Posted on May 7, 2008, Chris TypeRacer: Another Insanely Addictive Web Game
I don’t know how I missed this, but it’s probably for the best since I wouldn’t have been able to finish GTA IV otherwise. MTV Multiplayer’s Patrick Klepek posted a story a few weeks ago about how he was having trouble getting work done after coming across a web game called TypeRacer.
Your goal is simple: to type the quote on screen as quickly as possible while competing against other players doing the same. You see little cars racing across the screen as you progress through the quote. Afterwards, you can see how many words per minute you typed and immediately hop into another game — and these are always real people you’re competing against.
Is it just me (and Patrick), or is this ridiculously fun for some strange reason?
