Blizzard's most popular FPS, 'Overwatch' is dubbed as the mose gender-diverse FPS game in the world
I can see why it's popular with females. What other multiplayer fps has interesting female characters?
If you hate on Overwatch then you must not appreciate quality in FPS games
Seriously the dialogue between characters,skins,animations, and maps are so great in it and post launch dlc is fantastic
I look forward to the next seasonal event for years and years to come..
I agree I love OverWatch I play it on my PS4 and my PC so nice I bought it twice
"I can see why it's popular with females. What other multiplayer fps has interesting female characters?"
You fell for the trap, games are games & people play games, there's no need to cater to genders because people will play games regardless.
These "scientists" must be in works with Michael patcher, no shit.
I must be doing something wrong in my life if all it takes is to be obvious to make it in life
Shouldn't scientists be working on more important things, like a cure for cancer?
Too busy causing it.
Indirectly of course...
Yes, because scientists only have majors on medicine.
As opposed to majoring in female player counts in first person shooters, and comparisons thereof.
Nah, they got time in between discovering planets and not curing cancer.
Like no way
OverWatch is a ton of fun I think there's more people in general playing it than any other shooter game right now it's just so damn fun
There is close to 41% of female gamers to begin with.
"currently estimated at 41% in the 2016 report."
Clicking on the 2016 report brings up a PDF file.
On topic, good job Overwatch.
Well that would be cool if it wasn't inaccurate, most of the titles on their are smart phone games, that doesn't make you a gamer, just means your bored a lot. I really do want more females to game, but no reason to conflate stats.
Most play as Mercy, just saying....
I get there are many out there that play as other characters but for whatever reason most do play as mercy
Sounds like just the place to meet babes. Thx science, who needs the bar scene when we have overwatch.
"says scientist." I just imagine some dude in a lab coat just pouring over this highly relevant data.
If I see another Mercy montage I'm going to puke...
I can believe that. My ex plays it a lot and has a load of female friends she made over the ps4 due to it.
I personally, don't enjoy the game.
Wow, I didn't know women played games until you told me.
Brb, dropping someone off to a women's only bar & attending a men's only party.
This is prolly the wrong thing to be thinking about, but isn't it Blizzard's ONLY FPS! ... Kinda wins by default xD
And they all play Mercy.
