When I was a youngster eager for amusement of any kind, Easter egg hunts were a lot of fun. The promise of reward in the form of chocolaty goodness and the competition of beating my brother and sister to more treasure strained my eyes on the search so much that I now have to wear glasses (okay genetics may also have had something to do with it…).
But now I have grown up (somewhat) and what do I find myself doing? The same bloody thing, only now I hunt goodies in video games…and it’s a lot less fun.
There’s still the so-called reward in the form of achievement points or trophies (usually if you find every single stupid hidden item) but they are really useless in both the real and game world and not nearly as good as chocolate eggs.
