This man forgot UNTURNED Arena Mode.
you forgot mgo, it had the classic battle royal even before minecraft
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.
Damn if the hunger games movie was never created there would be no minecraft hunger games, fortnite etc.
your video is incomplete without COD: call of duty
DayZ is really the first.. atleast how battleroyal games are played today
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.
Minecraft can be anything
H1Z1 is legend
But then an unexpected contendant to the throne appeared:

HUNGER GAMES ON ROBLOX CAME OUT 2 YEARS AGO BEFOR THAT MINECRAFT SHIT.
I remember seeing my brother play the Hunger Games on Minecraft back then. Who would have thought it be this big lol.
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.)
Minecraft is not a battle royale
You can make one in the game, but game itself was never meant to be a battle royale
is this guy high? battle royale was on arma 2 loooong before dayz
Arma 3 battle royal was elite
In roblox, there are only a few games that is related to the hunger games and if you wanna go on roblox and want to play those games. Then these are the games to you 🙂
Pubg im the most popular game RoS can i copy😂😂😂
Where the heck is tf2
Pretty sure the first battle royale game was actually Pokémon Rumble
Its FFA (Free-for-all)game mode but big map
The 1st Battle Royal game was Metal Gear Online 2's "Stealth Deathmatch" mode.

OG people: Haven't heard that name in a long time
To me the first battle royal was twisted metal
The game that started br is metal gear online. Know your gaming history people look it up.
Lmao Battle Royale ahahahahha ahahahaha this isn't anything new. Not to mention its possibly the lamest style of game ever. A trend that will come and go. I doubt any of these new games will have the longevity. They will come and go in drones. Lol
