If you think FarmVille's a social gaming juggernaut, boasting over 80 million players, Facebook Platform Manager Gareth Davis predicts that something bigger and better will trump the farm simulation game in 2010.

"There will be a killer app for social games in the same way that "Mario" was for Nintendo, "Sonic" was for Sega and "Halo" was for Xbox. We're going to have our Halo, our Mario, soon," Davis says in this Forbes article.

But that's not going to be FarmVille, he says. "[FarmVille] is a light simulation [game] that has mass appeal. I think that we will see a new kind of game that people have not really seen before."
