Angry Birds – A 10 Year Retrospective
The Intro In Three Paragraphs Or Less
So I heard a little rumor that Angry Birds turned 10 recently. As such, I thought I’d whip up a special roundup chronicling the early years of the franchise, as well as share some thoughts on where the IP has been and where it might be going. Now I’m going to level with you, I am not a die-hard fan of the main series or the property as a whole. I have nothing against the birds, and I certainly enjoyed the first outing, but the whole package didn’t grip me enough to make me want to spend hours and hours with each iteration of the game as it was released.
Also, for the “recap” portion of this roundup, please understand that when I first started doing roundups, I had a tight-ish schedule for releasing them, and as it was a side gig I had to shortcut the process by writing about games that I had not necessarily played yet. Nowadays I don’t include anything in a roundup without playing it unless I specifically mention it, which doesn’t happen very often. At any rate, I bring this up because while I’m not 100% sure, I believe that for the first portion of this roundup, the only two games I had played prior to writing about them were the original Angry Birds and Angry Birds Star Wars II. So take the rest as merely reworded iTunes descriptions rather than actual analysis / recommendations.
Now, on with the show…
