Farmville

See this cow? Imagine it were real, and you were actually watching the cow eat grass and chillax. That would be far more exciting and enriching than playing games like Farmville, in which you maintain a digital farm, milk cows, grow crops, take the wool from sheep, and other mundane tasks, just so you can sell the stuff, earn money, and get more cows to milk, crops to grow, etc. Here’s an idea: plant some actual crops in your actual yard or planter box, and make some actual food! Can’t recommend that you jump head first into opening up a dairy in your garage, but at least a tomato vine is a lot more used to you in real life than entire plantation is on Facebook.
