I need a burrito, stat. It seems people who professionally game tend to skip out on meals. Belong Gaming Arena has announced they'll be fixing this problem by installing a button that delivers the person who hits it a free burrito.

Available in either "meaty" or "veggie", hitting this button will cause a driver for the service Deliveroo, a food delivery service not much unlike Grub Hub or Uber Eats, to go out and pick up a burrito for the player that hit it. Best of all, it's a free burrito, and there's nothing better than a free burrito. The button was trialed today at the Mortal Kombat 11 Arena Clash Tournament at Bristol's Belong Gaming Arena. Anyone was allowed to hit it, which is a really good deal if I do say so myself.

 

So why are they giving you a free burrito? Well, the idea is that esports are becoming more popular and bringing more people together. The problem is that when people are so captivated by video games, they forget to do some of the necessary actions required to keep them alive. Actions such as eating. Thus, the emergency burrito button. This fulfills the goal of both Belong Gaming Arena and Deliveroo of keeping people eating and vaguely healthy while they game. Of course, it likely also fulfills the goal of keeping people in the gaming arena too, but if you give me free burritos I'll basically go wherever. Of course, it's not clear (and probably not likely) that the Emergency Button on full release would actually be free, but one can hope.

Belong Gaming Arenas are located all over Great Britain and give friends and communities a chance to come together and play new releases with each other.

Does your life need a button that just gives you a free burrito? If not, what other sorts of free food do you want? Also, are you going to finish that? Let us know in the comments below!
