Watch it boy! I lived and breathed Halo for most of my young adult life. Don't bring your prejudice into this holy land of brothers. This is a place for comradely cooperation, not judgement. 


PC MASTER RACE PART 2

LISTEN BUDDY IF YOU REALLY WANT TO GET INTO THIS SAY IT TO MY GAMEPAD AND NOT ONLINE AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS

 

I'm just kidding, hahaha. Some other shizzies and I were in a PC master race argument re: Overwatch this morning and I was being a goof. Personally, I like both for their own reasons, and think the whole debate is beyond dumb. Just like the NESkimos and the Minibosses.

I'm generally average at best at FPS multiplayer. I've had some REALLY good matches in Destiny, but mostly average or bad. The way I justified it is that the regular PC version is only $40, and if I play one match with each character that's <$2 per match which isn't the worst if I didn't like it. 

 

Overwatch is pretty simple on the surface with a lot of complexity in the match ups between characters, but really, you can get by without thinking too hard, at least I can so far. You may be surprised how effective you can be with some characters. Offensive characters are probably the hardest to use for someone who is not good or confident at FPS games, because those are the people that have to shoot. But you can use a tank like Reinhardt who's roll is very defensive, utilizing a giant shield to do nothing but block fire for your teammates and wielding a big hammer to smash when enemies get to close.

Do you guys think this will turn into game you'll come back to over the years?

 

I want to play stuff with shizz brethren but I basically never pay full price for a game.

 

Heard it's pretty fun, and blizz games are super high quality.  Speaking of which I need to play more brood wars with shizz.

Reinhardt, Winston, Lucio and Mercy don't require any serious level of accuracy to be effective. They're actually some of my favorite characters to play!

Keyword there is accuracy. Yes, you dont need to shoot a gun, butwe can all agree  you need to have very good gamesense.

I respectfully disagree that controllers aren't good for FPS games (any of them).  But I might get this on PC, because I don't have a current gen console.  I tried the demo and enjoyed it, although it's far more complex than I anticipated.  Bit of a learning curve given how many characters there are and how different they all are.  But it seems balanced.  Anyway, yes, from what little I've played of it, it's a game I'd come back to years later.

I love this game, at level 35 already. Torbjorn is the best.
PS4 is also the coolest version.

Halo is a very good example of an FPS designed entirely around gamepad controls. Almost every weapon is direct-hit if not outright hitscan (so aim assist can work), most dangerous enemies have shields (so there's almost no need for localized damage), levels are almost entirely horizontal and encounters are designed around moving from cover to cover in large open-ended arenas.


It's a fantastic game whose legacy should be on par with Goldeneye, and it saddens me to no end how everyone copied only its most superficial elements ("2 weapons, autoaim and regenerating health") without truly understanding what made it so good.

Overwatch, like TF2 before it, has a lot of gameplay mechanics that are *hostile* to gamepad controls (Pharah and Junkrat come to mind -- although note that they're not as gamepad-unfriendly as their TF2 equivalents, thanks to Pharah's shift and Junkrat's after-bounce on-hit grenade detonation). Please don't mischaracterize my arguments as PCMR wank.

 

It kinda is PCMR wank, though. I mean this is an argument that the PC controls are objectively better. In reality, it's your preference. I prefer a gamepad.

No. My argument is that the keyboard and mouse are an objectively better control method for FPSes.

I have actual data to base that argument on, because making competitive first-person shooters has been my day job for the last 2 years. I can't share the data (NDA :( )), but if you're interested, I can discuss the reasons that make KB+M controls better for FPSes (they mostly have to do with speed, aiming accuracy and aim assist interfering with the player's decision-making) and RTSes (speed, accuracy and monstrous multitasking), or gamepads for a lot of other genres (analog > digital for movement control). It's probably warrant a separate thread so as not to pollute that one.

I'm also surprised and disappointed that you guys keep assuming wankery on my part. This is the Shizz, not /b/ -- we're supposed to be among friends here.

(of course, if you want the wankiest argument that PC controls are objectively better for Overwatch, here it is: you can play the PC version with a console controller)
