    "PC games are dying!!! Mobile games are the future" articles that took their place are not better at all.

    Of course not. Facebook and Zynga will be treated as the fallen last bastion of PC gaming, a relic of a bygone era that no longer enjoys the marvels of Halo 102931.

    How little self-respect must people have to work under such a retarded company name?

    A random girl: So where are you working?

    An employee: Uh, I develop games at... We'R'Dumb Inc

    A random girl: :eek:

    A laid-off Zynga employee did a Reddit AmA yesterday. This link leads to his account's comment page; browse through the comments and, if you want/need to know what he was responding to, click "Context".

    If only EA could buy Zynga, and turn it to another PopCap storie.

    The article specifically describes that nobody took any Zynga-branded stuff with them when they left the office. In fact, they ripped up and destroyed the stuff. What does that tell you about the respect those devs have for the company they work for?

    The irony is that Bloomberg called him a horrible CEO and before that or even slightly after they did a special on him calling him a "game changer". I also found it amusing that he received his inspiration for Zynga if I recall from playing Rise of Nations and sucking at it.

    Zynga was a game changer. Think "one who brings to Balance to the Force" style. It is not always a good thing.

    I hope Zynga folds, fucking decline harbingers. Don 'XBot' Mattrick as the new Zynga CEO should speed this process up :lol:
