Matt Shiflet

My name is Matthew, and I’m an avid gamer. Video games and writing are my two passions. After graduation, I plan to enter the gaming industry as a news writer for a gaming trade publication or a public relations specialist for a publisher. I enjoy playing many different genres of games (though I'm horrible at RTS and brawlers). I try to diversify what I play so I can take in many different ideas, cultures, game and art designs, and aspects of gaming to appreciate it better. I’m a thinker, I love to learn, and I'm here to bring you the latest news and share my opinions through the occasional editorial.

Competitive Overwatch Needs to be Fixed

I love Overwatch. I gave it a 9.5/10 when I reviewed it last year, and it turned out to be one of my favorite games of the year. I particularly love how competitive the game is, despite (or maybe thanks to) the fact that there are no weapons or perks to unlock based on level.
