Facebook aims to counterattack Google Plus' game support through adding a clump of new gaming features.

Just after Google launched their own game support for Google+, Facebook released an array of new features for their social games — giving them a good step to prevent Google’s future control on the web.

One of the features which Facebook introduced lately, is the Game Ticker. The Game Ticker turns your Chat column into a news feed, allowing you to see your friends’ recent gaming activities, such as the Facebook games they’re playing, their achievements, and even their high scores.

The new feature is also designed to be social, and players are entitled to control which stories will appear on the stream — just like in the Facebook News Feed.
