Farewell Psychobabble


(Note: Please see my update to this post on AcroBabble; more updates to come soon over at Always Go Right!)

One of my favorite multiplayer online games is soon to vanish forever. And no, it's not another MMORPG that's getting cancelled.

It's Pyschobabble from
PopCap Games. If you haven't heard of PopCap, perhaps the word Bejeweled will jog your memory. Bejeweled is an insanely popular little single player game that's probably cost billions in lost worker productivity.

Psychobabble is not nearly as well known a game as Bejeweled. But it's crazy fun. You join a room of 8-12 people. When a round begins, you are presented with a bunch of different words, loosely connected in meaning to the theme of the round. It looks kind of like those magnetic poetry fridge magnets that were popular for a while. You pick words and attempt to make an entertaining sentence from them. The time you have to do this is pretty short.

When the timer runs down, the voting phase begins. You vote on the sentence you find the most humorous (you can't vote for your own). You gain one point for each person who votes for your sentence and three bonus points if your sentence gets the most points. Now, you might think a strategy would be to intentionally vote for bad sentences, but PopCap solved that problem by giving you a point if you voted for the most popular sentence. That motivates you to vote for the sentence you actually think is the best. You also don't know which player's sentence you are voting for because the names are hidden until the voting is complete.

My description of the game is kind of dry, but in reality it's a frenzied rush of desperate thinking and hilarity. There are very few online games I know of in which creativity and humor translate directly to victory. And Psychobabble just works perfectly as a game, so I thought it was pretty special.

There are some negatives. It's horrible to play when the other players are horrible. And the accompanying chat room can be truly dreadful. Some of the usernames in there are reminiscent of AOL circa 1995 and so is the dialogue. I tend to ignore it completely.

But I always enjoyed playing a few rounds every week or two, so I was saddened to hear it was soon to vanish. PopCap recently posted the following statement:

"
Dear Customers:

We have decided to remove our Multiplayer Games from PopCap.com.
After August 10, 2006, these games will no longer be accessible. But until
then, feel free to play to your heart’s content!

We’re really sorry for the inconvenience … and disappointment. But
remember, we have tons of other
fun, free games to choose from —
so keep checking in at PopCap.com.

Thanks,
--The PopCap Staff
"

I sent them an e-mail to ask why they're removing the multiplayer games but I haven't received a response yet. I'm guessing that maybe the ongoing costs were too much and the revenue was limited. I did get some spam tells (or whispers as they're called) in the chat room while playing recently, so maybe the headache of dealing with that had something to do with it.

I don't blame PopCap for killing the relatively small online segment of their operations, but I will miss Psychobabble. I've been looking for a replacement and the closest I could come are versions of Acrophobia (some links from
this wikipedia page). I suppose it will have to do, but until August 10th, I'll be bidding farewell to Psychobabble.

I'll have some EQII posts when I catch up on the news.

This is a very very sad day indeed. I mourn the loss of Psychobabble and curse whatever forces of economy have brought about its demise.

I have spent many a late night arranging the innocuous words into innuendo-riddled filth for my own purile amusement and now it's back to the crappy fridge magnet words, which I have to hide when my mother-in-law comes round.

I googled Psychobabble as soon as I saw it was gone, and found this blog. I played the cool Berzerk Acrophobia all through the 90s until it's demise and soon after found Psychobabble. I've played PB game for years. I attribute the downfall of Psychobabble to the recent influx of snerts simply using the game as a chat room and being generally obnoxious to actual players. I will really miss it.

The loss of this game hurts me so. I loved Psychobabble for many years but I fully understand the reasoning behind their removal.

One of the reasons they took the game offline was because they didn't have the resources to police it... and it WAS in desperate need of some moderation. People would join just to use the rooms for cybering and not play at all. It got to be ridiculous.

You could be in a full room, but the only one posting sentences would be you.

It's just one of those times where the stupid fucks ruin a good thing for everyone else.

What a sad day!! Think I'll get out a pint of rocky road and drown my sorrows. (foursit)

Hey, I googled and found this blog. Just for information, popcap has said that they do indeed plan on bringing back psychobabble, they have to change from a java base to a flash base, which will take some time. They do not want to say how long. In the mean time, they are releasing many new multiplayer games and so I believe that babble has to take a backseat to this. Let me just say, I haven't been back to play any of their games since they pulled the plug. Why would I?

FYI if any of you played acrophobia at uproar.com then be aware that they too are going offline for a few months to update as well, I believe at the end of September.

Hopefully popcap will get in gear and bring back our game sooner than later, and make it snert free this time. good luck to you all.

