Click this soda machine from Halo 5: Guardians a bunch of times to unlock a soccer match Easter egg.
Captain John Anderton, I’m placing you under arrest for the future vandalism of this soda machine from Minority Report: Everybody Runs for the PS2.
See? The precogs are never wrong.
V.I.P. for the PlayStation 2 (based on the Pamela Anderson television series of the same name) combines on-rails shooting with quick time event combat in a way that almost works. That said, Marquee Premium Cool is an above-average fictional soda name.
The Mini-Skirt Police for PlayStation 2 does exactly what it says on the tin — with the added bonus of vending machines!
If Headhunter for the PS2 has taught me anything, it’s that nothing washes away the pain of a brutally unforgiving stealth shooter like an ice-cold Sunny. I have no idea why the vending machine is only four feet tall.
Just for fun, here’s an advertisement for Must Power Drink that appear on Headhunter’s loading screens.

Just playing some LawBreakers before it goes offline in a couple of months. If you can’t get enough of that tea-infused cola taste, there’s another Chabi Cola machine in the archives.
I also stumbled across this, uh, let’s call it a “beverage station” while playing. It definitely offers soda and has a dispensing tray, so I’m going to say it’s sci-fi soda machine adjacent.

I tried to come up with a decent coffee filter/Syphon Filter joke to accompany these vending machines from Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain for the PS2, but I came up empty. I guess you’ll just have to settle for the screenshot.
Here’s another vending machine from later in the game, but it’s a little difficult to tell whether it’s selling soda or cigarettes.
