Starting with this game they established the ‘-Ville’ genre as they would develop many more games with this suffix in the title. By 2015 many of its games have been discontinued and almost all of those with this suffix, with the exception of FarmVille. However, many are still active, more precisely 27 of them, such as Mafia Wars, Zyn Poker, Gems With Friends, Fashion Designer, etc.
