"2048, the most addictive game since Tetris, was recently released. Its origin has been traced back as far as Threes!, which inspired 1024, which inspired 2048. Finally, an improved version, with animations, was written by Gabriele Cirulli, 19 year old from Italy.

The game has enthralled many, and led directly to the waste of countless potentially productive hours. A variety of permutations have since surfaced: 2048 in 3D, 2048 in 4D, and 9007199254740992.

Some ask why it's so addictive. I say, it attacks our pleasure centers in ways that Wesley Crusher already warned us about."

    I have to agree with the parent poster here, this is not news. It reads like an advertisement, it also does not explain in the summary why this is such a great game.
     
    In fact I just went and played the game and if this level of game gets a front page article, then I can think of a hundred games that should get the same treatment. Should I start to post articles about my favorite games, even if there is nothing new or ground breaking in them?

    SCNR, but look, we've all played our share of Larry, no need to get all upset about it.
