The Growth Of Social Gaming

There was a time when social gaming was alien to us but from 2007 to 2011, every time you logged into your Facebook you would be bombarded with updates and invites about Farmville farms. It seemed like everyone had joined the social gaming bandwagon. Statistics show that social gaming grew four-fold annually during 2007 and 2011.

Although social gaming revenue is still expected to rise by 25% annually over the next 5 years, and is expected to reach $11.3 billion annually by 2016, the rate of growth is predicted to be slowing down. A study by Frank N Magid Associates found that the growth on social network gaming was only a 2 per cent relative rise between 2011 and 2012.

The survey showed that 38 per cent of social network users say they regularly play games in 2012 compared to 36 per cent in 2011, which is only a 2% rise. The slow down maybe a result in the reduction of the genre’s key audience of females aged 12 – 44, which dropped from 54 per cent to 47 among 12 – 17 year olds and from 40 per cent to 36 per cent among 25 – 44 year olds in the year 2012.

Social games no longer being viral is another contributing factor to the slowing down in growth of social games. Facebook has put in place limits on how many times an app sends updates to other users with the release of App Center. This means that players no longer automatically spam their friends with requests to join the app.

Now, there are too many games on social sites which means that the competition for users is greater. With the success of Facebook games, the number of social games has greatly increased creating competition among social game studios and games from other platforms such as Maple story that are now moving to Facebook.

The average spending of gamers has also reduced from $78 to $51 per year and gamers are saying that they will reduce their spending further than increase. This will contribute significantly to the slowing down of growth in social gaming.

It is good news that social gaming is still on the rise rather than on a downward slope. Though it might be a slower rise, slow and steady is better as the saying goes.

Best Games for Windows 8

Best Games for Windows 8

Are you a gaming freak? If yes is the answer, then cheers! I also join you in the list. Well, being a gaming freak, I always try to download games on all of my gadgets and PC. Few days back, I installed Windows 8 and came to know that one can get games for Windows 8 from Windows Store. I immediately move over to the Store and was shocked on seeing the huge list of games for Windows 8. Well, I somehow manage to make the list of 5 best games and I am going to spread my collected data in this article. So let’s us have a look at it.

Where’s My Water?

The best puzzle game is available for Windows 8 as well. You need to be very smart to conquer this game. For those out of you, who are hearing this game’s name for first time ever, let me tell you that in this game, the central character is alligator, and you aim is to make path for water to reach him. The character in your control is Swampy, which is a duck. You need to cut the pipes in such a way that water reaches the alligator. Though, the work is not that tough, but the fellow alligators, who do not want your alligator to get water, try to stop you on your way. This makes the game quite interesting to play.

Cut the Rope

Cut the rope in such a way that your monster reaches the Candy. The monster is totally trapped in the puzzle of ropes, and you are required to cut them away. Any wrong move will create problems for you so you should be smart enough in every move that you play in game. Once you feed your monster, the level gets completed and you get promoted to higher level.

Reckless Driving

Do you like to play racing games? If you do, Reckless Driving is meant for you. The only rule in the game is that there is not rule. Traffic rules do not hold there. The only thing that holds there is the mad driving by you and your competitors in the race. They will hit your car, will speed up their cars, will break rules to win the race. You must also do the same to be in the game.

Angry Birds Star Wars

Another popular game making into the list, Angry Birds Star Wars is about fight between your Angry Birds and Pig Troopers. You must kill them bastards or they will do it for you. The use of supernatural powers from both opponents makes the game interesting to play.

Fruit Ninja

Cut the fruits that get popped up on your device’s screen. Of course by using your finger as sword. You should be fast enough so that not even a single fruit goes back without getting cut. And yes, smart enough so that you do not cut the bombs that pop up in a frequent manner.
