Mono Game Advice

Hello Reddit. I've been programming in C# for about five years now, with the last year being professionally (using ASP.NET MVC), and by now I know quite a bit about the language. I enjoy web development very much, but my long standing passion is video games. I want to be a video game developer. I took a class on XNA in college and thought it was awesome. My coworkers are suggesting if I want to create a game that Unity is the way to go. But Unity doesn't interest me all that much. And from what I've read, Mono Game is just XNA now that Microsoft stopped supporting it. Maybe this subreddit isn't the best for this post, but really all I'm asking is:

Has anyone here used Mono Game? If so, would you recommend it? For those who have used both Mono Game and Unity, which do you prefer and why?

I will probably repost in another subreddit with more specific questions to game development, but right now I'm just looking for generic opinions.
