Hello Fruity Chums! New poll up today on Fruitaku – what is the best fruit ’em up of all time?
As you all know, a fruit ’em up is a videogame which involves collecting an inordinate amount of fruit. This genre, as you’ll all agree, is the pinnacle of videogaming. Why? Well allow me to explain…
Since the dawn of time, man’s principal past time has been collecting fruit. It is imperative to his very survival that mankind develops an innate, primordial and un-wavable urge to visually locate, track down and consume fruit. This is why videogames which feature the collecting of fruit satisfy both man’s competitive desire for hunting, but also that of fruit collection.
Other videogames may often forget the basic need to satisfy our primeval urge of fruit hording and collection, but that is to their detriment. Sure, it may satisfy some urges, such as ‘pretending to be in a band you’re not in’ or ‘driving a car you can’t afford on a pretend road’ or in some cases ‘killing another human being’ … but there is no pleasure as visceral, as all encompassing as fruit collection.
It is with this in mind that we ask you to answer this simple opinion poll:
