    I think the title speaks for itself, what types of drinks do you usually down while playing games? Me most of the time it’s just boring old water or maybe a diet coke/pepsi, nothing crazy.
    But weekends it’s usually a nice rum and coke or a few beers. Usually Yuengling Lager or if I’m feeling lucky I’ll head to the store and get one “make your own” 6 pack so I can try different beers. I find online gaming just a tad more fun with a good buzz going.

    I’m not an energy drink kinda person so you won’t find me slamming back Monsters or Red Bulls, I think most of that stuff taste horrible. I will on occasion though have a Mt Dew (any flavor, they’re all good). But I try to stay away from regular soda so that’s rare.

    I might be strange since I don’t eat or drink while playing any single player games.

    When playing online it has to be beer since its makes the entire game no matter what genre just better plus its fun to hop on multiplayer when drunk and mess with people.

    A number of years a go I would be drinking some alcoholic drink while gaming (beer or vodka mixer). But, in more recent years I tend to stick to water or a hot drink or tea or coffee. I find I can actually game longer and stay more focussed on the game that way.

    Absolutely nothing during single player games. It’s too difficult to concentrate on whats going on if i’m trying to juggle food, drink and a controller. Completely takes me out of the zone and used to ruin my gaming experience.

    agree with most water for me during single player and a nice craft beer during the weekends when I jump on to multiplayer. Even then it changes. I wont drink when playing counter strike since I take that a little more serious then lets say COD.

    Coffee, lots do coffee. If just chillin on the weekend a few beers but yeah, if you’re looking to really concentrate then coffee or water is best.

    Coffee, water, or coke.

    Beer can be fun with multiplayer, if hanging out.

    Coke, Sprite, apple juice, tea, coffee and water. Rum and Coke or beer when I’m feeling festive.

    Often I forget to drink while I’m gaming. Then the next day I have a headache from dehydration.

    I don’t drink alcohol, so it’s usually some off brand of coke. I drink waaaaaaaaay too many of them while gaming.

    I love tea, when I play games I’m usually drinking some green tea variant like gunpowder or ginseng oolong, and if I want lots of energy I go with a cup of Earl Grey, Darjeeling, or brew a big pot of Yorkshire Gold, which my local grocery store stocks in the UK area of their ethnic foods section (apparently Yorkshire Gold and Hamlyn’s Pinhead Oatmeal are ethnic foods o_O).

    Nothing, really. I guess I might drink some water before I start playing. :P

    segaofmyhouse, you could pause the game and drink some water or something haha.

    killertofu I seem to do better at COD and games like that with a nice buzz going, I’m more relaxed and that tends to make me focus better. Now if I go past a good buzz well it’s anybody’s call as to how well I’ll do haha.

    I don’t usually eat anything while I’m gaming though, and if I do it’s usually some sort of candy like jelly beans or something like that so I don’t get my controllers all messy. I can’t stand when people eat greasy chips and things like that and than slime up their controllers, drives me insane!!!

    It depends on what game and who I am with. Single-player it has to be a couple of bottles of Brooklyn Lager. Multiplayer with some friends, it’s going to be Heineken. Multiplayer with my brother…well let’s just say there’s a lot of alcohol and fun to be had lol
