    Who thinks we should a category for Social Games in the Review Directory? This would include games on Facebook and Twitter like Farmville, 140 Blood etc.

    Possibly...those games have many players.

    And Farmville is a copy of Farm Town. We Farm Towners are very sensitive about it.

    Yes, social games are still growing great. Saw several in the past couple of days since I spent a little more time on Facebook than I normally do this week

    Its hard to believe but there are alot of people in these types of games. It racks my brain as to why. These games seemed like they would be sooooo booooooring. One game that annoys me is IMV if this is one of those types of games. Here I thought EVONY adds where ridiculous, every single Free MMO site had this stupid IMV add on it.

    And BTW what in the hell does IMV mean anyways?

    Not many of the people actually play...refferal fodder is what your friends are. The few that do join in turn invite a million more people for bonuses and such.

    Maybe. Personally, I hate casual games. But, there are many players for them, and I have to think about what is best for this forum. So, it could be quite a good idea, maybe we'll eventually get someone on Gameogre who's an expert on casual games :D

    What about listing those games under free online RPGs?

    Because social games are normally vastly different to free online RPGs. They're most likely more casual for a start, and they aren't necessarily all RPGs either. And some won't be free.

    I think it's a good idea to review also those games. And I really hope that you're going to rate very severe. For me, there is one game like the other. Not demanding and a terrible waste of time.

    i think it would be a great idea, i have been a beta tester in a few and a mod over the years... yes people do tend to slam them but i have no regrets about the time i spent in the good ones i found
