1. Heroes of the Storm

Placed on the battleground, you and your team must defeat the enemy core before they defeat yours. Will you succeed or will they?

I’d like to first start off by saying, I wasn’t a fan of MOBAs (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena). But then Heroes of the Storm came out, and while I was hesitant, I found that I LOVED it.

Heroes of the Storm is a MOBA created by Blizzard, the same developers who have brought gamers World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, and Diablo 3. Those are three games I enjoy, so when Heroes launched, I decided that I needed to try that as well.

It’s an online 5 versus 5 game, similar to other MOBAs like League of Legends and Smite. The goal is to defeat your opposing team, by destroying their core.

One thing that I noticed that differs in Heroes from League especially is the use of “items” is non-existent. Your choice of skills is what makes your hero strong, not weapons, armor, and potions. Some love this feature and others don’t.

Another thing that I like about this game is that each map has a set of objectives. One map you may have to capture towers that destroy their core. Another one has you fighting to be the first to get a curse that will disable the other teams’ towers.

The objectives are key in matches. If you fail to complete them, then you will likely lose.

Each Tuesday, heroes rotate and become free, giving you a chance to try new ones.

The game is free to play; all you need is a Blizzard account. If you’re wary of MOBAs like I was, give this one a try.
