Global Game Awards
League of Legends Heroes of Newerth DOTA 2 Guardians of Middle-Earth
Best MOBA

The Multiplayer Online Arena Battle is a highly competitive game genre that has really come into its own over the past five years. Although some classic MOBA titles spearheaded this new frontier of competitive gaming it is only in recent times that the entire world at some point or another is likely to have encountered this merciless game category.

This award is reserved for MOBA titles that are not just brand new but continuing to evolve or managing to maintain the attention of the masses. With the classics still being played as much today as they ever were, if they are good enough then they still have a right to command the prestigious nominee slot. Fast paced, unforgiving, complex to master are all traits that are attached to these incredible games and only the best reach the nominee status.

Heroes of Newerth
If you’re looking for something ridiculously deep and hugely competitive, then look no further than Heroes of Newerth. Offering classic MOBA gameplay with a massive roster of characters, this offers a refreshing take on the genre, and who can resist a game that now has a Samuel L. Jackson announcer pack?

Guardians of Middle-Earth
Guardians of Middle-Earth occupies a unique territory in the MOBA world, presenting a game that is accessible and inviting, easing you into what can be a hugely complex genre. Getting rid of much of the fraff from the genre and honing it down to its base gameplay, this Lord of the Rings take on the genre is an excellent and approachable experience that represents a great stepping off point for those interested.
