VentureBeat has an excellent research article discussing their findings that gaming companies received over a Billion dollars in funding in 2010. Includes a nice breakdown of all the companies and their investors. From the article:

” But the big trend that continues to drive the investments is the theme of disruption. The traditional game business is being disrupted by the popularity of social games on social networks like Facebook.”
