I feel as if I've cooked more in video games than I ever have in real life or ever will.
There are so many compelling choices right now, from lighter arcade co-op experiences like Overcooked to more intricate simulation games like Cook, Serve, Delicious. One title I've been racking my brain over lately leans far more in the latter direction. Instead of testing your reflexes, Automachef challenges you to mentally break down intimidating logistical problems into smaller, more manageable chunks.
It's a game entirely about building automated kitchens, and when I close my eyes now, all I see is an endless array of robot arms and conveyor belts. It's like I'm back in the Incredible Machine days.
