Smell that? That's the fragrant odour of rotting vegtetation, courtesy of the nearly five million players that didn't bother tending their virtual crops in FarmVille 2 last week.
While some 50 million folks did log in last week to click on crops like there was no tomorrow, 4.6 million is a substantial chunk of players putting their pastures out to pasture. Is it the allure of CityVille, Zynga's most recent city-builder, or are folks just getting bored?
My farm is rotting, but that's mainly due to the fact that I have absolutely no time to click anymore. There are too many good social games out there to put all my eggs in one basket, so to speak.
Let's see how everybody else did this week.
