What do you guys with about Overwatch's microtransactions? What do you think about DLC altogether, and where do you draw the line when it comes to DLC?

Loot boxes are no different than MTG card packs and if you play the game enough to care about the skins you should have several dozen boxes. I think loot box with 4 grabs is more than fair for a buck. That's essentially a 0.25 USD per item.

CS and others do crates; H1Z1 is utter bullshit with their buy key to open an earned crate and get one of x items in said crate, maybe.

Angryjoe isn't a gamer he's a businessman. He captitalises on what people hate and forms his opinion around that and at the end of the day he's a pretender with a following.

I think the bigger issue is the actual game itself. To sell a game with such little content and to sway critics and websites through money and advertising is a scary thing. Overwatch is not game of the year, it's not groundbreaking, and it's not much better than Battleborn. Battlefront and SFV were strung up for their lack of content, even though they were gorgeous and had solid gameplay. Somehow Overwatch gets praised while making the same egregious errors.

It's because Overwatch is better than those games. That's all there is to it really.

Best multi-player fps to date in my opinion. More than enough characters and I have yet to grow tired of the levels. They are all very well done and its my impressions that none are better than the other.

I like all three games but you can easily see how OW exceeds in quality compared to both games.
