Most online strategy games (like FarmVille) dislike automated scripting and don’t have a REST API. Are there any games that encourage scripting and do have an API for automatic play?

(Kumar Sambhav): Though I don’t completely understand what you want to achieve – have a peek at http://www.programmableweb.com/api/aevum-obscurum. I guess automatic play via an API – I am not aware but its my belief that indirectly using web services/REST you can do it. All multiplayer games communicate using REST or some other mechanism – those messages can be captured, analyzed and you can hack into their gameworld! Let me know if you find something better!
