Why won’t TF2 Die?

Why wont TF2 Die?

Team Fortress 2 is far from dead. Team Fortress 2, or TF2 for short, is a shooter-based video game from Valve. It has existed for 14 years and is going nowhere. Some call it a “Timeless Masterpiece.”


TF2 is most notable for its characters: The Scout, Soldier, Demoman, Pyro, Engineer Heavy, Medic, Sniper, and Spy. Many players started playing because of the “Meet the Team” videos released by Valve. These “Meet the Team” videos introduced us to the nine characters listed above. They showed us the team’s personality and skills, practically inviting us to play.


This game has been around since 2008 and still has an active community. Its last update and comic was in 2016, and people still love it! But why won’t this game die? Well, this game is very different from others. Its characters are very unique, while other games like Overwatch struggle. Medic, a character in TF2, and Mercy, a character in OverWatch, are often compared. It all boils down to two things: Personality and backstory. Medics’ personality is very complex, while Mercy only wants to be a healer just for the sake of helping people.

TF2 is also less competitive. It allows there to be friendly players (Friendly). One friendly can make the entire server friendly, and most players won’t even complain! Games like Overwatch and Bedwars (Minecraft Minigame) have no way to be friendly. Overwatch is too competitive and doesn’t have any function to be friendly. Bedwars from Hypixel does have a way to be friendly: Spam crouch and right click, but Bedwars is also too competitive because the only way to win is to act aggressively.


As one Youtuber put it: TF2 has a perfect balance of movement and weapons. Most of the weapons are balanced perfectly, so if you’re in a corner and about to die, you could still win the fight because of the way the weapons are made. If one character isn’t the right one for you, you can choose another and have the most fun you’ve had in a while, it’s mostly about personal preference. Most games confine you to one character, and sure Overwatch has way more characters, but they’re mostly for combat, and you can’t really have fun while trying to kill everybody.


Even if you don’t like the game, we can at least agree it’s one of a kind. This game achieved something that can’t be replicated.
