Pre-teen Goes Crazy In Farmville, Spends $1,400!

I feel as if I am the only person on the planet who has never played Farmville. But after this story, I am more than happy with that decision..

A pre-teen boy living in the UK somehow managed to blow $1,400 on Farmville, one of Facebook’s most addictive games (and ¬†you thought the few hundred extra for the phone bill was bad, hah).

We spend money on food, groceries, gas, rent, and gadgets, right? But what value can a kid get from spending $1,400 in a virtual game? We have no clue here at Techi. But, seriously, what could this kid have gained? What did $1,400 buy him? Gosh, what does a $5 investment in this game give you? Anything of true value?

It just has to make you wonder.

Perhaps I am not the best person to comment on this, as, again, I have never played Farmville, but if someone out there can let us know what is so great about this Farmville game, feel free to drop us a comment, because I’m not going anywhere near it.
