Learning how to play as more healers like Mercy, Baptiste, Lucio, and Moira

Click this poorly constructed link to check out the most recent shenanigans feating me, VindallTV, and some other guy whose name I repeatedly forget. Not because he’s not memorable, my brain just throws away people’s names almost immediately. Oh! Anyway, the gameplay vid:

So yeah, “Chet Improves at Overwatch” is a pretty good title. But just so you know, “improve” doesn’t mean “good”. I suck so if you have a hard time watching people be bad at a game, you may want to turn away.

You gotta admit, I’m fast learner. I was using Lucio for like 5 minutes before immediately wallrunning around like I’m playing Titanfall. Shout out to Titanfall BTW. Still, doesn’t help that I didn’t know shooting my teammates did NOT heal them and I was wasting my time with that. Hilarious.

I also took quickly to Baptiste after initially being god-awful at it. One I learned how the health grenades worked, I jumped from ‘scrub’ to ‘competent’ in two matches. I like the healing grenade but god damn do I hate his gun. Burst firing is not my thing, and slow burst firing is even worse. Seems rather ineffectual in PvP so I stuck to healing my friends.

In Battlefield V, I stick to healing. It only makes sense that I also do it here. It’s a rather fun thing to pull off. So, if you wanna see Chet improve at Overwatch, get ready to see more and more medic plays. I’m sure they are totally fun to watch and not as bad as watching pain dry. Unless you were being paid to watch paint dry, that would be pretty lit.

Chet improves at overwatch is brought you by the letter D, for dumb.

ATTN: True Gamers

You don’t have to be a super serious hardcore gamer, a streamer with thousands of views or be an MLG pro to be a true gamer. Instead, consider if you’re really enthusiastic about your gaming. How much do you love your games? If you are here, then gaming means something to you. Gamers who are truly passionate: we want YOU. Streamers who just put yourselves out there just for fun? Yes, we plan to notice you. And not just you streamers, we want to talk to all of you gaming enthusiasts too. That doesn’t make you less of a gamer if you don’t feel like streaming.

Be it console, PC, or even mobile, we don’t discriminate. You don’t have to be the best at every game to be a hard mode gamer. You don’t have to be the best at one game, even. Hell, despite the namesake, you really don’t even have to play games on hard mode if it isn’t your bag. There are people who are happy with playing game after game after game for the sake of variety over challenge. And, there are also people who just play one game with their comrades.

Not to mention, this site will remain free from game activist POLITICS.

If you’re reading this, it’s likely one of the fine people from this site have reached out to you, interested in getting to know more about you. We’d very much like to feature you in our weekly feature on eager gamers. Just tell us a little about what your interests are and why you chose us and send that email to hardmodegamerslol@gmail.com. We will fill you in on a couple of things from there.

Oh, and if you’ve stumbled upon this website and are interested? Thank you, please check out our stuff and possibly consider getting yourself featured too.
