I don't really play any asset management games like "Farmville" or "Animal Crossing," and I don't understand the appeal of playing something that I have to check in on regularly to keep it "alive" in a digital sense. If I want the responsibility of a pet, I also want the affection and the joy of that pet. I don't really want to have to do busy work for something that I buy. Chop, Franklin's dog in the game, can be worked on by you as a smartphone app that you can access even when you're not logged on and playing "GTA." I may get crazy about a game when I'm playing it, but I have no intention of putting in the effort of a second job just to train a pretend dog, even if he is a good boy oh yes he is good Chop GOOD boy.
