    "I love playing games online, particularly with others, but my computer lacks the graphics capability that I need to play most games smoothly. Dota 2 is an awesome multiplayer game where you go on adventures with your team. Best of all (for me at least), you don't need a dedicated graphics card to play!"

    "Been playing DOTA ever since I was a kid, yelling at people in internet cafes. Seeing the second DOTA with better graphics that plays smoothly in even low-qual PCs is a dream come true for an old laptop owner like me"

    "Without a great graphics card, you will not be able to get the full effect of Dota 2. You may be able to get away with running it on very low settings, but you'll likely still see a negative impact on your gameplay."

    "When I'm looking for a good Windows 7 game, I often boot up DotA 2 on Steam. The successor to the popular Warcraft 3 map, it builds on the original idea in all sorts of interesting ways. It maintains all the complexity of the original version, unlike LoL which ended up dumbing down a lot of aspects to keep it easier for an audience to follow."

    "It takes me awhile to learn new video games, but I'm enjoying this one. I haven't even tried out all the different heroes yet. They're all free, so you can pick whichever one suits your personality. You can play with real people or with bots. At this point, I'm still learning the game so I mostly play with bots."

    "Ever since even in Dota 1, strategy has always been a very important component of the game. Like in ganking enemies, building the right items, and more. I think it really fits this page though for me I think this should go number 1. :("

XD Well, tbh this game isn't looking for casual players but it does has plenty of tools to help newbie players to learn more about the game. But there are times that new player go immediately into PvP matchmaking w/o taking some time to learn abt the basics of the game so they start hating on the game. lol"

    "DOTA 2, short for Defense of the Ancients 2, is a well-loved game in the MOBA genre. I had a lot of fun picking from the wide variety of heroes, though I generally stick to playing the carry role. Each game was new and unique, since I was matched with players from all over the world in each game. "

    "If you're like me and have only an intel integrated graphics card, you may think that all the best games are out of reach. Well, I felt that way until I played the recent Dota 2 game! Man, was I wrong! This thing loads flawlessly on my integrated chip and the graphics and gameplay are amazing! I can play it at full speed and one of my friends even asked if I'd upgraded my laptop! I just love the game, being a hero and all the battles but if you're looking for flawless high graphic gameplay that won't slow your integrated machine this one is it! "

    "Good suggestion! As a heavy Dota gamer, I think this is one of the best games you need to play with NVIDIA GeForce. Especially when ganks or clashes happen and skills are thrown out and its hard to identify anything with all the animation that happens. "

    "I think many will agree with me when I say Dota 2 is the best online battle multiplayer game. It's not a game for the light-hearted though coz players tend to be aggressive, expect to be trolled. It might also take a while for you to fully learn but once you do, you'll enjoy and probably get addicted to it for a while 😉"

It really isn't practical for this sort of application, though, because it's pretty intensive and distracting. It's easy to become over-absorbed in it, and work ends up on the back-burner. Not good at all for my purposes."
