Merged many fortnite threads and renamed this one!

To prevent that this forum is spamming by too many fortnite threads, I have added the ones to one and do it for another threads they follow.

I'm sure we all know what Fortnite is if you don't you've probably been living in a hole for the past 3 months. Fortnite has stormed the gaming world with over 30 million players and a peak player count of 1.3 million, no-one and I mean no-one expected it to reach these levels. It is a free-to play game and over half of it's users are school children. Personally, I played it and got bored of it straight away because of the poor bullet registration and unbalanced guns. So, I put the question to you is it overrated?

I think all the battle royale games are great as the genre of pvp really appeals to me. For me though there is no best they all suit a purpose for me

The best part about fortnite is the building aspect and quick games and the guranteed weapons in literally every location (never feel hopeless)

I love pubg for the realism and better feel but sometimes the map can be just too big and alot of games are boring for the most part (I'm looking at you desert map )

Yesterday and 2 friends were playing on the desert map, landed in pecado and for legit 20 minutes we saw absolutely no one and got top 10 then killed 2 guys and thats it.

To me Fortnite has replaced H1z1 because the only reason I still played that sometimes was if I didnt want long games of pubg.

It's very overrated but so it' PUBG. Graphics and gameplay seem to go downhill these days. There are games out for 10 years with better controls and less bugs. I dont mind playing indie games (stardew anyone) but please work out your problems before releasing a game.

Not overrated, it's catering to a different type of player inside the batte royale franchise. Games are short, there's a more wacky style of play and in general I prefer it. And while not strictly related, Fortnite didn't start life as a battle royale game, it has a base game that got extremely repetitive but was enjoyable for a while.

I would personally say that Fortnite is a more enjoyable game for me than PUBG and a lot of people would agree. Plenty would disagree. But it's not overrated. The entire battle royale genre is really popular right now and most people are playing either PUBG or Fortnite.

It stormed the gaming world because it is free. It wouldn't done that well if you had to actually play it. Either way, Fortnite isn't very appealing for me.

It's just one of those fad games really, like Pokémon. The popularity is of course helped by the fact that it's free and uncomplicated, it's fun but it's not an amazing game however you look at it. H1 and PUBG would have reached the same level of popularity if they also were freely available to the console kiddies.

In Fortnite, you can't aim down sights. I can't stand not knowing exactly where I'm going to be shooting, so I'll always consider this game to be overrated.

I played it a little bit but didn't really enjoy it and stopped. I can see why people like it though as for a free to play game it is actually quite well designed, and the fact that it is much cheaper and more accessible to a wider audience then PUBG probably helps make up for the player growth and increase in popularity.

It's a much more casual game which is easier making it more accessible to a wider audience. In my opinion, PUBG is a much more well presented game, even if the graphics can look sub par due to the lack of optimisations. PUBG has much more depth than Fortnite BR which is a big plus for me but the learning curve and lack of tutorial really hinder it.

You also have to note that Fortnite has a much larger development team than PUBG making it less buggy and more optimised.

As countless people have said, you go with PUBG to get a more "realistic" feel of a survival shooter with depth and Fortnite if you are very casual about the games you play and just want to blow off steam.

Ehh, I might have considered playing it before people got really popular. I play a lot of BR (1k hours on Arma and PUBG BR). Fortnite has a learning cliff when it comes to muscle memory for building and different strats. PUBG is far more simplistic and aim orientated.

Plus, who plays TPP BR? FPP is so much better.

Fortnite's developers are constantly adding things into the game. It isn't pay to win either, and has potential. I love the building controls and games are often pretty enjoyable. The game overall is meant to have some humour. Only downside is when they try to change something in the game, sometimes they crash the game and it takes forever to come back online, or the social option may not work, but the developers are always online and post constantly on twitter when this happens, to update the users.
