Once upon a time, I discovered a cute little game on my cell phone called Angry Birds. I came to really like it. I liked it a lot. I played it over and over until I had three stars on all of the levels. I was tickled when Angry Bird Seasons came out with a lot more levels. I was overjoyed when Angry Birds Rio came out (and still think it’s the best of the flock) and played it until I had three stars on all levels. I tried my hands at Angry Birds space and didn’t like it so much. Then I took an Angry Birds break.
Cut to a few years later and I recently tried to play Angry Birds and Angry Birds Rio again. But I couldn’t get much past three levels. It’s not that I couldn’t pass them – that was no problem. It was that I didn’t want to go any farther than that. As you can probably tell on this blog, I really enjoy older games that I once loved. I have no problem going back and playing all of my old favorites. So why don’t I like Angry Birds anymore?
It really doesn’t make a lot of sense to me. The game hasn’t changed at all. It’s still cute and simple. Maybe I over played it back then. I’m not sure, but the desire to keep playing is simply gone. Do you have any games like this?
