    Yes, exactly. Facebook games are far too shallow to be very enjoyable, while the great variety of solid MMOs provides a huge selection of in-depth games that will keep a player entertained for a very long time. The novelty of Facebook games wears off quickly in my opinion.

    My side? MMOs.

    I'm definitely agreeing with MMORPGs being better than facebook games. I really don't think that any facebook games have enough depth to make them very enjoyable. MMORPGs usually have more details and attention to the small things that can make a game very enjoyable.

    MMORPGs are definitely better in many ways in my opinion. They're more exciting, more interactive, etc.

    The reasons why Facebook games are so popular are because many people use Facebook, they can play most of the games in short periods of time (appropriate for short breaks), and relatively simple (especially for girls who really are not into gaming).

    But for me, it's still MMO. :)

    Although actually, the poll may not be too accurate since Gameogre members most likely are mmorpg fans.

    I agree with logen that there may be more players of Facebook games. If this poll is in yahoo for example, I think FB will win. :p

    GO has more than just MMORPGs. There are shooters, strategy games, and supposedly a browser section (hint, hint) coming soon:p.

    i didn't vote because mmo is a game that you'll play obsessively well for me anyway and fb games well there's alot of different style of games in the same place alot of them are good just to kill 10minutes waiting for the train mmo games are equally as awesome cos you can build your game status quest and more with the same character
