I’ve always been a fan of Overwatch‘s lore and characters, but the hard part is finding time to drop in a few rounds of first-person shooting. When I’m not working, I’m usually sailing through time with Crono and friends, carving up a battlefield in Fire Emblem, or experiencing the latest adventures from Atlus or Square Enix.
JRPGs are my thing, and when I get a few free minutes to game, that’s what I prioritize over everything else.
Which is why this fan-made Overwatch video hits it home for me. It nails the essence of PlayStation-era JRPGs, most notably Final Fantasy VII, with its rapid-fire camera positions, cheeky battle animations, and of course, music and sound effects.
Someone, please make this mod
This is a video made by a fan to look like a mod, not an actual mod itself. However, I’ve seen some genius work in the past to turn favorite PC games into slick turn-based JRPGs, most notably Starcraft 2.
From one Blizzard game to the next. If you can transform Overwatch in the same PlayStation-era fashion, I’ll be sure to give it a try.
