Obsession over Ebola virus infects gaming

MWEB GameZone Writes: "The mobile game Plague Inc. has seen a large increase in both active players and new downloads over the past week, which is attributed to the Ebola outbreak.

The Ebola outbreak has been going on for 10 months, so why now? What negative and postive effects does a game such as Plague Inc. have?"

The story is too old to be commented.

Ah yes Plague Inc. Lovely game that. Ebola is probably like the new Black Plague although i think with modern medicine and proper quarantine we would be able to contain/suppress it but if Ebola mutates to airborn then well (insert swear word here).

The idea of a virus such as Ebola going airborn and spreading like the common flu is excessively scary!

I've been naming my viruses Ebola for years! I always said it was my favorite illness. Anyone want to watch Outbreak?

Sillicur1508d ago

Hmm is that a new series or movie? I love shows like that :)

DiscoKid1508d ago

That movie was awesome.

Sillicur1508d ago

Ah a movie, will be sure to watch it!

Take note, Ebola only matters and is an "epidemic" when Americans start to die. They could/should have been more serious about it before.

WeAreLegion1507d ago

I assure you it was very serious to many Americans long before it reached our shores. Those who care about other people, anyway. If it weren't for our stupid media blowing everything out of proportion, people wouldn't be as scared as they are now.

Ebola isn't real. It's just propaganda.

the best thing the u.s. has done (quarantining) is now under fire because of human rights issues. your anti-u.s. muslim president is just asking for a reason to spread this thing.
