    iMafia Los Angelos
    iVampires
    Mafia Live
    Mafia Wars
    Mafia Respect and retaliation
    Undead live
    Epic Pet wars
    Agency Wars
    Racing live
    Ninjas
    Race wars

    Pfft... Whats next?? Girl wars???

    What? What? Are you serious? THERE IS A GIRL WARS!!


    Plus they have all this points system

    1.20 for 10 points
    2.50 for 25 points
    ect.

    All up, the games plus the points bunuses are flooding the app store!

    It's called supply and demand. If people didn't play these awful mind-numbing games they wouldn't make any more.

    i know, its like why more and more, don't people stick to one?

    i owned iMob (and still do) and i wasted my money....

    but, oh well, as others play them and enjoy them, might as well make more to get profit even if you don't like them...

    And some people said the people who were copying my Avatar because I made a thread were sheep.

    THIS, is what I call Sheep. (By that all those idiotic games mentioned above)

    I really think it has nothing to do with trying to fit in or being a "sheep".

    Everyone wants there slice of the pie, everyone wants to make money off the app store, and so far these mafia/mob games have proven to be an easy money making technique.

    In my opinion, it's pretty much just another fad.
    There was a fart app fad, a shooting app fad, and a yo mama app fad.
    This is just another one that just won't go away. =P

    Played iMob for two minutes. Deleted it. Played Undead LIVE! for one minute. Deleted it. Played Girl Wars for 10 seconds. Deleted it. Never Again. And they didn't make any money off of me, FYI. DL'd free versions only.
