Social gaming is a big business and I’m wondering if it’s finally starting to peak.

Recent news that Draw Something’s numbers, post acquisition, are nosediving.
I personally don’t think social gaming numbers are dropping but I do think a shift in the market will take place. I think the games themselves will need to evolve. I think they’ll need to keep pushing towards mobile and I think they need to start making the leap beyond just Facebook games. I think over the next few years AR games will become a very big deal.
