Informative video. Still,i'd recommend every new player to actually use gyro controls. It may feel weird at first but actually makes aiming much easier. If you don't use gyro aim you are putting yourself at a competitive disadvantage. I think it's great that nintendo nowadays gives you the choice to turn motion controls off. I just hope that people don't reject it on site because you pretty much handicap yourself by playing with analog sticks

This motion control garbage was really ruining the experience for me. Like I feel like as a new beginer that just started playing Overwatch i was really getting beat up bad in the game cause I was forced to keep the controller so still without moving it at all but, that only made the game so difficult cause if you moved the controller just a tad your character would completely aim in the opposite direction causing me to get killed countless times. This was super stressful but, I'm glad I can finally turn motion controls off for good. There should never be a competitive online first person shooter game that has you using motion control.
