My True Love, My Addiction

I think you’ve become relatively familiar with me by now. I like chicken wings and would thus begin with the toes, were I to be zombified. You know what my dog looks like. I like animals better than humans. With all this knowledge, perhaps you’ve become comfortable with me. So, I think now is the appropriate time to let you know that I have an addiction.

I indulge in my addiction several times daily. I think about it, I dream about it, I do it between writing paragraphs to my thesis. I think you and I both know what I’m talking about: Plants Vs. Zombies.

Yes, I am an avid player of the defense and puzzle game created by PopCap Games. In fact, I have paid not once, but twice for Plants Vs. Zombies and would gladly pay for it again. Yes, I am aware that with the licensing you get 5 downloads of the game, but after I lost my laptop to a very recent house fire, I realized I had misplaced the email with my licensing information. And so, I purchased the game all over again, plunking down another $20.

If you don’t know anything about Plants Vs. Zombies, I highly recommend visiting PopCap Games and trying the game for free online. All you’ll be able to get through is the first level and you will be unable to access the other levels, mini games, or puzzle levels, among other features. However, you’ll become quickly addicted as you try to defend your house from zombies using the plants you are provided with. The plants are really cute and, strangely enough, the zombies are quite adorable themselves. Once you’ve mastered the game to a certain point, you can perform cool tricks, like make all the zombies have mustaches or wear weird 80s-type sunglasses. You can even create a “Zombitar” that leads the zombie armies into battle.

The game has both PC and Mac versions and is appropriate for all ages, as long as all ages can wrap their heads around the idea of battling the undead with rows of shooting, exploding, blocking, and smashing plants. It’s great for those who love to strategize and solve puzzles. I love this game. I don’t know why, it’s not especially difficult, and I am not one for lots of games, but I really, truly love this game.

And I’m going to go play it now.
