Hi my name is***** me take a look at your original question so I don’t miss any details.

Basically, game center is still running in the background but there just is not an app offered anymore. There is still some settings in settings>game center but there isn't much settings you can play with.

So the answer is if there is an app that has game center built into the app then it will automatically show you that as an option within the game. Also, most games have social media options to play with family and friends. It just all depends on the app creator/programmer at the time of creating the game on which one they decided to use or sometimes both options facebook and game center.

Usually what I do is text a friend what game I am playing and then if the game allow you to choose what friends to play then I find them through there and then send an invite from inside the game.

I hope that has helped. If not please ask me any questions you may still have regarding this.
