As FarmVille on Facebook nears 80 million monthly players -- and continues to attract more players -- it looks like the farming game won't go to seed anytime soon. That was further punctuated when the game won 'Social Networking Game of the Year" at the 13th Annual Interactive Achievement Awards in Vegas last night.

Other nominees for this category included Bejeweled Blitz from PopCap, Farm Town from Codebell and Playfish's Restaurant City. Even though FarmVille was a 'no duh' choice for this award, we're happy to see that all of these social games were represented (in their own category, no less) at this influential industry event.
