"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."

    Generally a better class of comment here, not there are not great comments at the other site but there is such a large quantity of comments that were never worth reading in the first place.

    I just hope that American that is republican / democrat politics doesn't get a foothold here. Current international events has political tones but can be interesting.

    comments threads here are a lot shorter but fresher. subjects are more diverse too.
