We're all here because we play (or played) video games. And I'm pretty sure that at least once, we've all looked at a video game food and thought:
"I wonder what the heck that tastes like?"
While we may not be able to bring the flavor to real life, we can honor the delicious foods we've seen in various video games. Get ready for our Video Game Power Up Full Course -- a multi-course arrangement of gaming's most mouth-watering foods.
Let's start our meal, waiter.
Hors d'oeuvre: Assorted Shrooms
To start off today's meal, we have a wonderful plate filled with assorted delicacies from the Mushroom Kingdom. Known to have miraculous effects, including but not limited to growing in size, reviving the dead, super speed, and even growing an entire propeller suit around your body. Just don't eat every colorful mushroom you see -- only those with Toad's seal of approval.
Soup: Elixir Soup
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
Also recognized as the favorite soup of the Hero of Winds, all other potions pale in comparison to its excellent taste. While it increases both HP and Magic to full, it also wonderfully doubles any traveling warrior's attack strength.
The recipe is known only to a kind and gentle grandmother living in a far away island in the Great Sea -- but the nice lady provided us with two servings for everyone. Isn't she the sweetest?
Fish: Magikarp Sushi with Slowpoke Tails
Made from a fish that's abundant in the world and contains both the calmness of the sea and ferociousness of the ocean, the Magikarp Sushi is only known to the truly hungry Trainers who have ventured to Lake of Rage.
Accompanied by Slowpoke Tails, a famous delicacy known to reach a price of 1,000,000 PokeDollars, you would have to be an evil organization to not enjoy these.
Meat: Well Done Steak
Monster Hunter Series
A staple in the Hunter lifestyle, the Well Done Steak is a delicious addition to our meal. Increasing a Hunter's Stamina and allowing them to keep on fighting, the monster meat is a fine addition that will surely help you survive... I mean enjoy...the rest of your meal (Cause who knows what all these power ups will do to you...).
Entree: The Sandvich
Team Fortress 2
While we were planning to serve the Sandvich, I'm afraid our recovery team were all wiped out by a very hungry Heavy. So unfortunately, we're going to have to skip this until the next meal.
Dessert: The Cake
Crafted by a state-of-the-art AI known as GLaDOS, this cake was served to those special few who managed to succeed the Test Chambers at the Aperture Science Enrichment Center. It sounds too good to be true, but the taste is vouched for by Doug Rattmann, who says the it's like "a lie".
Drink: Mana Potion
Every Fantasy RPG known to Mankind + More
Ah, how can we forget the drinks? The almighty Mana Potion, found in fantasy RPGs world wide, provides a refreshing taste to supplement your meal, while providing you with that extra MP to strike your enemies down with a well placed Meteor.
Honorable Mention: Cook Kirby's Soup
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Our apprentice chef was cooking up something delicious in the kitchen in preparation for today's meal. But unfortunately, Kirby got a little bit too excited for his soup. Even Mario will tell you that it was a bit too hot, and he throws fireballs!
Well, I hoped you enjoy my video game full course meal. Drop by the comments below and invite us to your VG Full Course or your favorite video game food! Till next time!
