"World of Warcraft" is a massive multiplayer online role-playing game that allows the player to create his own character and live in the fantasy world of Azeroth. The game offers 13 races and 11 classes to choose from. Players can then further customize their classes by investing points in talents. Each class has three combat specializations that sometimes change the combat role of the character. For example, a protection paladin can serve as a tank, a holy paladin can serve as a healer and a retribution paladin can serve as a damage dealer.

Valve's "Counter Strike: Global Offensive" is an online first person shooter. The game pits a terrorist team and a counter-terrorist team against each other in a wide variety of maps. The teams can win rounds by either completing the objectives of the map or by eliminating the opposing team. Players earn money based on their performance. At the beginning of each round, the game allows players to buy new equipment and ammunition with their money.

"Dota 2" is a multiplayer online battle arena in which two teams of five-players fight against each other. The teams have bases on the opposing ending of the arena and try to destroy the base of the other team while defending their own. The first team to destroy the other's base wins the game. Players control one of the 111 hero characters that have their own abilities. Players earn gold by killing enemies and can use the gold to buy new items that make their heroes stronger.
