Flappy Bird and Trends

You got it, I’m talking about this.

So it seems that even though the game has been pulled down from the App Store a few weeks ago, carbon copies/tributes of it are appearing everywhere. Examples like…

And more.

Honestly, I’m not against playing games or anything, but it’s been blown out of proportion. Yes, it’s fun though frustrating. I’ve heard and read stories where people who feel/really do throw their phones at the wall or something due to it being too annoyingly frustrating.

Now, this is what I don’t get.

Why do you throw your phone/feel like breaking it because of a game?

Seriously?

Do you know how much your phone costs? Ignoring whatever price range, a phone is still a phone. Flappy Bird, on the other hand, it’s just a game. A free one. Albeit, one that will frustrate you to no end – but still. You don’t have to wreck your phone just because of a game.

Besides that, people often spend hours on the game – neglecting their work, their responsibilities and such. And then comes complaints about not having enough time to do what they have to do.

Now, I’m not saying that you can’t indulge, nor that you don’t have the right to.

Just don’t go overboard.

The time you spend on a game can be used much more productively. Like finishing up your work, helping your mother around the house, developing stronger bonds with your friends/partners/family, do some community service or charity work and the like.

You might think I’m a Flappy Bird hater or something, but I’m not. I just don’t see the point of raging about the game and/or playing it endlessly. Sure, I play it during my leisure, but I don’t go overboard with it, nor do I take it to extremes until I neglect my priorities and responsibilities. At most, I spend about 5 minutes to 1 hour on the game. That’s it.

Basic Knick-knacks and General Things

Hey! =) So this place is just gonna be a place for me to share and/or express myself, so yeah..They’ll range from random posts, opinions, thoughts to stories and stuff. From time to time I might discuss or share my views on things like music, food and more.

For this first post I won’t go in-depth about anything – but rather, I will say that I will do my best to abide by the following:

  1. Be open-minded
  2. Be tactful
  3. Be honest

Because, quite frankly, I’ve been on the receiving side of all three’s opposite (read: shallow-mindedness, rudeness and lies that most of the time led to me being betrayed) and they haven’t been pleasant experiences to say the least. Still, such is life. Good things, bad things, they all happen. We all just have to accept it as it is and pick up the pieces.

I’ll try to post regularly, to keep the momentum going so to speak.

Signing off for now.
