I think cookie clicker IS a parody, intentional or not. But parodies are often entertaining.

Dude, I've once played something called Idle quest, where the goals was to be idle in a IRC channel, the longer you idle the faster your RPG character progresses. So, there's that. In CC you at least click.

And oh, now there are prisms!

I would say that a game is any activity that you think is fun.  That is an extremely broad description, but it's the one that I like.

My definition for game:

A game is a piece of art in which a player or players interact with the game itself or with each other under a set of artificial rules which allow the players to complete goals and to fail at it, depending on how the players interact with the game or each other.

By my definition, Cookie Clicker isn't a game because you can't lose. Tag is a game, War the card game (without a variant or house rule that adds interactivity) isn't, War the... war isn't, a tabletop RPG is, most slot machines are but not all of them, and I don't know what Farmville is so I can't tell if or not it's a game. And, quite ironically, The Game is not a game because you can't win (and by the way, you just lost it).

Awaclus, that definition is too narrow. You can't lose at Rollercoaster Tycoon but it's considered a game.

For those who just want to see what's behind the curtain, open up a a Javascript console and type Game.cookies = 9999... etc, you even get an achievement. :)

Not in the sandbox mode, but in the (what was it called) actual game, there are goals that you need to complete and you can fail at some of them. I certainly wouldn't consider designing a fireworks display in the sandbox mode "playing a game".

A game is not defined by the one designing it, but by the one playing it.

You can. It's possible to fail at defeating an enemy you were supposed to defeat, it's possible to fail at picking a lock you were supposed to pick, it's possible to fail at swimming a long distance you were supposed to swim, it's possible to run out of water in the middle of a desert etc.

A game is a rules-based leisure activity, typically involving progress to a stated or user-defined goal.

Peebles, I'm surprised!  I thought you were my biggest rival (in the non-hatred sense, where I simply mean we have a similar amount of cookies).  I got black cat's paw a while back, so I just assumed you were right there with me.

I might be wrong, but I suspect Peebles mostly plays by idling.

Also I tried to open Cookie Clicker again the other day (with the new announcement and all) and found all my data gone. Sad times.

That has happened to me twice.  I just cheat the cookies back in.  That's the only time I cheat them in.

I was thinking about resetting after the prisms farmed a ton of cookies, but if I see that correctly, I can't get the upgrades from Halloween and Christmas in the next game until I'm at 5k heavenly chips.

So the current game has 2k chips, I could upgrade to 3.5k, but if I calculate that correctly, I lose 5.12 multiplier from 7 Halloween cookies + 7 rendeer Cookies + Santa upgrades, and lose 5% milk, which would give me total multiplier of 380 instead of my current 375, so if that's true it's not worth it and I should farm myself to the 12 fantastillion cookies for 5k chips (from currently 6) without resetting?

And on top I lose half of my income from grandmas, which is anther percent missing.

you don't lose achievements when you reset. And remember that when you reset you are going to be multiplying your cps by 75% from the heavenly chips. Not being able to get all those upgrades probably doesn't hurt you enough that it won't be worth it. Remember that the cookie upgrades give you an increase only on your base cps, the amount you get without any sorts of multipliers at all, which is actually pretty small. They do not stack. So I think it is probably worth it to reset.

Yeah, probably you don't want to reset. After my first reset with the Valentine update, I also lost quite a bit of CpS.
