|The refuge of the bored housewife.|
One thing (two things actually) I don't like about Facebook games are the social aspects and the addictive qualities. I hate having to bug my friends to get stuff done in a game. And as far as addiction goes, it's not as addicting as say WoW, but it can still sucker a person in for quite a while.
I have found that Facebook games are great for wasting time, however, which in Afghanistan is something I find myself needing to do a lot. And I can certainly see the appeal for more social people. What's better than working with your friends to succeed in a game? It's like doing a Kaz run for stay at home moms (pardon the WoW reference, and I've honestly never done been to Kaz'rogal in the game).
And that brings me to my conclusion: Despite the comparatively poor overall quality of Facebook games, they have their place among games as an entertainment medium.
Anyone plan Facebook games regularly? Anyone out there who can't stand them?
