked up again (mind the 3 second rule though) it restores the recharge bar and more.

Paper Mario: Koopasta

Can you tell I like pasta? This green pasta appears in the Paper Mario series and it's made with Koopa leaf and dried pasta in the first game. When playing Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, you'll need a Turtely leaf (same as the Koopa leaf), and some fresh pasta. While it looks great, it also grants seven HP and seven FP in the first two games. Additionally, it halves the amount of damage taken for 30 seconds in Super Paper Mario. And you thought pasta wasn't healthy!

Portal: Cake

You saw this one coming, right? I mean, come on. The notion of the cake is like the light at the end of a long tunnel, and it comes as a surprise that it is in fact [spoilers] not a lie. The cake finally appears at the end of the first game, making you have mixed feelings about what you just did, you monster. The very real cake was inspired by the Black Forest cake sold in a bakery near the Valve headquarters. 

And that would be it. I'm off to stuff my face now.
