League of Legends can be fun (and addicting) if you wanna try that.
That game is built on fail. I played it for a few months and can't stand it anymore...
Basically think of a game where you are preset to play with certain people that are utterly terrible. Their matchmaking system gives everyone a certain rating and balances each team based on those rating. Funny thing is it usually balances a few high end people with incredibly unexperienced players and vice versa.
If it wasn't for that atrocious matchmaking system i would say give it a try, but i can't now... please just stay away from it.
Ignore this guy.
League of Legends is one of the best team-oriented games ... ever
I've been playing since closed beta, and since release my record is something like 175-165 ... Over 300 games. The Matchmaking system is not perfect, but it's generally awesome. Most of the time, it puts new players against other new players, and more experienced players against more experienced players. There is a hidden ELO score (think WoW arena, but you can't see your score) so it keeps you in the right category of game.
If you have friends to game with, it's easy to get them to play LoL with you - because it's free! It's actually one of the best implementations of a Free2Play model that I've seen in any game to date. Put simply, the only thing you can not get for free are skins, which are purely cosmetic. Everything else in game, and notably anything that actually affects gameplay, can be unlocked either by earning "influence points" (which you get for playing, win or lose) or by spending real money. Most people I play with have spent $20 on the game just to support the company, because most people are in love with the game.
League of Legends is amazing. It's truly the best thing to enter the gaming scene in years. When you start playing, you end up against new players and the basics are easy to pick up in an hour or two... and after hundreds or thousands of hours, you'll see that it's an incredibly deep and complex multiplayer experience.
