We’ve made no secret of the fact that some of us here at MUO are big Angry Birds fans 5 Reasons Angry Birds Is So Damn Addictive 5 Reasons Angry Birds Is So Damn Addictive My name is Dave Parrack, I'm a 34-year-old freelance writer from England, and I have a problem. I'm addicted to playing Angry Birds. Being hooked on catapulting feathered weapons of mass destruction into smug pigs... Read More . Dave Parrack and I are currently battling it out on the Facebook version of the game Angry Birds Ruins Your Relationship, Comes To Facebook On Valentine’s Day [News] Angry Birds Ruins Your Relationship, Comes To Facebook On Valentine’s Day [News] Read More (along with my wife, who is kicking my bottom) and with Angry Birds Space having just come out Angry Birds Space Is Out! Get It On Android, iOS, Mac & Windows [Updates] Angry Birds Space Is Out! Get It On Android, iOS, Mac & Windows [Updates] Read More , even more people are getting addicted to the pig bashing game.

Lots of people have put forward theories about why Angry Birds is so popular and so addictive but my own personal take is this – people just love smashing stuff up! There’s nothing more satisfying than a direct hit and watching that shaky structure come crashing down. My two favourite dude birds are the black one and the yellow one. They really know how to take care of business. Unlike the green bird which ends up flying in the wrong direction, or the red bird which is just downright pathetic.

But to get a true sense of the extent that some people are addicted towards the game, take a look at the infographic below which was made by Gizmowatch. The game now seemingly ranks 4th on the list of addictions behind alcohol, tobacco and Facebook. Which begs two questions – 1) does that mean that Angry Birds is more addictive than drugs? and 2) are we going to start seeing Angry Birds Anonymous groups popping up? “Hi, my name’s Mark. I’m addicted to Angry Birds“?

Let us know in the comments what you think of the infographic. Do you love or hate Angry Birds? If you love it, what’s your favourite bird and why do you like the game so much? If you hate the game, why oh why?

    Wow, it's a bigger problem than I suspected! I cannot believe Rovio is shifting that much merchandise either. My favorite bird has to be the yellow one. He clearly has the most personality.

      Yeah I love the yellow one too, as well as the black one! I actually checked on Amazon today to see how much the soft toys cost as I was thinking of buying a couple. I had to pick myself up off the floor when I saw how much Amazon wanted.

      Would you believe the black one goes for 15 pounds? And that's just for the small one!

      And why don't they sell the pigs as soft toys? That's what I want to know. How am I supposed to set up my own mini real-life Angry Birds game if the birds don't have any pigs to knock over?

      I guess I could always use my Star Wars figures as pig substitutes!
