Go Blow Up The New York Times' Website

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. Using a keyboard to shoot the sidebars and headlines of the Grey Lady's articles proves to be incredibly satisfying. You'll spends as much time shooting as you do reading. Maybe even more, which proves their point in a weird way.

Just One More Game ...
