Overwatch


 

For someone who’s built his empire on innovative and original ideas, billionaire and CEO of SpaceX Elon Musk sure does have an unoriginal gaming recommendation: Overwatch. Still, if you can’t be groundbreaking, at least be right.

In an interview posted to the YouTube channel Y Combinator, Musk was asked by the interviewer to recommend a new video game to play. Musk’s response was Overwatch without missing a beat. His runner-up was Hearthstone, suggesting that one of Blizzard’s most dedicated fans is one of the wealthiest men in the world.

A handful of other games are given some love in the post-interview discussion as well. Musk apparently has mixed feelings about last year’s Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, but based on recommendations from the interviewing staff, his next game may very well be The Last of Us.

This would get the billionaire on the The Last of Us bandwagon just in time for the upcoming The Last of Us Part II.

Nick didn’t start gaming until mid-2006. Once his parents finally allowed a console into the house, it was all uphill from there. Starting out with a PS2, he grew an affinity for Sony consoles and moved on to the PS3, and now the PS4. He keeps his gaming palette wide, but, gun to his head, he’d have to say shooters are his genre of choice. Find him on Twitter @idole808
