Hay Day Addiction


It all started last week.  I was having some nostalgia for my old friend Farmville.  I had deleted it all out of my facebook account probably years ago, but I was curious to see how my old virtual farm was holding up.  I figured all my crops would be dead, and every animal would need feeding, but when I arrived, I couldn't even find a farm.  It was only a bunch of charts with various point levels and such.  I didn't know what to do, so I went in search of a farming game alternative.

Well, I found Hay Day, and got instantly re-addicted, I am sad to admit.  I am constantly checking my phone for updates.  My crops need harvesting, or my sheep need shearing.  Aaron will send me a text during the day asking how my day is going, and I respond with things such as 'I am out of chicken feed!'  or  'My barn is full AGAIN?!'. 

I am certain that there are some subliminal messages, or extreme brain psychology at work in these games.  They hook you, and never let go!  They even used trickery to get me to spend $4.99 on diamonds which can help my buy virtual farming supplies.  Because I don't have enough to do or buy...

Moral of the story, this is why I have been absent from blogging as much, and not returning emails in timely manners.  Because I am working on my farm like some sort of crack head.  #insane.

Does anyone else play this game?  Or have other game addictions?  I hear candy crush is brutal, I am too scared to even try that one!

I finally gave in to candy crush when I lost my job and had too much free time. Whoops.

I would be more likely to play Candy Crush if it involved real candy :)

Haha, oh no! I'm hooked on Candy Crush and Farm Hero. Those dang FB games get me every time. In fact, the only reason I am reading blogs at the moment is because I'm waiting for my lives to regenerate. lol

Those games are so addicting. One year my brother and I got my mom so addicted to Farmville that after a few months, she broke the mouse on her laptop from clicking so much!

Oh, and I am currently addicted to Tiny Village. It sounds similar to HayDay.
