Chances are you’ve been sucked into “Farmville” on Facebook, played “Words with Friends” or crushed your enemies in “Mob Wars.” And why not? The social giant’s games are low cost (outside of minor membership fees and in-game purchases), and they instantly connect you with both friends and newcomers alike. But what if you’ve grown tired of the above titles?
You may not have survived the zombie apocalypse of “The Walking Dead” yet, or saved the day as The Hulk in “Marvel Avengers Alliance”? These particular 10 games are in the next wave of standouts, not only because of their sheer addictiveness, but also in the level of gameplay they provide. Some of them might even get you drawn in by the time you finish reading this article. Yep, that addictive….
Based on the hit AMC show of the same name (as well as the comic book), “The Walking Dead” is easily one of Facebook's latest big hits. And given the nature of its tone, it's not hard to see why. In the game, you'll fight against an array of undead folks while meeting up with new survivors, taking on missions to move further into the game, and even running across a famous character or two from the show. You can also team up with friends to defend your camp and go on Walker hunts, if the mood strikes you. The coolest feature, however, is that if you (or your friends) die in a game, you can return as the undead and strike back. Though the game is in open beta, it shouldn't be that difficult to get an invite to join in the fun.
