Mortgage Meltdown: Perhaps the Only Way to Enjoy Housing Crisis

It’s been a rough year for homeowners, with mortgage foreclosures at record levels.

AddictingGames tries to squeeze a little fun out of the crisis with their latest offering, Mortgage Meltdown. Lou Kesten of the Associated Press offers a review of the free-to-play, online game:

"Mortgage Meltdown" [is] a Bizarro-world version of Monopoly… Instead of buying properties and trying to corner the real-estate market, your goal is to keep your head above water and wait for the economy to turn around.

Pretty much everything that can go wrong does, from troublesome tenants to property tax hikes to earthquakes.

If you can hang in there for four years, you might see a nice windfall at the end.

    Anyone with money or credit, now’s the time to buy houses.  And rent them.  Or hold them for a few years and sell them at the real rates.

    Also, go find auctions run by banks and foreclosure auctions.  SO much awesome stuff there.  Want a new guitar?  A rifle?  A motorcycle?  Get it for 1/8th of what it actually costs!

    As for the game, this is hilariously like owning property for rent in today’s market.  Go play it; a good way to kill 10 minutes.
