A Hilarious Take on How Gamers Eat Their Food
This humorous, fan-made video parodies what it is like to eat according to some of our favorite video game mechanics.
YouTuber user Mr.TVCow has made many short films featuring the applications of video game mechanics to real life in the past, but this one about table-side etiquette is the most comical.
This video, titled “How Gamers Eat Their Food,” introduces us to two gentlemen eating vegetables and drinking potions at a table with one with of them wearing a horse head mask. The man without the mask asks his companion, “Want to see how gamers eat their food?” and puts on an iron helmet replica from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. In Skyrim fashion, the food on the table, including the health and mana potions, instantaneously vanish one by one.
The video starts recreating the dining sequence using many other famous game motifs. After Skyrim, the next method of eating is Assassin’s Creed, which features the same unmasked man, now in an Altair garb, jumping towards the table and eating with his face covered as Templar soldiers pass by, presumably looking for him. The video then goes from Assassin’s Creed to Minecraft, Portal, Thief, DayZ and even Hitman. Our favorite would have to be the BioShock Infinite sequence, where the unmasked man rips open a tear to an alternate reality with a surprising twist.
