The lights are on
It seems that the level of entertainment players receive from Draw Something might be drawing pretty thin at this point.
Only a few months ago, Draw Something seemed like the hottest app on the market. Now, the Pictionary-like mobile app is loosing players by the millions. Zynga bought Draw Something creator OMGPOP for nearly $200 million in March, but according to BBC News, WebMediaBrands data suggests that almost five million daily users have abandoned the game over the past month.
I know I stopped playing, and went back to Infinity Blade II. What are you playing on your phone right now?
Email the author Ben Reeves, or follow on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and Game Informer.
Despite having a Windows Phone connected to my Live account, I almost never play games on it.
I own an actual portable game system (3DS, among others), so I don't need to play phone games. I understand the appeal, but I have no interest.
Spellsword and 7 Little Words are my phones top apps right now
We need someone to investigate this terrible epidemic.
Playing Wordament on my Windows Phone. That game is friggin addicting.
This is the story of every popular app-game. One day they are praised to the skies and the next day nobody cares. I don't have the statistics or anything, but it was the same with Temple Run and Word Feud. They were just fads.
Angry Birds may be the exception though.
I've discovered Tiny Station, and that's been consuming a lot of my mobile gaming time. Though I still play play Draw Something occasionally.
Brandnew Boy, the OTHER amazing action game based on unreal engine 3
I stopped playing too, I'm now playing all the awesome JRPG's on the App Store, like Zenonia.
Without any sort of competition in Draw Something, it's no surprise that everyone stopped playing.
It depends. Some days I play classics like Super Mario World. Some days I feel like some Earthworm Jim. And, on occasion, Vectorman.
Even better when you have an actual controller to use on your phone.
Eff Zynga. Die, jerks!
Jetpack Joyride is the best thing that ever happened to the iphone! XD
"loosing" ≠ "losing"
come on now.
When playing random (or real life friends) players, its nothing but loathsome drawings , and half the time they just write out the word. Those two things are were the problems are, no motivation to draw "well" , no repercussion for cheating. - - play words with friends 90%, and draw something 10%.
Yeah they stopped cuz of all the repeat words. After two days u get Tue same words over and over and over and over again.
I stopped as well. Everyone got overloaded and overwhelmed at my college
Yeah, it got old pretty fast. Luckily I stumbled across The 7th Guest yesterday. Some good ole fashioned point and click adventuring.
