  • Food for the insomniac gamer

    When a game is too interesting to stop playing. But you get a growling in your stomach. Your hungry ; you havent been to the store in a few days. But your stock of_____ (insert cpu food) is good.

    Anything to recommend? Cold Pizza, Pretzels, Jolt/mountain dew come to mind.

      ignore the rumblings and keep playing

      cold pizza, sandwiches, anything that you can eat with one hand (while playing with the other) and won't make a big mess if you drop it on your keyboard. i prefer sandwiches, as they don't leave your fingers greasy (so you can play with both hands between bites if necessary) and the crumbs aren't that messy

        If you're playing a game like Civ3 with large wait times between turns then eating a bowl of cereal becomes very easy. That's what I do. No greasy hands, no spilling on the keyboard because you're waiting between turns and don't have to have at least one hand on the keyboard. A good chair and computer desk is all you need.

            Spinach or celery, keeps you healthy. A pound of spinach will fill you up and set you back about a hundred calories, a pound of celery will fill you up and set you back about negative-twenty calories. I've never felt better since I started eating pipe-cleaners for my midnight snacks.

            Oh yeah, and try Code Red (the new Cherry flavored Mt. Dew).

              Bourbon and coke seem to work for me.

              It doesn't really fill me up, but it stops me from realizing I'm hungry

                    Peanuts are my snack of choice. Since I gave up smoking the tendency to eat through huge bags of them has become worrying so I try to stick to fruit instead.
                    To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection.

                      Tomatoes or fruits. Yeah, bananas are good, but make sure you get them from fair trade shops.

                        Don't forget the godfather of all snacks.

                        Microwave popcorn.

                        With the right set-up (microwave close by and a case of corn from the wharehouse store) you'll never have to get up.

                        We're sorry, the voices in my head are not available at this time. Please try back again soon.

                          hot pockets, chex mix, pringles, mountain dew, pizza (order it..then you can be really lazy!), sobe/snapple, cheese n crackers, fritos scoops and some salsa or queso, cookies, cheese nips

                          things to be wary off: anything messy like soup, ice cream (melts), fruits (juices get on your fingers and thus on the controller)

                              How 'bout the ol' baloney sandwich. Forget about the butter, mayonnaise, and mustard and it takes 5.2 seconds to make.
