Today is the It's All About Fun blogfest hosted by Alex Cavanaugh.
These are just a few of the many (MANY) games I play--both outdoor and electronic. Some of the games I love aren't for everyone but they sure are for your kids, so if you have any (or you're a kid at heart) then gather 'round and let the fun begin.
League of Legends
If you're a fan of the original Warcraft III Frozen Throne, then you've probably heard of a little custom game called DOTA (Defense of the Ancients). This is a MMO where you and your team select a hero and defend your king from the enemy team. Yes, it has some (vague) similarities to chess. The difference, however, is that each champion has signature abilities and styles--and as they level (max 25), you must equip them in magical gear or risk being trampled by your foes.
For many years the game has remained unchanged.
Until League of Legends...
League of Legends is a production of a California based software company called Riotgames, and was developed by the minds behind DOTA. It blends elements of RPG and MMO, for a unique game play experience. Here, you play the role of a summoner and while you must still choose a random champion, you can customize their play style with Runes and Masteries, which enhance their stats, and summoner spells that give the game a bit of variability. What truly makes this game standout are the characters.

I do not care that it is a game for kids. I have loved it since day one and still do twelve years later. I have outgrown many of my child hood fads--action figures, Yu-Gi-Oh, watching cartoons, etc.-- but Pokemon excites me to no end. I guess it's the idea that I can own a pet (I love animals) and train it to kick ass! Either way, Pokemon remains one of televisions's most successful cartoons, and the video games rake in billions for Nintendo with every new release.
This MMORPG PVPvsPVE is similar to Warcraft - from it's play style to the UI (User Interface - controls); however, unlike WOW, Aion boasts the most impressive graphics of its generation and an addictive list of classes that will never cease to amaze.
Did I mention you can fly at Lv 10?
It follows the struggle of the Deavas, humans gifted with magic and the power of flight. The great mother Aion created dragons called Balaur to protect the world.

But they slowly became aware of man's weakness and defied their duties--destroying everything in hope of claiming the world of Aion as their own. To combat them, Aion gifted humans with the power of Daevas and a great war ensued. The world was torn as a result of this battle.
At the character screen you have to choose which faction to join: the feral and powerful Asmodians with black wings, fangs and manes, or the beautiful white winged Elyos. Either way, you will have to battle against the other in impressive aerial battles worthy of World War I. The fate of the world rests in your hands, but you will soon discover there is a far more terrible threat then the Elyos or Asmodians.
Aion is a MUST for any avid fan of MMORPGs.
