Poll: Do you eat Doritos and/or drink Mountain Dew when you play games? (659 votes)

Yes, doesn't everybody? 17%
No. Who is this imaginary person you speak of? 84%

If this was asked already please forgive me but seriously, who does that? Doritos are so messy to eat and mountain dew? Why mountain dew? Why not a Coke or juice?

I don't like Doritos, and mountain dew is not for sale in my country. :c

No. Ugh.

When I play games? No

Ever? No.

#105 Edited by Joeyoe31 (848 posts) -

I can't take this thread seriously.

#106 Posted by SpencerBoltz (87 posts) -

I will sometimes drink water while I play games. Eating and drinking is for before or after gaming though.

#107 Posted by spiceninja (3144 posts) -

Mountain Dew is gross.

#108 Posted by Demoskinos (16320 posts) -

If there is Mt. Dew around in the house then sure I'll have a can around to drink in while loading screens are up or something. I'll tell ya what though. Fuck the Mt. Dew going to the local Sheetz and grabbing a Peach Faygo is what its all about son .99 cents gets you 24 oz of peach goodness.

Wow, this is a timely reference.

My soft drink of choice is Irn Bru. It is King of all Soft Drinks.

So that'll be no then

#111 Posted by Danteveli (1300 posts) -

I drink Mountain Dew from time to time but never during gaming sessions.

#112 Posted by FesteringNeon (2227 posts) -

I'm a savage with the stuff... I just dump Doritos and Mtn Dew all over my body, all of the time.

#113 Posted by sirdesmond (1312 posts) -

I drink Mountain Dew from time to time, sure, but I never really eat Doritos, certainly not when using a controller.

#114 Posted by Meptron (1176 posts) -

Only the most extreme video games warrant the extreme flavour combination of dew and doritos. Something extreme like call of duty with nuclear hover-skateboards.

#115 Edited by Veektarius (5345 posts) -

Technically I have at least at some point eaten Doritos and played games at the same time (though I recognize the logistical problems with doing so). I never liked mountain dew though. Years ago, when they had Mountain Dew Black, that was a bit different.

#116 Posted by thugg1280 (95 posts) -

never don't want Doritos Dust on my controller and Mountain Dew don't like it drink a lot of ice cold water

#117 Edited by Beforet (2991 posts) -

Nah. I don't even like eating doritos when on the computer. Shit gets on your hands. Mountain Dew I just don't like. I've always been an Aspartame kind of guy.

#118 Edited by devilzrule27 (1241 posts) -

Games are for children so I only eat animal crackers and drink capri sun while I play them...

I do seriously enjoy me some animal crackers though.

#119 Posted by Gamer_152 (14284 posts) -

No. Usually I don't even snack while playing video games, but when I do I don't want Doritos controller and I rarely drink Mountain Dew. I don't necessarily think the whole gaming-Doritos/Mountain Dew brand synergy thing is because marketers think everyone does this, more just that there's probably some overlap between the audience for these products. None the less, these marketing campaigns seem dumb as all balls.

Nothing fuels my game like Doritos and the Dew.

#121 Posted by fleabeard (221 posts) -

I love eating DORITOS® while I play Halo 4 on my Xbox 360, and then washing it down with a nice cool refreshing Mountain Dew. Just remember... Do the Dew™

#122 Edited by BigJeffrey (5073 posts) -

Even when playing Mobile Games i get my phone's screen dirty as fuck with Doritos.


#123 Posted by Levio (1798 posts) -

The only way to get good at SC2 is to starve yourself until you win games. If your zerglings die, tough, you're going to bed hungry.

#124 Edited by LeYcH (221 posts) -

Only if I play on the PS3.

I hate getting Doritos on my brand new Razer gear.

#125 Posted by altngr (51 posts) -

Doritos, I (despite my better judgement) will eat occasionally. Only when watching stuff though; don't want to get that cheese crap all over the controller. Mountain Dew, or any other pop, I don't drink since it's horrendously bad for you.

#126 Posted by Kill (339 posts) -

Is anybody else currently trying to lose weight through summer? I'm not allowing myself to eat any junk at all and this thread is giving me some serious cravings.

Doritos are fucking delicious.

#127 Posted by Riven126 (17 posts) -

No. Usually when I play games I'm not eating anything and if I'm drinking something it's usually water.

#128 Posted by Efesell (869 posts) -

Mountain Dew, sure.

Chips and controller though, ehhh.

#129 Edited by Grilledcheez (4006 posts) -

I rarely eat anything while actually PLAYING games...I might have some kind of beverage, typically water.

#130 Posted by Klei (1799 posts) -

No. I'd feel way too bad eating shit stuff while playing a game and I hate greasy fingers on my controllers. I only do it like, once a week while watching a good movie.

#131 Posted by ClairvoyantVibrations (982 posts) -

I don't eat while playing games (gotta keep that keyboard clean), but I do enjoy a Code Red once in a while.
When I'm not playing games though, and I do want to eat some chips, it's usually Nacho Cheese Doritos.

#132 Edited by Natesaint (148 posts) -

If I have plenty of napkins, then maybe. Otherwise, I prefer to keep my sixty dollar controller free from nacho cheese gunk. No Mountain Dew either. A coke yes.

#133 Edited by captain_clayman (3349 posts) -

I don't eat anything while gaming, I don't want to get cheese dust on the controller. As for mountain dew, sure, on the occasion that I actually have it.

#134 Edited by Sergio (2581 posts) -

I drink ginger ale. No eating while playing.

#135 Posted by RetroVirus (1541 posts) -

I don't drink Mtn Dew, but I am partial to some Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos and Cool Ranch from time to time.

#136 Edited by tread311 (373 posts) -

If they weren't so damn bad for you I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't keep some Doritos and Mountain Dew around. As it is though I pretty much avoid it.

#137 Posted by shadows_kill (3093 posts) -

Any messy food? No. But I do commonly drink soda including Mt. Dew.

#138 Posted by GnomeonFire (881 posts) -

I drink water and chew gum.

#139 Posted by ThePickle (4267 posts) -

I've had Mountain Dew once in my life. I rarely eat Doritos, and never eat anything that gets on my hands when I have a controller in my hand/

#140 Posted by supermonkey122 (1033 posts) -

If I have them, then yes. I'll usually take a pause break to eat the Doritos, or eat during a cutscene, then lick the Dorito dust off my fingers. Delicious.

#141 Posted by Nethlem (465 posts) -

People complaining about Doritos making everything dirty: You are doing it wrong!

You are not supposed to touch them Doritos with your fingers! You are supposed to pour them out of the bag, straight into your face. That's the only legit way to eat junk like that, while gaming.

#142 Posted by Rincewind (306 posts) -

I don't mind a glass of pepsi max but nothing that will cake my fingers in dust.

Water from a mason jar, black coffee (fuck your sugar), or beer for me. If I get hungry, I stop playing and eat real food with a knife and fork. One thing at a time.

This man knows what he's talking about,

#144 Posted by RelativelyRelevant (2 posts) -

Wouldn't want Doritos dust on controllers, granted Doritos are freakin' delicious...

#145 Edited by ReapersPuppy (534 posts) -

more like gummy worms, cherry dr pepper an beef mothafucknn jerkkyy!

#146 Posted by Yummylee (23268 posts) -

No for both. Pepsi-Max is often at my side whenever I'm playing a game, though.

#147 Posted by Slay3r1583 (676 posts) -

Not while playing games but yes I do enjoy both Doritos and Mountain Dew, sometimes even together.
