Yahoo! Games, one of the Internet’s largest gaming destinations, is available for buyout offers, according to PaidContent.

The casual games portal currently serves 19.2 million monthly unique visitors and is considered one of the largest casual gaming platforms on the Internet.

Yahoo! Games is joining HotJobs and Yahoo! Personals as channels that are up for grabs, but only if Yahoo! receives the right offer.  PaidContent outlines a couple of potential buyers:

Who might buy If News Corp wanted to loosen the purse strings (we re not sure how much), Yahoo Games could fit with IGN Entertainment , which had 14.4 million unique visitors in June…MSN Games could break into the top five with an acquisition; ditto for AOL.

Casual games is a market with a great amount of growth over the past few years, but is the Yahoo! move indicative of a market at its apex, or just a smart selloff to reduce costs in the long run   And why can’t video game sites come close to the amount of traffic circulating through their casual cousins?
