SimCity, Simpsons Facebook Games Revealed

Eventually, every game series you love will return... as a facebook application. According to a report on MCV, The Simpsons and Sim City are both getting the social game treatment. The Simpson's facebook game is scheduled to come out this September, where SimCity is reportedly in the works too. Both are reportedly the work of Electronic Arts.

I have no details on either game--in fact, we're relying entirely on the article posted to MCV--but that's not going to stop me from speculating. A Simpson's game could be anything. The important thing about that franchise are the iconic characters, so you can basically do what you'd like with them. SimCity on facebook, on the other hand, is a much more interesting proposition.

SimCity could give a serious run to current king of the social sphere, Farmville. The game's sandbox nature could actually work with the facebook platform, if it's done correctly. I could see a very addictive, interesting collaborative city building application for facebook taking over a lot of the gaming space of facebook.

Personally, I wonder if facebook is "over." Sure, there's a lot of people using it every day, but based on nothing but anecdotal evidence, I see the beginning of a defection. I used to be a pretty frequent facebooker, but every time I log on anymore, it's like being spammed with weird quiz requests, advertising, and other unpleasantness. So I've migrated pretty fully to Twitter, and I'll bet I'm not alone.

What do you think?
