My 5 Worst Types of Overwatch Players

It’s been a weird weekend, in all the time I probably should have been spending writing, instead I’ve just been in an Overwatch coma.

Wooderon Games of the Year 2015: #8

Day three of my game of the year coverage and things start to get a little more meaty.  So far I’ve had one game that I felt was technically strong enough and meant enough to me to make the list and another just looked nice enough that I wanted to recommend it. Now, something completely different again.

Remember, this is my opinion based on the games I played, I’ll be making my apologies for not having the time to play certain games in due time, but for now let’s focus on what I did play. So, I’ll give a recap of the list so far and then move onto the new entry:
