Jetpack Joyride goes to the dogs

, | Games

I’m mostly pretty good at marshaling the appropriate amount of fury for things like always-online DRM, in-app purchases, and free-to-play design compromises. But when games are as good as Lord of the Rings Online, Anno 2070, and Diablo III, I eventually just shrug and feel grateful that I’m playing a game this good (see also the extra box office take for The Avengers because it’s in 3D). At a certain point, you have to accept defeat, let go of your anger, and be glad when good things are successful, even if you don’t like aspects of their success.

In the case of Jetpack Joyride, that point involves cute dogs.
