Social Games

When it comes to social games on your phone the most talked about is words with friends. In this game you basically play scrabble with your facebook friends over the internet. Social games allow you to play a game with an actual person instead of a computer that can sometimes seem super human. Online games also give you bragging rights when you get with your opponent in real life. Google hangouts took this a step forward and added a visual face so you can have a hangout and play an online game at the same time. This could be the future of online social gaming. Would it not be awesome to play any game with anybody in the world. The great thing Google could incorporate any game they wanted into hangouts. Social gaming is a fun way to catch up with your friends but should not be an alternative to actually going and seeing your friends.
Another mobile online game is angry birds friends. This twist on the classic game allows you to compete with your friends to see who can cause the most destruction. This game seemed like a blast but there is a problem. If you want to play with your friends your friends have to be on Facebook. If you don’t have a presence on Facebook you will be stuck with the practice levels. So personally I was out of luck but if you are on Facebook and have lots of friends you could have a blast destroying pigs and getting back your eggs.               If you want to give it a try the link to download on android is:
