Facebook has said that their most popular game of the year was Gardens Of Time by Playdom, followed by EA’s Playfish and Cityville from Zynga. The statistics were not based upon revenue or user numbers, instead using user recommendations for titles with more than 100,000 monthly active users and high user satisfaction ratings.

“The average game player on Facebook played more than three different gaming titles each month and played more than half the days they visited the site,” said the site’s official blog.

Up and coming games with the highest engagement and between 100,000 and 500,000 users saw Battle Pirates by Kixeye in the top spot, followed by Dragons Of Atlantis by Kabam and RockYou’s Gourmet Ranch. The engaging games with 50,000 to 100,000 users were Super Slot Machines, WestWars and MouseHunt.
