As a kid, I grew up playing video games on the Microsoft Gaming Zone. I spent countless hours playing Age of Kings: Conquerors and Chess in rated competitive matches. What made these games and competitions possible was something called, the Internet. This remarkable piece of equipment is more popular today than ever before. With the workings of 4G service, internet will be faster than ever for smart phone usage.
I love playing Words With Friends and other Scrabble related games on my iPhone4. Why has there not been a rating system created by Zynga? It seems natural. Take all of these competitive people and allow them to choose whether or not to compete in a match. This will get rid of the other Hasbro imitators. If Microsoft could reasonably do it 10 years ago, why can’t you do it now?
