Zynga Still Owns Your Soul

Ladies and Gentlemen, Zynga has done it again. Their latest game is CityVille, which is like FarmVille but in a city. I think…I’ve never played any of their games. That doesn’t stop me from receiving invites to a lot of them every day, and my friends aren’t the only ones. The game set records for the company by setting a record of players in the first two weeks, and has recently passed 100 Million users. No, that’s not a typo. 100 MILLION. The argument could be made (and will be by many people) that they’re just marketing to the lowest common denominator, but I make the counter-argument that it’s WORKING. Zynga is now the unchallenged King of free, online casual games, and there’s nothing you can do about it.

John is what you might call something of a badass. When he's not writing about games or playing them, he's playing in the Kansas City band "Documentary" and drinking as many different beers as often as he can. He's a huge comic nerd in the best sense of the term, with a particular love for the Creator Owned movement.
