The New York Times wants you to destroy its recommended articles, its magazine cover art and even its ads. And it's using a an homage to classic arcade game Asteroids to let you do it.
The interactive game accompanies a huge feature on "stupid games", which focuses on the time-sucking nature of games like Angry Birds, Farmville and others.

Maybe even more, which proves their point in a weird way.
