Before we start a gaming sesh, we all know that at some point, we will need some kind of liquid sustenance to keep us well oiled for the battles and adventures that await us. But what if your poison of choice?
For me, well that all depends on what it is exactly I am planning on playing.
A first-person shooter? It has got to be 100% caffeinated, be it coffee or a good old energy drink, it has to be able to give me an edge over my competition. The same goes for any online competitive game, I feel like caffeine gives me an edge, and maybe a palpitation or two.
If we are talking RPG however, well that’s a whole other ball game, call me old fashioned but it’s got to be an ale. I don’t know why but there is something about delving chin first into a fantasy RPG that makes me want a pint of old school ale. I don’t know whether it’s the thought of being in a tavern with some hard-core stale smelling adventures that appeals to me but it’s gotta be beer for an RPG. As you can imagine, this can cause a few issues from time to time, mainly the increase in toilet breaks, slow reflexes, slight loss of vision and the impending, ‘where the hell am I?’ when I load the game up the next morning.
Everything else, well sadly that would have to be good old boring H20. I try to drink as much water as I can but I feel like gaming is a good opportunity to get the litres put away. I don’t know about you but I drink 10 times more when I’m gaming then any other time, I don’t know whether it’s the pressure, loading screens or need for breaks but I drink a lot while I’m gaming!
Do you have a particular way of keeping yourself oiled through a good gaming session? Let us know!
