A video game sequel should always strive to improve on the original. For instance, the soda machines in Secret Service: Security Breach actually have dispensing trays (in contrast to those featured in its predecessor, Secret Service: In Harm’s Way).
Why so sad, random guy from Alpha Prime? There’s a drink machine right over there. [Source]
It’s difficult to make out the logo on this drink machine from Blind Shot: Assassin’s Confession (Sim Beer? Pim Beer?), but given the Coke-inspired design and its placement in a hospital lobby, I’m going to assume it dispenses some kind of soda. [Source]
For a game called State of Decay 2, these vending machines appear to be in decent enough shape. Thanks for the screenshot, combat honey!
You know a game like Secret Service: In Harm’s Way is going to be good when its default installation directory is named “Activision Value.” But, hey — at least they had room in the budget for multiple soda machine designs!
There are coffee machines in the game, too — although the artist didn’t exactly nail the spelling on “coffee.”
Please note the absence of any kind of dispensing tray on all three models. Activision Value indeed.
Drink cola to restore health in Hell Hound. Just keep it quiet unless you want to alert the devilish beast stalking your military base. Thanks, Josh!
When Kitty Hawk’s helicopter crashes on an island in the South Pacific, she’s left to fend for herself in K. Hawk: Survival Instinct. Thankfully, the island is stocked with cold drinks. Thanks for the screenshot, Albert!
I’m hooked on the great taste of Reel Cola from Bait!, a fishing sim for Android and Oculus VR. Thanks for the heads-up, Brian!
Sometimes, Yamada-kun gets a tasty milk. Other times, it’s a refreshing soda. Thanks for the screenshot, ozuka music!
It’s a row of vending machines from Death Road to Canada, some in better shape than others. Thanks, Pablo!

It always seemed like there must be a soda machine lurking somewhere in the Double Dragon series, and I finally found these in Double Dragon II for the Game Boy!
Of course, it’s worth noting that the Game Boy release of Double Dragon II was actually a re-skin (soda machines and all) of Nekketsu Kōha Kunio-kun: Bangai Rantōhen, an entry in the Kunio/Nekketsu High series.
Yet again, soda machines provide a unique window into video game history.
I love everything about this promotional blurb for Gore: Ultimate Solider, a 2002 FPS for Windows: “Anarchy reigns on Earth and you must train in the MEAT MACHINE to prove yourself.” Of course, with all that MEAT MACHINE training, you’ll need to stay properly hydrated.
Weird…I can’t see Triple H’s opponent in that screenshot. Must be a glitch.
Anyway, WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2010 for the Nintendo DS features a variety of Raw, SmackDown, and ECW themed soda machines in its backstage areas.
Check out the split screen soda machine action in A Way Out, a prison escape ’em up from Hazelight Studios. Thanks for the screenshot, Dan!
