Ive been having a blast watching overwatch league. Havent been getting any work done :/. Game of the generation for me.

I don't get what's so fun about watching g this game. It gets pretty rote..

Dynaste Vs Dallas fuel was actually fun to watch. After that it’s been pretty much meh with barely any variation in rosters. It is the same dive comp over and over ans Junkertown’s pirate ship comp as well

If you dont play it then sure I guess lol. Thats really any game though. I dont play league or dota, so watching those are pretty "rote(?)"

Ummm.. GTAV is the gold standard if we're going by sales and online activity.

slate91243d ago

But one could argue that it came out last gen lol

Christopher243d ago

Doesn't matter when it came out. It's still charting on both sales charts and online playtime charts. And it's beating Overwatch on PS4 for online play, which means it's likely beating it elsewhere as well.

That's an exaggeration if I ever heard one

Maybe if they said e-sports standard, but yeah.. big time.

Witcher says hello. And TLOU

"model on how to build a fun and reliable multiplayer game"

Multiplayer games not single player games. Overwatch has no single player so I don't know why you are bringing those games up.

Dear god no, its not really that good.

porkChop244d ago

It's really not. It hasn't set any kind of standard. It's a fun game that needs more content.
