Video Games Gone Mobile

Gone are the simple days of playing Tetris and Solitaire on your computer or phone. Hell, even Candy Crush appears to be reserved only for old people or those reduced to MetroPCS. In recent years, the technology of gaming apps has caught up with actual video games and consoles.

Not being particularly into anything involving avatars and violence, I personally miss the days of Oregon Tail when people died of dysentery, not sniper shots. But I’m also a freak’in pussy that probably deserves MetroPCS.

Anyway, if you ARE super into video games, you may be interested to know what the best mobile games of 2018 are.

Here are the results.

At The End Of The Line

People are OBSESSED with the idea of the world coming to an end. I’m only 34, but there are at least 12 instances I can remember in which a significant subgroup of people had collectively decided the end was near.

The first wave of hysteria I can remember was the turn of the 20th century, when everyone predicted Y2K would leave society in shambles. When that didn’t happen, everyone then seemed to focus their attention on the Mayan calendar, believing THAT was a predetermination of the end of times. Shockingly, everyone left unscathed on Jan 1, 2012.

Since then, I have heard of COUNTLESS hair-brain theories about Aliens, asteroids, and the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

But this is nothing new. People have been guessing when the circle of life will end as far back as parietal drawings and pictographs on cave walls.

To be fair, I TOTALLY believe this world (or at least what we know as it today) will cease to exist. But it probably will be the result of some natural disaster or something we did to ourselves. I also don’t believe humans can predict when this will occur. We just need to wait it out and enjoy life while we can.

But if you spent your entire childhood living in fear of an apocalypse, it’s nearly impossible to “live in the moment.” And, when that apocalypse never occurs, it probably does some serious damage to your psyche and trust.

Paying The Price

In America, taking an ambulance can mean financial ruin, making it so very sick people who actually NEED the service often refuse it. In other countries the experience is quite different. See for yourself.
