It Finally Happened. I Chose A Facebook Game Over A Triple-A Game.Patricia Hernandez12/07/12 7:30pmFiled to: Far CryThe friend gameZyngasocial gamesKotakusocial164EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink You know how people ask where you were when something important happened? Usually it's for really huge things—a big baseball game, an assassination, a presidential election. They tend to be generation-defining things, stuff that permeates our cultural consciousness.AdvertisementFor games it might not be so much "where were you" but "what game were you playing?" And last night, it happened; I had one of those moments where I became particularly aware of something important, something that captured a shift that's happening in games right now.I had a choice between two newly-released games: one, a highly-lauded triple-A game. Far Cry 3. The second, a Facebook game. The Friend Game. I'd been playing both that day, so I had a good sense of what both offered. At first glance, they are absurdly different games that might not seem equatable: one is an open world first person shooter. The other is a Zynga game where you get to know your friends.