This is just unbelievable...I just found out babble is gone!! I know I'm kinda late finding out, but since I am now married to the wonderful man I met playing the game, we don't play as often. I actually met a man who lived in England, and I am in Texas. We fell in love...and part of our "dating" was playing babble every night. We were 1SlicChic and Pimp AKA Wombraider. After playing, and "online dating" for almost 2 years, he left everything he had in England and moved to Texas to be with me. It's been almost 3 years now and we are still happily married. We are so sad to see Psycobabble go, and can't believe it had to be so. Ever heard of Shockwave? On their multiplayer games, they play about 30 seconds of commercials while the game loads, then some banner adds on the bottom while loading as well. It doesn't affect the game in the least. Why the hell can't popcap do the same??? It's unbelievable....people form online "families" playing these games, and poof...they are gone. It really makes me sad.

I wonder if Popcap is removing any of the other chat enabled games. I was wondering if it had to do with underaged people receiving chats from predatory types.

I, too, googled and found this page. I first found out about PB when it was written up in a national magazine several years ago(Time magazine, maybe?). The review was so positive I had to check it out, and whoa, what an addiction playing became! At the end, PB was almost impossible to play, what with so many kids using it for a chat site. One of the regulars had started a site, I think it was called "cocoa's lounge", for the real diehard players, but I never did get the address for it, though I'd been invited to play there. I do miss my babble! Will check out the sites mentioned here, though. For now, hello old friends, from CripesSuzette!

The caption game sucks... but http://www.farragomate.com/ is so completely awesome! Very much like babble, you can use the same word more than once in a sentence. The prefix & suffix selection is fabulous, and there is a boot if you dont play for 3 rounds, which should really hinder the snerts. They have light rooms and dark rooms, and even wandering in at 4:30 a.m. I found a pleasant game with intelligent people. This is 100 times better than Babble ever was, except I miss you guys.

Yeah, I googled psychobabble in hopes that it was on some other sight. But my fears were confirmed by this blog.
I'm glad that others were mourning the loss, too.
I tried acrophobia, but it wasn't the same..

Oh well.
Hopefully some other sight will put it up soon.

Thanks for posting this.

I just loved the game. My thought is anyone who did not like it, did not have the brains to play or to understand it. I actually used to laugh out loud at some of the sentences. How oh how to we get it to come back?

You know what you could do is start a website of your own that charged for the game psychobabble. That way you could recover the costs and actually make a profit. I would pay to able to play that game again... that's how much I miss it.

" I WANT MY PSYCHOBABBLE BACK!!!" I loved the game, all the cool people I met, sooooooo much crazy fun. Good times, good laughs and indeed made friends out there. I was mommabird, and used to play with flaminghot, (all the hots) they were related, and many many more, was even invited to a psychobabble tournament where 8 to 10 babblers met up in person with their laptops and go to another babblers house , play babble and then grub and have fun. BRING THIS INCREDIBLE GAME BACK! PLLLEEAASSEE! Sadly missed by Mommabird in Indy

Well, here’s the good news: You can still play Psychobabble online! I was completely overjoyed when I stumbled upon a forum where someone mentioned that Psychobabble was still alive. Reincarnated at Mutantdog.com as Pseudobabble, the spirit of the game lives on with a shiny new user interface and community pages.

I miss the old Babble game still, even after all this time. There was such a community spirit there and TONS of laughs to be had. I know some folks still keep in contact via other websites and emails.

I've tried that Mutant Dog Babble, Pseudobabble - and it's rubbish. Not a patch on the old PsychoBabble game. The people who play there seem to be the ones who were always causing a drama of some sort on the old babble game. One in particular thought she was Miss THANG and had all her minions dancing around her. LOL.
There's too much tension in the rooms on that rip off game Pseudo, and they're hostile to anyone who goes into the rooms who might not be a name they instantly recognise. Not nice people at all. I keep well away from that place now.

Wish they'd bring the old babble game back. Miss it more than I ever thought I would.

babble.cx is a pretty good version but it is a little buggy and the guy who made it, Gregor Stocks, hasn't been back since Dec 2014 to further develop it. Would be great if it had a bit more functionality, such as a lobby! Oh, some more players wouldn't be a bad thing either! Come back Gregor....PLEASE!

Psychobabble was probably removed due to the chatroom. I used to play it a lot when it was around, and people kept asking for my ASL (or other players'), trying to start a round of cybersex. I'd always put those people on Ignore, but it didn't keep them from making the attempt.

I imagine that the site got a lot of complaints--from parents, if not from the players themselves--because of that. And, if I remember correctly, there were TWO sets of rounds: One PG, and one NC-17 (which I avoided like the plague, because the concept made me sick). They probably got A LOT of underage players sneaking into the NC-17 part of the game, and people got upset and decided that the ENTIRE game needed to come down.

It's such a pity, because the game itself was so much fun. I got so many laughs off of the game, and I made friends with many players. What a shame that it only takes a few spoilsports to ruin things for the rest of us. :(
