What is it about the Facebook game Mafia Wars that seems to inspire such a cult following?

Asked by jca (29281 points ) October 18th, 2012

I have a friend on Facebook who plays Mafia Wars, and I see from his friends that there are people and clubs all devoted to Mafia Wars. I am not even clicking on it, as I heard that FB games are a way to get viruses, but I am very curious what it is about Mafia Wars that seems to inspire this cult following.

Same thing about dumb ass time wasting games like Farm Ville. People have nothing better to do and would rather sit in front of a computer and get addicted to games like those or “POT FARM” than go take a hike in the fuckin beautiful fall weather. Gross.

OMG! I dumped FB almost 2 years ago and it drove me f—king nuts constantly getting invites for Farmville and Mafia Wars. Two, now ex, friends/aquaintences who were in their 50’s were obsessed with these stupid games. Jesus, get a life! lol

Seriously @deni !

Its not even that fun of a game, I played it a bit to see what it was all about, but its just really repeatitive and kinda boring. (then again as @deni people got hooked on farmville which was SUPER BORING)
