Focal Day 7

Overwatch is a massive game, despite having only been out for around eight months. I see Overwatch as a fun game in its own right, but also as the ultimate combination of games as art, and games creating social advancement/movement. Overwatch is a team game that encouraged team play. That’s just when you’re playing. The fan community surrounding the game is massive and has been very receptive to new content and continues to do all sorts of things ranging from fan-art to competitive play, to of course streaming via Twitch. So it’s not surprising to see Overwatch at the top of most streaming games list, and knowing it has nowhere to go but up, I look forward to seeing what becomes of it in 2017.
