    EDIT: I don't usually like to explain the jokes in my videos, but the "they're better at clicking on the bad men" is not a serious comment. I wrote it as a joke but in retrospect it doesn't really read as one, if I wanted to make that statement more accurately I'd say that the biggest difference between me and "the real gamers" is the fact that they're in comms, they're running one of the actual designated "meta" comps, and they're better at clicking on the bad men. Every single ranked match I played where my teammates joined team voice and communicated was a complete steamroll, every time they didn't we got steamrolled. Am I better than the other players in plat? I have no fucking idea, I just know that I didn't want to keep doing that 15 minute coin flip over and over just to get to the point where I had the right color under my hero portrait for my opinions to magically become valid. I'm not trying to convince you that Overwatch is bad, if you like it that's great, I'm just trying to explain why I don't.

    Not entirely sure why, but I can’t shake the feeling that I’ve been here before…

    Yeah, this video tool a really long time to make, even by my standards. I know that. Don’t worry, I have explicitly mapped out the next few videos to be about things that I don’t feel the need to be SUPER in depth about, and I’m also never ever EVER making a “full review” of this many games ever again because structuring this was an absolute nightmare. I’ve also been having a huge upswing in my mental health over the past few months, which is hopefully going to help future videos come out faster.

    I think working creatively sort of requires you to strike a balance between making stuff as high quality as you possibly can while also putting things out in a somewhat timely manner, and this video definitely doesn’t do that for me. My goal for 2019 is to post at least 7 videos, which I know a lot of people would laugh at but I don’t want to go back to churning out stuff I’m not happy with every month and I feel like 7 gives me enough time to make them meet my personal standards of quality. I like being able to take my time on stuff, but there’s a limit to that. I’m finding my sweet spot, and I’ll get there eventually.

    It also didn’t help that I gave myself a few “challenges” to help me improve as a writer for this video, now that I think about it.

    Anyways, I’m fucking exhausted. I’ll probably talk more about this on other social media after I’ve gotten some sleep in me. If you want to follow/support me through means other than watching the video I exist at:
    https://twitter.com/ShammyTV
    https://patreon.com/Shammy

    I post updates about videos on both of those, so if you ever find yourself wondering if I’ve been whacked by the mafia for all of those outstanding favors just check there to find out.

    Thank you all so much for watching, I honestly don’t think I’ll ever really get used to the sort of support I get on these videos. I hope you liked it.

    Sorry if this was super hard to read, I’m writing it without having slept for about 26 hours I think.

    I've played Paladins off and on ever sense it came out but I always like OW more. Until I watched this video and it possessed me to play it with my friends and now I love it

    This is why I play Lucio. I used to play Genji (then they removed the swift strike tech) and now the stun cancel rapes me. Lucio still has hidden tech, but nobody actually plays Lucio, so there's a very small Lucio community.

    I like Overwatch cause im use to playing it but Paladins is the smoothes game ive ever played!(Which is a good thing). It is also beautiful with a lot of colors and the characters it self. The game colors remind me of Spyro xD

    I have been playing Paladins ever since CB20, game was unique, then they started added more simple champs (kinda like Overwatch with Bridgette and Moira).. and then they started adding no brain champions with assault rifles and whatever that only need to left click and get 2 or 3 kills.. heck at least you can kill Reaper on his ult but you can’t with Koga

    I do enjoy Paladins champions a bit more but my problem is how dumb they have become.. willow on release was just throw some bombs at the point and at least you got 2 kills

    If only they started making skill based champions again, I would be playing it a lot more; instead I just play it to get my ranked skin and that’s pretty much all

    I did love Gigantic, such a shame what happened, the game was amazing

    i like Paladins more than Overwatch. I guess I just like the characters and abilities in one more than the other.

    this kinda makes me scared for the future of Overwatch since Blizzard isn't the same as they once were (and I blame Activision for that)

    Honestly I think one of the main reasons Gigantic failed was that it just didn't look appealing.

    The name itself sounds so vague and corporate designed, like it's trying to make a catchphrase that'll never catch on; Nobody's going to say "Bro let's be Gigantic". It has no connection to the plot in any way and it hasn't integrated itself into a logo in any way. The Overwatch logo and name are both really well made as the logo is just the name shortened, it's a snappy name that sounds very action-y and the logo of it won't be confused with anything anytime soon since it's a very abnormal shape with orange which is a colour that isn't all that commonly used as the iconic colour the game is associated with ie. How the words "Team Fortress 2" make you think of red and blue as soon as you hear it or how "Minecraft" makes you think of green and brown. It was a name that seemed like it meant nothing and like it was trying very hard to make a phrase.

    The designs of the characters, although unique to each other, blend together when placed together. Overwatch's characters are simple at their base, they use about two colours and they have a simple body shape that unique pieces are bolted onto ie. McCree and Genji are the same body shape but the stuff on top and the colouring of that stuff is what makes them easy to differentiate even in a still image. They have detail on characters but most of it correlates with the style of each character which helps it to "stick" to a character like Genji's armour piping being quite minimalist with some grey lines and little bits of green in it which is also his colour. The characters of Gigantic, while unique, are not memorable; They're just blobs of detail with many colours and shapes, they're certainly creative but they don't help to sell the game well.

    The most important triumph Overwatch had over Gigantic is porn. Who 2 sex in Gigantic?

    Sorry about the essay I had to write two of them today.

    I played gigantic on xbox and liked it fine but I didn't really take the time to learn how its played so I didn't play it much at all. Kinda wish that stuck with it a bit more.

    I hate overwatch for what it has become. Plus it's annoying how little they care about the story of overwatch. Like it had the potential to be great but they were like, fuck that here have a comp mode that sucks ass and gives no real reward whatsoever

    As someone who plays both games and has never really been satisfied with ether your review of them both is spot on. I was then REALLY excited to play Gigantic until you dropped the news that the company got fucked sideways by a community cactus.
    Me and my friend have been considering trying to build our own game and while it is nowhere near the same Genre as the games reviewed here, if we actually go with the idea we will definitely reach out to Gigantic's developers and offer them jobs if they dont already have ones they enjoy.
    We would also love if you would review the game as you are one of three video game review channels that not only makes me laugh but is also brutally honest about ALL the good, bad, and ugly of a game.
    I would love to talk to you more about the topic if you have free time. Catch me on discord at Titus#0237 or at my E-mail at Newavalon5@gmail.com
