good. holy. christ. it’s a terrible thing i’ve just done there, being blasphemous in the morning. the words were on the screen faster than i could stop them though. sometimes, i become incredibly disappointed with people. the bottom line is that they are dumb, with exceptions of course.
it is being suggested [by forbes, of all people] that a game like farmville is the way of the future. yep, you read that right. it’s the most popular game on facebook right now, and over 75 million people harvest fake crops. that’s not the scary part. the scary part is that it’s being suggested that this nonsense, and others like it, will replace console gaming. yeah. your grandkids may not ever get a chance to play the ps3’s grandkids. and wii and xbox360 may rot. farmville is one of those games i thought was going to be a fad. it requires you to harvest your crops in real time. planted some raspberries and it says you have to pick ’em in 3 days? well, fuck what you’re living through: harvest those berries. or they die/rot/meet some sort of virtual demise.
even aside from the sheer inaccuracy of that harvest timeline [3 days for berries? wtf?], people scramble to meet the deadline. forget school, work, kids, family: you are a fake farmer planting fake crops,with an end goal of a fake harvest. clearly, you have your priorities straight. talk about a sign of the apocalypse.
