Rainbow Six Siege and Overwatch are often held up as great examples of evolving games, with Ubisoft and Blizzard continuing to support their multiplayer titles long after their respective release dates. In the time since launch, we've had everything from brand new characters and maps, to cosmetics that help keep everything fresh. Both games are excellent team-based multiplayer shooters, both utilize a hero system to add depth and replayability, and both have very passionate fanbases. But which game is better?
That's what our new show, Versus, aims to figure out, in a lighthearted way. The series kicks off with an episode dedicated to pitting the much-loved two shooters against one another. Seasoned Overwatch player Tamoor Hussain is in the red corner, fighting for Blizzard's colorful shooter over a three-round argument. Oscar Dayus, meanwhile, is over in the blue corner championing Rainbow Six Siege.
The discussion begins with randomly selected topics, and the pair argue in support of their respective games. Amongst the serious analysis of each title, there's also some fun-poking and jokes at each other's expense, as with all good debates. Be sure to watch till the end to see the quick-fire round... it goes places.
Let us know who you think won the debate in the comments below, or head over to YouTube to vote in our official poll, and we'll let you know who wins the most votes in next week's episode.
