i still hate facebook games. they just keep clogging up my feed. i have written about this before, but i am really getting annoyed. i hide everything. today i hid no fewer than A MILLION different games from my creep feed. ok, it was probably more like 15, but still. i get that they have business value, but i just want to read the updates of friends. also, people i barely talk to.
this game crap facebook has is a pain in the ass. ostensibly, it’s to retain users. being a business professional, i understand the value. on the personal side? fuck all that shit. give me team death match.
my real issue is the real world time it takes up. seriously. you plant crap, then you must harvest in three days or the crop dies and jesus kills a baby koala somewhere. hi, i have a real life. i sure as fuck don’t have time to stop drinking my artisan beer with friends to go do something to do with fake corn. or making out with one of the boyfriends to go harvest virtual strawberries. or to tell the boss man ‘hey sorry, can’t attend that super important meeting you need me for since i have to go sell some hay’.
i could give a shit about farmville, mall world, or whatever other fucking bullshit that’s popular. facebook games are worse than the wii. they aren’t games. no self-respecting gamer actually plays this shit. and if they do, they ought to be hella ashamed of themselves.
zuckerberg, please don’t set EVERY SINGLE DAMN GAME to publish into my feed. or at least explore the options of a real game.
