Fortnite: I Cant Stand Battle Royale?
Just to be clear, this post isn’t aimed at Fortnite alone. but it also targets other games that have battle royale elements embedded
in them, for example, PUBG & the highly-praised Apex Legends ?. But to be fair, I have a strong bias towards single-player
games like Horizon Zero Dawn, Uncharted and all other games that have nice Stories. In addition, I also enjoy playing
games that are designed to punish the player such as Sekiro and Bloodborne. And the reason I play these games is because of
the feeling you get after beating a boss that defeated you sixty-eight times in a row? (check out my Bloodborne review).
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that Fortnite, as well as other Battle royal games like Apex Legends, are bad but the hype that
continually surrounds them baffles me to no end. That’s why I am going to destroy the Hype by listing out two reasons why I
personally can’t stand Battle Royale games. And those two reasons are
No Friends, No Fun
No Friends, No Fun
Since I already mentioned I have a bias towards Single Player games, you already knew this was coming. But to be honest, I’ve
never considered a game to be Fun and Exciting if I can’t enjoy it alone. If I must have friends at all times to appreciate a game I
paid for by myself, then that game can NEVER be considered fun??♂️. Some might make the argument that Fortnite has a Squad
mode so you don’t need to have your friends online before you could enjoy the game. But I disagree. I rather play on my own than
play with a bunch of random players that have no idea what’s going on. Moreover, since the game is called a “Battle Royale game”,
it won’t be fun at all if you win with a squad consisting of 16 players. To explain my point further, let’s take a look at another
game we all Love called Destiny?. To be honest, I would pick Destiny over Fornite as well as any battle royal game??♂️. And
that’s because when it comes to a game like Destiny, there are other game modes that can be enjoyed without the company of
friends e.g. Strikes and Daily story/ Heroic missions. The argument I’m making is you will always have fun when playing
video games with your friends. However, if you’re a gamer like me who enjoys playing by himself, you will never have fun playing
a Battle Royale game like Fortnite. Moreover, another reason why you won’t have fun playing by yourself is due to the
Inconsistent gameplay new gamers go through when playing Fortnite.
Now I’m sure most of yall are scratching your heads and wondering what I mean when I say Fortnite has a Bipolar gameplay?.
Well, this phenomenon occurs when you win a game (while playing with your friends) but then after, you end up losing the next
5-7 games. Another example can be seen when you initially hop out the Battle Bus and you die the moment you touch the
ground. But what makes this game TRULY BIPOLAR is the fact that each time you die, the game comes to an end. Thereby,
respawning you back to the lobby. Meaning you would have to wait a while before hopping into another game. This
inconsistency is what turns some players off. It’s understandable that every game takes a while to get used to it. This signifies
that in order to become a pro in any game, you would have to go through inconsistent moments of wining as well as losing to
get a feel of how the game works. But this is not the case with Fortnite??♂️.
You see, other games like Destiny that have multiplayer components are designed to keep you in the fun. This means even
though you may win once and lose several times, you’re still engaged in the Action because when you die, the match doesn’t end.
You could respawn back in 5 seconds and keep on going. On the contrary, since Fortnite is a “battle royale”, the moment you die
the game is over. Meaning you would have to wait a while before getting back into another game. Consequently, giving it an
inconsistent and bipolar feel. Which proves my point of why I can’t take it anymore.
My Final Thoughts
Of course, It’s obvious I’m being very Subjective when explaining why I can’t stand Fortnite as well as other Battle Royale
games. It’s quite clear Epic games has succeeded in making a product that attracts millions of players around the world?. (250
million to be precise). In addition, more people find Battle Royale games to be the new wave of gaming, which is sad for Lone
Wolfs like me?. Don’t get me twisted, I understand how it feels when one becomes the last man standing in an arena littered
with people ready to kill you at a moment’s notice. However, these facts can’t stop me from speaking out on how the battle royal
genre has become a Pandemic in the gaming society. That’s why Gamers like myself need to join the fight and speak up in order
to purge this plague called Battle royale✊?.
But that’s just my Opinion/Rant?. let me know what you guys think about all this. Do you think Fortnite, as well as other Battle
Royale games like Apex legends, should cease at once? Or your part of the majority that enjoys fortnite and wish games like these
become the new standard in Gaming. Moreover, if you’re into Elite anime artifacts, check out my reviews on Ezcosplay, Slick wraps, Jlist and Right stuff anime to get the best anime merchs online!! Also, if you’re into Sleek looking wireless earphones,
