To the Man Cave: Five Dude-tastic Facebook Games for Father's Day
Let's face it: When guys think "Facebook games," their minds instantly go to planting crops, staring at pets and bursting bubbles. But what if we told you that, yes, games for guys do have a place on Facebook? It's a small nook, sure, but a place all the same.
And whaddya know: Father's Day is this weekend--plenty of time to kick back and see what Facebook has to offer for the fellas. So here you are, five bro-tacular games to play on Facebook for the daddies and papas out there. (Click the game titles to play!)
And here you thought shooters had no place on Facebook. CMUNE's frag fest might not have the largest audience, but by golly is it a dedicated one. Having been on Facebook for over a year, the game has held study at just under 1 million monthly players. We'd say the full 3D graphics, real-time play and oodles of explosive weapons have something to do with that.
You're a guy--almost by nature, you have a thing for automobiles. While this isn't the racing game of your dreams, Cie Games' simulator attempts to embody all the fun of tweaking and caring for your dream cars. And judging by the game's 5.9 million monthly players over a year after launch, we'd say it does a pretty good job of that.
Now if you really want to burn rubber, try Nexon's new racer on Facebook. Now, don't turn away from the game's cutesy art just yet: KartRider Dash plays no games, and neither do its players. These drivers are here to compete, and if you want a shot at first place, you better learn quick. This real-time racer on Facebook may not look the part for you dudes, but no doubt it plays it.
Chances are you'll have a poker night with the guys this weekend. But in the event that you can't--you are a dad, after all--why not meet up on the most popular game on Facebook? You won't come away with your buddies' cash this way, but set up a Skype call or a Google+ Hangout, bring your own beers, and you've got the next best thing.
Marvel: Avengers Alliance
You're reading a game news website, so odds are you're a total nerd. In that case, leave it to Playdom's impressive role-playing game based on the hyper-popular Avengers (thanks, Hollywood) tickle your inner dork's fancy. Turn-based, strategic play? Check. Countless super heroes with flashy abilities? Check. Tons of crazy convoluted comic book lore to dig through? Check.
