This game is pretty good.

Will Overwatch beat TF2? Maybe competitively. However TF2 is still a more chilled and lay backed game.

This is very evident in the laid back forever 2 fort games and the many silly game modes and maps. Thats kinda the thing about Overwatch VS TF2. If you don't feel like being competetive in TF2, then you can do silly fun things like Super Smash Bros, Wario Inc, Randomizer, Prop Hunt, and 10x mode.

So all though TF2 will always hold a special place in my heart, you may also want to consider Overwatch for competetive play.

The vicious cycle of Tf2:

Install game
Play the tutorial
Yeah this game seems straighforward enough
Join your first server
It's probably payload
It's probably Goldrush
10 minutes to decide which team to join
10 minutes to decide what class to pick
The game ends
You were too slow
Alright lets try this again
Join another server
Its King of the hill
Its Sawmill
Choose random team because you learnt your mistake
Choose Scout because you learnt your mistake
This class is pretty cool
Try play for the objective
Run into a saw and die
What just killed me?
Go back to the capture point
Get killed by a saw while capping
Wtf is this
Choose soldier
See someone rocket jumping
Thats pretty cool
Try to rocket jump
Blow yourself up
This class sucks
Pick spy
Try capture the point while invis
Why isnt is capturing?
Come out of invis
See a pyro coming right for you
Run into a saw and die
Try again
See an engineer
Follow him for an easy backstab
Get killed by his sentry because you don't know how to disguise yet
Thats bull
Pick medic
I will help out my team now
Latch onto a teammate and don't heal anyone else
Get an Uber
Get backstabbed before you can use it
This class sucks
Pick demo
Place stickies on the point
What does rightclick do?
You blow yourself up
Pick pyro
Get some kills
Find the backburner
Get alot of kills
Find the ghastly gibus
Equip is so you look like a l33t b1g pr0
Try capture the point again
You're so close
x2>
A pyro airblasts you into a saw and you die
Game ends
You lose.
Return to the main menu
Exit the game
Go to bed.

--------

Rinse and repeat

I have played this game for an entire year; time for my account on it.

I have logged 2,407 hours at the time of writing this review.

The fact that this game is pushing a decade old, and is still the 3rd or 4th most played game on Steam should hint to you something; This game is good, and at the price of absolutely free, why the ♥♥♥♥ have you not downloaded it yet?

This game has a special place in my heart; there's not one game that has let me know people from all sorts of walks of life, and get to play with, or against them, or end up being Sandvich-sharing, congaing friends in the end; a game that can hold your interest for 2,407 total hours, and people's overall interest for 9 years, is obviously a game you need to try.

Now, to the core value of the game; this is easily the most balanced shooter out there; this game is "Pay2Pimp", otherwise known as pay for a crapton of virtual hats that give you no actual advantage in-game except making you look more suavy. Everything in this game can be earned by just playing the game, and there's nothing in this game that exclusively a P2P user can get over a F2P user that actually gives them an advantage in-game, it's truly F2P, and doesn't require you to buy stuff to get ahead in the game, unless you want to really get involved in TF2's dynamic trading.

Team Fortress 2 has more gamemodes than any shooter I have ever seen before; and I CHALLENGE you to find a game with more gamemodes and variety than TF2. Along with the core implemented gamemodes in TF2, there are a ton of mods, or other gamemodes made by the community if you get tired of Capture Points, Payload, King of the Hill, Capture the Flag, Attack/Defend, Mannpower, Territory Control, Medieval Mode, PASS Time, Robot Destruction, Mann vs Machine, Player Destruction, Payload Race, Arena Mode, Competitive Modes, Highlander Modes, and Special Delivery, along with 86 offical maps to go along with these core modes, along with more maps from the community workshop being added into the game over time; you'll never have something you haven't done in TF2.

Now, off the topic of TF2 and it's overall core gameplay; people keep saying they don't want to try TF2, saying it's for little kiddies, or the hackers make this game ruined; VAC now detects LAMEbox Premium; the hack that was said to be "un-VAC-able" this game can please any demographic, to people who want a fun game to pick up once, and never put down, to people who just love to trade and upgrade the value of their inventories with the game's dynamic economy, or even the competitive demographic, as Valve is testing Matchmaking Beta for TF2.

This game is free; there's no risk to trying it. You have nothing to lose, and so ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ much to gain, after playing it for a little; I wish everyone could see the magic behind this game.

