Top 25 Facebook games - Feb. 2011
The numbers are in from Inside Social Game's Top 25 Facebook games for Feb. 2011 and--gasp--Zynga is on top with CityVille (but likely not for much longer). In fact, the massive social game developer holds the top seven spots with only Digital Chocolate's Millionaire City breaking its streak in the number 8 spot. Playfish and PopCap round out the top ten with Pet Society and Bejeweled Blitz, respectively. Overall, a majority of this month's top games have inexplicably suffered declines in monthly players.
Some games have downright dropped from the list like PopCap's Zuma Blitz, Kingdoms of Camelot by Kabam and CrowdStar's Happy Pets. In light of the sad news, a few newcomers arrive to revel in the limelight. LOLapps and Ravenwood Fair take the 18 spot while Playdom's City of Wonder and Wooga's Bubble Island nab 23rd and 25th place, respectively.
Some takeaways from this month should be that while CityVille is currently dominating, it might not be for long given recent numbers. Overall, it appears that people are playing fewer Facebook games, which could have something to do with lingering New Years resolutions to do more work in the old cubicle. Either that or players are getting tired of asynchronous simulation games like CityVille and FarmVille. Finally, the battle for second place has a few new contenders aside from Playfish and Playdom in Digital Chocolate and PopCap. And given recent results, this battle won't be decided anytime soon.
How long do you think it will take for Zynga's CityVille to fall, if at all? Who do you think will eventually come out on top for second place? Sound off in the comments. Add Comment.
