In the recent few weeks, I have seen quite a number of individuals who are eating dinner at nice and fancy restaurant – but most of the time their fingers and attention is to their iPhone, and sometimes the iPad. Well, I’ll be lying of I say did not do the same thing. I was in restaurant in Raffles earlier this week, and could not resist the fact that there’s so much interest in this new craze called ….. Draw Something.

It’s amazing. From what I read, the game was launch approximately six weeks ago, and has garner almost 30M players and has “processed” almost 1 billion drawings. Impressive! In addition to that, read a news report few days back, Zynga is buying over OMGPOP for $200M due to the success of Zynga. Damn..

Sometimes, it makes me thing – what does it take to get that IDEA, that one IDEA that can bring you the big bucks. It’s just so simple. I bet you, in the next few months we will see a whole bunch of copy cats that will come and launch games that’s similar to Draw Something. In fact, I foresee soon we will get a lot more of childhood games popping out on iPhone and iPad. Possibly, I can start thinking on how to make konda-kondi or galah panjang an iPad game. Or perhaps bola copping. Then again, I am not so much of an IOS developer, tried hard to learn but lacking the great ideas that’ll help me to build focus. Well now, damn lazy anyway. So much work at hand anyway.

When I was younger, I used to play PC game. I played many games, but Fifa was one of my favourite games. I realised that I did play Fifa when it first got launched in 1996. The graphics looks ugly (though it looked damn good then!).

Now, years later – the games has improved so much that the graphics is as good as it gets. I believe, another 16 years down the road (hopefully I am still here to write this down), the character in the game will be so advanced that it mimics an actual player (like better than now!).

Amazing right?

Facts….

There are 19 titles from 1996 to 2012 – excluding the event licensed games such as 2010 Fifa World Cup South Africa!

Interesting – was surfing around and saw this games Anno 2070 – http://anno.ubi.com

Set in the year 2070 – where there’s two factions, the Tycoons and Eco Friendly. The tycoons are the guys who are focused in using highly efficient technology, like nuclear and coal to run their industries, while the eco guys use wind turbines, steam etc etc to generate their power.

I downloaded the demo version (1GB from the website) just to see whether it’s a fun game. I still haven’t managed to find a game which I really enjoy, something like SimCity, Railroad Tycoon and Transport Tycoon.

The demo download is done. Time to test out!
