Eating and playing video games. Two age-old pastimes (alright, so the former has been around a little longer than the Xbox) that seemingly share no link. But a quick glance back over the most popular games of the last thirty years points to food being an ever-present theme in the gaming world, and developers Bossa Studios have taken this to the next level with their latest release, I Am Bread.
