Social Games
« on: March 23, 2012, 11:44:35 AM »
(this is a tough one: since there are both browser and mobile social games)
Social games are taking over the world~
one of the most popular one in the western world is Mafia Wars
and with GREE opening a few studios in the USA prepare for more taking over

I know hardcore gamers scorn them
but you know what? these games are actually making more money than "full" PC games with all the fancy graphics
I saw people pour 1000 USD in 1 game alone
well I'm currently addicted to this one called iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls[look at sig]
its a spin off from the iDOLM@STER series from the PS360
it plays like a normal social game though

^example of a normal gameplay
you gather idols, level them up , LIVE battle with others , do jobs
even though the gameplay is simple, its still very addicting (I really have no idea how that works, perhaps its the attachment to the series itself but who knows?)(blatant recruiting : anyone whos interested may contact me, my production [read:guild] needs more people)
well on a final note I'm playing iCG on Chrome, why? You ask
thats because I'm too poor to actually own an android/iphone
edit:lol forgot video
