Personally an avid player of Overwatch and Hearthstone. Grew up playing WoW. It's one of the biggest reasons I worked on Blizzard. I know some peoeple don't play the games their company makes as well.

If you play the games your company makes, what are your thoughts on them and those who don't play them?

If you don't, why not? Do you not think they are good games?

    Yes, but only when I was at General Atomics. They had this low tech looking aerial shooter called Predator. It was basically shooting missiles at cars and buildings and stuff.

    The AI speech for the dudes on the ground was pretty realistic though.

      Shooting missiles at cars and buildings, I’m not surprised at all 🤣

    Nope.

    Personally prefer my PS4 and Switch over the Xbox (don’t even own one).

    I seriously love my Nintendo Switch though.

    At one game company I played the games because I played their games prior to joining. At another game company I hated their games and I was forced to play them to be a part of the culture which was really bad lol.

      It wasn’t Zynga. But you’re close.

    Hearthstone hasn’t been good in a long time. WoW was amazing until the latest expansion. Diablo is fun occasionally. Starcraft is fun but so hard. Heroes was fun but why bother. Overwatch just isn’t my genre.

      I don’t know if I want to play the whole game over again... there are things I missed out on but the cost of entry is kinda high

    I'm not into sports games at all. Shooters I only play every now and then. And we haven't come out with a good RTS or rpg in 7+ years...

    Yes. Most of them. I am not as big into as I once was, but I still enjoy some of the classic's.
