Esports is still something I’m trying to come to grips with. I want it to be a “thing” because I like video games, and I’d love a spectator sport that I can identity with. However, to date, esports tournaments have been uncomfortably geeky, and lacking in their own identity. But with Overwatch League (OWL), it looks like things may be changing.
If the subtext wasn’t clear in my Destiny 2 review, then I’ll just say it out loud – I’m not perfectly happy with Destiny 2. Sure, it’s more Destiny, and considering I spent 1000 hours in that game, that’s certainly not a bad thing, but the problem is that Bungie has simplified the game to cater to a specific audience. My issue is that the game I fell in love with originally was catered to a different audience.
