When I first saw @VinMcCarthy's Quick Question about mobile games I nearly laughed off of my chair. "I am a real video game-man", I exclaimed into the ether, "Mobile games are for young-men and babies!", I snorted. Then the memory hit me. It hit me hard. It was like I was eating a bag of potato chips and a piece of it accidentally went down my windpipe.
The truth is that I do, in fact, have a favorite mobile game. And it's Plants v. Zombies. There's something about planting sunflowers and pea-shooters (?) in order to defend your home from the zombie hoard. I found myself losing hours and hours into this game when I was still in college.
I would sit in class, in the hallways, in the lunch room, in my bedroom, and on the toilet, constantly trying to get the highest scores and beat the game. I don't know what it was about it that drew me in but I loved it and even now, I still come back to it every now and then. You know, for old times sake.
Thanks again, @VinMcCarthy for making me remember an (almost) regretful moment in my video game history.
