Analog Addiction writes, "The multiplayer online battle arena genre (I didn’t choose the name), commonly abbreviated as just MOBA, has traditionally been a PC only affair. League of Legends and DOTA 2 dominate the market share, but SMITE released last year on PC, offering a different experience. The MOBA genre has tried to make its way to consoles, with notable attempts being the Lord of the Rings themed Guardians of Middle-earth, and the 2D Awesomenauts. However, neither title really took off. SMITE is different though; it bridges the gap between consoles (specifically Xbox One) and PC by offering the most accessible version of the genre that works with a controller."
