"Recently, Mike Fisher, CEO/President of Square Enix USA, came out and said that he does not see the current trend of social gaming (games on Facebook) lasting forever.  He seems to imply that games such as Farmville, Civ World, and Mafia World are just fads that will soon go away, and that gaming as we knew it a couple of years ago will continue on its merry way.
I, however, must respectfully disagree with Mr. Fisher. As much as it pains me to think that way, I don’t see social games going away anytime soon. In similar fashion to the Wii (and motion gaming as a whole), these perceived fads by game developers and gamers alike, will be around for quite some time."
