    I assume it would be very similar in most other countries too

    According to UN data there are 7.5 sheep for every New Zealand resident, over twice the number of sheep per human as Australia (3.3) and they have far more sheep per capita than any other country but New Zealand. The US has one sheep for every 50 people.

    As interesting and humorous as that may be, I think milkman was referring to the females playing facebook games.

    No I was in fact talking about the amount of sheep that play video games, and how that may have skewed Metis' results.

    Nope, nr40 4v4s. The half sheep is actually the best because his prostheses make it easier to use a mouse.

     

    I'm still not sure why Microsoft chose the graphics style they did. The graphics are similar to what you'd expect for a game targeted at 8 year olds (my best memory of them is the ridiculous animation for the cows) But the game itself is more targeted to a general social gaming audience. I get the cartoon graphics, kind of (trying to appeal to more casual gamers who don't want lots of blood in the gamne) but the whimsical style seems misplaced.

    And at people saying RE should buy the rights for the AoE series, what games have they produced that makes us think they'd be a good studio for it? Sure, they have several people from Ensemble, but the games RE itself has produced (AOE:O, OMD) show they're moving in a different direction.

    Gotta take into account facebook games that every damn girl in my country plays 24/7

    exactly. that kind of stuff shouldn't be counted and probably was, which is why the stats are inaccurate for real games like aoe.

    What is your definition of a "real" game? My cat loves to play "knock a pen off the counter then skid it around the kitchen floor for an hour until it slides under the stove, repeat" -- to her, that's a real game.

    when talking about PC games i'd say non-browser games. playing farmville because you're bored on facebook doesn't make you a gamer. of course this is all subjective, but i think most gamers will agree.

    Yer personally if someone said they were a gamer I wouldn't consider farmville or what not to be "video" gaming.

    I've barely heard of Farmville but reading about it just now I find that there were two murders committed because people got so obsessed with it.

    I call false advertisement on that one. Farmville, runescape, etc. are for people who suck at real video games.

    It's basically a farming tycoon game that takes place in Real Time on facebook.

    I dislike Dutch the most cuz the envoy and flute sound like tards and the explorer yelling is so annoying when you tell him to attack.
