If you’re reading this, you probably share the same passions we do: coffee and video games. Usually, the two are separate, but we like to blend the video game with our coffee; and some game devs felt the same for coffee in their video game! Here is our list for favorite coffee featured in video games:
5) The Evil Within 2
The Evil Within 2 is an awesome horror game published by Bethesda. Just like the first game, it feels a lot like a love letter to traditional survival horror games like Resident Evil 2 or Silent Hill. But the coffee scenes in the game also feel like a love letter to coffee whenever the main character pours themselves a cup! The ritual of drinking the coffee is wonderfully animated and a delightful contrast to the jump scares the game can cause
4) Animal Crossing: New Horizons
If you’ve been on the internet at all in 2020, you’ve probably seen people go wild over Animal Crossing: New Horizons on the Nintendo Switch! One of the most popular features of the newest addition to the franchise is that you can decorate outside much easier, enabling people to really go wild with their islands! There are a lot of different coffee themes items, giving you the ability to make your own outdoor cafe! We just hope that there will be The Roost and Brewster make a return in a new update, the museum needs him!
3) Fallout: New Vegas
In Fallout New Vegas’ Honest Hearts add-on, a new consumable item named “Black Coffee” is made available to the player. Personally, we wouldn’t recommend the beverage… it is actually made from the leaves of wild tobacco and pods harvested from the honey mesquite tree. But when we get the opportunity to acknowledge a personal favorite RPG, we’ll take it! Maybe just add a little bit of cream to soften the kick it has.
Necrobarista is a cinematic visual novel set in a magical Melbourne cafe where the dead are granted one last night to mingle with the living. The story takes place in Melbourne, Australia, where get to work in a coffee shop filled with all the usual clientele: hipsters, gangsters, necromancers, and ghosts.
1) Coffee Talk
Coffee Talk has often been referred to as the ASMR of video games. It’s a story told from the perspective of a barista in a fantasy-setting Seattle (which always gives us some laid back Shadowrun vibes). In the game, you make your guests coffee while listening to their problems, with the ingredients you use playing a part in helping them. Toga Productions, the developers of Coffee Talk, describe the game as a story “that tries to depict our lives as humanly as possible while having a cast that is more than just humans.”
