Could Blizzard pull off a first person shooter? Even with its track record, it seemed like a valid question. Hoo boy, what a waste of energy that question was. I should have been asking, "How will first person shooters change after Blizzard makes one?" That's a much more interesting question. Overwatch is certainly a landmark experience in the evolution of competitive first person shooters and competitive gaming in general.

I'm still shocked that Blizzard pulled off making so many unique heroes and settings with as much depth as the ones in Overwatch. My problem is that I want to master them all and there's just not enough time in a week to do that. Blizzard always succeeds and giving me too much of things I want to do. It's a nice problem to have though, and this time around it wasn't hard to convince friends to join in. Thanks for showing us what confidence looks like, Overwatch.
