My grandmother and Aunties believed in playing games to share time together with family, friends or strangers. Every time we get together, the cards would come out and if we wanted a change it would something with Dice.
Either way I learnt from experiencing some happy memories due to the games we shared.
Now there is Facebook games. I love Collaspe & Farmville the best and I have meet some really neat friends from my Farmville neighbours. Most are really happy people and we all wish each other well in our accomplishments or celebrations.
I went to a webinar the other day & listened to a point of view that surprised me. It was said that “people judge you by having facebook games all over your wall”.
And guess what! I went straight to my page and deleted the game applications.
Then I thought about why I play them, Why do I spend my time there etc etc etc.
I looked at all the happy & positive people I had as friends, I looked at my amazing children & their friends and I realised I only got to know them though playing games on facebook.
No matter what game I play, the team members of that application help each other to obtain goals.
We even spur each other on as a group. We like each other’s comments or status it goes on and on.
I like the vast age range I have as well, It provides constant stimulation for me.
I also get to have good relationships with my family where we play games and message each other at least weekly, it creates healthy bonding.
I remember travelling on a bus across the Australian bite and I pulled out a pack of cards to teach other passengers Skip-bo. Everyone I introduced to that game enjoyed themselves and attracted other people to play. So I meet more people and quickly passed away the Kilometres.
It was my grandmother taking her time to play with me and my mother for buying the countless games that I have to thank. As not only is it a tool to enjoy people’s company with, but something that creates long lasting pleasant memories.
So tell me, why would someone want to judge me simply because I play facebook games?
I'd be intested in your comment.
Keep playing those games!
