FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4.

I ate a deep fried Oreo cookie, but passed on the chocolate-covered bacon with sprinkles and walnuts. Before an hour was up, I was out $100 in cash and felt like I ate five pounds of concrete. My kid won an annoying plastic trumpet that makes my dog bark. She was happy. I was broke and nauseous happy. My dog, not so much.

But while I was there, my wife happened to notice that EA had a presence there. That ripoff EA bracelet snake oil crap was there, too, but that's another story for another day.

Now I know that EA really gets "in the game," but I wasn't aware that meant ridiculously expensive carnival games where you throw cracked whiffle balls into a clothes basket.

Instead of unlocking an achievement, you can win a giant stuffed Cartman from South Park. It cost $5 just to throw one goddamn ball, so... my cheap ass didn't actually play. But I did manage to snap this pic.
