What is your greatest Facebook game accomplishment?

FarmVille Nursery

At first glance, Facebook games seem like they're rather simplistic and easy to complete. But those of us who are dedicated players who spend a ton of time in these games understand that there are many accomplishments in these social games that are more difficult to achieve. Just like any typical game there are achievements, levels to earn, rewards and loot to either find or purchase, and quite an amount of dedication that can be put in to your game of choice to "beat the game". Similar to many traditional MMO-style games, social games don't really have a finish line. Even when you are the highest possible level in your favorite game, there is still content to consume such as visiting neighbors, new collections, or decorating your space with bigger and better items.

Occasionally, a game will release a feature that takes an extraordinary amount of either time, money, cooperation from friends, or a combination of all of the above. There are items that take an immense amount of perseverance, such as the Pandora Jackalope in Happy Pets that requires you to log in for 14 days straight to achieve, or the FarmVille puppy maturing into a full grown dog after many days of continuing to feed it. There are also exclusive items that take a ton of real life money to buy, such as the $40+ Unwither Ring in FarmVille. And lately, there seems to be a ton of items that require many pieces in order to build, like the Happy Pets Horse Stable, the Super Stove or Spice Rack in Cafe World, the PetVille Attic behind the Tahiki Magic Door, or the Nursery Barn in FarmVille.

Treasure Isle Level 40
If you've completed one of these, you know how exciting it is to finally unlock that item or functionality that you've been waiting for. Personally, the accomplishment that I am most proud of is my dog in FarmVille. Logging in every day to feed her was a ton of fun, and once she finally grew into an adult dog I felt an amount of pride that has been unrivaled so far in any other game for me. Unlocking all of the Mastery Fish in FishVille has also been a major preoccupation of our time here at Games.com - The Blog.
