    Right, keep yourself on a caffeine high all evening and into the early hours, then you can't sleep. Next morning fall asleep, at school, driving to work, at work, delete as appropriate...

    You say this like you think people don't already do the exact the same thing. Caffeine-fueled all-nighters have been a gamer staple for pretty much as long as there have been games.

    Contains Choline which does help your brain focus, but a couple of filter coffees and a bag of peanuts wouldn't be much different to this, and probably far healthier too.

    But this is actively encouraging such unhealthy behaviour and at a high price.

    Do these things also not raise your pulse and make you all jittery... kinda the last things you want from a gamer?

    Maybe not … caffeine affects people differently depending on the concentrations and what other compounds are in the drink.

    95mg isn't that much caffeine. You'd probably get more if you filled that shaker with Pepsi Max. You'd definitely get more from a double espresso. It's maybe three mugs of green tea. It's a third of the amount I take at the start of a long bike ride. We're not talking caffeine in quantities that'll have you bouncing off the ceiling here.

    Sure, there are people out there who'll ignore the instructions and warnings and drink way too much of this stuff. But they're already doing that with Pepsi Max, and Mountain Dew "Game Fuel", and Monster, and all those other energy drinks that are available. This isn't going to make a lot of 'normal' gamers suddenly rush to try pulling all-nighters fueled by a niche energy product. It's an alternative product for people who're already doing that.

    EDIT: just did a quick google check. Monster has 160mg of caffeine per can. As I said, the people who would do this are already doing it. This might even be better for them...

    Re: Respawn by Razer is a caffeine laced energy drink for gamers

    For the FPS people, unless the flavour is addictive, I think that mixing water with the powder will prove too much of a distraction, when compared with reaching for another ring-pull. For a proper five minute break the coffee making ritual is probably better. It's neither one thing or the other.

    Me, I'll stay with the slightly more leasurely RPG games and the decaff.

    I'll agree on that. Though like caffeine some games can be too addicative maybe.
    On Steam the most helpful reviews for past 30 days for "Black Desert Online" are both NEGATIVE. One player has 4491 hours of play and the other 10,144 hours.

    10K is more than the hours in a year.

    (Some of that could well be leaving the game running in the background on "auto fishing".)

    I've just passed the 100 hours mark, perhaps I should stop now.
