Facebook Games Banned in South Korea

Candy Crush and Farmville are Closed Indefinitely

For many Facebook users, the variety of games seems more important than staying in contact with their 500+ friends of whom they often don't even know where they met them anymore. But at least in South Korea, FB users will soon have plenty of time to take a closer look at their friends list since that time can't be used for games until further notice.

Primarily, the South Korean government wants to stop the money flow of the casino games. They are against the local laws but are hard to prosecute since they are run from foreign countries. So instead of trying to pick them off one at a time, the Game Industry Promotion Act introduced a mandatory check for all games. Game providers can submit their product to get an age rating and then be set free again. This law exists since December 2013 but many vendors on Facebook didn't care about it until now, even though the country is one of the most important gaming markets generation millions of Dollars of revenue each year.
