A few months ago, I touted the Hollywood Stock Exchange as a great little game you could play for a few minutes a day and have a great time. I've been playing since 1999. Unfortunately, the creators of the game, in an effort to make more advertising money have completely revamped the site turning it into yet another social networking site. They have pretty much killed the fun little game that it was. If you want a social networking site, there are better ones out there. If you want a fun stock exchange simulation program... well, I don't know where to look. This one was great, but it's just not fun anymore.
NOTE: Since I wrote this entry a few days ago, the operators of HSX.com have seen the error of their ways and have reverted the site back to its original (read "fun") format. Check it out.
