Should I play a MOBA or an MMO?

The video gaming community is being bombarded with all kinds of crazy new terms and acronyms.  The hottest buzzwords in the gaming world right now are MOBAs & MMOs.  Which one is right for you?

A lot of websites would go over the pros & cons of each, and try to give you a balanced look at both sides of the story.  However, this girl is not like most websites.  I’m not going to BS you, I’m going to give it to you straight.

The answer is MOBA.

First off, the obvious: MMORPGs cost money.  You have to pay $50 just to install the game, and usually $15 / month after that.  That’s over $200 just to play the game for ONE YEAR.

MOBAs are free. You can play them as much or as little as you like without paying a dime (yeah that’s what free means!).

MOBAs are competitive.  The fights aren’t just determined by who’s higher level, you actually have to know what you’re doing.  And if you get sick of playing your character, guess what: you don’t have to spend hundreds of hours leveling a new one!  With an MMORPG, not only do you have to do just that, but you’ll also probably have to spend even more time getting gear and raising tradeskills.  YUCK.

Don’t waste your time with a boring, overpriced MMORPG.  Maybe if it’s free to play, and you’re just looking for something to do when you’re bored.  But if you want to play a real game, stick with MOBAs.
