    I remember when this came out and it just looking like Epic pathetically aping PUGB.

    Now you have PUGB's guy raging like an idiot and suing developers for making Battle Royal games.

    Funny shit.

    yeah, I remember when people were ripping this game mode hard. I always knew fortnite BR would grow as much as PUBG and maybe even greater.

    What's the appeal of this game? It honestly looks retarded to me. Retarded ass graphics, Minecraft building? What's so fun?

    Having there only be one "#1" brings a huge appeal to it.

    Games like CoD are more individual oriented, and you don't care for the "team" victory or goal -- rather you're chasing individual glory and more kills per death (albeit normally your individual success will likely get you more wins -- you care more about the stats than the win).

    In Fortnite, out of 100 people, you can take out 10-15 of them, but if you don't get that "Victory Royale" at the end, the game almost seems wasted. Since the game is more victory-oriented, there's more tension.

    A huge advantage it has over Call of Duty type shooters is that every game, the guns you get are random and scattered and you have to take the best you can get. In CoD, once you level up, you have a large advantage over lesser-leveled players as you have access to start out with better guns (the meta at the time normally). In Fortnite, all accessories and pre-game setup have ZERO affect to the gameplay, all cosmetic only.

    Personally, it brought gaming back to me because of the squad games. It's the first time I've consistently gamed over 10 hours a week since maybe middle school/freshman year of HS -- talking to my friends, whether it's banter or serious engagement towards winning, it's a pretty solid game.

    The graphics aren't that great mainly because there are almost cartoon-like physics along with a rapid/panic-mode building system.

    Everybody plays this, just give it a try and don't get mad when you get killed.

    °The graphics are stylistc in that they are cartoony. It's unique at this point because most shooters aim for a much more ralistic approach. The graphics over all are lower quality than they could be, but graphics =/= gameplay

    °The building is not like Minecraft at all. Everyone says that by default because they think "Building? Oh like Minecraft? Hah! Must be a stupid game"
    No.
    The game's building mechanics consist of placing walls, roofs, stairways, and pyramids, all of which are made of wood, stone, or metal. The different materials have different build speeds and durability. The different types of buildings are helpful for a variety of situations. Of you and your squad some of the last people alive and you have a good, cleae position? Build a fort and defend it. It helps provide cover and adds a unique quality to the game. Not to mention that all buildings you or your friends make are able to be edited to fit different situations.

    °The fun is going head-to-head with a bunch of other people in a big challege to survive until the end of the game and get a Victory Royale. You can be sneaky and hunt enemies down carefully, play defensively and build a fort, or just charge anything in your path. The game has randomly spawning supply drops and has three llama piñatas that spawn in random locations. They provode lots of ammo and materials to help in your quest for victory.

    So give the game a try if you want an idea of how good it really is.

    I'd give it a solid 8.5-9/10. Let's keep in mind that this game is still in development and that the Battle Royale mode is only one thing the game has to offer. The Save the World mode is currently early access and you need to pay to be able to play that mode. However, it will be free and fully released sometime this year.

    Also, shooting is more realistic than other FPS. The drop and anticipation is actually done well.

    Yep. Though I say Planetside 2 is superior in that aspect.

    Sniping in Fortnite is kind of awkward for me because the bullet seems to arc a bit instead of just dropping lower and lower as it progresses.

    Interesting, I probably won't get it, but it does sound interesting.

    Really? It's on the PSN store? Is it a microtransaction mess like Battlefront 2?

    yes
    It's free to play on Playstation 4 (no PS Plus required), Xbox One (XBL Gold required), PC, and mobile devices. AND it's cross platform with the exception with PS players playing with Xbox players.

    Microtransactions don't affect gameplay.

    There are microtrans, but none are forced. Slightly advertised, but nothing that'll affect your liking of the game.

    All micro-transactions are cosmetic only, no affect to gameplay as blakstealth just noted
