Google+ is wasting no time to take huge steps, and come at the same place as Facebook. We know very well that gaming has been a huge part of the success of Facebook over the years. Zynga, which is a major player in the gaming space, is now on board with Google+ games too.
Well that’s a good news, especially for those who love to play games including me :P. But unfortunately, it won’t have FarmVille or CityVille etc. at launch, and other titles are also coming soon. Zynga isn’t the only player bringing games to Google+. Google+ also gains Angry Birds on day one of gaming. Other popular games like Bejeweled Blitz are here as well.
Here’s what Google has to say:
Today we’re adding games to Google+. With the Google+ project, we want to bring the nuance and richness of real-life sharing to the web. But sharing is about more than just conversations. The experiences we have together are just as important to our relationships. We want to make playing games online just as fun, and just as meaningful, as playing in real life.
And here’s how it will work within Google+:
When you’re ready to play, the Games page is waiting—click the games button at the top of your stream. You can see the latest game updates from your circles, browse the invites you’ve received and check out games that people you know have played recently. The Games page is also where your game accomplishments will appear. So you can comfortably share your latest high score—your circles will only see the updates when they’re interested in playing games too.
Most importantly, says Google:
If you’re not interested in games, it’s easy to ignore them. Your stream will remain focused on conversations with the people you care about.
