It's the second most popular online FPS after PUBG. It's not going to run dry any time soon and is likely to continue getting new free content for years to come.

Matchmaking is better on the PC version as that has the biggest base (and keyboard & mouse is undoubtedly the best way to play) but if that isn't an option it's still a lot of fun on PS4.
what does the GOTY edition have over the regular?

... What?

If you were disregarding the comment in a roundabout fashion, it's really not just a preference thing. I've played the game on pc and console. Using a controller is incredibly limiting considering the scope, flexibility, and pacing of the gameplay and a ton of what makes the game feel so good to play is lost. But if you can't get it on pc, console is better than nothing.

GOTY edition includes these 'Origins' skins you can't get any other way and ten lootboxes. Lootboxes are purely cosmetic and you get them at a good pace so there's no sense that you should ever need to buy them. Everything gameplay wise is unlocked from the start.
If you'll forgive me reposting what I posted on the last OW PS4 bargain thread:


A bargain, heat added. It's not perfect, but it's the closest I've seen anyone come in a long time. And it's only getting better.

If you can play the PC version instead, do that, but if not then this a superb choice.

Overwatch is some of the best value gameplay I've purchased, having picked it up on PC (PCMR) at launch. The Overwatch dev team (headed by Jeff Kaplan) have been relentlessly adding new content. None of this paid DLC bullcrap, no pay-to-win. You have the game. It's yours.

New characters, new maps, new gameplay modes. Server browser (on the PC at least, dunno about console). Special events added regularly. Excellent esports league on PC, and presumably some sort of ranked play on console.

Interesting, fun, gorgeous and cool roster of characters which have been tweaked, overhauled and expanded over time.

Sniper healer from Egypt, Latin-American stealth hacker, African energy shield and machinegun defense bot, amoral Irish evil scientist with healing and offensive capabilities, all added since launch. For free.

Even the short cinematics Blizzard have released are top notch. (The "Alive" one kicked me in the chest like a Pixar movie.) The comics are supposed to be really good, the ones I've read sure were. They're building out and filling in the Overwatch universe and it's AWESOME.

The loot crate reward system is cosmetic and has no real-world swapping or selling. Nothing like the CS:GO weapons fiasco. You can buy extra loot crates for cosmetics like voice lines and skins, but you win them regularly anyway. It's your skills and teamwork that determine how you do, not how much money you spend.
