farmville wins best social game at the game developers choice awardsAt the 2010 Game Developer Choice Awards, FarmVille wins the award for the Best New Social/Online game. The farming game from Zynga has 83 million monthly active players and has more than double the players than the second most popular Facebook game -- also by Zynga -- Cafe World.
