Hi my name is Chris and I’m addicted to a child’s game.
There, I’ve said it, it’s out there now. Some would argue this is just a game for children/the youth of today, I don’t know maybe it isn’t, but the thing that is true is that it’s not the type of game I would normally play for more that a few minutes, maybe a few hours at most.
I’m not a strategy game type of person, I’ve never been into them but then this little game had to come along and be so damn addictive.
Don’t get me wrong, I love a good little phone game addiction, I have been known to dabble in Candy Crush and other such games that I have not only moved on from but to be honest forgot their names too. Like the ones where you have to make words in a boggle type game, or you have to move blocks to free the red block from the game square. They were all normal, healthy, addictions to have but this one I’m ashamed of.
I played the game for weeks and weeks without joining a “task force” where you attack as a team with other people around the world who are also addicted to this silly little game. I just wanted to see what it was all about, surely it couldn’t do too much harm to join a task force…
But here I am months later and starting to wonder if the addiction would have passed had I not teamed up with these others as I now have a bigger problem, I don’t want to let them down. Yep, now I’m playing as I need to collect enough “intel” on my own so we then can choose a good operation to go on and attack together.
So now like the Facebook addiction of the past I am checking this game multiple times a day, collecting not only intel but other building resources so I can be a stronger attacker and defend against all those other players that want to attack my home base.
Maybe this post will be the beginning of a cleansing to happen to me, maybe this is the beginning of the end, the embarrassment of admitting this online, or maybe it’ll fuel it somehow. Meh whatever.
