The Game of Risk

Risk is something present in a lot of Video Games. The way it appears may differ. We might be speaking of putting all of your in-game savings on the line in a questionable gambling mini-game, or attempting to act “beyond the call of duty” in a mission, in order to either win more, or simply for the satisfaction of “winning”. Risk-taking has been tackled in a number of ways. Some people may take too high a risk constantly (these might be excitement seekers) or those who never take any risks, in order to preserve their status quo. This of course translates into Video Games as well, since almost every single game will force some type of choice.

Now, to make it absolutely clear, these champions will be annoying through their abilities, not simply due to their visuals or name. At the same time, only because a champion could be annoying does not mean that the player you might end up facing will know how to be “annoying”. In order for you to understand what I mean by “annoying” each champion I speak of will have an explanation of his spot on the list.

So, let us begin!
