Kate Solomon: Facebook has been talking social gaming at the London leg of its developer conference, F8, today, claiming that it has more gamers than the Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo platforms combined.
90% of them are crap.
and 99.9% are free
Yes but they usually have premium options to buy credit for the game good ol micro transactions.
Free for limited options. You have to end up paying to get the rest of the game. Most of the times, trying to achieve unlocks are impossible which force users for fork up cash for coins.
And most are incredibly boring after an hour.
this is whats killing gaming in the end of the day
Correction 99.9% are crap.
That's pretty sad.
"Gamers"? I would disagree, i would say it has more people who play games. They are not the kind of people that read reviews, follow developers of their favorite game along the way, watching the various trade shows just to catch a glimpse.
What a load of crap
The real question is... what kind of games? Crappy games? That counts for nothing.
Gamers or "gamers"?
Perhaps the best way to ask.
I call bullshit.
Well as long as they all stay away from my 'actual' games i couldn't care
Well said, Console & PC Hardcore Gaming will never die, it will only give up.
I believe it. There's a ton of people on facebook playing games. But are they truly gamers? I don't think so...I doubt anymore than 10% of them played games on a regular basis before facebook...and I doubt anymore than 10% of them would actually pay to play games....so they may have more people but I doubt they have a good number of dedicated gamers compared to any of the big 3
ive never played a facebook game in my life. lol
You & Me Bro, i have never opened up Farmville or Mafia Wars. it's just not me.
Gamers? they mean casual gamers lol
Please, tell me this is a joke.
trash upon trash upon trash. crappiest games of all time yes.
