PC Freeplay game selection is weak

I concerned about the new PC Freeplay computers, this year there was slim pickings from the game selection. No Minecraft, no Overwatch? Not even League? I've been attending since 2009, this year's selection is weak!

I'm very disappointed, I guess I should have gotten a BYOC ticket. But damn, my gf and I loved staying at the convention center until midnight. We're better off going home at 6pm and playing at home.

Can this be fixed this weekend?

    I agree with this! I was super disappointed that there was no Overwatch. My friend and I spent a max of 20 mins at the freeplay station, the selection was extremely limited.

    Some of the computers have League, but some don't. My boyfriend and I went there exclusively to play League, and one out of the three stations we went through didn't have it. We ended up trying Rocket League instead, but I agree, it's very weak this year.

    I cannot fathom not having Overwatch in the free play. That is one of the two games we made sure our entire BYOC crew had installed and updated before coming.

    It's been getting worse year over year. I remember all the way back to 2007 when some games in the Expo hall were available in freeplay. Playing them there is actually how I found one of my favorite games, World in Conflict. But they stopped putting expo hall stuff in there and it's just been kind of sad.
