As I near the end of my final semester of seminary, I’m starting to take a look at my schedule and make a few changes. Basically, I want to be utilizing my time better and taking on a couple projects that have been bouncing around in my head for some time now.
One of those projects is something I’m calling the Monday Night Noob (feel free to make me a cool graphic for this, internet!). As much as I love ping-ponging between LOTRO and RIFT, I really want to experience more in gaming and encourage myself to get out and try new things.
So every Monday evening I’ll be setting aside my mainstay games to try something completely new, a game I’ve never, ever played before. Maybe it’s a recent one, or an oldie, an MMO or something else, but I want to give more titles a try. I’ll be announcing my Monday Night Noob project that morning, and then have a follow-up post about my experience the next day.
As part of MNN, I really want to hear from you what you think I should try out. The only rule is that it has to be a game I haven’t laid hands on previously, and if it’s free (or has a free trial), so much the better. Also, I’m allowing for MNN games to woo me into playing past the one night; these aren’t necessarily one-shot events.
For my first MNN, I’m going to be dipping my toes into MOBAs with League of Legends. I’ve downloaded the client and Snafzg — who pwns religiously in LoL — has sent me a long list of starter tips, so I’m digesting those and will give it a whirl.
Any tips from you guys? And what games should I be looking at for future Monday Night Noob sessions?
