For those who still enjoy Overwatch: Why?


#10

For the same reason I enjoyed it a year ago.

Itโ€™s a great game.


#11

It is fun.

I stopped playing it seriously (comp) so my rank dropped a bit, but itโ€™s a lot easier to play a game when you play for fun instead of for imaginary points.

9/10 games in overwatch (in every gamemode) are absolute garbage. Curb stomp, someoneโ€™s toxic, someoneโ€™s throwing, you name it. But that 1/10 games is so good, everyone gets along, itโ€™s a good game, the losers arenโ€™t mega salty, and it is bliss. That 1/10 games is why I still play this game.


#13

I still need to get five achievements.

i enjoy playing the game with my 2 children, 1v2. Hearing their squeals of laughter as they beat me (which has become increasingly frequent) and talking about the game just binds us together. I am pretty much a nerd and my job is very physically demanding with me working 361 days a year, 10-12 hours a day. So this is the best form of father-children bonding we can think of whereby i am resting yet doing an activity together.

Outside of family play time, i have not really played much, if at all, since September 2018 although i was pretty much clocking in 2-3 hours daily since March. It is not because i do not enjoy the game but because towards the end of the year, things get really busy for me. Also, Soul Calibur 6 got released and i was building a new PC.

Why do i enjoy the game? Well, it is the human element. Years of gaming versus AI in single player games, one can and will notice a pattern displayed by the AI and it becomes easy to beat once that pattern is discerned and analysed. It is all a matter of execution and planning. The sense of anticipation and adjusting-on-the-fly is gone.

On the other hand, real life sports, such as basketball when i was still playing is full of moments of instant decision making, adjustments, and of course, that sense of fulfilment from having satisfied oneโ€™s competitive nature.

While there are other games which do that such as CS:GO, OW is unique because of its MOBA-ish style of play and I really do like that because it is very much akin to a cRPG FPS style.

FUN!

I still enjoy it, sure there are bad matches and toxic players but also great ones with superbly friendly players.

Plus, stumbling across the Overmoji Cafรฉ bunch gave me a renewed passion for the game, its always more fun with friends :smiley:


#16

Because it gives me pain and suffering like no other game can. :joy:


#17

I just turn off my brain, go to AI mode and start killing things, and it also deal with rpg class elements that I enjoy in mmorpgs. But most of all, I enjoy the social aspect. If I didnโ€™t care about the social aspect, I would play Sword Art Online: Fetal Bullet or Monster Hunter World solo. I just get far too addicted to MMORPG if I do play them, so I try to avoid them.

When I donโ€™t want to kill things, I play Stardew Valley, My Time in Portia, and Cities: Skyline.

Other than that, I have hundreds of games backlog. Still didnโ€™t finish all my Assassin Creed games, and waifu/weeb games.


#18

I still enjoy Overwatch because itโ€™s still enjoyable. Pro tip, if you lose multiple matches in a row or get pissed off after a match, go do something else. Play quickplay, eat a bagel, make a bagel, pet a dog, buy a dog, drive around, sleep, nap, play Minecraft, etc.

Breaks are an essential part of why I enjoy Overwatch. It keeps me from playing tilted so that I donโ€™t get reported and so that I can focus on doing well in the game, not on how much I want to strangle that one a**hat who was a toxic pos in my last game.


#19

My drive at becoming better at the game. I know I can be better what keeps me playing is knowing I can be better.


#20

I havenโ€™t come across any toxic people, and I have been playing consistently well with Hanzo recently.


#21

Trying to get decent with multiple heros drives me. Currently on my 15th golden gun. Need 4 more to satisfy my completionary needs on the heros I hope to master one day. Love Comp even though it can be frustrating. You just learn to make the most of it and have fun.


#22

As long as I donโ€™t play competitive and play during events I have fun.

When an event ends I donโ€™t touch overwatch. And even during this event the max I ever give is hour to an hour and a half of playtime.

For me this is not a game you can or should put in Skyrim/Witcher amounts of play time cause the repetitive grind getz noticeable.

Iโ€™m having fun and getting great lootbox drops. Also I play other games way more than I
OW


#23

Becauae FFA is fun

Almost everything else is garbage though.


#24

Mercy. I was never into shooters before Overwatch but Mercyโ€™s playstyle reminds me of healing in WoW (which I use to love for years).


#25

The game play pulled me in and the friends Iโ€™ve made keep my coming back.

Also, itโ€™s the steady release of heroes, maps, events and content that keep me here. I like seeing how the game evolves as the new heroes are released and the meta/players adapt. A lot of people donโ€™t like that because they donโ€™t like falling behind when theyโ€™re not here to play, and thatโ€™s understandable. But itโ€™s the thing that keeps me hereโ€ฆ itโ€™s just fun.

Plus Iโ€™m slowly improving (just placed about 100sr shy of platinum after winning -all- of my placement matches, damn that felt good).

Iโ€™m still thoroughly enjoying this game.


#26

I still enjoy it because of one reason

i dont play competitive

I play allot of arcade and qp when i have spare time and i happen to play other games aswell, only playing overwatch longer if there is an event for grinding lootbox.

I noticed people who created goodbye overwatch thread/post are the ones who play comp and got frustrated about the meta and SR etc.

Eating too much of the same food will make you grow sick of it!


#27

Iโ€™ve been burnt out.

Itโ€™s a fun game to goof off on, but after getting defeat three times in a row because of a lucky Hanzo arrow or something I just get flustered.


#28

I turn off voice and text chat then imagine everyone else playing are incredibly human-like AI.

Lots of fun if I just pretend itโ€™s a single player game.


#29

Honestly, itโ€™s really good.

The hero balance may not be perfect, but really itโ€™s pretty good outside a couple of really broken exceptions. Most games are fun except when your team is all terrible, but thatโ€™s not that common. Really, other multiplayer games have drastically worse and more common issues.
