Whether or not I like it doesn’t change the fact that it’s iconic... This argument can also branch into, say, Star Wars, a series I absolutely love.
Sure, the first few would be annoying, but the last Hogwarts Express has come out in 2010 (I think). That’s an eight years difference. Building techniques have vastly improved in that time, and a remake is justified.
I’d be interested in other skins, she’s my third favorite to play.
But nothing new. We’ve had Portal, Minecraft, Midway Arcade, and Battlefront.
I would seriously debate this if there wasn’t arcade
Overwatch, I’d argue, is much more based on teamwork than Minecraft ever will be. The point is to capture and protect objectives as a team. Killing is just a strategy.
Also, LEGO doesn’t advertise be killing. They advertise the action and design, much like Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and more. Each involves killing, but isn’t directly mentioned but LEGO.
I also feel the need to mention that on the return of every character has a voice line regarding “not dying.” For instance, D.Va says, “I’m too young to die,” Winston says, “Through the miracles of science!” and Symmetra: “Death is an illusion.”
Whether or not this is relevant is perspective.
LEGO, who released Simpson’s and Big Bang Theory? I’d say Overwatch is a step down from hose two.
Finally, Overwatch’s target audience isn’t kids. It’s those who play the game. The box art, set design, and lack of functions all are decided based on the demographics: mainly teenagers and some adults. Those who this would concern aren’t even supposed to be buying the sets.
