Google+ now offers games, competing the next step in competition with Facebook. Launched Thursday, the Google+ games page will be separated from the social networking site's normal "stream" and initially offer 16 games.
"The experiences we have together are just as important to our relationships," Google wrote on its blog. "We want to make playing games online just as fun, and just as meaningful, as playing in real life."
The initial games list offers fan-favorites such as Angry Birds and Bejeweled, as well as Zynga Poker. Google is an investor in Zynga, which makes a significant amount of its profit from Facebook.
Facebook makes a significant amount from games as well. The site rakes in 30 percent of all Facebook Credits -- the in-game currency that users pay. Google+ is adopting the same method, but will take only 5 percent of the revenue from game makers, at least in the beginning.
The games not available to all Google+ users yet, but will be rolled out periodically, as with many of Google's products. Google+ is still invitation only, although it boast more than 10 million users just months after its launch.
