Default About Fortnite

I don't get it, why this game Fortnite (Battle Royale) is so popular? I think the player-base will get bigger than the PUBG's. Well, it's for free though and the graphics/gameplay looks kinda childish to me, or I'm really getting old lol.

For me, that game is like a parody to PUBG.

So what are your thoughts, do you play it? What do you think about it and why it's so damn popular. Or MAYBE, it's better than PlayerUnknown Battleground's?!

You can't build in PUBG, so you cant really compare them in this sense...

First of all, Fortnite is free to play.
Second of all, due to its engine and graphics, Fortnite is more accessible to people who don't have high end rigs.
These facts alone, enabled it to surpass PUBG in terms of popularity.

Just because it's popular doesn't mean it's better. They are 2 different games that belong in the same genre.
None of them is better cause each of them has is pros and cons.

At the end of the day, it's up to personal preference. The comments you get here about each of them will tell you just that (what people prefer).

That's just one feature that changes the playstyle. There are tones of differences in features that make these games impossible to compare.

The only thing they have in common is the fact that they are both battle royale games.

Fortnite and PUBG are two different games. Yes they are both Battle Royale games, but the way they play is different. I like Fortnite for it's simplicity, jump in a game and start finding weapons. PUBG is way slower when it comes to finding weapons, add attachments scout your surroundings. The quickness of a fortnite match makes it the perfect streaming game (which also explains it's populairity). PUBG is fun when it comes to a more serious battle royale with armor and weapon attachments that can turn a battle into your favour. Fortnite is just quick fun, jump in and get started, without any hassle.

That was a perfect explanation. I have played Fortnite only for few seconds and somebody already killed me. Which means, I have to spend more time in the game and master my skills. I just know, that there is some guy called "Ninja'' and he's pretty good at the game and makes load of cash of it by streaming and stuff.

Simplicity? That game is a more of a stress for me than a game to relax due to the building thingy, all the players are building around them with such a speed and I can't get used to that. That's why I don't find it a simple or fun game.

Wouldn't call it a parody, especially since it doing better in terms of popularity.
I just don't like it because it's too arcade-ish for me.
PUBG keeps a certain degree of realism. I enjoy it with all the issues is has.
