Top 25 MySpace Games for September 2010

Top 25 MySpace Games for September 2010

While the largest games over on Facebook may be riddled with player losses, the MySpace counterparts remain, for the most part, in the positive light. With the exception of only a few applications, most titles have gained new installations from users in the past month. That said, the social network has always suffered from a lack of new and inventive titles, with the much of this list having been present for over a year.

So far, games on MySpace have not reached the level of popularity that they have gained on Facebook but a number of “game-like” applications have. That in mind, we’ve decided to expand the list to encompass a larger variety of applications, avoiding most of the “dating” tagged ones, from long time social developers BitRhymes and RockYou. With the expanded coverage, four new apps make their way on to the Top 25 this month.

Here are the highlights for the Top 25 MySpace Games for August 2010:

  • Playdom’s #1 Mobsters sees its typical gains this month, earning over 73,000 new installations; nearly 30,000 more than last month.
  • Unfortunately, even blowing up an armored truck wasn’t enough for Zynga to oust the #1 app, as Mafia Wars remains at #2 with approximately 13.4 million total users.
  • Playdom’s simple app, Own Your Friends, sees the first loss on these charts. However, the decline is minor, with just under 4,000 lost users.
  • As part of our expanded list, Truth Box from RockYou comes in at #6. The social communication app garners 7,844,514 total users.
  • Long running Zynga RPGs, Vampires and Street Racing come in at #11 and #12 respectively with Vampires gaining 152,516 new users, and Street Racing losing just over 10,000.
  • We introduce RockYou’s SuperHug! to #13. Another simple communication app, the title is currently earning around 4.4 million users.
  • Not far behind comes the social quiz title from BitRhymes, How well do you know me? The title has remained, consistently around #16 for some time, with just over 3.6 million users.
  • Oxylabs’ title, What is your Street Reputation appears at #17 with a respectable gain of 220,000 new users.
  • Conversely, WSOP Poker (Poker Palace) drops – and not merely because of the list expansion, but due to other apps growing faster – to #18 having lost 1,358 users.
  • Last of the new apps to be added in is the BitRhymes counterpart to Truth Box, “TruthBox.” The communication application comes in at #19, earning a total of 3.3 million users.
  • Rounding out the list is Zynga’s Fashion Wars with 1.9 million users, and Playdom’s Bloodlines with just shy of 1.9 million users. The two come in at #24 and #25 respectively.
