TECHNOLOGY: Marketland is addictive.

Jan 30, 2013

        It was last year when I started finding a game to play in the internet. I've been at home almost everyday and life was getting boring.

        Through my search in Facebook for a game, I found this game called Marketland and since I'm a marketer, I got interested. I knew it would be like Farmville, Cafe World or those sorts of games that became popular before (which I grew tired playing way back). But I still the game anyway and guess what level I am now?

        Yes! I'm already on level 33 and my coins have reached 4M. I'm that addict already. You know what, I actually take note of the time of my shipments and the time of their arrivals so that I don't waste any stocks. I even go online during my free-time (since I've been very busy lately) just to check if my groceries or other items still has stock.

        I don't think it's the game that got me addicted. What I mean is, it's no different from the ones I used to play before in Facebook too. Probably, the main reason I enjoy and really play this game is because my mom and I has this frustration in putting up a retail store of our own. And seeing my store virtually makes me feel somewhat successful. Hehe.

        Playing this game isn't just for entertainment anymore. It teaches me to be responsible.
