Today Google confirmed the rumored games service for Google+ today. Starting today you can play a number of high-profile games through the budding social network.

"When you’re ready to play, the Games page is waiting—click the games button at the top of your stream," said Google in today's announcement. "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."

Google+ will support these sixteen games initially:
  • Angry Birds
  • Bejeweled blitz
  • Bubble Island
  • City of Wonder
  • Collapse! Blast
  • Crime City
  • Diamond Dash
  • Dragon Age Legends
  • Dragons of Atlantis
  • Edge World
  • Flood-It!
  • Monster World
  • Sudoku
  • Wild Ones
  • Zombie Lane
  • Zynga Poker
Judging by the games on the list, it seems Google's managed to snag some of the biggest social gaming players out there, such as Rovio, EA, and Zynga. Zynga is the developer of FarmVille, the most popular application on Facebook. Perhaps that game will make its way to Google+ as well.

Google plans to add additional games in the future. In the mean time, they're hoping to get user input on these launch titles. If you get a chance to try them out, send Google your opinions by pressing the "send feedback" button at the bottom-right corner of Google+.
