The Land Before X-Box

What is it about Flash games that makes them so enjoyable? They’re obstinately regressive in style, they’re numbingly simplistic to play, the music is like casio nails being driven into your head with a digital hammer, but they’re a great way to kill time before you kill yourself. The newest one is called Dino Run (via BuzzFeed).

The object of the game is simple: run away from extinction. Which is kind of what we’re all doing anyway, am I right? Whoa, deep! Thank you for all the brains, college.
