Facebook games

I’ve had it with Facebook games. If your playing Frontier Town, Farm Ville, Zombie Lane, Cafe World, City Ville etc.  Don’t you realize your playing the same thing over and over again I did and quickly I might add.  You nor I were/are not investing our time in a type of game that fosters innovation and growth of gaming as a medium. Instead your telling developers it’s OK to release a shell of a game and that you like micro transactions. Your saying I enjoy mechanics that limit the quality and time I get with My game and I’m willing to pay them with My money for content that should be in the game to begin with! This way of thinking is spreading dangerously though out the games industry and it‘s not a good thing.
But you tell me this game is FREE and I don’t spend money on micro transactions. All I can say Is this How much of your time has gone into playing this game and what have you really gotten back for the time you have lost? If I had to guess I say the only thing you’ve truly gotten back or learned from you Facebook game is this: Get all your friends to play, always come back, trade with your buddy to keep them in the game, send in game status updates to remind your friends of the game and most importantly left click never EVER right click and then repeat.
If you truly enjoy this mindless recreation I can let it go but for the love of god Go! Please go and spend five or twenty bucks on an Indy game or a AAA Title I promise you’ll get more enjoyment and experiences out of it.
