Zynga co-founder Pincus 'pretty bored with all games'


When asked what his favorite game was during a recent rooftop Q&A event in Tel Aviv, Israel, Zynga co-founder Mark Pincus declined to answer, instead noting that he is "pretty bored with all games."

Asked to clarify, Pincus noted that he was previously addicted to Zynga-published social games like CityVille and FarmVille, but hasn't found a suitable replacement in recent months. "I want that addiction again," he said.

Pincus stepped down from his role as CEO at Zynga in July, handing over the position to former Microsoft Interactive Entertainment Business president Don Mattrick. Pincus currently serves as the company's Chairman and Chief Product Officer.

Zynga has weathered a number of setbacks recently, shutting down several games and shedding executives as it recovers from last quarter's financial losses.
