There was a time when people predicted, wished, or even dreaded, that Facebook represented the future of gaming. After all, hit, addictive titles like Farmville, Diner Dash, and Candy Crush Saga were all born and, for a limited time, exclusive to it. But mobile gaming proved those prophecies wrong and gaming on Facebook was left with nothing but a shell of itself.

This time, it has Facebook Gameroom, which is practically Facebook gaming, without the Facebook.
