I've heard Zynga policy to make games was to just copy existing stuff but add some things to make it seem different, I'm sure there tons of more creative ideas for facebook games.

Because these guys are richer than what they deserve, they have no-tech leading experience, aren't really well with other big named developers and inside there's a lot of talk of grumpy overworked employees that Zynga is a crap place to work, as well as claims that people were fired about something with stock a possible unlawful action, they provide no benefit to the industry in terms of innovation or cooperation with hardware manufacturers, they are very unfair, total parasite.
Iwata pointed out that the cheap mobile games business which are very low quality very low effort games are the biggest enemy to creative industry.
The CEO is an unprofessional douche who's obviously playing a media-whore nice-guy act on his twitter and other outlets to make it seem like Zynga is some kind of "noble" developer.
