I foolishly bought Overwatch while it was on sale. It's one of those games that always looked interesting, and basically everyone I know plays it, but the idea of playing with other people always put me off.
Which is weird really because I used to play World of Warcraft and I still play Tera now. Hell, now it turns out it's on PS4 I've even got a character on that. (But I can't get used to not using a keyboard. I need number and F keys, I can't chain the moves I need on a fucking controller.)
But people whinge on consoles. Really whinge. Reporting people for abusive language, soliciting private information and cheating just because they got shot kind of whinge. I think the only reason I decided to play it was because I locked down absolutely every form of communication I could beforehand. I can't even have friend requests right now ... which is okay because it's not like I ever get any anyway.*
I haven't dared actually play a mode involving all real people in Overwatch yet, but I've done like... three AI matches on medium? The weird thing is, I was expecting it to be some kind of offline botzone for people like me who're going "yeah... I have no idea what I'm doing" but all my teammates are real people, which is pretty cool. Even got PotG in the second match which was cool too, albeit confusing because mostly I was running around like a moron trying not to die. (Again. Look, staying alive beats the ridiculously long run to the capture point.)
I had a brief try of various characters in the training room and it turns out I play best with Soldier: 76. Old, grumpy... yeah, this isn't a surprise, is it?
* This may also have had something to do with the fact my PS4 wouldn't connect to PSN for over a year for absolutely no reason given it connected to the internet just fine ... but also probably has something to do with the fact I don't play games with other people anyway. I do have one friend on it though, from Twitter a long time ago.
