  1. Competition is nice but too much creates saturation

  2. you forgot mgo, it had the classic battle royal even before minecraft

  3. This video was so good! I always knew that battle royale genre was inspired by hunger games but I didn't know battle royale (japanese movie) existed and now I want to see it. Also the minecraft survival games were intense af.

  4. Damn if the hunger games movie was never created there would be no minecraft hunger games, fortnite etc.

  5. your video is incomplete without COD: call of duty

  6. DayZ is really the first.. atleast how battleroyal games are played today

  7. I totally agree with you, but you forgot to add Unturned arena mode , it was ine of the first games where players developed a battle royale concept.

  8. But then an unexpected contendant to the throne appeared:

  13. Free Fire is better than Fortnite PUBG and Minecraft Hunger Games it way popular 😎😎😎😎😎😎😏😏😏😏😏😏


  15. I remember seeing my brother play the Hunger Games on Minecraft back then. Who would have thought it be this big lol.

  16. Lots of countries are banning these types of games acting like saints and saying that these games are too " violent ". Bullshit, these are games we are talking about, maybe you should've thought of that when your country took over other countries and murdered millions of innocent people. (I don't have to say which countries did thesr merciless killing and conquering, they know who they are.)

  17. Minecraft is not a battle royale
    You can make one in the game, but game itself was never meant to be a battle royale
    (grammar fix)

  18. is this guy high? battle royale was on arma 2 loooong before dayz
