Flaming Yong? What? Do you mean Filet Mignon?
Stupid google speak. Already changed.

Dont burn Yong Yea like that. Dude has had a decent youtube channel.
Fixed. His channel is not good and not much of a news channel when most of it is repetitive second hand information. I used to subscribe to him, but dropped him within a year. Plus, I can't stand some of his obvious hypocrisy.

  • Final Vendetta is a British dance club and bar with good and decent drinks, though fairly overpriced.
  • Bayonetta 3 - Is all the restaurants at the food court at your favorite local mall that has great stuff, but barely last long enough to matter or only stick around for a month or two to be replaced by something else. While one of the restaurants which has been around since the mall's creation is still around and has not gone anywhere, because people love it so much, but eventually will close down in time.
  • Gungrave is that Japanese food stand that's surprisingly good. Overdose is it said or imitation of that surprisingly good Japanese food stand, and leaves your stomach upset after eating there.
  • Ninja Gaiden is where all the food is spicy 🥵. Made only for the most hardcore and masochistic.

Elden Ring is like a Hotel Buffet but a cheap one where nothing is labeled and the food is set out in a bunch of different rooms. The food is decent but finding exactly what you want is difficult and you end up eating whatever you come across even if you dont really want it.

Lol was just going to say it’s like an all you can eat buffet, but everything is covered and you could wind up with several duplicates. Some trays were made by a five star chef whereas others were just fast food takeout.

I’m trying to think of one for GodRag now but not completely sure as I’m only past the first Atreus section now. Sure is a lot easier on Balance diff though.

Anyways so far I’m thinking it’s ultimately a nine course (get it?) meal made by a five star chef, but the chef gets to choose what you eat, when, and how much. Also you can’t start another course until you at least eat the bulk of the previous. The chef will also explain how he made it as well as a brief history of each dish, and the waiter will ask you every so often how you’re doing, while occasionally giving tips on how to eat it.

Yeah, it’s all but given away as to who the chef and waiter might be.

GodRag is a high end chain restaurant. Where the food is always consistently good if not always spectacular. But it doesn't matter what you order, you know you'll get a pretty good meal no matter what. I'm thinking something like the Cheesecake Factory or something along those lines. However the downside is that you likely aren't going to be too surprised by anything.

What’s FF7/Remake? :)

Never mind, just saw on 1st page unless you care to revisit/elaborate.

Witcher 3 is like a fancy three-course meal that you love to have. But you may also find a piece of bone or a hair every now and then

I find Soulsllike games to be a spicy food challenge; they make you feel like everything is on fire, but you keep coming back for more because you enjoy it.

rougelike games are blind food test; you might taste heaven or shit.

Persona 5 is like kimchi or any fermented food; the longer you play it, the more you enjoy it

Finally, Battlefield is a restaurant which once had five star review, but is now sitting at three star

I got couple more;

No man’s Sky is like food made by culinary student; it tastes like shit at first but gets better with each attempt due to genuine effort

Minecraft is like thanksgiving turkey; it’s a well-known dish, but everyone has different ways to cook it. And everyone likes to argue their take is the greatest.

Animal Crossing New Horizon is like a vanilla ice cream; it’s a basic flavor but everone is supposed tohave a neutral love for it.

Battle Royale games are like Hawaii pizza. You either love it or hate it

Classic games from NES era are like wild game meat; Ancient and tough ways to acquiring the meat, but once you try it over camp fire it makes it taste all the better.

Halo Infinite is like one of those lab-grown meat. It may look AND taste like organic meat, but no one would actually consider eating it

Gungrave GORE is a Korean food stand that does a good job of imitating that surprisingly good Japanese food stand, does its own unique things for the better, but at the same time does either weird foods, or requirements to have said foods no one was asking for. People will like it there, but others will be turned away, or prefer just going to that original food stand.

Overwatch 2 is that greasy diner that you don't go to every day because you just can't handle more than one meal every week or so, but the food's good as long as you know what menu options to avoid and don't order too much at once, and then wait a while before going back again.

Evil West is your local South Western/Western style steak 🥩 house with all kinds of variety of meat. Not everything is healthy for you, but it's good to eat there every now and then. The place also has some appeasing appetizers as well.

Prodeus is a food place that imitates the resturnants of the 90s almost to a T. Yet, the food has a good familiar but slightly different taste to it. That said, they need to add more to the menu.
