Seems like the sort of thing someone ought to have started long ago.

Contact (DS) and The World Ends With You surely qualify.  Also Superhero League of Hoboken.
This depresses me. I feel like a goldfish right now...

i assume this trope would encompass an unwieldy huge amount of titles, because there's food aaall over the place in very many games. like in just about every open-world RPG in history.

so, to actually add something: Tokyo Xanadu, 'cos that's what i'm playing now.

Instead of suggesting them, why don't you go to the trope page and actually add and say some stuff about them?  That's why I linked to it; let's save this thread for surrounding discussion.

I just added all of them myself, except for Superhero League of Hoboken, which I couldn't find anything comprehensive for.  I never played those few games personally, so I'm sure you two or anyone else familiar could consider elaborating on them better than I managed.  (Jorpho, as the one who suggested SLoH, why don't you go there and add whatever you may know about that game's examples and utilization of food?)
