Yea to be honest I rarely play video games sober and i generally mute chats / don’t join voice chat unless it’s competitive. I’m on your page with serious casual, my quickplay stats are pretty good. So I like to try but it’s always kind of hilarious/scary when people freak out after losing a match. Like, is that the first time you lost a game?? High win percentages are like 60-70%, that’s a lot of losses regardless lol. It’s like people who get pissed off while driving I guess. Playing with some friends / chill people is the way to go. I think the recent group creation thing they added helps a lot, along with the endorsement system. Finding a group of people who are kinda just not going to freak out or not care if you use voice chat and it’s pretty fun.
Mainly I played competitive to get a gold weapon for Lucio. Now that I have it, I feel like no need to play comp. None of my old crew is really into OW, but damn having a posse and playing a game like that can be fun as hell. Used to play a lot of battlefield on PC and we would have a squad of 4-6 or more people all on voice chat. Could stomp in 64 player games with just 1 squad working together sometimes. Many a 40+ and 0 death tank rounds heh. Having some buddies who are playing for fun is the best. That’s kinda why I’ve been playing Rec Room in VR lately. It’s super chill. The low adoption rate for VR really makes the quality of life great, way less angry children. They are certainly still there… but lower numbers lol.
Hollow Knight looks really good, I want to grab it at some point. That and Dead Cells are for sure on my wishlist. Heheh, yea punishing games can be a good time but also rough. I still need to beat Dark souls 3 eventually
