My Way Late Angry Birds Rant


I meant to write this entry about 18 months ago, but I forgot.  I've got something to say about Angry Birds...

I don't get it.  Angry Birds has been absolutely everywhere since 2009, with several people I know and love claiming addiction to the game.  My kids, for example, love Angry Birds.  At least they did.

I tried Angry Birds, because it seemed to be the most downloaded game everywhere I turned.  And it was everywhere: iPad, iPhone, Android, WebOS, Chrome, etc.  Of course I tried it, and I'm betting you did as well.


You probably loved it, and played it over and over and over again. I played it twice and bailed due to boredom.  I haven't been tempted to go back.  I just didn't like it.

But it's everywhere. During Halloween, I saw kids dressed as Angry Birds and I saw pumpkins carved as Angry Birds.  I'll bet they show up at the Santa Claus Parade in a couple of weeks.

I don't get it.
