    And Rein was a classic Reintard when he was younger. Charging alone leaving your teammates without shield!
    Here was a level 85 Enhancement Shaman. Now there is just an epitaph.

    He had to learn how to play Reinhardt the proper way like the rest of us.

    I love that this cinematic showed that he had to learn his lesson the hard way. That the loss of his mentor also meant the death of young Reinhardt, causing him to be reborn as the honorable protector we all know and love.
    There is a thin line between not knowing and not caring, and I like to think that I walk that line every day.

    Was nice but I'm hoping blizzard will start moving the story forward rather than making a cinematic for everyone's past. I really want to see when mei reunites with Winston and the rest

    It's amazing that I still think the most touching of the videos is Bastion lol. This felt a little bit too emotionally forced. It was still good. And still touching. and as a Rein main I was happy with it. Not their best but I appreciate the hard work

    He had to learn this lesson the hard way......

    I really enjoyed this cinematic. The arc was pretty cliché, but the final cutback to the aged, battle-scarred Reinhardt really pulled it together. He used to live for glory and the thrill of combat. War was a game to him. A dangerous game, but a game nonetheless. And when finally confronted with the consequences of his own recklessness, he is supremely humbled. Reinhardt's surrounding lore sometimes mentions how he thinks of himself as a knight of a bygone age. His cinematic is a great portrayal of his transformation, from a boy who thought knighthood was all about glory to a man who understands it is about duty and sacrifice. "Live with honor. Die with glory." Honor is the burden of the living, shown through his heroic rescue of his team. And glory is the prize of the dead, shown through the enthroned corpse of his doomed mentor. When we cut back to the present and see the grizzled old man, his answer reveals how much he has changed from the young man we met just minutes ago. When Brigitte questions him, Reinhardt's reply does not surprise us. He speaks with a simple, somber weight that we recognize, yet we understand him far better than we did before. Gone is the selfish boy who only dreamt of glory. The years have distilled him into a man who lives by simple truths, who no longer lives for himself but as a shield for others. With a character like Reinhardt it would have been easy to just give us an "epic" cinematic filled with courage and fury. Instead Blizzard gave him a delicate, heartfelt ending, and I feel more connected to the character after watching it. Why must he go? "I have been called. I must answer."

    I think my favorite of the Overwatch shorts will always be Bastion, but I really enjoyed this one. Though it was very predictable, I thought the action was fun, the animations were stunning, and the voice acting was poignant. Blizzard hasn't forgotten how to tell a good story. Every time a new one of these shorts comes out I fall in love with the world of Overwatch all over again, and this one was no exception.

It felt even more meaningful when I realized he was repeating exactly what his mentor had once said to him. Why must he go? "I have been called. I must answer."

    Was a great cinematic IMO. Also makes me want to dual wield those giant maces now.

    Adrenalin. People run marathons with broken legs under the right circumstances and i think a war will push you quite a bit.


    Also AWESOME! I played a few FFA's as Reinhardt just because the cinematic was so epic.
    Though i love it as a language, english isnt my native tongue. So all you grammar-junkies: Deal with it.

    Makes sense, really. They wanted the best of the best, and who better than the leader of the Crusaders?
