If you’re an Overwatch fan, keep your eyes peeled for Elon Musk


What if Elon Musk, the closest thing we’ve ever seen to a real-life Tony Stark (or a super-villain, should he decide to turn even), was a gamer? Oh, wait, it seems like he kind of is. And, in a recent interview with Y Combinator’s Sam Altman, Musk has given out his gaming recommendations. The very first, given without hesitation, is Blizzard’s excellent shooter Overwatch.

Elon Musk has been a fan for quite some time, playing on the PC (because of course he does). What we don’t know is which character he favours, but there’s speculation that he’s fond of Winston. Not for any concrete reason, just because.

Musk doesn’t stop at Overwatch enthusiasm, however. His kids spend a lot of time playing Hearthstone, another Blizzard title, and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided gets a kind mention as well. Not quite as kind as the original Deus Ex does but that’s Elon’s gaming cred (and love for a genuinely amazing PC game) speaking.

If you have twenty minutes on hand you can also check out the full Y Combinator interview with Elon Musk, which is titled How to build the future. As with most of Stark’s Musk’s interviews, it’s worth the time investment.
