Elon Musk somehow finds time to play Blizzard's Overwatch, and he loves it

If you thought that running two multi-billion companies, doing tons of conferences and launches and the occasional tweet-spree makes one too busy for gaming, you were wrong. Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX (and the chairman of SolarCity), just publicly professed his love of Blizzard's FPS timesink Overwatch on Twitter. 

In a tweet late Sunday, Musk said he "highly recommends" the game if you like "ultrafast team FPS action." In a reply, Musk also said he plays on a "PC, of course."

Overwatch is Blizzard's multi-player, cooperative shooter, released in May 2016 after a long beta period. It's the company's first original title in decades, in a somewhat unlikely genre (Blizzard is better known for its World of Warcraft MMORPG and Starcraft RTS games), but hey, if Musk can bend his busy schedule to play it, how can it be bad?

Then again, Musk is known for his crazy time schedule and the ability to go on little sleep. In May, he said he's spending an "enormous amount of time" on Tesla's production line, and that he often sleeps in a sleeping bag in a room adjacent to the production line. 

His commitment to working insanely long hours has been documented in his biography, written by Ashlee Vance. The book, Elon Musk, was published in May last year.
