What do you think about Fortnite?

Hello, I wanted to ask all of you what you think about Fortnite? 

In my opinion, It's amazing, there's endless fun, and they always add updates atleast every week or so. Which is amazing to have a game that's consistently having something new. I also love the fact how many people are involved in this game. Each round can take up to atleast 30min, it helps get stuff off your mind, it's very competitive, and most of all, very fun to play with friends or just solo.


Let me know below what you think about Fortnite!
I hope you all have a fantastic day!!

    I don't. Battle Royale games are not my cup of tea. But have fun and enjoy!

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    Overall, bad for the gaming industry. Like WOW many years ago, when one game is overwhelmingly popular with the mass market, it encourages every other developer out there to "chase the rainbow."

    Would not surprise me to see Madden NFL or FIFA Soccer add a BR mode in the near future.

    OK, silly example, but you get my point. Too many other BR games are either being released or the mode is creeping into such as recently occurred with Ashes.

    Fornite must be a good game in some fashion, else it wouldn't be as popular as it is. Not my cup of tea however,  just as I prefer large, thick novels to short stories, I like my games to be large, involved, and more of a never ending story than a 30 minutes one and done experience. 

    Finally, perhaps it's a bit overblown by the press, but my perception is Fortnite is over run by hackers, cheaters, and really, really boorish behavior which the Devs aren't able to get a good handle on bringing under control.

    If true then I have to view Fortnite, PUBG and the like as yet another cesspool in the gaming industry which we could well do without.

    Final verdict, BR games should probably DIAF.

    I think we are about to witness the bursting bubble of BR games, those that arrived late to the party will probably lose the most, as for games like BOPS4 i think they may learn to regret replacing the single player campaign with a BR mode. Although i have to say, if all the BR games failed tomorrow it wouldn't affect me at all, same with MOBA's as i am not into those types of games as they offer too little in terms of gameplay that would make them interesting. ;)

    Doom(93), Doom2, Quake, Quake2, Quake Arena, Unreal, Duke Nukem 3D, Serious Sam, Counter Strike, etc... All games where a player spawns in a predefined map, collects weapons and ammo, and kill other players. In Fortnite you can choose your spawning spot and maps are bigger and more open than usual, everything else is the same old.

    Every generation needs their MOBA game. I had lots of fun playing Doom and Quake deathmatch but it got old very quickly. Nowadays the genre can't hold my interest longer than a few minutes, if even that.

    So what do you guys think that CoD BO4 Black out and BFV will give fortnite a tough competition or these 2 new games don't have any problem with Fortnite?

    There is no competition, Fortnite si free, CoD and BF not, it's more like competition between CoD and BFV and winner will do fine next to Fortnite and PUBG :)

    I played it in the fall of 2017 and a little bit at start of 2018, so a bit back. I enjoyed it, great game, but I don't have the time to be good at it, and when there's no skill matching, it's not that fun for me. So I don't play it anymore.

    Not for me. Too childish with too many younger kids screaming in mics. Just couldnt do it personally. The costumes, skins, dances, ect, just turned me off. I enjoy a more realistic feel to my games.

    I see how and why its so massively popular considering what it is and what you can do in it but it never appealed to me. Hell, id probably love it and get addicted if i gave it a chance but I just dont want to.
  • UngoodUngood Member RarePosts: 1,526
    like many of these games, the are all just Shooters.. which is not engaging to me.

    A MOBA like Eternal Crusade, which had a solid balance between Melee and Ranged, is a far better and more enticing game to me.

    Fornite kinda sucks.  Realm Royale is a much better Battle Royale game .. well, it also sucks, but it sucks a lot less than Fortnite.

    Poor naming of games. I guess OP means Fortnite Battleroyal, but the actual Fortnite with the coop PvE was there first, as buy in alpha access. Then the devs discovered they could attract a bigger crowd and more money with Fortnite Battleroyal. The alpha version of Fortnite has progressing very slowly. Not much communication from the dev team. That plus the itemization combined with micro-transactions has me not logging for a 7 months or so?


    Fornite Battleroyal is a great game. Free to play, just skins and gimmicks in cash shop. Fast paced, fun to watch. People complain that there shouldn't be dominant games, but that's hogwash. Someone has to raise the bar. Now Fortnite has set the bar, I'm waiting for the next game that will set it even higher. Just enjoy the game or pick up a game you do enjoy.

    Minor correction..

    Fortnight is not really a better game then any other game, it is the style of the game that is attractive, so, it's not really raising the bar as much as it is setting a trend for that kind of game.

    Just like other games set the stage for MOBA's, MMO's, Survival Games,  and the like.

    and I agree fully with you.. we do need these kinds of trend setting games to come out and break the monotonousness of the genre.

    Sincerely, I have never been conquered by this game. I tried to play a few times but I quickly stopped because the concept did not really attract me, plus it's not really my kind of games

    I was going to come in to say, "I don't think about Fortnite," but you beat me to it.

    It's a social media platform that disguises itself as a game. The gameplay itself is mediocre, it's just fun to be there.

    I agree with you on this because Fortnite is for free and these games are quite expensive, PUBG will have a tough time

    I do think about Fortnite, it's on giant billboards in my city after all, but I could not care less.
