Google Play Games Off to a Great Start!
Google has done a great job for gamers on Android with Google Play Games. It seems to hit all the sweet spots (multiplayer, scores, play with friends, find new games, etc.) and should become an important resource for Android gamers.
It does remind me a little bit of Apple's Game Center app on iOS. That's not a bad thing though as Game Center works very well for connecting and playing with friends. I think Google Play Games goes it one better though in terms of game discovery, it seems a little easier in that sense than Apple's Game Center.
The cumulative rating on this app as I write this is 4.9, so there are already a lot of satisfied users out there. Kudos to Google.
