Hey all--just a short note to complain about Facebook and its multitude of mediocre games. And to praise emulators.
I only gave in and tried Farmville because I kept receiving gifts and it seemed like a waste. And then it didn't do anything. What kind of game do you spend 2 minutes on once a day to little or no gain but accumulating things on a big square? I don't feel like "levelling-up" gets me anywhere. And that, friends, sums up most of my experience with Facebook and its games. True, I gave a few of them a week or so before I gave up, but for the vast majority I did give up. And there are a couple more that I still log in here and there to make myself feel better.
Like Ponzi, Inc. Ponzi is probably one of the more original pieces on Facebook. It's a game where you own a business and benefit from your friends' hard work. Sounds good, right? Really what it boils down to is that effort gets you somewhere. In Farmville? Not so much.
And then I started to play some classics on Project 64. Nooooo comparison.
