I've played this game for the past ten years and loved getting to see if i'd picked right with either shorting or longing the stock for the openers. I still remember my ten million loss when i didnt think spiderman would do anything. But that was what this game was all about. gut checking your instincts. now it's all but spoon fed to us and its a case of buying all the stock you can. theres been alot of changes over the years with this game but i do believe that these lastest changes are going to be the final nails in the coffin. My friend used to play this game but he sold off all his stock because of all the new changes and doesnt play anymore.as for myself, ive found myself thinking this is the only game were you make money for an entire week and still fall down the rankings. its a shame because im really trying to like the new changes but i cant.i dont visit as often now and really cant be bothered because it's lost that sparkle, that thing that made you doubt yourself before you bought shares.have i got it right?should i have shorted? now just buy both cause we can sell the one thats wrong. Nah, no fun in that im afraid.

Hey Swordfish1, I couldn't agree with you more. I've made some huge gains (and equally huge losses) over the years by holding on to stocks {nm}   philjack on Dec 04, 16:19
