    "If you like FPS games multiplayer games, don't get this one. It's a stagnant franchise they keeps turning out turd after turd of a game. Don't give these people your money, play something else, spread the money around so we can get some new better games. If you played one Tom Clancy, you've played them all. "

WHAT’S THE MEANING?

Multiplayer Online Battle Arena or MOBA is a sub genre of strategy video games. It is a fusion of action games, role-playing games and real-time strategy games. But unlike RTS games, MOBA players do not construct their own bases or units. The most common goal of MOBA games is to destroy the opposing team's base or main structure. Other goals include defeating players on the opposing team, and improve their skills.

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that you can make one million dollars by playing video games? SumaiL Hassan does. Syed Hassan, a.k.a SumaiL, was living in Pakistan when he first played one of the best multiplayer games on PC. The game was Defense of the Ancients 2 or DOTA 2. The online MOBA video game's mystical characters and interactive gameplay captivated him. The fun MOBA game captivated him so much that he would ride motorbikes to go to a nearby internet cafe. Little did he know he was on the road to become one of the best professional gamers in United States. SumaiL is proof that anyone can achieve the modern American dream. It means you could too! Official multiplayer video game competitions or eSports are always on the lookout for new competitors. Your road to becoming a professional gamer starts by finding an MOBA game you like. Other than DOTA, other popular eSports games are League of Legends, Counter Strike, and Overwatch. Once you’ve found your favorite multiplayer game, it's time to log-in! Its not enough play a few hours a day though. Professional gamers were practicing eight hours a day even before they went pro. You can also even sign up for local gaming competitions. Who knows, your favorite professional gamer or eSports team owner might just be there to recruit you!

I think I may have seen a couple reviews saying Far Cry 4 is just a fresh coat of paint slapped onto the last installment, and I can see why they might think that. But after briefly testing out Primal I can say that I'm glad they did do a sort of revamp on the last game instead of taking it in a different direction; amazing gameplay. "
