Meh, I was pretty underwhelmed by what I played of Overwatch. Just feels like an evolution of TF2 which, while not a bad thing at all, doesn't feel as unique as something like R6: Siege which I still haven't managed to pry myself from. Different strokes, I guess.
Mediocre may have been a little harsh but I would consider them around 8's were as bayonetta I would consider a 9 and 8's just don't cut it for breaking an addiction to one game
(The amount of 9's and 10's so far this year has made me very jaded towards a lot of prefectly fine games)
I played quite a bit more, for the skin events, and I wish I was into just playing it without an incentive to play like leveling up for loot crate rolls. I don't even bother with the events anymore. I think I'm around level 8 or something. When they removed the restarting from level 1 to get fast loot boxes it just made me want to stay low level to try for a box or two on events. I never got to get as high as 100 but the fact that I get nothing for starting over now just makes leveling not worth it outside of events for me.
If and when they start focusing on a ton of PVE and maybe even go into story and raids I'll look into getting into it. Destiny 2 may be that thing though. I never played Destiny 1 so that will be interesting.
Play whatever you want OP, but try and step away from a game you're hung up on from time to time or else you might miss out on some really great games. I did that with FFXI and am still catching up with all the great games I missed between 2003-2005.
I had more fun in one PUBG round than the entirety of my time in Overwatch.
For a good while I kept playing just to chase those lootboxes, luckily I've snapped out of it and went on to play more interesting things.
I'm sick of Overwatch... It seems like there needs to be a fad, and I can never tell if it annoys me because I can't escape it or because it's undeserved. Sometimes it's easy to tell, like when I wanted everyone to shut up about Breaking Bad. That was an objectively awesome show, I had simply reached my limit with having it shoved in my face unintentionally and constantly.
With Overwatch, I think it's genuinely overrated and simply something decent rather than special. Team Fortress 2 has been there and done that, Blizzard just put more effort into its pandering than Valve. I loved the beta and pre-ordered the game during it. Between that and the gold edition of The Division, among others, it was a bad year for me when it came to digital game purchases.
For anyone who is sick of everything except Overwatch, but getting burned out on Overwatch, Titanfall 2 needs some love! That was my GotY for 2016 honestly, and then EA had to send it out to die... It doesn't even have a real F2P model included with the purchase price <3
I used to have the overwatch sickness. I have around 300+ hours in, and have reached the point where the game is pretty much only fun if I am playing with friends not taking it seriously. Competitive mode is a nightmare if you take it seriously which I do more than I would like to admit. Now I feel I have fully escaped its grasp with playing persona 5 and FFXV getting me back into single player games.
And as a Street Fighter V player with dozens of moves and combos per character and pretty deep mechanics, I can't help but see Overwatch as a simple, shallow experience where you aim the thing at the thing and pull the thing, wash, rinse, repeat.
