New developments in how consumers choose to game has led to a new category being included in this years running. Social Network Game has 6 games in the category including popular Facebook games My Empire and FIFA Superstars as well as Bejeweled Blitz and Farmermania. But surprisingly, no Farm Ville or City Ville to be seen… Both these games had me hooked for weeks!
