I know some of you are going to love The Sims Social but I’m not digging it. Then again, this isn’t really my sort of game. If I’m going to take the time to play something, I want to sit down and dedicate time to only that game.
Gaming is supposed to be a suspension of reality and playing with my “friends” on Facebook isn’t my idea of suspending reality. It’s my idea of torture. I really don’t like the idea of “friends” from high school requesting to play along with me and then forcing me to interact with them all over again.
But while I won’t be playing The Sims Social, there’s a huge potential market on Facebook for EA to take advantage of and they’re smart to launch a game to utilize that potential market.
Do you think you’ll play? Are you into “social” games on Facebook?
