Zynga's FarmVille is possibly the biggest game of all time, with an astounding 80 million people playing it every single month. But it's not the only farming game in town.

Brunhilda and the Dark Crystal Review (PC)
Hidden object games, by their nature, tend to be very similar. If you play a lot of them it's easy to get the games confused with one another.

Here is a quick explanation of what Steam is, what it does, and how it came to reside on some 20 million computers worldwide.
Roleplaying and Romance
With Valentine's Day fast approaching, I thought it would be a good time to take a quick look at sex and romance inside massively multiplayer online games, where players celebrate everything from birthdays to weddings. Although it may not fit the stereotype, gamers are not immune to love, and gamer couples are becoming more common all the time. Most games do their best to keep it clean, but those seeking something more risque have a few virtual worlds to choose from as well.

These towers can typically be upgraded and in some games, used to force the enemy to take a longer path. Here are my favorite free browser-based tower defense games.

Farm Frenzy 3: Madagascar Review (PC)
When the first Farm Frenzy 3 was launched last Summer, it was a refreshing change of pace. It simplified the time management series, making it faster and easier to understand. But after a series of spin-offs, the formula is clearing losing its magic. Farm Frenzy 3: Madagascar is the fourth such spin-off and it does little to advance the series forward. In fact, at times it's actually hard to tell if it's actually even a new game.

Eve Online gives you a chance to build an empire in space and rise to the pinnacle of galactic domination. Almost 2 years old, the game continues to grow.

Today multiplayer shooters are played on consoles as well as PCs, and they encompass everything from realistic counter-terrorist settings to extreme science fiction. This is a quick summary of how most FPSes are played online.
Bejeweled Blitz Review (PC)
With the success of the Facebook version of Bejeweled Blitz, it's a bit of a curious move for PopCap Games to release a $20, downloadable version of what is essentially the same game. The port is a solid and addictive experience, with updated graphics and a few new features. But is it enough to make it worth the $20 price tag?
Vizati Review (PC)
Match three games are, essentially, all the same. You can wrap it up like an RPG as in Puzzle Quest or throw in a virtual fish tank like in Fishdom, the core gameplay is still the same. Vizati changes this notion. With a new game mechanic that has you moving the grid instead of the pieces, it feels wholly unique. It may be a bit on the difficult side, but with a terrific atmosphere and fresh new gameplay it's perfect for puzzle fans.

War Thunder Beta Impressions

Settlement. Colossus Review (PC)
Normally hidden object games have you finding things for the sake of finding them. Sometimes the objects are loosely tied to the plot of the game -- you may occasionally come across a clue during your searches -- but, for the most part, you don't actually use what you find. Not so in Settlement. Colossus. This interesting hybrid of a HOG and a strategy game has you searching for food, firewood, and other resources necessary for creating and maintaining a brand new settlement.

Awakening: The Dreamless Castle Review (PC)
From the opening scene, it's pretty clear that Awakening: The Dreamless Castle is doing its best to evoke classic fairytales: and it succeeds. Though the tale it tells is fairly cliche, it's done well enough to keep you engaged, and it serves as great window dressing for the actual game. And with a gorgeous, story book style presentation and some solid puzzles, there's more than enough here to keep hidden object fans happy.

With the success of films like the Twilight saga and TV series like True Blood, it seems that vampire/human romance stories are at an all time high in terms of popularity. Capitalizing on this trend is Love & Death: Bitten, a new hidden object game from PlayFirst. But instead of being simply yet another vampire love tale, Love & Death is actually a very solid and entertaining experience for the brief while it lasts.

Boundless Planet Review (PC)
Boundless Planet is one of only a handful of games attempting to take the real-time strategy concept into the massively multiplayer realm. The challenge isn't just a technical one - there are a lot of potential pitfalls in designing a game of this kind. Boundless Planet launched in early November, and I had a chance to see how this new MMORTS comes together.

Especially when it comes to casual games. The newly launched Mac App Store features plenty of great games that are short, sweet, and easy to pick up and play. Here are some of our favorites.
Onyxia Key Quest Walkthrough for Alliance
If you've reached level 60 in World of Warcraft, odds are your guild wants you to get your Onyxia key (Drakefire Amulet) so you can join them on raids to Onyxia's Lair. You need to complete a long chain of quests to get this item, and they differ depending on whether you're playing Alliance or Horde, so I've put together walkthroughs of Onyxia key quests for both factions.

When Popcap released Bejeweled Blitz on Facebook, it stumbled across the perfect formula for creating a perfect arcade experience on the platform. And now the developer has done it again, only this time with the Zuma franchise. Zuma Blitz transforms the marble slinging series into a series of short, addictive bursts that will soon become the enemy of all your free time.

