I remember that at the young age of ( I can't remember), Webkinz, was the thing for me and my sister. Got stuff animals. Got that cat, and she got that dog. Lovely. In the past, there was NO ADS. There was NO MEMBERSHIP, and best of all, IT WAS A CHILDREN'S GAME.
Today, as I login in the year 2016, all I saw were ads, upon ads, all over my screen, like a Christmas decoration. And I thought this was a game for kids! Ha. I saw an ad about PADS. You know, the one the a certain human being wears. Why is there such a thing there? I do remember that I did login in at different year intervals, and I found out that my favourite game was only for members. Then I realized that Webkinz decided to go into the money draining game company.
Present day Webkinz is... crap. So much membership items. If you don't have the membership, your pet is gonna die. In the past, everything was easier to get, no harsh restrictions set upon you.
And now, we talk about the future. You know how today, all sorts of games are going into a money draining game? I play this other game and it's a SPENDING game. And on that game, we have those people called spenders. All the things you want to buy with real money is expensive. Crazy expensive. So all those games you thought were good for children back then ain't gonna be so in the near future, which could be now. Then, one day in the future, while playing Webkinz, I bet that ads will pop up every 5 min when your kid is playing. And you, the adult will be spending much more than you ever thought you would.
