The Best Video Games Of This Console Generation (Late 2013-2020)

#5. Overwatch (2016)

Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch
Genre: Esports, Multiplayer PvP Shooter

Just when you thought esports was going to stay stagnant with MOBAs and, well, more MOBAs, along comes this gamechanger. Blizzard’s first-ever shooter introduces the co-op hero shooter genre which has traces of Team Fortress 2’s DNA, but is generally its own beast. The modes were plentiful. The 20+ roster was full of great playstyles that cater to both casual shooter fans/Call of Duty players (Mercy, Reinhardt, Soldier 76) and hardcore twitch shooters/Quake & Unreal veterans (Zenyatta, McCree, Sombra).

The casual and competitive systems were (mostly) fun and tweaked on a monthly basis to placate shooter fans. And its impact was so ginormous, other companies wanted to make their own hero-filled shooter with most of them failing hard. You won’t see Rainbow Six: Siege, Apex Legends, and Valorant doing what they’re doing now if it wasn’t for the existence of Blizzard’s magnum opus shooter.

On the flipside, lootbox and gacha activities are prevalent in US$60 price tag titles thanks to Overwatch. You win some, you lose some.

Next: “It always ends like this.”
