What core gamers should know about social games

March 18th, 2010 (Visited 3658 times) Tags: , ,

The culture clash between social games and core gamers was on full display at GDC. I have been called a traitor to the cause of core gamers, even. :) At the awards show, when a Zynga rep claimed the social games award for Farmville and did a little bit of recruiting from the stage, he was not only booed, but someone shouted out, “But you don’t make games!” This is a common sentiment out there in the usual gamer haunts.

I have many many thoughts on all this — and I have been posting some of them in various places when discussions arise.
