Word of caution


Comments (8) | Views (511)

CautionThere is something I need to warn you about, especially if you have thought about trying the multiplayer game I posted a couple of days ago called iSketch... it is very addictive. Drop that mouse and put your hands at your sides. Now step away from the computer. Do it now before it's too late.

Since I stumbled upon iSketch a couple of days ago, I have not been able to stop playing. I find myself jumping online just to play “a quick game or two” in between other things I should be doing. Problem is, one game turns into three or four… eight… ten… to the point where I lose count, and I lose track of time. I keep saying “just one more” but the truth is, it never ends. I'm addicted to iSketch after only two days playing.

I even believe there is a need for a support group for people who play this game, as I have seen many of the same people, time and time again, playing too. One kind woman that I see playing quite often—I'll call her Adrienne—even suggested that I warn others of how addictive the game is. Adrienne told me that while she also feels addicted to the game, she enjoys the social aspect of the game as well. iSketch includes a chat window within the game where ‘high fives', hugs and other greetings are exchanged as friends enter and leave the rooms. Conversations run concurrent with the game, connections are established, friendships are formed. And there are many others, like Adrienne, who are both kind and addicted, and play and chat together all day/night long.

So, consider yourself warned.

Ah, to be addicted to a game... If only I had the time for that now! I had so much I wanted to do this summer that I just have not been able to do, let alone playing all of the video games I have. The last game I was really addicted to was back in the PS1's reign of the kingdom with Square's unbelievable masterpieces. I simply haven't had the time anymore due to school.

Regardless, with the way you and I are into games sharing an office might be a blow to our productivity next year... :-)

Have you ever played a game called Gold Miner? Very addictive single player experience.

Thanks, Carlo, for the link. It's a good game to highlight here.

Ted - there are always good people in the Expert US room, that's where I usually hang out when I play. It also would be fun to get a bunch of people from RIT to play at school sometime. =)
