That's correct. But once you hide news feed activity for one game, you won't see any alerts from it again. Still, a tedious process.

re: Facebook Addresses App Permissions Gripes
But you do that on an individual basis, right - ignore a specific game, not all games?

As far as I know, you can't opt-out of games notifications/requests but you can ignore them. You can hide app activity from your profile, though. Hover over the update and click "I don't want to see this" from the drop-down menu.

There ought to be a way of specifying that you don't want to receive any of those game notifications. Maybe there is, and I just haven't found it.

This is great news. I know I'm not the only one that gets clogged up news feeds from all these apps and finds them to be insanely annoying. I hope they also take away the option to invite all friends to try an app or game because that is also just as annoying. Nothing like receiving requests to try Candy Crush on a daily basis.

Finally, a change that is useful. I hope many of my friends opt out of posting Candy Crush updates and other game updates, clogging my news feed.

Excellent. I'm well aware that some of my friends have no clue that apps are making posts on their behalf. I've pointed it out several times, and the result has always been complete surprise.
