  • OVERWATCH

  • it's funny that Logitech make videos about games and not only about their products…
    but it's good!
    I like it.

  • what i dont get with the rats is, they didnt know anything at all would happen when they keep pressing the button. In games however, you are familiar with the rules, you usually see XP bars to know you're gonna level up after like 20 kills or so. Interesting nonetheless

  • when I pubg it feel like i'm being naughty when I loot houses : )

  • I always had a thought on these things but didn't know how to cite explanations. Good video!

  • witcher 3 <3 still playing

  • the games i had the biggest addiction to were pokemon, diablo 2 and wow i think 😀
