On a idle thumbs (maybe even the dota today podcast) a few weeks ago, someone brought up the fact that many people who don't play MOBAs seem to cultivate an irrational hate toward them.
So, do you hate MOBAs and if so, why?
Even if I maintain a morbid interest in this genre of games by listening to the dota today podcast and watching the daily dota, I've always had a sense of unease that prevented me from actually playing them. The same sense that kept me away from MMOs(for the most part). That sense is triggered when Brad and others say stuff like ''I would be happy playing only this game for the rest of my life'' or ''I played for 13 hours straight last Sunday''.
Let's take dota 2 as an example. Even if I never played it I know it's a good game. It might even be great or awesome but it's certainly not of a high enough quality to relegate every other game or other thing you might want to do on a Sunday to a ''Meh'' status. No, dota 2 a good game but it's also very good at massaging a certain part of the brain and I don't like my brain massaged in that particular way.
