So we all never would play this stupid "game" right?

Right.

So since they seem to have opened the two GB accounts: Steve: http://t.co/VQgZNqN & Matt: http://on.fb.me/nZZ3Cj

Since I don't play it either, I won't totally be sending an invite.

Installed it. Researched it. A little strategy and I was planting cotton over the entire field my first day. At 53,000 … coins(?) now with no real money spent. Sent an invite because I want more 'neighbors' to get the biggest land so I can get more points. POINTS!

Its true that Farmville is utter crap, and i would never spend 1 second in it. But its still a game, and an successful one too, so if people want to spend their time playing it or even weirder spend their time watching people play it, all the power to them. Luckily for me i can just ignore it.

I started playing it yesterday. It's not something I'm going to stick with past Betting the Farmville, but I can see the appeal of the game and why it is so popular.

What the hell is this post? You started a sentence like 3 times, then just trailed off on all of em. I can't even tell what you're tryina say.

"Farmville sucks. Here's a plug to the two guys. I hate Farmville." ?

Ok.
 
Also, what is a "real" gamer anyway?  If they're playing a game and enjoying it, they don't need some crap label saying they're a "real" or "fake" gamer, just let people enjoy their game.  And you can block the invites/game if a friend or family member keeps sending you invites to games anyway.  It only takes a few seconds out of your day and that's it.

Yo dude bro im a real gamer!

If you are really getting pissed off because they are playing a game you don't like you got some serious issues. Don't like it? Don't watch it, it's as simple as that.

Edit: just in case you didn't get the sarcasm, I hate the word gamer and "real gamer" even more.

You know, as Ryan said, it is the replacement for soap operas, so of course it is going to be stupid, with a huge carrot dangeling in front of people's heads all the time, never to be caught. Seen as an outsider it's the most boring thing in the world since all you do is click and click some more but that's probably what the housewives are looking for.

I hope I never become a real gamer. Every time I hear someone address themselves as such they're usually in the middle of making themselves look like an ass.

Yeah, from what I can tell there's almost no games that real gamers get to play.

As opposed to the vastly more complex FPS shooter mechanic of "use gun on man"? Every game can to some degree be summed up as clicking a bunch of buttons.

Duder, what did you just say? You've started sentences but not ended them, you've just trailed off to no where and the last sentence is a bit obvious. How do you send an invite if you don't play? Herp derp derp. 
And, last time I checked the definition of game was something that was either competitive , played according to rules and/or decided by strength, skill, luck or another factor. And I'm sure Farmville fills out these requirements as you compete against others for bigger farms, you require the skill of micro-managing well 
Also, you can't swear in a thread title and it should be 'off' instead of 'of'.

I don't see how it's pissing anyone off, if anything it's mocking the game.

@Nictel: If "real gamers" are getting pissed off at something as stupid as 2 interns playing Farmville for a sudo-endurance run then you people have bigger problems. If you don't like it stop watching and let everyone else enjoy Giantbomb's stupid antics.

It's really bad, I kind of want to play. Resource management scratches an itch that I don't get from the games I buy... I want to stay away though.

@AlisterCat: I felt the same way yesterday. I started playing it and will probably stop once this is all over. That doesn't seem like too bad of an idea. Although I run the risk of getting addicted to it....oh shit.

To be honest, i don't see why it's that bad. It's not unlike any other flash game. I think a lot of hate this game is getting is because of Zynga/Facebook, but hey, maybe I'm wrong, maybe it truly is the most awful game in existence.

@Grissefar: @Vodun: Please knock it off, both of you. There's no need for this petty bickering to continue any further.

Anyways, as for Farmville, I'm almost tempted to nuke my Facebook account by playing it and sharing EVERYTHING to my wall or whatever, but that would entail actually putting time into a Zynga game. I'm pretty sure that in itself is not a great idea.

Still tempting, though.
