@netiger: I've heard Dragon Age's DLC was pretty good, especially the last one as it's more of an ending. Way I see it, each piece is roughly $5 each and for an extra dollar you own the game. Of course if you're just interested in the base game and playing others, then yeah - EA Access is the way to go

@dlaney34: Because the pendulum seemed to be swinging in the opposite direction with AAA titles like Halo 5 and Overwatch (plus Titanfall 2 from what I hear) offering post-launch DLC like maps for free. Optional microtransactions to keep the money flowing seem to be working out well for them. Battlefield's always done the premium editions though I admit, I was kinda hoping they'd go the similar route.

Episode VII was a lot of fun, but I hope they try to do something new with the next movie at the same time and aren't as dependent as nostalgia (at least that's how I felt). With the Rogue One reshoot rumors too, I worry the writers may be afraid to step out from under the shadow of the original trilogy. Still, I'm looking forward to seeing both movies - Rogue One still looks promising in offering a gritty war film alongside the light-hearted fun of the main series.

@spartanx169x: The 21 characters are what I love most about the game - I've never seen such a colorful cast with so many diverse abilities yet still have a (mostly) balanced online game. While it lacks an offline campaign mode, there's so much detail woven into the maps and the little side banter between the characters helps bring it alive. And with tanks, support, assault and defense roles, it makes fighting as a team a lot of fun. On the surface it looked like the sort of game I'd feel finished with after a week, but nearly a month with the game (and 21 hours) I feel like I'm still finding new nooks and crannies to try with other characters. Maybe I wouldn't pay $60, but at the $30-$40 price range it's a blast online.

@jshah500: Not saying it's impossible to beat Torbjorns: I've broken through with a well-coordinated team and the right characters, especially Reinhardt and Tracer's sticky bomb can be effective at taking down the turret (plus its nearby Torbjorn) in one go. But when your team's not well-coordinated, and sometimes I'm just playing with one or two friends with other randoms, multiple Torbjorns can be a nightmare especially on payload escort. My main gripe with the turret is it locks on to you VERY quickly and swivels around the full 360 degrees in a flash. I just feel something's unbalanced when you see a Torbjorn play of the game and he's nowhere near the action, just standing there watching the kill notifications roll in.

@heydink: I've had the game since May 22 (servers came on that afternoon). It's not like I played 20 hours in one go, I'd hardly call 20 hours of gameplay over 25 days binging. I played it a couple hours at a time when it first came out, then it steadily trickled to an hour or even just half an hour a day, then some days I didn't play it at all.

*Sigh* I thought more people were complaining that Torbjorn's turret and Bastion are overpowered. Nothing annoys me more than seeing the enemy team go all Torbjorn and just build turrets in front of our spawn point, but Blizzard doesn't even talk about him. I don't hear THAT many complaints about Widowmaker, you need good aim with her and I never thought she got a cheap kill on me

Overwatch was a blast but after 20 hours, I'm torn on whether I should trade it in or hold out for new content. I hope Blizzard does more to keep their fanbase engaged because I'm starting to feel fatigue due to the lack of maps and modes, plus some balancing issues *cough* Torbjorn's turret *cough*. I don't think I'm the only one.
