    Haha, I knew it!

    Thanks Farmville, for keeping the wife occupied while I'm playing my RPGs, War for Cybertron, and farting around on TFW. :lol

    But... but... It makes such a great time killer when I don't have anything else to do.

    Like right now in the hotel room, or during rides to a jobsite, or when it's raining outside...

    Yeah, that's how it starts. A couple minutes here, an hour there when you have nothing better to do. Next thing you know you're scheduling your life around when your crops will come up, you're bartering away cash for farmville dollars and your social life will be nonexistant because you just need that little more to get that fucking barn built.

    GET OUT NOW.

    Ugh.. I used to play Farmville, Mafia, Mobsters 2, Restaurant City, Cafe World, Nitrous Racing, Barn Buddy, Happy Aquarium, etc and got overwhelmed and burnt out. So now I only play 1 game and that is enough for me. Don't get sucked into those FB game or you'll never see the outside world.

    I'm not going to fall for buying fake cash with real cash, and I schedule crops around real life, not the other way around.

    Yeah, that's what my wife said too.

    There's still hope for you, man. You're still able to look at other sites before running back for a harvest. Take this moment, this opportunity to break from the cocaine internet monkey that is farmville. Don't let it take you, you're better than it man!!!!

    You? No. What hope does this site have for more thoughtful members if you've been seduced?

    This is quite topical for me. My girlfriend and her new roommate spend an obscene about of time on Farmville. I had no idea that you had to harvest your crops at a specific time until harvest time interfered with something we were doing in real life. She ditched me so she could harvest her corn or whatever so wouldn't die. I suppose it could be worse, she doesn't seem to be totally addicted to it yet, but time will tell.

    Haha. I never got addicted to Farmville, but I played Petville and Happy Aquarium all the damn time. I finally burned out on both of them, haven't touched either game in fear of becoming readdicted. Lol.

    first it was Farmville, then Restaurant City, then Mafia Wars, then Yoville, then Fishville, then Petville, then Frontierville, and now Family Fued.

    Of all the games i've tried, i still do Farmville, Mafia Wars, Frontierville, and Family Fued. the perfect time killer at work.
