Overwatch: Reimagined As An RPG

One of the best first person shooters on the market to date, or at least arguably so, is Overwatch by Blizzard. The quirky, fast-paced multiplayer is a game that keeps you on your toes when playing and isn’t what I would call a relaxing game. Deciding to slow down the game play, someone has decided to re-imagine the game as a turn based RPG.

For those of you who can’t imagine it yourself, take a look below. The YouTube channel ‘The Salt Factory’ managed to give us a look into a Final Fantasy esque type gameplay for the heart pounding game. The video showcases four characters – Reinhardt, McCree, Mercy, Bastion – going toe to toe with Roadhog.

The game play, while interesting, just doesn’t seem to fit the characters. Between the four of them, they should have blow through Roadhog in seconds but the turned based system gave him quite the chance to fight back. On top of that, the turn based system seems to take away from the heart pounding nature of the game. It just doesn’t seem as fun to have to wait for your opponent to move in this case, as in Overwatch it’s all about bring the fight to them as quick and painfully as possible.
