Social Gaming On the Rise

Gaming continues to grow more social online, even as the industry has its fits and starts.

King.com discontinuing five titles
King ends titles

Last week, a popular game developer on Facebook, King, announced it was discontinuing five titles on the sprawling social network starting in September. They were mostly older games that never took off, such as Bubble Saga, according to Inside Social Games.

Microsoft also announced it’s closing its gaming marketplace called Games for Windows Live Online Store, a place where gamers could shop online but which also never caught on. Microsoft tied the store into such titles as Dawn of War and Dark Souls. The company said it will continue to support game titles tied into Games for Windows Live Online, but it’s closing the store part of the service.

Online gaming, though, continues to grow like crazy. See our list of the top online game sites, along with our review of casual game super-aggregator, Y8.com.
