Among Us is the biggest hit game this year. The indie game has a team of players work together to performing simple tasks on three available maps. There are randomly assigned “Imposters” who will have to directly, or indirectly, kill the other players without getting caught.
Our lives. We step back and think, do we want to blend in? Or stand out? Or take the path less travelled whether anyone notices or not? Study hard,become a doctor/engineer and buy a boring Toyota Allion to show you’ve arrived.
Back in the early 2000’s I used to head out to Eastern Plaza in Dhaka with my pocket full of hard earned savings to buy games to play. Cracked games mostly and the occasional originals for consoles shared by friends. Wow, those were expensive. And when all else failed, it was time to head out to the shady, makeshift, sweat smelling street corner shops with arcade machines. That still cost money. Two taka per game would add up to many, many ‘monies’.
