Good to be Bad
Every once in a while, however, I just have to be bad. Since I'm not fond of jail and I don't have any chickens handy, I usually pull out a game that lets me get as mean as I want to be.
If you don't play by the rules, and you find the cheat codes, you can summon giant, red trucks that run over everything in their paths, leaving destruction in their wake. I find great satisfaction in letting the other, competing colonies build up to overwhelming levels and then smashing them into oblivion. On a particularly bad day I can do this for hours.
The humor in this game is dark, but very funny, and it's a great stress reliever.
Tonight I just got a new game called Dungeons that looks like it might be a successor to Dungeon Keeper 2. I'm hoping it will be just as much fun and also work just as well as at relieving stress. I'll let you know.
Sometimes it's just good to be bad.
