How Video Games Advocate for People with Autism

Video Games: What inspired Overwatch?

What inspired Overwatch?

Overwatch creators had a vision. They want to create a game everyone from all walks of life can identify with. They wanted people to feel like they belong no matter how different they felt like they were. That’s why they wanted such a unique and diverse group of heroes. One percent of people in the world have autism, and 30 million people play Overwatch. That means that there could be 300, 000 people with autism playing the game. That’s 300, 000 people who can directly identify with the heroine, Symmetra.
