Should you play Overwatch?

For people who don’t know what Overwatch is its a team based first person shooter game created by Blizzard. Its not really your normal type of shooter every character has its very own abilities and ultimates that you use to help your team win. You start off the game by joining a team of six with each player selecting a hero and a role. There is an Offensive, defensive, tank and support roles which players choose to work together to capture or defend depending what side you’re on and the one who does it the best wins. Or you might get to escort a payload and whoever makes it farther wins the game.

Overwatch has tons of game modes like quick play usually for casual players, arcade mode where people can create their own custom games and competitive mode where you receive a rank and play with people around your skill level. The game has won many awards as The Best Game of the Year Award, The Game Award for Best Esports Game and many more. I feel the reason why this game is doing so well mainly because of the great community that it has its a game that really promotes working together and being positive even though you can get some toxic people from time to time. Blizzard really does do a great job of keeping the game fresh by doing limited time events and new competitive seasons.

You can earn tons of gear for your favorite Heroes like emotes, victory poses, sprays and player skins. You can also earn a special gold gun for heroes by winning games in Comp season. You earn a rank in Comp season by playing 10 matches which put you in a specific rank like Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Master and Grandmaster. They also have started an Overwatch League where pro Overwatch players compete and the games are streamed on Twitch almost every week.   If you’re the type of person that loves competitive team based games then you will definitely want to try Overwatch they also do free to play weekends sometimes where you can try the game out for free. I feel like Blizzard really found a way to please the casual and competitive side of a gamer by having so much variety. So remember to look out for those free plays days and give it a try its available for console Xbox, Playstation and PC.
