The New York Times Embeds Video Game in Article on Gaming

 

The New York Times has given all of its haters the opportunity of a lifetime: An easy way to destroy it. Well, sort of. The New York Times Magazine’s cover piece this week is about the addictive nature of “stupid games,” and for the online version, Jon Huang, a multimedia producer at the Times, modified a simple game to allow users to shoot apart the page.

It’s gimmicky, but dammit, it’s fun. We just spent 10 minutes shooting up the “Most Emailed” section. Poor Maureen Dowd, her avatar was the first to feel our wrath.

Give the game a try if you have a few minutes to waste today. Or just be boring and read the article.
