Ugh, I can see it now. This is just perfect as one of those things that will live in on perpetuity as aunts and uncles and such send it in FW:FW:FW: emails.

Seriously my soon to be ex-wife used to spend 7 hours a day on freaking Farmville alone, this is why I don't waste my time with this stuff.:rolleyes:

The fact that people are so stupid they can be entertained for hours by farmville is beyond me..

I don't think mini games like farmville are meant to entertaining, instead it capitalizes more on the obsessive behaviors of people. My little niece plays the zookeeper thing on her dad's iphone and I believe they are similar games. While she was showing me how to play it, I realized it can easily become addicting for certain types of people who have obsessive/addicting personalities. The need to constantly monitor the game on the progress, and the opportunities for constant improvement and betterment of your farm/zoo/etc.

It is pretty evil if you ask me.

No EVIL is the fact that you can spend REAL money to play the games and get crap for them. I was in 7-11 the other day and I saw this girl with $100 worth of farmville cards. WTF!!!!

How is that any different than spending $15 a month on games like WoW or better yet buying a mount for WoW for $25?


My G/F spends alot of time on FV and some of the other games on FB, thankfully she don't spend any real $$$ on them though :).

Monthly payments for MMO's go toward operational costs.

Micro-purchases on the other hand are useless and fucking dumb. To put it simply.

I hate facebook, but I hate zynga even more. Before facebook, zynga was nothing but spyware spewing, information stealing, pain in my ass. Now they dont need to steal peoples information because they fooled morons into giving all their info and now their money to them directly.

You think the zynga games don't have "operational costs"? Considering everything is on their servers and someone has to do the developing of said games. Instead of charging by the month like some MMO's do they chose to go with advertising and micro transactions instead.

I have an account registered but I am only logged on every other month or so. Not exactly a Facebook addict :)
