Recently, an Internet game has become a new fashion among young office workers and students. People can “farm“ on a piece of “land“ and “grow“, “sell“ or even “steal“ “vegetables“, “flowers“ and “fruits“ on the Internet.
They can earn some e--money and buy more “seeds“, “pets“ and even “houses“. Joyce interviewed some young people. Here are their opinions.
Harold: I don’t quite understand why they are so mad about the childish game. Maybe they are just not confident (自信的) enough to face the real world.
Allan: I enjoy putting some “bugs“ in my friends gardens and we’ve become closer because of the game. Having fun together is the most exciting thing about it.
Laura: You know, people in the city are longing for (渴望) the life in the countryside. It reduces (减少) my work pressure (压力); besides, it gives me the exciting experience of being a “thief“.
Ivy: Well, it’s just a waste of time. Teenagers playing the game spend so many hours on it that they cannot focus on (专注于) their study.
