    I bet you don't believe that I can prove it. This introduction was the most difficult section of this article to write. How do you convey that a game really is the best current MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game)? After all, that’s kind of subjective. An old writing adage preaches that you should show your point rather than just state that it’s true. Guild Wars 2, in short, is the best MMORPG I’ve tried thus far. It puts an innovative spin on the things you lik ...

    Who doesn't love to hate a good villain? As Batman once said, “You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.” Many villains are certain that they’re in the right—that they know how to save the world and make it a better place. After enough shady decisions, they’ve descended into villainy and must be stopped by a chipper protagonist. While villains are generally hazardous to the state of the world, you have to remember that they were once ...

When I began to play MOBAs (Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas), I didn't think to ask myself those questions. Something was missing, but I couldn't quite pinpoint what it was. And then I found a MOBA that changed my mind. It had everything—it was gorgeous and full of opportunities for wonderful gameplay like I'd never seen. Better yet, it was still i ...
