I wouldn't trust the numbers of either. But just from my personal experience with their matchmaking, Dota2's queues are so much longer than LoL's it gets to the point I don't want to play simply because of the waiting.

As far as difficulty, the things listed come in just about every team-oriented game. In truth, difficulty in Dota2 is coming to understand it's dated mechanics, a multitude of things you'll never find out just blindly playing the game. It gets to the point where the people I play with don't enjoy the game because of these things, and quite frankly, the community stinks so if you don't have people to play it with you won't enjoy it.

I'm not going to say a game's bad and I was really hyped for it myself, it's just a game that's really hard for me to suggest to anyone.

The only thing that stands out to me is the "may never be as popular as League of Legends". I don't think that to be true, truth be told dota 2 might boast more current active users than LoL already (not that its released from Riot only valve is transparent with the numbers). I've seen peaks over 340k players at a time and its still growing. I would be shocked if in a year from now Dota2 isn't twice as played as LoL. But I'm a little bias so who knows, maybe i'm wrong.

You win best top 10 list just because of this. Dota 2 is the most played game for 2012 for me and I'm hoping more lists include it once it becomes a "real" release.

NO.

THIS LIST IS ALL WRONG. WHERE IS THE INNOVATIVE AND ORIGINAL RESIDENT EVIL 6? WHERE IS THE TOTALLY NEW AND IMPROVED GAME THAT DARE SHAKE THINGS UP BLACK OPS 2? WHERE IS THE AMAZING 9/10 EPICNESS THAT IS DMmC EVEN THOUGH IT COMES OUT 2013 I DON'T CARE? WHERE ARE THE EA GAMES? WHERE ARE THE MOUNTAIN DEW GAMES? GRAFAFASDFASFD

Halo can stay, everything else must go. If redemption want's his big fat check to keep this site going he better knock some sense into his editors and accept. my Capom, EA, Squeenix, Konami, Activisions. bribes.

Geoff Keighley should also be on that list.
