    I have been playing Playfirst games for as long I can remember. There is no one who comes close to the quality of their games. Diner dash and all the dashes, avenue flo- they have it all.

    What has happened? They haven't released any new PC games Just revamping the old ones for android and mac.
    I miss them so much. I have played the diner dash series several times.
    Anyone know why?

    Oh wow... Playfirst closed their doors many years ago - they haven't made a game since 2005.  It's the reason why their games never go on sale at Steam - because the company no longer exists.  It's also why Big Fish does not sell their games anymore.

    You should try the Delicious: Emily games by GameHouse.  They're not as frenetic as the Diner Dash games (no chaining bonus for cleaning up, for instance), but once I got used to the style of the games, I was totally addicted.  I have a whole section dedicated to the Delicious: Emily Games, and have thoughts on the series posted here.

    Do you like TM's like the My Kingdom for the Princess and Roads of Rome games?

    I havent played these games.
    Its just so sad that playfirst shut down. Their casual games are the best. Why would such a good company shut down like that?

    If I remember correctly, there was some kind of dispute... Big Fish might have been part of the equation, but it's been so long that I can't remember now.
