This Girl's Guide to Computer Games
Computers aren't just for work. In fact, there's an entire world of video games just for your computer. Don't know where to start? Let me show you some popular genres!
I tried to keep these descriptions as broad as possible. Of course there's many variations and sub-genres of these genres. I just want to give you a taste of each, as well as examples.
Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG): You create a character, pick a class then try to outfit them with the best gear you can find while playing with your friends or other people from around the world.
Examples: World of Warcraft, Neverwinter
What I might say while playing: "I run around on my polar bear, with my phoenix, shooting lighting!"
Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA): Generally a team of 5 players vs another team of 5 players that try to control combat lanes by destroying turrets or other sorts of fortifications.
Examples: DOTA, League of Legends, Smite
"I have more assists than their team has kills!"
First Person Shooter (FPS): You and your team of guys has guns/weapons/explosions and there's another team of dudes with their own arsenal. Go kill the enemies! Complete objectives and capture strategic points!
Examples: Battlefield, Team Fortress 2
"WHO'S SHOOTING ME. WHERE'S IT COMING FRo- I'm dead."
Real Time Strategy (RTS): Ever wanted to control your own army? What about utilize every resource you have to it's fullest potential? RTS's are all about managing people, land and resources.
Examples: Starcraft, Civilization, Endless Legend
