As for me, I found Farmville to be stupendously boring. The thing that kept me addicted to Rune Factory was that there was a limited amount of time to complete so many possible tasks, so I had to work at making things as efficient as possible. With Farmville, the ramp-up was slow, so I had plenty of time and a limited number of things to do. Therefore, one week after starting, I abandoned my plot of digital land.
One Facebook game that did pull me in for a while was Restaurant City. The differences were:
- You can make money faster and decorate your space sooner.
- There's a greater variety of tasks available each day.
- The more efficient your restaurant layout and staff selection, the faster you level up.
