Google announced today that Google+ Games are launched. The first batch of games include 16 titles released by 10 developers, including Angry Birds and Sudoko.
An innovative design by Google is the way you receive invitations. The games are shown in a Games stream. You can see updates from games in your circles. You can choose to ignore the games and focus on your social conversations. This is how Google described it:
When you’re ready to play, the Games page is waiting—click the games button at the top of your stream. You can see the latest game updates from your circles, browse the invites you’ve received and check out games that people you know have played recently. The Games page is also where your game accomplishments will appear. So you can comfortably share your latest high score—your circles will only see the updates when they’re interested in playing games too.
Unlike Facebook which charges 30%, Google only takes 5% from the game developers for any in-app purchases and transactions. It is believed that game developers would like this deal and are motivated to release more games in Google+.

Have you tried these games? Do you like them? I haven’t tried them, still waiting for them to appear in my Google+ streams. But on the face these Flash games look great. Share your views here!
