But that’s not all! This is part one of a two part series! Buzzfeed, in all its omniscient glory, has provided not one, but two quizzes purporting to inform me of my Overwatch identity. I’m not messing around with this. I need an accurate answer, and if there are multiple quizzes claiming to provide truth, who am I to question?
So, without any further ado, Quiz Number One: Which Member of Overwatch are You? Play along here!
Oh man, nothing makes me feel guiltier for ending my run early than Till I Collapse. It just feels wrong to quit when it comes up on my mix.
I generally care too much what people think about me, so we’re going with respect here. Came very close to picking power, but that felt too evil for some reason.
Uh, obviously intellect. At least give me cool weapons to choose from if you think you’re going to tempt me to violence, Buzzfeed.
I have literally played none of these, so we are judging a game by its cover. I know that Diablo is supposed to be a real classic, but how am I supposed to say no to The Lost Vikings?
All of these things make me angry, I guess, although I would identify that feeling as more sadness than rage usually. But my love of dogs and other cuddly critters will not be denied.
Y’all, I have never played World of Warcraft. There’s a reason that I have always identified as Talk This Podcast’s video game n00b. That said, I’ve written before about my love of Dungeons and Dragons in media, and I always imagine WoW to be something like a virtual DnD (lots of acronyms there!). Using that as my basis, whenever I play these kinds of fantasy RPGs, I always pick the elf. So let’s be a night elf!
Similarly, I really like playing as Rogues.
I assume these powers correspond to various Overwatch characters, and if I was picking a character to play, I might want a different power than I would in real life. Probably mind control, or time travel so that I can go back and fix my in-game mistakes. But in the real world, flight is one hundred percent the best power. I wouldn’t have to take the subway or sit in traffic ever again!
Oh dear. This quiz is really hitting on my lack of video game knowledge. In Borderlands, I play as the big bruiser character. So we’re going to pretend that Team Fortress 2 functions the same way, and go with the Heavy.
Moment of truth! My results:
I’m a robot? A zombie robot? It seems appropriate that I have a sibling, but otherwise, I’m not sure how my answers gave me an undead cyborg.
Overwatch players, is Genji any good? Should I be happy with this choice? I’ll be getting a second opinion this weekend, when I take quiz number two!
