Gamer best restaurants in Japan

Something people say you can’t really go wrong but actually that’s not true: Yoshinoya is not recommended, go to Matsuya instead.  Gogo and Joto curry are popular and it’s a wonder why.  This page will get an update as there are many wonderful places to eat, so please enjoy the first set.  Note that the cafes are really just places to rest at, not purveyors of fine cuisine (no matter what good pics you see), and theme cafes are for the theme experience.
