Updated Editor’s Note 11/7/2017 – In an effort to further commit to our editorial vision of quality content about nothing but games or the industry, we are leaving this note here to let you know that this article does not meet the standards of that vision as it exists today. This article may be poorly written, or it may be well-written but with charged political content, which we have stepped away from. It’s not the ideas we have a problem with, as we do not discourage any viewpoint, we are just moving away from this sort of content. This article no longer represents TechRaptor’s editorial vision today and into the future. You can read more about why we are doing this here.
IMO – In My Opinion – is where the Raptors get to sound off about things on their mind. Saw something was awesome? Something on their nerves? Think some other Raptor was wrong? Time to spout off their mouth, just as long as it is In My Opinion…
Have you ever played the crack that is Farmville? Me neither. I kept seeing all the annoying things on my Facebook about sending water or seeds. I didn’t want to do that crap! Who needs virtual water? Why am I being bothered by this stuff? Ugh. Blocked. Done. Then my fiancee found it and started to play. I told her I wasn’t playing it, but she needed seeds. Still not playing it. “OK, well then just give me your Facebook password and I’ll just play it for you.” Enter World War 3 over a stupid password!
Now we’ve all played a FarmVille-like game where you collect a bunch of stuff, to make other stuff, that does other stuff. May not have been a farm. It could have been a space station, or some type of store. In some form we all liked playing it and like a big bright yellow scooter we were all embarrassed when it asked us to share the fun we are having with our friends…in public…to be ignored or made fun of.
It looks like Zynga listened to us and made the mobile version of FarmVille 2 have a special option. You don’t have to bother your friends at all. AT ALL. You can do everything on your own, and at your own pace. You can level up as fast or as slow as you’d like. Do you want to bug your friends into helping? Go ahead! But it won’t slow your game down. You can play all the resource collecting crack of a game and no one needs to know. Heck, you don’t even need to have an internet connection to play. But if you do, you can connect your game to all of your devices via cloud storage. It’s a great addition to the FarmVille series. Just don’t play it a lot, it will suck you right in. But, if you have a few minutes (read: hours) then play it. Just come up for air.
