    I am definitely surprised by how many users Zynga’s CityVille has generated in such a short time. I thought the CityVille game was just a copy of FarmVille and didn’t think it would do as well as it is now. After reading this I am interested in trying out CityVille to see what it’s about. This is great news for Zynga because FarmVille is definitely one of the most popular games online right now.

    I am quite surprised at how popular CityVille has become. I just saw the other day that there are now over 100 million monthly users! Zynga really nailed it with CityVille. My question is what might they be able to release that could top CityVille? CityVille sure blew FarmVille away!
