This Overwatch video is called “Vindication”, and so it jolly well is.
Overwatch is pretty similar across all three platforms but as with every competitive title available on both PC and consoles, PC players reckon they’re better at it than all those kiddies with their imprecise devices.
YouTuber DSPStanky made some waves a few months back with a great Overwatch montage called King of Swing, in which he showed off his unusual Lucio playstyle and how effective this support character can be with the right player at the controls.
As you’ll see in the opening of the video above, a ton of Overwatch PC players turned up to say that, actually, what he was doing wasn’t that great because console players can’t even aim and he wouldn’t last ten seconds on PC and everyone he was playing was rubbish because they were also console players and – well, you’ve read the comments on any video game website or video ever, right?
So DSPStanky switched platforms and started playing Overwatch on PC. And you know what? Turns out they’re still really great at it. Vindicated. Just watch that skill rating climb.
Don’t mind some of the footage quality in this video; since they’re not usually a console player, DSPStanky doesn’t have a fancy set up to capture while streaming Overwatch, so pulled much of it from Twitch.
