Why no hamburgers in the future?

#1 Posted by Ockman (207 posts) -

Ever notice that games that take place in a future setting never seem to have hamburgers? I mean, unless it's a future setting where everyone is a health nut, I think hamburgers would be one thing that would always survive into the future, but there never is any.

i think its because hamburgers dont fit in with all the modern stuff. when i think of hamburgers, i think of movies in the 50s where there were diners that served mostly hamburgers. or those 80s coke commercials where there were a lot of smexeh people at the beach barbecuing hamburgers and drinking coke. i think its just an aesthetic thing.

Hamburgers eventually evolved and formed their own colonies in space

well theyll find a way to advertise it to a changing market. also i think its just the way artists make the future out to be. different artists draw it out differently. i can imagine marcus and dom from gears sitting down to have a hamburger, but it would look out of place in mass effect. both are set in the future.

we'll just have to wait and see, but i think youre right, hamburgers will always be sold at the rate fast food chains are growing.

Ah, hamburgers. Do not worry, for when there's grieving, there's Ronald MacDonald.
Besides, they're quite independent and smart.
I wouldn't be surprised if they DID form colonies in space.

I bet you Too Human will feature a hamburger somewhere in the game.

why would their be hamburgers in fps's?

I believe noone has made a decent "Food Fight" FPS game yet, hamburgers would totally be involved.

I think because it is just hard to have hamburgers in a video game unless there is a restaurant in the game.

It better have different tiers of hamburgers with different skill requirements and stat boosts.

I'm pretty sure Breakdown was a futuristic game.

Because in a post apocalyptic society, all of the cows are dead.

In the future, animals are scarce. Hamburgers are rare... Scary times... Prepare yourself!

People don't need food in the future. They run on an injection of various vitamins in the morning that keeps them alive.
