inFamous Anarchy Tops This Week’s List of Emerging Facebook Games

Good things come to those who wait on this week’s list of emerging Facebook games as recorded by our traffic tracking service, AppData. At the top of the crop is inFamous Anarchy, a tie-in game for PlayStation 3 game inFamous 2, that nearly missed its launch window thanks to a outage of the PlayStation Network.

Even with that early set back, it looks like inFamous Anarchy is well on its way to classing out of our emerging list by breaking the 1 million monthly active user mark. The game’s real test will then come from how long it can continue to grow relative to other recent tie-in games’ life cycles — most notably, Dragon Age Legends, which never did quite break 1 million MAU.

    inFAMOUS Anarchy???? more like inFAMOUS Crime City if you ask me. The first several areas are exact copies of crime city’s first several areas.
