What is this Fortnite Craze?

 

 

Cordova, TN; August 27, in the year of our Lord 2018--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is exploring what makes Fortnite so popular. If you are like me you might be scratching your head at so many people playing and becoming addicted to Fortnite. Why is this game so popular? Isn’t Fortnite just another online shooter that has been overdone in the video game industry? Isn’t Fortnite just another repeat pay to play video game that millions of gamers have rejected? What is it about Fortnite that has teenagers playing over and over again? Are there aspects of Fortnite that would interest your family? I hope to answer as many of those questions as possible.

Fortnite is available across multiple platforms. It has become a very popular game because so many Youtubers and Twitchers are sharing their gameplay. Fortnite is part Minecraft and part shooter. The bright and colorful graphics make it more approachable. There is no blood in this THIRTEEN and OLDER ONLY ESRB rated video game. The in-app purchases in Fortnite are cosmetic only. Meaning the gamers who hate paygates come to a game like Fortnite instead. There are multiple and different ways to play Fortnite. With each new season comes new content and sometimes modes in Fortnite. Each game in Fortnite feels different. There is dancing and traps in Fortnite.

Fortnite has become a cultural phenomenon. How long will it last? How many clones will appear in the near future? I do not have answers to those questions. I can see why Fortnite has become popular among so many of the teenage gamers. I have never personally played Fortnite. I have watched my teenage boys play it. I understand the concepts behind this game. Fortnite is sort of like The Hunger Games in the odds are never in your favor. You may never win a fifty man battle royale in this game. Many people get addicted to trying over and over again. Getting to craft items after acquiring resources is pretty cool. Setting traps, putting up walls, and more make Fortnite more realistic. A lot of teenage and adult gamers have fun playing Fortnite. Will I ever play it?

NOTE: There was a physical copy of Fortnite available that is extremely expensive to purchase since it was discontinued. Hopefully it will return to the physical copy realm in the future.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.


God bless,
