Boy this category was hard. Now I won’t lie, until recently I played Mafia Wars on Facebook for quite a while, probably just over a year I think. Not that I really liked the game, but as a true gamer you like to finish games, problem with the Social Network games is that they are like herpes – forever. You just keep playing and they just keep developing content it is like a horse with a carrot on a stick, you will never quite reach the prize.
So after some thinking, and more thinking then thinking some more I give you this:
I don’t like this game, in fact I think it is just plain silly. If you want to work in a restaurant, go cook or waitress. But my wife loves this game and I am naming it the winner of this category for her. Don’t say I never do anything for you baby.
Personally I play video games for imagination and things I can not do in real life. I would enjoy being a Jedi and battling evil, they don;t exist so I play video games. I would love to jam a basketball and make millions playing in the NBA, I can so I play video games. I would say something about Grand Theft Auto here but I don’t want the police at my door.
Seriously video games are about making the unreal, real. Cooking and serving food in real-time is not fun in my opinion. But Zynga is making millions because everyone wants to spend $30 bucks to have pink fences on their farm and heart-shaped tables in their cafes…. you are brilliant Zynga, truly brilliant.
