When has zynga made an original game not based off another game. Their entire success is based on improving (I laugh as well at this word) another person's game.

Better yet, why not download it and have a bit of fun, instead of watching a crappy video? =P

You'll most likely need DosBox to run it.

There's tons of abandonware games out there, and this site has a really nice collection of them.

Check it out. =) If you do, and need help with using DosBox, just send me a message.

Why do I feel this constant hatred towards Zynga?

Maybe because they're mooching off obvious ideas and passing it off as their own? :p

Please, drain these leaches of all their money. What they "create" can't even be described as games, if you ask me, and they care nothing about them, nor the people playing.
