Games Have Hit Google Plus.... I Don't Know Whether To Laugh Or Cry

What is the thing you hate the most about Facebook. The horrible theme?, The Over abundance of trolls?, The annoying interface?, The confusing changes they make to the news feed?, The Perpetual beta that it seems to be?.... How about games all over your feed? That latter is the one of the things I hate the most about Facebook and Zuck and company don't care. They have made a pretty penny with them and they aren't going to stop their unholy alliance with the likes of Zynga any time soon. So far Google Plus has been a breath of fresh air in that regard. Dah well... thats over. Today Google will roll out games on our beloved social network. Google totally intends to not make games an annoyance and I love this. Below I have included a blurb from their blog post that sort of explains it all but before we get to that let me share with you some of the games that will be available.

So Good folks lets see how it goes and please tell me exactly how you feel about the subject. It seems that Google will stay out of our way with the games. Oh yeah and here's the promised blurb from a blog post on the subject:

"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.
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."

So there it is guys. I will be back later with more goods.... Excelsior
