Overwatch has better character design, voice acting, aesthetics, has skins, customization, doesn't put stupid limits on players to 'protect the kids' like no voice chat or actual matchmaking, has themed specials with unique skins, is on PC...etc...
Even my most peaceful and calm posts are somehow designed to belittle those that disagree with me even a little, get used to it~!

Blizzard still knows how to make games people actually want. Something Nintendo forgot along the way.

Overwatch is only popular because of porn.
That's it. It can't be the gameplay. I mean, the gameplay is good, but I just played for the free weekend they had, and I can safely say that it's not something I'm ever going to get the urge to play ever again.

It's like the FPS equivalent of Streets of Rage. Everything is fine in terms of graphics, music, gameplay, and mechanics. But it stops at being good, and has no interest or motivation to go further than that.

Splatoon also has actual matchmaking... Both are actually based off of the Elo rating system. Elo systems require the player to play through a few hundred matches typically though then they slowly balance out.

If you want a game with s***ty matchmaking, you play Battlefield, CoD, and other shooters that put no match making system in place so experienced players can curb stomp noobs and feel big.

I'm just going to point out a couple of obvious reasons:

#1, it released on 3 platforms.

#2, Splatoon has honestly backed itself into a corner with its 90's stylized art.


Both are great games.


it sold nearly 5mil on an install base of 13 mil, how is that backing itself into a corner?

by your reasoning overwatches 20mil in an install base of nearly 300 mil is garbage.


I'm saying Splatoon will always sale a niche amount. Overwatch has a mainstream look, Splatoon doesn't. Had it been on 3 platforms the sales wouldn't increase much.


I could be wrong, but I think Splatoon will never sale as much because people will look at it as being "kiddie."

I tried to like Overwatch but it's just not that fun. The free version of Overwatch--Paladins--seemed more fun to me, just in how it feels and plays. Overwatch... bleh.

90% of the reason it's successful is the crazy marketing and the name BLIZZARD.

I don't know it feels pretty balance with Battlefield.
