so can you clarify: are you not going with the vague "they sorta-kinda map vaguely to Overwatch dudes" or are you zoomed in on the details? Or are you giving some critique of DD?

It's kind of annoying how far people here stretch to avoid the obvious interpretation that the Dads are stereotypes of urban gay subcultures (rough, goth, bro, conservative, hipster, geek, and bear) with a multi-ethnic twist. The alternative interpretation is to shoehorn Dream Daddy into Overwatch or yaoi, which have completely different stereotypes going on. For a space that's supposedly into awareness of tropes, there's a lot of missing the obvious going on.

EDIT: I agree with another poster that it's an awful lot of "people with the same skin tone look alike." It's the only thing that Hugo and McCree have in common in terms of design.

No one compared McCree to anyone?
