As per the announcement in news, Livejournal Games are history as of today:

Games Discontinued
We resisted writing “game over for games on LiveJournal,” but yes, on April 9, the Games tab will disappear from the LiveJournal navigation bar, and games – including Sim Hospital, Airport and City Gangs – will no longer be available to play.

It was only a bit more than a year ago that these were introduced. I'm curious, did anyone ever actually play one?

No, not really. And I thought this was a blogging service, not a gaming site. :D

I guess they thought they might get people to stay with imitating "FecesBook" (No, I am not using it and never will, I appreciate my privacy way too much). :P

Yeah, I think that's what they wanted to do there... I still think it's silly, too.

LJ has its own strengths, and it'd be better advised to play those strengths instead of trying to be a clone of any other site. Clones usually don't fare well; after all, people can just go and use the original instead.
