Sometimes, it's best to relieve frustration with laughter. This week has been full of server-related issues with the new SimCity and the light at the end of the tunnel isn't visible yet. For as universal as the game is, not everyone can sympathize with this feeling.
That's where Electronic Arts' Solitaire comes in with its always-on connection requirement, Facebook- and Twitter-spamming score notifications, and tremendous game-expanding card deck DLC. Now damn near everyone can enjoy the social gaming revolution.
*Note: EA actually does make a Solitaire, but it's for Kindle.
