4 MOBA Games You Should Play
The sequel to the popular Warcraft III mod “Defense of the Ancients”. Valve alongside with the original creator of DOTA Allstars, Icefrog, developed a game that competes with popular MOBA games like "League of Legends" and "Heroes of Newerth". Dota 2 brings exactly the same gameplay and mechanics from the original Defense of the Ancients but with better graphics and communication systems. I recommend this MOBA game because it's the exact replica of DOTA Allstars but with upgraded graphics for better gaming experience.
League of Legends
Inspired from the famous Warcraft III mod "Defense of the Ancients", League of Legends currently averages a massive 1 billion hours of gameplay per month which makes League of Legends the world's most played video game. League of Legends popularity is mainly due to its easy mechanics and competitive gameplay that gamers around the world adore. I recommend this MOBA game due to its faster gameplay compared to other MOBA games out there.
Heroes of Newerth
This game was released by S2 games way back in 2010 and since then became a major competitor against League of Legends and Dota 2. Unlike League of Legends, HoN or Heroes of Newerth had more similarities to the original Defense of the Ancients. Despite its similarities to DOTA Allstars, Heroes of Newerth still has faster gameplay compared to Defense of the Ancients. I recommend this MOBA game due to its faster gameplay compared to the original DOTA Allstars despite having similarites from both games.
This game was developed and published by Hi-Rez Studios. This game is a bit more different than the other previous games that I introduced. Smite is the first MOBA style game to step away from the typical isometric view. Smite provides a third-person MOBA style experience. This game also supports “WASD” movement controls which are more user-friendly compared to the isometric view style of playing. I recommend this MOBA game due to its originality on using third-person camera view rather than the common isometric view.
