This Overwatch video is called “Vindication”, and so it jolly well is.

Overwatch is pretty similar across all three platforms but as with every competitive title available on both PC and consoles, PC players reckon they’re better at it than all those kiddies with their imprecise devices.

YouTuber DSPStanky made some waves a few months back with a great Overwatch montage called King of Swing, in which he showed off his unusual Lucio playstyle and how effective this support character can be with the right player at the controls.

As you’ll see in the opening of the video above, a ton of Overwatch PC players turned up to say that, actually, what he was doing wasn’t that great because console players can’t even aim and he wouldn’t last ten seconds on PC and everyone he was playing was rubbish because they were also console players and – well, you’ve read the comments on any video game website or video ever, right?

So DSPStanky switched platforms and started playing Overwatch on PC. And you know what? Turns out they’re still really great at it. Vindicated. Just watch that skill rating climb.

Don’t mind some of the footage quality in this video; since they’re not usually a console player, DSPStanky doesn’t have a fancy set up to capture while streaming Overwatch, so pulled much of it from Twitch.

    Thinks himself better, hasn’t posted a single video, ragequits every game because of mainers and other annoying gaming styles. The men thinks cause he bought the game he owns the community, well he better been born in 2157 when bots are as good as players and he can tell them what to do 😀

    Me ? When I find someone who plays in an unusually annying way to me and beats me, I just try harder and have an even better time,

    Wouldn’t someone proficient in a superior interface be a superior gamer?

    And, with that, Grim left… walking funny and holding his pants up with one hand.

    I played OW and was fun but the shooting was not really amazing, good controls but very simplified gameplay. Not my kind of game for long tou.

    “Can people please stop playing games in a manner that is counter to my demands???? OMG!! How dare you!?”

    No, fuck you.

    Why do people always gotta hate on someone ?

    Just because you can’t do it doesn’t mean it’s impossible

    Well, when someone in Overwatch has their nickname changed to an in game character it’s customary for everyone to harass them whenever they choose a character other than their namesake.

    Can people please stop “maining” characters in a team shooter with over 20 chars? It’s not a freaking fighting game, you need to now know to play with at least several characters and “mainers” (especially ones that switch their nicks to one of the characters) are annoying.

  11. well ofc they are good on pc too lol.. When he has main’d lucio on console, it’s gonna be an easy switch to pc bcs the possibilities is much bigger. He had a speed up learning curve bcs of the knowlegde he already had of the game from console.

    I think culture articles like these absolutely have their place in journalism. The problem is just with Brenna and her desperately overblown attempts at sounding hip and modern in her writing. It only comes across contrived and forced.

    Nobody was saying they were a superior gamer. Keyboard and mouse simply has an objective advantage with precision over controller. This guy is clearly good at playing regardless of the device.

  14. SpaceCraft

    I guess that with the update on the wall ride and with only pushing people in the void, it’s not a matter of aiming. Lucio is defenitly not the best char to show skill with a gamepad. Ana, Tracer, Widow should be a different story.

  15. Ramocheese

    That makes me curious as to how old you are, and if you played it with a group of friends.
    I’m 30 and I’ve been playing it quite a lot since it came out, but that’s mostly because I have a group of people I play with every now and then.

    The only reason I say this is that I would have gotten bored of Overwatch a long time ago if I wasn’t playing with my friends. So I think that possibly has something to do with the games overall appeal.

    I do that every day 🙂 playing with a controller on PC 🙂 d.va, junkrat and ana <3

  18. He looks like a great player but deffo up against some newbs in all the clips he chose to compile.

  19. PC idiots can go fuck youself
    Another crap news

  20. Alexandro Lopez

    That explains why PC is better than consoles

  21. Ziriak

    Do like it when snobby pc elitists get reminded that they’re not some superior gamer after all.

  22. Seifer

    He hit Grand Master you fucking moron, he is almost top 500 in a server with at least 15 million of players., Try uploading a gameplay of yourself fucking bronze.

  23. It’s not so much that journalism is dead but what qualifies as newsworthy has been expanded beyond the scope of absurdity. That’s why news should never be a business, once money becomes involved it corrupts everything.

  24. Heroman

    Because Lucio is hard. Wish I’d get matched up with such terrible enemies… Zarya couldn’t kill a 3 HP Lucio in like 10 seconds? Wow. Must have been using a gamepad.

    Edit: also, are you really reporting this as a news story? with the word “bullshit” in the headline? Journalism really IS dead.

  25. Dead Red

    I got bored within the free weekend and wondered what all the reviews were talking about. I think i would have loved that game if i was younger
