I respect a game like Hidden Target (a.k.a. Jonathan Kane: The Protector) that features a soda machine in the very first room of the tutorial level. It makes my job so much easier.
You know, for a game with a flashy title like Megamagic: Wizards of the Neon Age, this is a surprisingly sedate soda machine. Thanks for the screenshot, Cornelius!
Will you choose classic Coma Cola or Coma Cola Xtrem Flavour in cyberpunk RPG E.Y.E.: Divine Cybermancy?
No wonder senpai doesn’t notice me in Yandere School. He’s too distracted by all the vending machines!
If you want a Blast soda from this vending machine in Retro City Rampage, it’s gonna cost ya $15. Just for fun, here’s the same scene in “Super Video Brick” mode…

Why do I get the feeling these Coke machines were used without permission? Paranoia 2: Savior also features this austere Soviet-era soda machine.
Thanks for the screenshots, Albert!

Soda machines make frequent appearances in both zombie apocalypse games and hidden object games, so it’s no surprise to find this ice cold drinks machine in Small Town Terrors: Livingston, a hidden object game about the zombie apocalypse. Thanks, Cornelius!
I’m not sure I want to try a drink called Sexy Licks. You can tell the developers were particularly proud of this one, because the texture file for the soda machine is named hehe.jpg.
Thanks to both Albert and Darren for tracking this one down for me!
Like Chie, the protagonist of LcdDem, I enjoy balancing newly purchased soda cans on my head before inbibing.

Who can resist an Addictive Soda? This screenshot is from Ion Maiden, a brand-new old-school FPS from 3D Realms, developed using the Build engine made famous by games like Duke Nukem 3D and Shadow Warrior. Thanks, Anatoly!
Oh, and it turns out the machines also appear in other colors.
It’s a bunch of drink machines — or “dispenzahs” in the parlance of Oddworld — from Munch’s Oddysee for the Game Boy Advance! Each drink provides a different power-up.
Judging by its color scheme, I can only assume this soda machine from Lizzie McGuire 2: Lizzie Diaries for the Game Boy Advance dispenses some knock-off version of TaB. The same soda machine also pops up on the game’s menu screen.
Ai Hidaka seems apprehensive about these soda machines from THE iDOLM@STER: Deadly Stars for the Nintendo DS.
Soda cans purchased from this machine in Zoo Tycoon DS will apparently satisfy some, but not all, of a guest’s thirst. Is it just me, or does that look like a crypto-Red Bull machine to anyone else?
