Zynga - Farm Villains

I've posted/written a couple things about Zynga before. This SF Weekly article:FarmVillains – is really great. Best quote:

One of the more common complaints among former Zynga employees is about Pincus' distaste for original game design and indifference to his company's products, beyond their ability to make money. "The biggest problem I had with him was that he didn't know or care about the games being good — the bottom line was the only concern," a former game designer says. "While I am all for games making money, I like to think there's some quality there."

That's sad.
