The Playdom title Gardens of Time was the year’s most popular Facebook game, according to a list compiled by the social network.

Facebook revealed its list of the top 10 most popular games of 2011. Although social games juggernaut Zynga makes several appearances, they weren’t able to occupy the top two spots.

Gardens of Time is a hidden-object game where players work for an organization protecting the secrets of time travel and maintaining the history of Earth.

Electronic Arts’ The Sims Social — the Facebook equivalent of their popular simulation franchise — was the second most popular title, followed by CityVille from Zynga.

The social games company dominated the list, with four of their games entering the top 10.

The list was based on games “with more than 100,000 monthly active users and giving priority to those games with the highest user satisfaction scores,” reads a disclaimer on Facebook. “The result is a list of the games that received the most user recommendations in 2011.”

Here’s a look at their top 10:

1. Gardens of Time (By Playdom)
2. The Sims Social (By EA)
3. Cityville (By Zynga)
