Fortnite is the type of game that can be summed up into two different categorizes either you hate it or you love it. I don’t have any issue with the game it’s just not something I play at all. While the game has brought a lot of problems mostly with it pretty insane level of microtransactions and kids dropping out of school to play full time and oh yea the flossing can’t forget about how great that is. (Note my sarcasm). Fortnite actually did bring some positive things to the gaming community. I thought that while most bashed on the game it be nice to talk about a few things it brought to the table.
Something all gamers can more than likely agree to is we all have that game that multiplayer game that you and all of your friends spend your whole weekend playing together. For me and my group of friends, it was Halo 3 we used to all get-together and have all day land parties playing whatever weird maps we downloaded off of custom maps. To me, Fortnite brings that feeling back of playing not only with your friends but also playing with a bunch of random people and working together to win the match. It feels like when the mode first came out, we all came together and played something new and enjoy getting the old band back together and playing all night with your friends.
I started hearing stories people would have about all the crazy things they would do with their friends in the game in order to win and I just couldn’t help but feeling I was listening to me talk about what Halo 3 did for me and my friends when the game first came out. I feel like while other games like Call of Duty and Overwatch will always capture that feeling as well. It seems like everyone and their mother plays Fortnite, and I can see why the game runs smoothly the guns feel awesome that cartoony vibe it gives off is fun to see and, in a world, full of a lot dark and gritty games brought Color to its game in a way that works really well.
While PUBG may have started the whole Battle royal craze I think that Fortnite did put it on the map and while the community for the game may not be the greatest. The game itself is still really fun to play and brought me and my friends for a good while back together in one game as I know it brought back a lot of people together to game with their friends. That’s something I can respect in any given game that it may have taking an Idea from PUBG it most definitely made itself its own thing and took the crown away.
I may sound like I play this game a lot. I don’t play it all anymore and I do think it is a very fun game. I just feel that this game does receive a lot of hate and even though it may have a toxic community the game itself is really fun and solid to play and has brought back a lot of fun memories and made new ones for all gamers.
