"Does Utopia Rule Our Lives?" by KINGPIN
It has just hit me how much Utopia controls us. We are addicted to a game, and it makes us do things that we would have thought stupid before starting it. People have been driven to waking up at insane hours during the night simply to check on a computerised simulation of a world. We are mindless zombies that pretend that we are the rulers of an imaginary world.

Ask yourself this, when you succeed in a thief operation, or take 100 acres of land, knowing that you're safe and no-one can touch you, building defense equal to an american battle fleet, does it give you a rush? Does the andrenaline pump through your body knowing that your democratic skill and strategy has led you succesfully to a greater goal?

Are we people sad, letting a simple game control our whole lives? People posting messages like "HELP!! I CANT LOG IN" after trying once to try and access the game - having been denied the desire to play, we panic. But what if Utopia should end? Will sites like Utopia Temple cease to exist? Or will we simply change to another game... like Dominion Temple, or Ambar Temple? And why do we treat Mehul as a god? Yes, he created the first game like this, and yes it is good and yes we all love it. But when people post things in the Bugs & Suggestions forum like "I GOT TO POST UNDER MEHUL!!" and "THANKS MEHUL, YOUR THE GREATEST!" and "Mehul, you ROCK!", it is merely sucking up. He may see your post, but he will discard it without a second glance or thought. Is this the life we want to lead?

I don't think we shall truly know until it happens, which i doubt - too many people are hooked, and unless Mehul wants to increase suicide rates accross the world, he wouldn't do it.

Take a minute to think about it...

It is not game that holds us it's the interation with ppl all around the world, my most interesting age and "adicting age" was the one where we had a full internal war in my kingdom, it was realy fun/satisfying to fight for something you realy beleve in, like the evil alliance will not take my Kingdom over, not while I/my province is still alive. We lost, I had to go to the alps to snowboard and it sure beat the crap out of utopia, but that's not free.

Yes, I am adicted but I'd rather do Utopia than any other drug, it at least doesn't hurt your health that bad, a little screen-tan has never hurt anybodey have it?

Enjoy the game.
yappie
