Game Psychology: Reasons behind Angry Bird's Success

Going back to my previous Angry Birds posting I hinted that they might be other deeper factors behind the games infiltration into our lives. Stand by for this one: anthropomorphism. What !you say.

The pigs too take on human characteristics their every oink seeming to be a middle finger pulled up at the birds. Their shifty eyes ,and on some crazy mustaches, making them seem to be villains.
