I was watching a stream of Octopath Traveler earlier by Alanah Pearce (Aussie gal who is currently between jobs after recently resigning from IGN and starting at another company) and someone made a funny comment that there was finally a gaming stream that wasn't Fortnite.
I found it a bit unrelatable for myself as the game has hardly infiltrated my life.
I also find it funny when parents comment in online news articles on how they've never seen such bad language and addiction to a video game like what their kids have with Fortnite and it's the worse this sort of behaviour has ever been. Clearly they've never seen kids play CS, COD or LOL before. I'd love to see their reaction to teabagging though.

I played Fornite for a few weeks with some mates shortly before the Battle Royale mode was added.
It was fun for a time but the poor card drop rates made me feel it was a tedious and unrewarding grind so once the gameplay became stale there was nothing to keep me playing. That mode is now called Save The World.
I don't have any interest in Battle Royale games and Fortnite didn't change that.
Fornite's Battle Royale is free, extremely accessible, will run on almost any PC and has cross platform play so I can see why it is popular with younger gamers.
Style over substance at its finest IMO.

I think it could be fun, just can't find anyone to play it with.. it's definitely not fun solo, I'll give you that much.
PUBG is much better, even when it comes to just finding people with mic's to chat to.

I only play Save the World, and nobody's ever talking about that bit when they talk Fortnite anymore.

Mate, you just need to come to Brissie and make friends with some of the Lions players... they all seem to play Fortnite. Skip to 3:50 and 6:40:

After hearing about Epic's recent fortnite comp, that Mexico vs Portugal soccer match from the Simpsons comes to mind. You know... "Halfback passes to center, back to the wing. Back to the center. Center holds it. Holds it. Holds it."
