I’ve only played Overwatch a few times at a friend’s house (and it was on Xbox1), but i knew almost immediately that it wasn’t for me. It wasn’t really the game modes or TTK, because i’ve played many games that were very similar, and liked them.
It really wasn’t even the characters either, because even though my opinion is that Battleborn’s characters are more lively and unique, that doesn’t make Overwatch’s characters BAD. I mean, i did notice a disturbing lack of mentally-disturbed penguins, but it DID have a talking Gorilla, haha.
No, it’s just a classic case of “not for me”, and that doesn’t make Overwatch dull, boring, cliche, etc.; the same holds true for Battleborn, which didn’t “click” for all of my pre-Battleborn friends, several of whom love Overwatch. We don’t argue over which one is better, because it’s simply not something that can be argued, outside of financial gains and playerbase (both of which do not automatically make something “better”. Just look at McDonalds). Battleborn simply isn’t for most people, and while that may make it LOOK like an inferior game statistically, that doesn’t MEAN it’s inferior. This thread would exist even if Battleborn and Overwatch’s playerbase and “success” were reversed, because people just like to compare apples and lightbulbs for some reason. I didn’t care for the Attikus DLC aside from the rewards, but that doesn’t make it bad; i prefer the dialog and mission structure in the Toby DLC more, and many people don’t like that one. Different strokes for different folks, and no one’s opinion is wrong.
