    They are boldly themselves, the only thing that makes a person cool is the unwillingness the compromise in their ideals.

      I'm a noob but for me a big draw is
      The mercs are buttholes and it's kinda refreshing as opposed to a cast where everyone is a hero/legend/operator or whatever fighting for a generic cause, meanwhile these dumb oafs are killing each other over gravel pits for cash. I dig it.

        no, see, trans people are cringe because they pretend to be something they're not. but a man who openly admits he's a man while dressing like a woman because he wants to, that's endearing

          So what about those who put in their bios #TransProud ?
          They openly admit they were one gender but boldly changed it.

            No no. They didn't change their gender. That's impossible. So when they claim they have, that makes them liars, which makes them no better than israelites.

    Good production values.
    You could say the same thing about both Left4Dead games.
    Valve was great at their peak.

      This is probably a big one. Compare to overwatch where the side material shows the characters as nice people with lives and the complement each other. Meanwhile the mercs in side material are legit dangerous insane people like in game.

    There is something cute and wholesome about all these characters. I can't explain it.

    It's just super genuine and refreshing. It doesn't look like they went out of their way to add every possible hair color or whatever. The team fits really well and that's that. Overwatch tries too hard by making everyone so culturally diverse that they just don't fit together.

      I always think about how the demoman became black as a great example to how diversity is handled organically compared to just doing it to do it. Since it was literally "we couldn't find a way to make a generic Scotsman stand out and he looked like groundskeeper willy, so we made him black and now it serves as a minor joke about expectations". No checkbox just creatives at work.

      Blizzard shot for superhero aesthetic when designing Overwatch, and superheroes are super colorful and diverse

      And you might not like it, but it appeals better to the newer audiences

    they're just funny little cartoon stereotypes. the banter especially appeals to people who need to insult each other constantly while playing games to defend/inflate their egos. as I've aged, I stopped thinking they were very funny except the scout for some reason.

    Aside from the fact that the TF2 mercs are just unabashedly unhinged lunatics with no pretentions behind the writing, part of the fun of the TF2 characters is that their personalities reflect how they play

    >scout is an annoying little shit
    >soldier is a dumb aggressive moron
    >pyro is a muffled tard who only knows how to set things on fire
    >demoman is a half blind, all drunk loudmouth
    >heavy is a slow witted mountain of a man
    >engineer is a coward who hides behind his machines
    >medic bemoans the fact that he heals people rather than personally hurting the enemies, but enjoys using his own team as meatshields and experiment subjects
    >sniper is a literal camper that everyone hates
    >spy pretends to be a professional but he constantly loses his composure

      Funny you mention that, heavy is actually one of the highest IQ mercs, he just goes full blood thirsty loudmouth tard on the battlefield, in every other media he’s been in he’s calm and composed when not killing

      I don’t think engineer is a coward, he’s just smart enough not to waste his life in the middle of the battlefield and use his toys to do all the work for him.
      The definition of work smarter, not harder.

    I don't think there's any Valve character that I objectively hate in terms of personality and that's probably because Valve has a strangely amazing writing team that they hardly use since they don't make as much games anymore.

    Like even their recent shit like that one Steam Deck Tech Demo Portal Game had really well written dialogue and character writing.

      Meh, they make calculatedly likeable characters. I don't think they've ever done anything ballsy with them. Nick's sexism is the closest thing, and its supposed to come across as endearing or humorous most of the time anyway. If Ellis was racist it'd be a different story.

    They are fun stereotypes with a bit of contrast to them.
    Demos a drunk demolition Scot but he’s also black and wears an eyepatch.
    Engineer is a genius builder but he’s also a huge texan boy. Which makes his relationship with spy fun as they both detest each other for being unsophisticated.
    Medic is a healer so he’s must be an empathic good guy right? Eh no, he’s a psychopath German scientist and uses his teammates as test subjects. Probably the evilest guy on the team.
    Then you have Spy who pretends to be this honorable sophisticated gentleman whose literal gameplay revolves around him backstabbing people without getting into fair fights. And then he breaks into a laughing fit, really no different than scout.
    There’s no fake niceness in the game either. Everyone’s a jerk. But when they do be nice to each other, it feels more genuine and earned.
    So I say the nice mix of contrast in the game is what makes it unique and great.

    This an Rainbox Six Siege had the best deathcams in any game, and then because developers now hate soul they actually removed it from Siege a bit ago.
