Haha, I don't have a smartphone, so I haven't played it. But considering how I've been with Pokemon Shuffle and Pokemon Rumble (free downloadable games for the 3DS) I'm guessing I would probably be addicted if I did...(Then again, I am a born houseplant, and I'm not even sure the prospect of getting more pokemon could change that.) But, when the game was still in the testing stages, someone approached me while I was on my break at work and asked me if I played it. (Because you get stuff by interacting with other people.) I think she must have seen my pokemon wallet. XD!
It's been a little while since I've played any games besides Pokemon, but back in the day one of my favorite games was the original Sims (I mostly played it with my sister, and we downloaded all kinds of custom-made skins, mostly anime, like Yugioh characters and such.) But yeah, Sims 3 is amazing, my sister got that one one year, and I made her do things like create Artemis Fowl, Butler, and Holly Short characters. xD!! It's amazing just how much control you have over the appearance of the sims characters is Sims 3...as an artist, it makes you realize just how much variation there can be in face structure, and how subtle changes affect how the character comes across.)
It's weird to think all the computer games I really played a lot of are all old now...(Command and Conquer Generals, which taught me words like 'AK-47,' 'Comanche' and 'Chinook,' and all the Sims series, including Sim Safari, a little Sim City, and I think there was one called Sim Park. My favorite though was one I think I got for Christmas one year, Chaos Island, which was a game based on the second Jurassic Park, Lost World. I like dinosaur games...)
My dad, sister and I are also really into the Nancy Drew games, lol. (Although now my sister is away at college most of the time, so my dad and I have been having to play them on our own.) Like the Nancy Drew series, you're given a mystery, and you explore the world of the story, gathering clues to try to figure out what's going on, and who the perpetrator of whatever the crime was. (And usually when you find out who it is, they try to kill you at the end. x3) Unfortunately my dad's computer went down, so it looks like we'll have to reply the last one we've been working on...
I know what you're saying about games where you get to build things. (I'm also a sucker for games where you collect things.) Although, mainly I think I just like games that don't take a lot of work. xD! (I like games where you can save often, so you can stop whenever you need to and don't necessarily have to commit a lot of time at once, and games that are forgiving in that if you make a mistake, you always get a second chance [without extreme penalties, like having to play the entire level over]. If I'm going to play a video game, I want to relax, not be more frustrated... xD)
“After all, absolutely no one can help but suspect a criminal, liar, and manipulator of committing crimes, lying, and manipulating. And of course, no one is more aware of that simple fact than Artemis Fowl.”
Opal sets into motion her most diabolical scheme yet, to frame Artemis and turn his closest friends against him. Only this time she has a new calculating partner who knows Artemis better than he knows himself.
