The Overwatch cookbook has just joined the lineup of recipe books based on video games, and that got us thinking about the many times we’ve come across mouthwatering foodstuffs in our favourite games.

So pull up a seat, unfold your napkin, and let us dish up a smorgasbord of games containing scrumptious digital treats.

1. Final Fantasy XV

It’s not everyone who can pull off five-star cuisine on a portable camping grill while on the road trip of a lifetime, but Ignis’ cooking never fails to amaze. Even the pickiest eater couldn’t fail to drool at the sight of these gorgeous recipehs.

2. Skyrim

Let me guess, someone stole your sweetroll. So sneers every guard in Skyrim, but they’ve got a valid point because those things look amazing. Did you know you can find the recipe in the official Skyrim cookbook?

3. Kingdom Hearts III

Only with a certain rat’s help could our meagre cooking skills transform a pile of fresh ingredients into delectable cuisine worthy of a five star restaurant. The only problem with the Little Chef’s Bistro minigame is how hungry it makes us feel…

4. Fallout 4

The delicious-looking perfectly preserved pies appear in both Fallout 4 and Fallout 76, and your chances of actually getting one from your nearest Port-A-Diner are so low it’s hardly worth getting your hopes up. All you can do is stare sadly through the glass and dream wistful dreams of unattainable pie.

5. Resident Evil 2 Remake

Humour us here. Remember that incredibly realistic-looking burger right at the start? It was just the context, when you knew the next time someone took a bite out of something would be when there was a zombie attached to your neck, that totally destroyed your appetite. The burger is blameless.
