Michibiku's Jenni Lada writes, "If you’ve played a JRPG in the last ten years, you may have noticed a food fixation. Games are determined to ensure parties aren’t set out with empty stomachs. Level-5’s Fantasy Life allows a player to go through the game as a chef, cooking up 105 dishes while also exploring and saving the world. Sorcery Saga: The Curse of the Great Curry God sends its heroine out to dungeons in search of legendary ingredients to save her favorite curry shop, allowing her to cook Curry on Demand in dungeons. There are even games like Rune Factory and Time and Eternity, where food can be tied to affection."
