League of Legends: A multiplayer online battle arena video game, where two teams of five players battle in ‘player versus player’ combat, with each team occupying and defending their half of the map. Each of the ten players controls a character known as a ‘champion’, with unique abilities and differing styles of play.

Overwatch: A team-based multiplayer first-person ‘hero shooter’ video game, that assigns players into two teams of six, with each player selecting from a large roster of characters known as ‘heroes’, with unique abilities and differing styles of play. Teams work to complete map-specific objectives within a limited time period.

Rocket League: A vehicular soccer video game where players control a rocket-powered car and use it to hit a ball that is much larger than the cars, towards the other team’s goal area to score goals, in a way that resembles indoor soccer, with elements of a ‘demolition derby’.
