Was looking for Overwatch and saw the game of the year edition for this price.

I thought it was a good deal. Seems like it according to camelcamelcamel:

Heat for price but I found this as dull as dishwater. Am I missing something but it was so repetitive.

Yep, maybe it's the type of game you need friends with mics,otherwise gets boring quick
Heat added, but the GotY edition just adds cosmetics on the PS4. Grab the standard edition cheaper if you can.

if you can play on PC though, it's a much better game (as with most games.)
Ordered this to see what all the fuss is about... is it easy to catch up with people that have been playing it for months? Not new to the genre, just never played this before...

True that the game of the year edition has only cosmetic upgrades, but it's still cheaper than the base game according to a quick comparison check I did.

And yes I can confirm that the PC version is better having played both, but I and most people do not have a PC/Laptop that can match the visuals of even the base PS4 version. I'm my case, I can't even run it at 30fps on 50% render scale. :'(

It's very easy to catch up. Arguably, beyond learning how to play, there is no catch up. Because Overwatch doesn't lock anything away based on progression. Only cosmetic items such as character skins can be earnt.

Imo it's one of the most beautiful things about the game.

It won't take over your life like a Destiny would.

It won't put you at a disadvantage if you don't pay extra money like Battlefront 2 would.

It won't limit your gameplay or player base like DLC in COD would. (All non-cosmetic DLC e.g. Maps and heroes are all free).

It won't release again in 12 months time for £50, every year like a Destiny or a COD would.

And it's much better at enforcing everyone to play objective, so that every game mode doesn't just feel like Team Deathmatch would.

N.B. I've played a lot of Cod and Destiny, I'm not hating I'm just making a personal and objective comparison of what I like about Overwatch.

That's great, thanks... sounds like it might be just the game for me... typically play cod 4 remastered but not had the time to level up to where I was on ps3... sounds like I could really get into this...

Apologies Raz, I genuinely didn't notice that. I'm quite a newbie at making a post, this is only my second one in 3 years (don't even remember making the first). Did not mean to steal the thunder away. Will learn to check first in the future.
Great game but very reliant on a good team.

Ouch! What have you got? My laptop is really funny, the Intel drivers make a total hash of it, it's unplayable because it's ridiculously glitchy.

But Overwatch is CRAZY optimized. I was playing it on a PC assembled from cheap <£100 total recycled parts at playable res and framerate. A better-than-console experience to be sure.

My current (slightly more expensive) build is a 6600K and GTX 960, and it's flying at 1080p with stuff cracked cranked to high at a solid 60FPS.

I've unfortunately only got a surface pro 3. I have a really powerful Macbook from work (quad core, dedicated graphics), although I'm not allowed to bootcamp Windows on it to run Overwatch.

Glad you're enjoying it tho. It's important to have a good team as someone mentioned here. Luckily I've got friends on both platforms
If you wanna get into PC esports gaming, a second hand rig based on ex-corporate kit (Dell Optiplex etc) with either a low-end current gen graphics card, or a second hand previous-gen graphics card, will give you a good base to start from on the cheap. You can pick up an i5-based Optiplex SFF system for about £50 on eBay, give or take, and a low profile 1030 (more than sufficient for Overwatch and other esports titles) for another £65. Just make sure it'll physically fit and is within your power budget from the PSU.

But the Surface Pro 3 is a great piece of kit, albeit not for gaming.

Thanks for the advice, I'm quite tech savvy myself. I'm a software engineer, and have also built a PC before.

At this moment in time I'm not really interested in PC gaming purely due to lack of time, and I've always had a console at hand hence have no current need to commit to a PC
