Five Reasons Not to Play FarmVille

Five reasons not to play farmville.

1. Farmville is based on real world money which i think is just stupid. Yes you can get coins but farm cash is extremely hard to get and you have to spend real world money to get lots of it. You need farm cash often for things like tractors etc.

2. The idea of having animals and trees is just stupid. Animals give you barely any coins and take a long time to re-spawn. And what the heck? Collect down feathers from ducks, angelic hair from rabbits and truffles from pigs???

3. The buildings and decorations are completely pointless. They have no use other then experience. If I were Farmville i would make the cottages earn you 15% more experience for farming or windmills to increase your guys speed etc. But they just stand there and do nothing

4. It has no plot-line, the only point is to level and the only achievements you can get is better seeds and it is not even fun to plant or collect your crops, it’s just time consuming and boring

5. It gets pointless. Yes, at first you get sucked in, wanting to get all the ribbons, all the trees and the animals and wanting to plant different crops, get buildings and beat your Friends. But finally when you do get all of this, which is in about a month if you try, the game stops having any point. You start thinking, great il have 10 million coins, and what will i do with those, buy 100 cottages and then what? There are no inter games in Farmville and nothing to do except for level and soon that becomes boring.

So Don’t Waste a month of your life sitting for hours waiting for your crops to grow just because your freinds are doing it. Quit it and insated write on Triond.com to get enough money to buy a good game like COD4!

    thats what i am doing at the moment growing and buying.I find most of the games like mafia, the zoo, farmville they are all trying to get you to buy credits which does get my back up.Its all to get money off you, but unlucky for them i dont have any, lol.

    So you’re fed up with the game? Yes I think there is a lot more in the mafia. I’m just learning how to play that. Doesn’t make no sense either.

    Yeah, what is so fun about playing a game that’s about farming!

    Ive tried farmville but when I learned that it involves Paypal that can actually get your real money, I stop playing. Let’s just spend our time wisely.

    Some things mentioned in why not to play Farmville are true. It is hard to earn farm cash… There really is no beauty in the final product except coins. Coins do not get you everything. Farm cash is specdific to certain market items. Items that probably for most are more desirable. It does become redundant and even boring at times. It may seem pointless, but this is only one way to think of it.
    Another view ;It\\\’s like a real life neighborhood with an association, the farmer becomes encouraged to keep their farm current. Meaning harvesting on time.. plowing, collecting from the animals. taking care of them. A sense of responsibility is certainly welcoming and can be valued. That is positive. My neighbors better keep their farms nice or I\\\\\\\’m switching neighbors. Managing the coins and farm cash also is of value for many in that a plan as to how one will afford what they want from the market demands the coins to plow to seed and also demands the farmer to return to their far timely to harvest. Once the coinage amount needed is earned, it is then fun to go to the market make your purchase and even rearrange your farm. On farmville neighbors take care of neighbors. They send daily gifts and post their awards to share a bonus witrh one another. Special requests are made from neighbor to neighbor as to what free gift the really want or can use. Neighbors by visiting their neighbors farms can see what their neighbor is in need for and or will profit from the most. This is all positive and really is encouraging to what it is to be a neighbor. A real life lesson that can be received simply from just playing on this Farmville application and the interaction being in a sense, pure. Stop knocking it, just because it is not a worldly preference of very many today. A farm??? What\\\’s that??? Shoot, nevermind, I need some gel for my hair. Goin and gettin me a big mac and a case of beer. Football is on tonite, I only wish I can be one of them. Seriously, this is a clean interaction thats probably why thias group does not support it and in fact Hates it. Thats insane. Sorry, cant burn down my farm.

    If u don’t like this game, don’t do that, but that’s no reason for make this kind of things, r u winnin’ something? r u the competition? i’m goona give all u five anti-reasons for this forum.

    1. Win fv cash is so easy, i’ve more than 15.000 and only have been in there for a month (and i’m not part of the Synga stuff), i’m level 36 and i’ve so much to do, if u like it, always gonna find something to do, 4 example, spend ur time with this big game, IS JUST THAT… A GAME, like Mario Bros, in which u rescue the princess the gam finish, u can go in but u did it all!!!

    2. Have some animals and trees is something different that most games in fb where u cant see this kind of animation and all the time the stuff r changing prices and articles, surprising the users.

    3. FV is a decorating tool 2, if u wanna decorate a house or use it u can go to other Zynga aplicattion like YoVille where u can so interact with other people.

    4. The finally of all the gams is to make grow up ur level or win something, and so u can make team work with people u don’t know in all the wolrd to make ur farm bigger an finally the biggest.

    5. Like all the games in the world, in any moment of ur life u gonna find it boring, but taht’s the work of the designers of games online, change and surprise the users, what’s Zynga stuff do all the time.

    Guess what? FV has 52.827.814 active users monthly, so much people canĀ“t be wrong. Think it twice!!! try it and change ur kind of see the life, enjoy all this li’l things that FaceBook offer 2 u!!!

    Thanks!

    Most Facebook games are boring. Play an RTS instead like Command and Conquer..

    Lol I never played the game, but from the way you’re describing it it sounds lame and gay to an extreme degree. wtf why would any st8 guy with a life sit there planting crops and buying cows?? Makes WoW look like a game for badass winners at life, and that IS saying something.

    Also paying real money for money on that game sounds retarded too, because I guess if you don’t, you won’t cut it or be able to compete with the best. That concept fails too hard for words. (From a player aspect, not for the company that created this game!)

    Deborah: You get farmville cash by getting the f*** off the internet. WTF are you even doing here? Is this a joke?

  19. Posted February 28, 2010 at 12:32 am

    Im sick and tired in waiting crops to virtually grow, why not plant REAL trees?

    see, most people think, those games are made so they can make money off of the virtual goods they offer people online.. but thats not true. Their main purpose is to access people’s personal information (ie. email addresses, interests…etc), which is why most of these games are offered for free. That kind of info is way more important to them than the buck or two they make off of each of you.

    Problem with FarmVille is that it’s not even fun. Its only point is to make money for the publisher and get you to rope other people into making them money too. It’s a scam designed as a game. Quite brilliant actually.

    My time with Farmville didn’t last long.I see it as pointless and a waste of important time I can spend doing something else such as spending time working on my business,spending time with family,spending time with my REAL horse.

    At time people will become upset when you don’t play anymore but that’s their problem.I don’t know what I can do with 100 cyber houses anyway.

    Information gathered from an individual user can be sold. Does Zynga state that they will not sell your information to:

    1 Credit Card Companies
    2 Bill Collector Databases
    2 Public Campaigns
    3 Non-Profit Organizations (For Donation purposes)

    Any personal information is valuable to the database builder as it can be sold and therefore is income generating. This is a dangerous process and can lead to identity theft.
    Think twice before giving your information to any database. If this is your practice, check your credit report often.

    In the time people waste playing Farmville,,they could acquire a real farm and produce food for real people and make mega real bucks.Think of all the energy going to waste playing a game which never challenges the intellect,you never win a real prize,you could be playing the game in 2035 and still not have a spread as large as your neighbor,you could have real farm animals.Life is precious and way too important to waste on a stupid mind numbing game.
