    With many Facebook games having more players than leading MMORPGs, Facebook games are already a huge area of online gaming. Which type of online game do you think is better?

    If you want to debate this topic, pick your side and make your argument. A poll will be started when the two sides are filled.

    Facebook games are easier to play because you don't have wait on downloading and you can play them with friends on Facebook. Its a pain getting a friend to play a MMO.

    In my opinion, Facebook games are more user friendly. No downloads, No registering (except for making a facebook account). However I feel with facebooks new system, you get a bunch more spam (games asking for e-mail access).

    MMO's however have more of a story, and features in my opinion. Facebook games just seem like copies off one another but with a small twist, or extra feature.


    My Side: MMORPG's

    Facebook games are easier to get to, but the games aren't in depth. The decent games are fun to play, not the boring ones: *click* yay i finished a mission in one click *click* yay I finished another *click* aww man I ran out of energy! now i have to wait 5:32 for it to come back. I'm sure we all know at least one of these types of games. I have to take the side of MMORPGs, they're a LOT better. And anyways, the less people the better for me I guess...less lag, lol

    MMORPG- generally have better gameplay, graphics and that feeling to urge you to continue playing (and thus cause addiction)
    Facebook- simpler, relatively stress-free and overly emphazise on socialing together with friends.

    Verdict: MMORPGs ROCK!!!

    MMORPGs easy. Facebook games are not much besides wasting time when you are bored.

    Definitely MMOPRGS.

    I have played a few of the facebook games, I just dont find them as interesting or as entertaining as a good MMORPG.

    Facebook games need to be bigger if they hope to surpass MMOs.
