I'd say all kinds of games that need the kind of infrastructure Thrift provides :-)

But seriously, Thrift is not particularly aimed at games; start reading at https://thrift.apache.org/ to learn what it does.

Hey Guys,

While Thrift is not specifically for games, as Tim mentions, more and more games are massively multiplayer and make use of huge cloud backends. It’s the backend systems where Apache Thrift shines. In particular, games demand low latency, high performance backends, Thrift can be a big help in this capacity.
