The idea of MOBAs (Multiplayer online battle arenas) really appeal to me, the only problem I have is the time investment required is far greater than I can happily commit to.
Rewind thirteen years ago and I would have ploughed lots of energy into the genre but now a stones throw after my 35th birthday with a very active 4 year old, finding an hour unbroken time isn’t as easy as it once was.
Unlike other multi-player games I play, having to run off mid-game to see to a youngling could mean the loss of a match, when I can fit in a hand full of World of Tank matches in the same time frame that game becomes more appealing.
I have played a few enjoyable games in Smite and found the 3rd person view much more to my liking. With that in mind I have Orcs Must Die! Unchained installed and ready to go and I’m hoping to give it a whirl as I really do enjoy the OMD series.
Now to just find the time.
