WOW! this is alot more negative that I expected. I was only being like 2% serious by the way. I could really care less I am mostly tying to explore the differences in perception on what a video game is.
My topics are meant to promote general discussion I use examples from my life to give them weight. THIS TOPIC ISN'T ACTUALLY ABOUT ME ITS ABOUT EVERYONE.
Catchy title huh?
Anyway I have noticed a trend with my girlfriend recently. She likes video games and goes nuts for games like Phoenix Wright and I've gotten her slightly hooked on GT5 but in my opinion she often wastes her time on really shitty farmville type games on Android. Ive tried to explain her that these things are not games but a series of timers. I mean literally one of the games she plays is a chef game and all you do is choose what food you want to prepare, it could take anywhere from 5 min to 24 hours, its actually a timer counting down. TO WHAT? To getting to start another timer.
I should probably just let it go, but its still annoying. At least she isn't paying for any of these "games".
