TF2 did not launch with the payload mode. That was a later edition and they copied it from Wolf:ET.
...right. Payload was added in April of 2008 to TF2, about 7 months after TF2 released. But you are missing the point. The point is Overwatch is launching in 2016, in a post-TF2 world. The bar has been set WAY higher because TF2 has been out for ages.
Also...your claim about Wolf:ET also misses the point completely. The point: Overwatch's Payload mode has been done for YEARS and is STALE. Bringing up Wolf:ET doing the Jeep escort mode just makes Overwatch's lack of innovation even worse.
Why do you defend a barebones game release? I suggest we have higher standards rather than let Blizzard put out a lazy game with game modes from 2008 or earlier. So what if they have shiny and cool characters? The GAMEPLAY is what matters.
