Overwatch

It's been a while since I've written anything here, despite playing a decent amount of games. Time isn't as freely available as it used to be, so, yeah.

One of the better titles this year has arrived in the form of Blizzard's new team based FPS, named Overwatch. This is an extension of the old Team Fortress genre games, but with a bigger variety of classes to play, and abilities I'd suspect being slightly more influenced by the MOBA-genre than FPS.

I have to admit to not being the biggest fan of these type of team FPS games in general, so I figured it'd be nice to actually write something about a positive entry into the genre that I suspect most people would actually enjoy.

The decent amount of different characters is what appeals the most in my view. Each of the characters have very distinct playstyles, so the chance of you finding something you like to play is very high, even if you're not a hardcore FPS fan. The beauty of it is that for the hardcore FPS fans, there are classes playing to their strengths as well, but you can be just as effective for your team if you don't have the twitch-skill of an energy-drink fueled teenager.

I enjoy playing supportive classes in most games, and this is no different - I'll usually run around with my healing beam trying to keep everyone alive, but switching to other support classes or even some damage ones as needed by our team.

So, even if you're not a hardcore FPS fan, I'd still recommend giving this a try - it's a blast to play, and you're more than likely to find something that suits the way *you* like to play games in general.

The game is out now on Overwatch - PC Overwatch - Xbox One and Overwatch - PS4
