I think there are so many titles coming out from so many sources that whatever genre your into your gonna find enough to keep you busy next year. Personally I'd like to see a run on rpgs and dungeon crawlers but that's not likely. I think my eggs will go in the rts basket when the tide of mobas subsides.

I hope next year will bring some new genre, no one of us herd about before.
Hm.. still have concern it might be Scarlet Blade type of mmo`s though.. and Jason only feed my fears.

My guess for next year would be TCG because blizzard will set the trend, More moba means moba games will gets better and more diverse than dota clones

I really think they should slow down on making a MOBA I mean theres way to many right now and theres a new MOBA coming out probably for the next 3 Months or so they gotta start making some new and unique MMORPG's out there like Wildstar MOBA is just way to many right now....

I personally don't think there can ever be too much of a game type. Especially if the game is free. Every time is a chance for innovation and hopefully if it is a crash a burn another game company to learn what people liked and didn't like.

What is too many MOBA's? is it the same as too many Shooters, RPG's, Simulator games, fighting, side scrollers, etc?

I find it completely ridiculous for people to complain about "FREE" games, because it isn't mandatory to spend money in these games and they're complaining about a SPECIFIC GENRE, at least complain why we don't have more Third Person View MOBA's...

I respect moba's that are coming out and willing to play them all. For people who only played one moba in their life, shouldnt talk.

Another great show F2P Cast.
Got a Da-Bomb for.... League of Legends. I'm normally an action combat type of gamer, so playing a MOBA never crossed my mind. My friend started playing League and a few days later invited me to play it. Well i made and account and started to play, I hated it very deeply. He told me I just have to find a character that fit me. After a few days of playing and uncountable deaths and swears later I purchased a character that looked very interesting to me. It was Syndra,I know try to squeeze at least one game into my day.
I hope RTS's are the genre of next year.
