Humble Bumble monthly subscription is $12 and you get this game. If I go two months, it would be $24 plus whatever games they throw in. I've done the bundles before for charity but I've ended up giving the games away. I have a huge backlog of games from Steam sales so is this game really fun to play for more than a couple of times?

Do you like fps pvp? Do you like TF2? Do you like a well made and basically cheater free game that's also decently balanced? If yes then Overwatch is worth $12. I like it because it's something I can start, get into a match in under 2 minutes, play a couple rounds and then walk away. It's also a great game to play with your kids.

I would say no, I got it for $18 or something, I have barely played it. It is just not fun to me. My main complaint is the games are way too short (5-10 minutes maybe?) and it takes way too long to find a match.

I love Overwatch. Played it on PS4 for quite awhile but recently picked it up for $22 on PC and its even more fun. Without a doubt worth it.

Proud casual here, Overwatch is great. It's pretty much the only game I play right now. I play with a bunch of IRL friends, most of whom aren't FPS experts and just play non-precision aim characters. If you are half decent at real FPS you'll do well with some DPS characters that "real" casual people find difficult.

It's fairly civil too for an online game these days because Blizzard will actually ban you.

Overwatch is a great "get-in, get-out" game. I personally love online shooters, and I think it's well worth the money. If I only have 20 minutes to spend, I can get a game or two in easily.
