What Facebook is Playing This Week: In a World Without Zynga, Candy Crush Saga is King

Two straight weeks of FarmVille 2 being at the top of the daily active users Facebook game charts is plenty. This week I'm bending the laws of time and space to imagine a chart without Zynga—a chart in which Candy Crush Saga reigns supreme.

It's a silly concept, really. Without the success Zynga's had in making millions into social gamers many of the other developers on the charts wouldn't even be here. Heck, I probably wouldn't be writing this at all. I'd probably have been irradiated in a freak lab accident and gained super powers by now. Thanks for ruining my crime-fighting career, FarmVille.

In a chart in which FarmVille 2 had not jumped up by another million active daily users this week, my wife's poison of choice, the puzzling Candy Crush Saga from King.com would be on top, with Bubble Witch Saga from the same developer not far behind. King.com would be the only developer with two games in the top ten. It would become Zynga. *insert dramatic music here*

In the end we should be thankful there's a Zynga, because it keeps other companies from becoming Zynga.
