These are just the Heroes that Aylah typically chooses. There are many other Heroes to choose from. Aylah typically does the quick matches. Though playing against AI tends to be a bit easier, Aylah enjoys the challenge and competition of playing against other real live players. She gets very excited when her team wins, though she really hopes she gets the title of “Play of the Game” at some point.

Check out Aylah’s game play of Overwatch!

This game is equally fun for kids and adults, and I am impressed that my young daughter has surpassed her father’s level in this game. There’s no real story in playing this game, it’s more about teamwork, competition, and collecting loot!

Stay Nerdy!
