There are what Kotaku thinks are the best games on Facebook, and then there are the games Facebook's game curators and players think are the most playable pieces on the social network. I find their lack of Robot Rising disturbing.
For the most part the official Facebook list contains the usual suspects. There's a couple of Zynga sequels in FarmVille 2 and CityVille 2. Thanks to the inclusion of mobile gaming on the list there's Draw Something, CSR Racing, Clash of Clans, Bike Race and Subway Surfers. King.com's Candy Crush Saga gets a nod, which is good because I am currently addicted to matching colorful candies and cursing at the top of my lungs.
Most of these games we've written about at one point or another, but in case you missed them, here's what Facebook's vox populi likes to play, courtesy of the Facebook App Center.