So I spent most of my hours in idle servers and trading servers , being a Hoovy sitting in a corner for hours while watching the tryhards attempt to kill each other.

I should have allocated some time to learn how to rocket jump.

Even though some of the reviews I read is about the community being 'bad', thinking about it, I hardly ever see a 'decent' community for a game, everyone has their pros and cons, it can't be flawless. I agree that it's kind of turning into a CS:GO clone, you can now pick up weapons when they're dropped after someone dies, there's skins of stock weapons, I really miss Valve releasing new Festive skins and I do not like the idea of a Festivizer, and there are no new crates with new Strange weapons, just more cases with more skins and cosmetics and the nerf on some weapons are really unnecessary, it's TF2, not CS:GO, trying to completely balance the weapons in this game is impossible. Overall, it's my favorite game of all time and it will stay that way. Not interested in Overwatch at all.

This is probably the only game I will ever need. It's the game that got me into PC gaming and it's the game that has the best community out of the biggest games. Mainly because it's not a toxic community. Just like CS there is so much to do in them because of all the left in glitches and wierd game mechanics. It's also free wich makes it easy to play with friends wich is one of the best things.
Thanks for bringing me this game!

Probably one of the best games I have ever played. It has a great community (aside from the occasional squeaker), incredible gameplay, beautiful graphics, and a weapon system that is diverse, but rather than one weapon being particularly "better" than another, they are more adaptibe to different play styles, something that is not very popular in games these days. Although there are players who have been playing exponentially longer than me, I usually feel like I can get a decent number of points without having to intensely practice. Overall, Team Fortress 2 is just an incredible game, and I couldn't reccomend it more.

Sandwiches are the equivalent to napping in this game

You could be shot, blown up, enflamed, injected with something, hit with a baseball bat, stabbed, ♥♥♥♥♥♥ on, etc etc.

Eat a sandwich.

This game has brought joy to me throughout the years. And maybe some extreme rage as well.

This is one of the few games I just can't help but come back to, over and over again. The value of teamwork in this game can be beneficial for hundreds of other games to.
With constant updates, gamemodes, buffs and nerfs, and mostly cosmetic items (And the occasional new weapon that isn't a reskin every fifth major update), the possibilities are endless, as well as the hours you regretfully put into this game.

Learn the different types of players throughout the game, like Free to Play's who frequently play as Pyro and run towards you Flame Thrower blazing, the class mains who ♥♥♥♥♥ about other teammates not doing their job correctly, the friendly players who give you a Sandvich one moment, then unload their Minigun into your back the next, the random who accuses players of hacking but is just terrible, the players who actually do hack and are VAC banned within 30 minutes, and so much more!

There are so many things to this game to like, almost anyone could find something to enjoy.

TL;DR The game´s dead to me. I´m gonna be playing Overwatch, see ya.

I installed TF2 around 2012, when the game was F2P, and I remember starting out and having a blast. I was about 13 at the time. I remember meeting some great people, having fun in the community servers, etc. I don´t know if it was because I grew up (which is something I doubt) or because I got burned out, but TF2 is now boring to play, and an unpleasing experience nonetheless.

I´m amazed to see how, as time progressed, people stopped playing as a team and concentrated on going solo to get kills, and then raging when someone doesn´t do what they want and start screaming at people, other players not doing anything for the team and wasting time, etc. What exactly happened it´s something that I can´t tell you. And honeslty, the fact that there are killstreaks just makes this worse, and causes players to, again, go specifically for kills and not work as a team, at all.


As someone that has wasted nearly 2000 hours into TF2, I can say that it was a fun ride.
TF2 getting neglected by Valve, nothing really new since MvM (which, may I remind you, came out in 2012), no new maps, and of course, weapon skins, ´cuz that´s EXACTLY what this game needed.

Competitve Mode isn´t really interesting, and it was added too late into the game´s life.
I stopped playing in mid 2013, only to come back in 2014 to see what changed, and I was dissapointed. NOTHING new, at all.

Although I do have to say how great the community is. They´re working as hard as they can to keep this game alive, and that honestly shows how much Valve just doesn´t really care.

I´m going to miss the fun times that I had with TF2, but unless Valve reacts and does something with this nearly 10 year old zombie of a game, then it can be officially declared as dead. I´ve uninstalled the game and I don´t really plan on coming back unless Valve does SOMETHING. It´s an old game, and day by day it´s starting to show it´s age.

You know a game´s dead when people play if for the cosmetics and not for the game itself.

#RIPTF2?
