Overwatch is a dumbed down TF2 aimed at people who suck at FPS games. The only reason it's popular is because of that sweet Blizzard cash promoting it.
I've played it a bit, enjoyed it, it's a fun game, but I'd agree with you, and the userbase is pretty shitty, moba playerbase overlapped with FPS players with an average age of 12.
Basically instant gratification Blizzard game.
believe it or not, TF2 has a much higher skill ceiling.
Different guy here;
Agree with what is said. But Bliz has always dumbed down ideas to expand on them. Warcraft is just any RTS with streamlined mechanics, same for Star Craft and they are both dying
Hearthstone is MTG for tards, its broken, and the player base is self hating.
HotS is DOTA.
OW is TF2 but flashier
All in all this is nothing new, but Bliz at least supports their games with bimonthly updates and quality expansions. Maybe not so much WoW. But for the most part they deliver more than any of you fucks.
Mei is the reason OW does well. No one cares about the game, they care about their waifus. And mei's thicc ass has me rolling tobjorn every time.
Yeah sure. Literally the most cancerous character keeps it alive
Overwatch is essentially a FPS MOBA
What is the most popular game type in casual & professional gaming? MOBAs
You're a moron dude
That's like saying every game is bad cause the company promotes it.
Did you even read what I typed, faggot? I didn't say Blizzard was the problem, I said Blizzard was the very reason it's popular. Advertising and money made this waifu simulator a damn e-sport that people momentarily care about.
Lmao Blizzard knows exactly what the fuck they're doing. Diverse character backgrounds and now some are fags. I'd be shocked if they don't add more anthropomorphic heroes to get the furfags. Pander to ALL the groups!
>But for the most part they deliver more than any of you fucks.
A major company that specializes in gaming does more for their own games than 4chan posters? You're a genius anon
There is great wisdom behind this anon's post. I am inclined to agree. By the end of the day who gives a fuck? So long as they keep generating their revenue they're going to continue to follow these trends. Smart on their part.
I play tf2 maybe once a month. I do miss the olden days though, not gonna lie.
Damn. I understand that feel dude. I guess times change, new fads begins, old fads die. I can definitely see a little bit of an oversimplification with the player mechanics in Overwatch and wish they added a few advanced features. Do you think TF2 is reaching it's twilight years or do you think there will be a revival?
I loved TF2, I now switched to Overwatch because of TF2's dying fanbase. It is easier than TF2 in some aspects but I don't think it's dumbed down honestly.
It's been a lot since i last played tf2, but the game just has much more to offer than ow, More guns, more gamemodes, a higher skill ceiling, and last but not least, much, MUCH more cosmetics
PS: The ow is cancer too, full of fags who problably visit 9fag gaming daily
PSS: And the tf2 comunnity is bunch of cunts that judge each other based on cosmetics
"ayy lma onoob u hav no unusual xdddd"
TF2 will always have someone playing it. It's free, fun, and you don't need a crazy setup to run it well. Valve devotes a very small amount of resources to it's upkeep and development so I really doubt there will be a revival. Fingers crossed for Team Fortress 3 someday.
TF2 is like a less creative version of Overwatch. They have shitty graphics less gameplay quality, more cheaters and people who play it have littler dicks on average. The only reason it's popular is because more Asians play it than overwatch because most of the little dick population promotes it so it attracts people with little dicks.
> Overwatch has Deliver payload, King of the Hill, and Attack/defense
You wot m8
Also you can't fucking steal King of the God Damn Hill, thats been around for fucking ever, and attack/defend points is a game mode thats fucking *everywhere.* Even fucking counter strike has attack/defend points, they just threw a bomb into the mix to disguise the 'you stand on the point until you win the game' part.
Then by your logic TF2 pretty much blatantly stole fucking everything from the Quake series seeing as to how it started out as literally just a fucking Quake mod. lol! Can't believe people like you exist.
>'you stand on the point until you win the game'
Unranked silver extravaganza
>Tfw you can't play in a party because shitty matchmaking
>Tfw you don't get to rage because some unusual-sporting cunt wanted to pubstomp
>Tfw you can't invite friends mid-game to fuck with pubstompers
>Tfw all the cool community maps are on "friendly only" servers so faggot admins kick you if you're not autistic enough to spend 6 hours doing the conga and chatting with the weeaboos
tf2 butthurt fags spitting on ow for it's ressemblance and shitty toxic vocal community, also because of the "SJW non-oppresive list" of heros
there's truth, but need details
honestly, tf2 had as much toxicity, but since you don't have only 6 players to work together instead of 32 slots (usually) servers of people randomly doing shit on their own, they wouldn't start flaming at each other that much, altho it is true that more popularity means more of those fags
"but comp is different!"
comp is cancer in both games if you don't have a pre-made, admit it
also, both games and actually most games in the world ripped off quake mechanism if you really want to go that far
I wanna argue with you, but I use those exact words once per game, and my go-to binds for when someone kills me are "*gasp* h-he's fast!" And "This is the most powerful [S T A N D] user I've faced!"
Okay, I'll bite. What are some great games to you?
