Overwatch appeals to a wider audience, with an art style that is cartoony enough for kids to enjoy but mature enough for more adult people to enjoy. Also, the lore can get darker, which a lot of people seem to prefer. And there are characters representing a ton of different nationalities and personalities, not just very japanese kids.

Overwatch also enjoyed from a much more expensive marketing campaign, with CGI cinematics and whatnot. And released on a much bigger user base with PC + PS4 + XBO, leading to naturally more sales.

Overwatch is a much better game. Splatoon only got the spotlight because the Wii U was facing severe droughts.

If Splatoon were a PS4/XB1 game, no one would know it exists.

Overwatch captured the competitive PC market that has been stagnant for years. It's insanely accessible but has an equally insanely high skill ceiling. It packs more replayable content than Splatoon, and is just overall a more complete game.

To the guy calling it trash, he's clearly being a delusional drone. I don't think any rational person can call Overwatch bad. It might not be your type of game, but the type of game it, it reigns supreme over its competition.

Splatoon is exclusive to a dead platform, where as overwatch is on like 5 platforms. You do the math.

Without going to quality, which is objective and prone to causing pointless arguments...

It is mutliplatform and accessible by far more people. Possibly also the developers were more ambitious with the scope of the game.
