Stack 'Em High


Stack 'Em from Pogo Games is evil and must be destroyed.

I've never understood computer or video games or the people who play them. Colors flash, you react, sounds emit. And NOTHING HAPPENS. Who cares? Why would anyone spend more than a minute on such silliness?

Because those games are designed to suck your soul with their dirty little pixels, that's why. 

Every time you hear the squak and see "You Lose," the only thing you can think is, "One more time." I one-more-timed myself til 2:30 in the freaking morning Thursday.

Me flat-out wasting time is weird. It's just not something I do. I generally go pretty heavy on the create when I recreate. But. . . .

After way-too-many hours of doing the neutron dance with Stack 'Em Wednesday night, I started work on Thursday. Had trouble typing. All those letters hanging in space without anything supporting them just looked wrong. Wrong, I tell you. And I had the strangest sensation of hurry, hurry, hurry. (Pretty sure that feeling is the genesis of road rage.)

Late last night I turned on the tv before falling into bed. Every scene was filled with shapes begging to be stacked. No idea what the show was about, but did you see those pink squares?  I could stack the hell out of those babies.

Um. Yeah.  Stack 'Em is a horrible, brain sucking, total waste of time and must be removed from the planet. But wait. Let me play one more game first. Just one. Pinky swear.

Mmm.

Take care, my friend. Stack em' today, maybe, but it's just a short slippery slope to...

Guitar Hero.

So I want to know how you came to be playing this game in the first place. . . .

I just love knowing I'm not the only one that does things like this!

I was addicted to Space Invaders when I was a teenager, then Ms. PacMan, never Mr.

Never heard of stack em, and I'm not looking into it. Thanks for the warning.
