People who play video games understand the fundaments of fun. If the internet’s any indication, gamers have no problem tearing apart even the best produced games if they’ve got an element or two that derail the core enjoyment of the experience. That’s why the idea of playing a game like Farmville which is more about mindless repetition than anything of substance is so repulsive to people steeped in the hobby. If your partner’s got a virtual farm with enough crops to feed an imaginary army, there’s a good chance they don’t actually know what a good video game looks like.
