Not Even FarmVille Hits The Lowest Common Denominator

One of the common cries of the hard core when complaining about changes to a game to make it “easier” or “more accessible” is that the company in question is attempting to appeal to the lowest common denominator.

The next time you see a player making that complaint, remember that somewhere out there somebody felt the need to write the book FarmVille for Dummies.

Really, the lowest common denominator is a lot lower than you and I can probably imagine.

    I don’t know if you can separate this book from sarcasm. Like the phrase “interpretive dance,” it just comes pre-loaded with mockery.

    But apparently there is a niche market out there of people smart enough to read and who consider buying books a viable learning methodology, yet who cannot figure out FarmVille.
