Even as an FPS, Overwatch has many elements which hearken to fighting games. For instance, Doomfist's abilities, while initially cool-looking, are more suited for a fighting game than one where characters hurl projectiles at each other.

Fortunately, a video made by TGN imagines Blizzard's online multiplayer as a fighting game, and thankfully gives Doomfist his time to shine. Taking cues from Mortal Kombat, the video comes with a fatality move, a character select screen, some trash talking at the start of a match, its own "Toasty!" reference from Jeff Kaplan, and even a bonus round where you'll see Doomfist punch a vehicle until it's wrecked.

The creators commented that it took them a long time to make the video, which really shows given that the result is a convincing recreation. Watch it below and see for yourself.
