Tesla and tech mogul loves 'Overwatch' just like the rest of us

Tesla and tech mogul loves 'Overwatch' just like the rest of us

Elon Musk, co-founder of Tesla, CEO of SpaceX, Hyperloop visionary and all round tech celebrity, has shared his favorite games in a recent interview. Spoiler: he loves Overwatch.

He also name checks Hearthstone, saying his kids are big fans, and he loved Uncharted 4. The billionaire is a big Deus Ex fan, although he doesn't appear to have had the time to play last year's Deus Ex: Mankind Divided yet, but says he's heard some unfavorable reviews of it.

"That's the criticism I've heard of the latest Deus Ex, that the storytelling is kind of lame," he says. "Whereas the prior Deus Ex and the original Deus Ex, the storytelling was amazing."

He also asks for game recommendations from his interviewer Sam Altman, president of startup incubator Y Combinator, and the two go on to lament the decline of storytelling generally across the medium. Someone send that poor billionaire a copy of Dishonored 2, The Last Guardian or Titanfall 2 immediately.
