Team Fortress 2
This legendary game was a precursor to Overwatch, and set the bar for the entire genre of multi-lane FPS games. In Team Fortress 2, you pick from one of the numerous classes, including the stealthy spy, the manic pyro, and the war-grizzled soldier, among many other tank and support classes, each with their own specialties and place on the battlefield. This game is slightly more cartoonish than Overwatch, with a smaller array of heroes, but as soon as you jump into play, you will see exactly why so many people loved this game before the days of Overwatch.
