Dota-Clone Name Suggestion

Forewarning: this article contains some sarcasm and cynicism about a genre that is very popular and that I have enjoyed. It also has opinions which are my own and not necessarily yours. The beauty of it is that we can exchange our opinions ...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

About Headless97one of us since 11:51 AM on 11.16.2013

I know why I play games. It is not just "because they're fun"; that's a crummy answer that doesn't really say anything. I play video games because all of my friends lived miles away from me, some even in other cities. What else can a poor boy do?

I grew up on Nintendo consoles, having everything from the NES to the Gamecube at some point in my life. Now, I am a PC gamer with a reasonable Steam library, a love of GOG and indie games, and a mechanical keyboard by eMachines from a time before laptops were everywhere.



The games I like generally have some immediacy to them - games that feel good to play or offer something that I determine to be satisfying.

Favorite games in no order: Shadow of the Colossus, Mark of the Ninja, Dishonored, Star Fox 64, UT 2k4, F.E.A.R.
I have many other games that I love to death, but these stand tall in my mind.

Genres I could never understand or get into are turn-based RPGs, most MMORPGs, and Sports games.
