I have a mild obsession with mobile games. I have 5 to 10 that I play on a daily basis and I am constantly looking for more that I can sink my teeth into.
The problem with mobile games today is that almost every game requires me to pay in order to play it the way I want to. In fact, there an entire community of online gamers that feel the same way. No matter what it says in the description of a mobile game, it is not free. A game may be free to download and play but it allows - and insists - in-app purchases.
With all of the social networking sites (SNS) today, a lot of what we do is transferred from analogue to digital. I worry for my children; I want them to experience a bit of analogue before being sent into the unforgiving culture of digital.
