Are You Facing Social Game Fatigue?

Over at, Soyon Im wrote about a topic that perhaps you might be experiencing: social game fatigue.

Im, in particular, is talking with Pet Society in particular.

I didn’t log into the game for other reasons:

I was too tired from jetlag
I realized that Pet Society isn’t as addictive as I’d thought

That last reason has come as a real surprise to me. Some people, including tech writer Michael Arrington, has claimed that games are like cigarettes. I used to think he was right, but now I can say that’s not the case at all, at least not for me.

I know I have reached that point in a number of social games myself. Have you, dear readers, had this creeping up on you?
