Mild violence and slight behavior change, but great overall
The main point of the game, Overwatch, is to be able to work as a team to defeat the enemy team in a certain objective. After months of playing this nonstop for a few months, because this game is addicting (Consumerism), I have become very competitive on this game. This has changed my behavior with the game - angrier and more judicious of how others do things, because people don't know how to play the game, even in competitive mode - and has caused me to *attempt* to swear at my team. Yes, attempt to. In the Xbox and PS4 version of the game, players are usually not connected to the voice channels, thus making communication between players nonexistant. (Be careful if you're on the PC version, because it's much easier to voice chat here) Next topic Marker..... Though, Blizzard has made a decent solution to this; a wheel of communication, where players can say "Group of with me!" or greet them, etc. So, I can still somewhat communicate with my team, despite me not being able to use voice chat. Next topic Marker..... Overwatch is very mild on the violence compared to other titles similar to it; While you are still killing each other on the battlefield, no blood is ever shown, unlike games like Battlefield. Next topic Marker..... If you were to play in the game, you would know that there's this system of "Loot Boxes," where you can open these up to get 4 random items. In a way, this is gambling. I have heard many stories of people buying 50+ loot boxes at once and spending a ton of money, so be careful if your child has your credit card information. They might buy some without you noticing. Next topic Marker..... In the lore of Overwatch, (youtube.com/users/playoverwatch), many characters are looking towards justice (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwFu8kEsUW4) and others look to disrupt them. The good people, as we shall call them, are very positive role models because they are basically your fairy tale "Heroes," they're the teacher to the student, they're the Romeo to the Juliet, etc. Children can always look up to the "Good Guys" of this game. Despite the choice of character design.
