Overwatch's system of freely picking heroes at anytime is interesting for a fully coordinated team of 5 friends, but for any other situation, it's a source of endless toxicity.
99% of my wasted games are because of horrible or troll picks.
At some level, it's the game design of the game in itself that's causing toxicity, and I realized I could do nothing about it.
I had enough of it, and simply got into HotS. HotS quickplay automatically balance the teams with whatever pre-picked heroes you selected before queuing, which makes it 10 times more fun than OW quickplay ever was. Not to mention the ranked play that separate your solo rank and team rank, causing less aggravation.
the addiction was strong, like playing a hour everynight relieved me off stress, playing for glory mode was my downtime, my comfort time.
it was kinda of hard to stop until Zelda botw came out,
Spec Ops: The Line, on the other hand, ruined most of the games that I played shortly afterwards that involved shooting/killing humans like Uncharted and especially Bioshock: Infinite. It rendered them pointless, but it was mostly because of how the former deconstructed the way I see those kind of games.
Maybe try games that have a similar formula? Counter Strike GO, DotA, League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, etc.
Funny enough, I played nothing but Persona 5 the entire month of April. Wanted to plat it, now I'm back to Overwatch. The loveable cast of characters really goes a long way. Gotta get those dance emotes for Sym and Zen.
This is me, but with Persona 5. I can't play anything else, for the sake of me. I think that game killed gaming for me.
I had a TF2 sickness, so I understand. It's all I could play for a very, very, very, long time. Like, over 2 thousand hours. The first several months of OW I was all over it. Burned out a lot sooner than anticipated.
no idea but since last may i didnt play any other game (more then 1-2 day).
In terms of completion just finished Bayonetta1 and thats it. Even tried Dmc4 after people said its like bayo1(it is not so boring and slow and outdated after it)
I tried bunch of games all supposedly had good ratings etc like Dishonored,DMC4,Resident evil6,CoD Ghosts,SF5 etc
Does anyone have overwatch sickness as well,not like i play game daily so much its just that if i play video game i play overwatch. Like i didnt played game for weeks missed most of last event etc but that doesnt change it
It was a fun ride to the end, but once I feel I reach my maximum ability with each character, as well as not making large jumps in CP, the loot boxes were the only thing I felt I had left to "aim for".
I did, because we are here for one man... Almagro! Follow my lead!
Which one of you gave good ratings to CoD Ghosts?
It's always temporary though; and much shorter than we first expect... at least for me it always was.
Even though same games are very special sometimes, I always like to play new things, see new settings, know new characters, a new story, and more importantly: new gameplay mechanics. The variety multiple games provides is what makes this hobby never boring!