Magic Encyclopedia 3: Illusions Review (PC)
It's often hard to find a hidden object game that manages to do something different, as the genre seems to be plagued by me-too copycats and clones. That's what makes the third entry in the Magic Encyclopedia series so great. Not only is it a gorgeous, well made HOG, it also introduces a new, very compelling new gameplay feature that helps make the game one of the best the genre has seen in quite some time.
The Tarot's Misfortune Review (PC)
There's something to be said for a game that doesn't try to reinvent the wheel, but instead polishes it to a fine sheen. The Tarot's Misfortune is such a game. While it doesn't do anything new with the well-worn hidden object game formula, what it does it does so well that it's easy to overlook the lack of innovation.

The History of Hidden Object Games
HOGs are one of the most popular genres of casual games. And leading the way is Big Fish Games. Not only is the company leading the way with its very popular game portal, but its internal development studios are also making some of the best HOGs out there, including the pioneering Mystery Case Files series and, more recently, the very well received Drawn games. I had the chance to speak with BFG's Adrian Woods about the history of the genre and just where it might be going in the future.
Grace's Quest: To Catch An Art Thief Review (PC)
When a gang of international art thieves starts robbing famous museums around the world, you'll definitely want some seasoned investigators on the job. Or, a recent art school grad. That's the premise of Grace's Quest, a new hidden object game in which the titular Grace travels all over Europe in search of both the art thieves and her kidnapped best friend. It's a solid and charming adventure that HOG fans shouldn't miss.

Terrafarmers Review (PC)
The Farm Frenzy series has been in a decline, with a steady stream of sequels that offer nothing new. So how do you reinvent the popular time management series? Easy, go to space. Terrafarmers features the same basic structure as the FF series, but mixes things up with new gameplay elements and fresh sci-fi setting. It's the game you wish Farm Frenzy: Gone Fishing had been.
Osmos Review (PC/Mac)
Osmos is a game about choices as much as it is a physics-based puzzle game. In it, you control a sphere with the ability to absorb any smaller spheres you come into contact with, while larger ones will absorb you. But propelling yourself forward means that your sphere will slowly decrease in size, so the game becomes a constant battle between deciding whether or not to conserve your size or risk it all to go after a larger sphere that will help you grow larger faster.
Robot Unicorn Attack Review (Facebook)
With the original Robot Unicorn Attack, Adult Swim scored a surprise hit thanks to a combination of addictive gameplay and a bizarre premise. The game has since been ported to the iPhone and, now, Facebook. Unfortunately, there's little here to entice players to switch from Adult Swim's website to Facebook. This is the exact same game just with a few social features tacked on.

There's no shortage of pirate-themed games in the casual space, just as there's no shortage of hidden object games. So combining the two seems like the perfect recipe for a dull, generic game. But Robinson Crusoe and the Cursed Pirates is far from dull, instead offering a refreshing, creative, and humorous experience that puts plenty of twists on the traditional HOG formula.

Few MMORPGs use historical settings, and fewer still allow you to play a pirate cruising the Caribbean in a wooden ship, seeking gold and glory. Pirates of the Burning Sea is just such a game, and despite the title, it isn't just about pirates. Players join several different nations in a battle over the ports in the region. I've spent several weeks sailing by the seat of my pantaloons, and this game definitely offers something out of the ordinary.

EverQuest has been around for over a decade and I can't think of any MMORPG that has had more expansions. Here is a brief history of the game and a chronological list of all the expansions released for it so far.

Turba Review (PC)
Match-three games are about the most ubiquitous type of puzzle game out there, so it's tough for developer to do something new and creative with the genre. But the team at Binary Takeover has managed to do just that with Turba. Though its not quite as musically focused as you might think, it's still an excellent puzzler that will keep you addicted for quite some time.

Need for Speed World Review

Phantasmat Review (PC/Mac)
A hidden object game about a haunted hotel sounds like about the most cliche game imaginable. But Phantasmat is anything but. It's spooky, challenging, and full of great writing and a small cast of memorable characters. It's lengthy and beautiful and, in short, just about everything you could want in a hidden object game.
Gangster City Review (Facebook)
With Gangster City, developer Playfish has jumped head first into the crowded world of Facebook mafia simulators. And while the game doesn't play all that different from other similarly themed games on the social network, in traditional Playfish style, it outdoes all of them in one important aspect: production values. Unlike the majority of Facebook games available, Gangster City looks good, which helps make up for its lack of originality in terms of gameplay.
