Why do these sorts of articles always seem like thinly veiled advertisements?

"a woman played this game so much her eyes went bad.  Coming soon to your mobile appstore of choice, and the Nintendo Switch!"

//Because they are

Really - eye strain? That's a bit extreme. I was thinking she had one of those old CRT screens and took in too much radiation or something.

// although in retrospect I'm not sure which one is more ridiculous.

The multiplayer battle game puts together a team of five players who have to fight others in a fantasy land filled with characters from Chinese legends, and players can buy extra features while playing.

Sounds shiat.

Hey everybody, I just wanted to warn you all about this super addictive game I found so you don't end up with uncontrolled constant joy orgasms the way I've been afflicted from playing too much.    I'm on the way to the fire department to have them cut through my underpants with the jaws of life

If you do play it though (don't, too addictive and fun) make sure to join my guild or whatever and use the sign up phrase "christimstupid" to get some extra gold for me.   Download at your peril!!!!  You have been warned!!!   This is totes a legit warning and not marketing!!!
