How addicted to this game are you?

Post by nicholas80 »

I don't know what it is about this game but it just ticks all the boxes for me and I really do enjoy playing a lot. I was wondering if other people feel the same.

I don't think anyone is going to beat my experience with this game, I actually got a disaplinary at work down to too much of my time playing factorio :roll:

Wow he actually got fired from his job that is awful, what I have started to do is when I start work (working from home because of the virus) I unplug my personal machine and move it into my sitting room to remove the temptation of having a quick go every so often. The thought of putting the machine back together gives me time to think of the consequence.

I do hope that Nilaus finds employment soon its a real bad time to be looking for work.

I am guessing most people on here work as programmers because of the subject matter, I think the game appeals to programmers because its the drive to get to the perfectly efficient system.

Many people are fired everyday, and not all of them are because of a Factorio addiction. The way you wrote this implies it was the case for Nilaus. Are you sure you're that much informed ?

No, it doesn't imply it. You interpret it into my writing.

"Most"? I doubt it. I might be biased as a non-programmer though.
Sarcasm and insults are generally neither helpful nor appreciated. :D

I found steinio's comment quite amusing, because I was watching Nilaus' "This Planet of Mine" series when Nilaus explained what actually happened with his job. IMO, the comment did imply that he was fired because of Factorio, but because I know the story, I read between the lines.

I'm not going try to retell the story here, but for anyone interested, it's a good series, not only for the gameplay element, but some of the conversation was very funny.
