Google+ Games: Nothing to get excited about yet photo
Google+ Games: Nothing to get excited about yet
by Dale North

Refresh. Refresh. Refresh again.

For some reason we were all anxiously waiting for that Google+ games tab to appear in our accounts this morning in the Destructoid office. When it finally did appear for me I was a bit excited, but most of that excitement has since worn off. I don't know what I expected, but what I got was something that is a lot like Facebook gaming. 

If you get nothing else from this, at least get that you shouldn't put too much toward looking forward to that gaming tab appearing in your Google+ account.

Top ten games we can't wait for on Google+ Games
by Jim Sterling

Nick Chester, Dale North and myself are all patiently waiting for Google to finally roll out G+ Games in our respective areas. We cannot wait to play them, because we love videogames in all shapes and sizes.

While we got ourselves incredibly excited, we started to list out the titles we were most looking forward to on the hottest new social networking service. Some of them are already available at launch, but others might take some time to reach us. Have a look and see if you're as excited about these as we are!
