A.J. Patrick Liszkiewicz:

Again: if FarmVille is laborious to play and aesthetically boring, why are so many people playing it? The answer is disarmingly simple: people are playing FarmVille because people are playing FarmVille.

Update: Says DF reader James Murray via email, FarmVille is like a “Ponzi scheme of attention.”
