Thought for the day: Not a threat
After spending some time testing various Facebook games, I would say that all the hype at the GDC of "Facebook games are the future of gaming" was overblown. Facebook games are not a threat because they severely lack longevity. All Facebook games together have less hours of gameplay in them than World of Warcraft. So they are great for casual gaming a few minutes here or there, but can't compete for people who want to spend many hours each week on gaming.
