Me, @IkaCZ, and @Bizkitdoh have all been playing regularly since the prerelease beta on Tuesday, and all been finding it really fun.
I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for quakeoid esque games with silly movement and rocket jumping, but Overwatch has an objective-focused and ability-focused type of gameplay which really quite works.
It’s very easy to get sucked into wanting to win a game especially when you’re working with friends, which is something that was not as easily found in games like TF2. 6v6 players makes it easy to feel like you’re actually an important part of the team, and then with a cast of pretty great characters designed almost MOBA style, I’m finding it a very pleasant experience so far.
Played a lot of Reinhardt at the moment, really like pushing the objective with a huge shield. He’s probably one of the easier heroes to pick up, but getting clutch firestrike and charge kills is always so satisfying. Having a big hammer to smack people with is really fun too. It’s a lot of fun to kill people playing as a class that isn’t entirely designed to do damage. (he also has a really fucking cool edgy black and firey skin)
I do enjoy Pharah too, there’s certainly some transferrable skills from TF2’s rockets, and Quake. I love me some rocket projectiles in fps games.
Definitely recommend people check it out while it’s free, it’s for sure a game people can have fun with even if you don’t play fps games!
