Who here is addicted to farmville? I am just loving the free fuel from this past week and christmas. Anybody here who actually pays real money to buy more farmville coins or cash? I have not because I don't see a rush into getting up to higher levels. I am really waiting for the upgrade to a bigger size to stop being coming soon and being here already. Probably by that time I will have enough money and be at a high enough level to get it. Anybody here totally against farmville? I do here that Zanga stole the idea from somebody else. FarmTown maybe, but I don't really know.

hi there mlhuff, I really haven't spent much time on facebook. Keep meaning to but being the procrastinator that I am well, you know how it goes. I have friends that are on there and they keep trying to get me to give it a try. They say it is absolutely addicting. One of these days, I will check it out. Do you really earn free gas for real? I would not pay money to play any game on facebook or anywhere on the internet.

I think it is this week only or possibly just ended. It was free farmville gas. Gas to fuel your plows on your farm. If you are a procrastinator farmville may not be right for you. You crops may die before you can get back.

My 11 year-old nephew is sooooo..crazy about farmville. No matter where he is, his mom (my sister) reminds me to open his farm,then harvest some plants he was planting. Actually,the game is fun, but i agree with someone who says that it is such a waste of time..

The game does take a lot of commitment. If you don't have that you can't get very far in levels. Then you will probably give up and stop playing it. I agree it is a waste of time. But it is hard to stop playing it.

I dont really like farmville because it seems boring for me im not playing games that for kids only.I can say that its a kiddy game because of how the game to be played and its so easy you just have to plot and plant some plants then you wait for days or even just hour to harvest .Theres no real fighting and the audio is clearly thats for kids.

It is a mindless easy game. But a lot of adult people I work with are totally obsessed with it.

My youngest brother introduced me to the games less than a week ago. I play Farmville, Farm Town, Fishville, Cafe World and Restaurant City. To say I'm addicted is like saying the sun is kind of bright. I mostly play Farm Town...I love harvesting and plowing for other players and seeing what their farms look like...my first day I made 11 coins, 2 days later I had over 200,000...I've been on there about 5 days and I'm a level 24. I also love the Cafe game b/c I can make really neat dishes though I do have make a note of when I have to go back to get food off the stove. Restaurant City is kind of fun...I like seeing how other ppl decorate their restaurant's and gathering coins is fun, the only drawback is that the workers have to be fed or rested or they quit working. Fishville is kind of fun but I don't know if I'll keep playing it. I absolutely love getting gifts and sending them so if anyone wants to be neighbors with me, just send me a private message or something and we'll set it up. Believe it or not, I have been playing EverQuest II for the last 2 years and these games are actually keeping me busy enough not to play it. As for paying for coins with real money...NO WAY!! I like the games but they are just games. There's no way I'd put really money in them to buy virtual stuff. Well, time to do housework and then back to the games.

I never played FarmTown. But if it's anything like FarmVille I just wouldn't have enough time. One is enough.

I play it here and there, and got many 'farmville' friends, so I used to get 20 gifts per day. Until I yelled at everyone to stop doing it.. lol. Right now my farm is just too big and I dont wanna get a tractor so I just brush/collect all the stuff from the animals and the trees. xD (I got a friend that reached level 40 in like... 2 weeks... _ )

I must admitted that I am really addicted to farmville, and not just farmville but facebook as a whole. I have lots of games that I have joined in and I think it would take me 4-5 hours to finish updating all the games that I have joined. But even though I am addicted with the games, I don't really spend money to buy some points or coins or whatever you call it to have higher levels. Even my friends here in our country, we do not purchase coins to have higher levels. We are just playing these stuffs for recreation purposes and rewinding. I don't think there would be people who would be wasting money just for that, especially now, we all know what kind of economy that we have. We are in crisis. We all need to save.

I agree. There are way better ways to spend you money. You know the important stuff like bills food.

I love farmville. My friend showed me it about 2 months ago and me, my husband, and my 9 yr old daughter all have one. I would of never let her have a facebook before that but hers is all private lol. Anyhow I would never pay real money for it. That to me just wouldn't be as much fun. Although I do wish I could by some of the things that cost the dollars, not the coins. They have some really big stuff I will probably never get but oh well. It's free fun anyhow.

Yes, free fun. That is the best kind of fun. :D . . . I would never pay in if there was no possibility of a return or even more.

The applications on facebook are addicting. What makes farmville worse is if you don't visit it so often things will die. Which means you have to keep checking it.

That is true. In the past I had become addicted to many zynga games. I no longer play them any more though because farmville was more time consuming I thought.

Hi there, I am addicted to farmville.I am now level 61. I started last year and I've been addicted into it.. It's really inspiring to plant and harvest in this application. Since I don't really have a green thumb I was able to experience how to manage a farm by myself.Like you I wish that farmville will soon upgrade their plots so I can be able to put some of my houses and plant some seeds, I am not working hard to get the mastery of planting and I got 10 seeds mastery. I am very happy using this application to facebook and I hope they will put a lot of new stuff from time to time.Well, I have farmtown before but I don't like the application. I loved farmville, its amazing and I always look forward on it.

I have enough to buy a villa. But if I do I will have to either get rid of a bunch of trees or plots which I don't really do. I got maybe about 8 or so mastery's already. I need more room.

I can say I am addicted to farmville and the rest of my other farm. I have to block some of the applications cos it is getting too much for me to keep up. I will not use real money to buy more farmville coins or cash. This is just a game for us to relax. I am also not in a hurry to level up. I like rearranging my farm from time to time. Each time I will take a photo of my farm, so that I can enjoy looking at it again. It gives a fresh look and to place all my gifts as much as possible. I don't know when I will get bored with Farmville......not just yet, hee hee....:)

I used to use Mafia Wars and the Pirates one. I just have don't have enough time in the day. I can't even remember the last time I have been on either of them. I know the last time on Mafia Wars it had been such a long time that I stopped earning money from my businesses.

I am not addicted to it but do go in the game to harvest lol. A lot of Zanga games are similar to the others brought out like Farmtown, Country Story etc. I have had to cut back on a lot of the games because they run in real time and a lot of the time I don't go in play the games. I was playing fishville and would forget to check on the fish after a certain amount of hours. I killed so many fish on that game that it is not funny.

I play farmville but I am not addicted. Maybe if harvesting, plowing and such were less time consuming I might play more often. I go on just to place my gifts (because you can only have 30 in your box) and then I'll harvest the trees and animals. I was truly addicted to farmtown though. I managed to build a whole retreat with mine. water falls and all. Cant do that with farmville and even if I figured out how to do so my patience have already wore thin with it. Zynga games are cute but not user friendly on facebook to me. I stopped playing cafe world also because of it being slow freezing up and such

I'm addicted! I enjoy playing farmville in my free time. It's pretty interesting game. Zanga games are one of the most original in this type of games. You can became maniac :) It's not that easy to reach higher levels and it becomes more and more difficult during the game. I don't thing it's wise to pay for cash or coins. It's a game, it's better earn the money without investing. It's more interesting.

I have played Farmville alot but have recently gotten bored of it, so currently i dont play at all. The concept looks very similar to FarmTown but yet the games are very differently in the core basis.
