Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been playing a lot of Blizzard‘s new first-person shooter, Overwatch, and I can confidently say this game is going to shake up the genre in an amazing way. But my Overwatch journey started a long while ago.
Speak for yourself. At at 90 critic rating and 61 user rating compared to DOOM's 85 critic rating and 82 user rating on metacritic, I'll say DOOM is what FPS players were waiting for.
Overwatch has a huge hate train on it though like most big titles now, especially MP games.
Lol, please don't use metacritic or any review site to justify what game you prefer or is your favorite. I don't give two damns about Overwatch as it's a blantant ripoff of TF2 and the only "unique" thing it has done is added powers. The game is about as casual as Heroes Of The Storm which is no surprise considering Blizzard's library is aimed at a super casual audience. Always online is a terrible thing to have, as once the plug is pulled on the servers the game is dead forever. You don't need metacritic, IGN, etc to tell you these things. Overwatch is what the Angry Birds kind of gamers were waiting for, or the anime audience.
Seems like most causal FPS games now a days must have a "super" ability in there.
Yea because metacritic is a great indicator for a game lol.
really?? I have the game right now and I still find myself playing bf4.
sorry i prefer actual shooters, you know, without special abilities. where skill matters more than who your choose to play.
Sounds like someone sucks at the game.
The game I've been waiting for... Didn't Team Fortress 2 already get a platinum trophy for this genre of shooters?
Im having fun with the game but wtf is this: "It’s an oddly relieving feeling when you’re losing a match so devastatingly badly that you should be disheartened, but it doesn’t even matter because you’re having fun. It’s the perpetual smile on your face while you’re playing a match with your friends."? Cant remember a moment where I was getting my ass waxed and "perpetually smiling" at the same time bc playing with friends...
You sir clearly havent visited a dungeon.
I personally still prefer Halo. This game may be fun in its own way, but I am very sensitive to accurate visceral controls, which i found is not something this game focuses on. I like the feeling of mastering the sniper, jumping off a ledge, zooming in, and pulling off a headshot before landing.
But at the same time, if you were say in battlefield and u jumoed from a building sniped someone and parachuted out that would be even better, specially with the bullet drop
It would be great also, Battlefield is another good example of this, but not necessarily better. Pulling that off in Battlefield would require skill, but it's also a lot more improbable and it would be closer to a fluke. The climbing up to a building, parachuting down, accounting for the bullet drop, greatly reduces your chance of making the shot and the setup process just reduces the frequency of that happening even more. I would have to go through a lot of frustrating attempts to pull that off unless I'm ridiculously good. In Halo on the other hand, the controls are so tight you can practice and anyone with decent sniper skill can pull it off. Anyone with great sniper skill can pull it off even more frequently. I have done it many times and it's a lot less frustrating knowing I can just walk back up and try again withing 20 seconds. At the end of the day though, who am I to decide how much satisfaction a person gets from either of those. Both games are great offer their taste. I was just saying that from playing Overwatch, I did not find enough control precision and focus to practice with gunplay like that.
