6 Devious Ways Farmville Gets People Hooked

Cracked.com has an piece up titled 6 Devious Ways Farmville Gets People Hooked.

No, you cannot have that last one

Cracked.com is a humor site, an off-shoot of Cracked Magazine, a one-time competitor to MAD Magazine.

The article would probably be funnier if, as with their 5 Creepy Ways Video Games Are Trying To Get You Addicted piece, it wasn’t so close to the truth..

Instead, it is pretty much a light hearted recap of exactly how things work.

But it has pictures!

And we all like pictures, like the one above, which I stole from the piece.  So there.

    It is sad/scary to think that my ranting on the misuse of the term “microtransactions” was the best source they could find to link.

    And people still misuse the term by applying it to things purchased from the Blizzard Store.
