I used to play Fortnite religiously 🤣🤣 I’m glad I got out of the game to be honest. I’m enjoying games like gta or house of ashes now. Great games😁
Ninja rn: 👁👄👁
Babe, wake up, new upload from Dr. Demonic
Good video bud love the videos and I suck at them too lol
Meanwhile Fortnite: we know we got battle royale but at least we have creative mode.
Omg what a great video
I totally agree with you. I used to play pubg but after a while it got super repetitive and boring.
I suck so much at Battle Royale shooters. I need to be able to respawn several times before I can ever get a kill lol. However, I do very much like Battle Tetris Royale, even though I've only won 5 times.
Honestly I think you’re point are a good example of why specifically Fortnight is an example of a good battle royal, due to the building mechanics and them not being RNG based it puts way more control back towards the player, another thing that it has done very efficiently to stop the middle point boredom is to make the point of interests be not too far away and giving a massive pool of mobility tools.
They got too boring eventually they just died personally and I’ve noticed that many of the games have just got too stupid and ridiculous.
real gamers play minecraft hunger games
My main flaw, with battle royale games is loot boxes. Electronic Arts. I don't mind customizable characters, personally, mostly because I've played a plethera of LEGO games and created 15 Sonic OC in Sonic Forces.
I agree with you I hate battle royal and call of duty war zone they suck
Thank you. I feel like im the only one in my friend group feels that BR sucks.
They definitely Get repetitive but games like apex with ranked it really works with competitive players who don’t have to invest all there time into a game like destiny to stay with the games (season model) the part that keeps it fresh is obviously the devs but also the learning aspect of the game and with apex specifically most guns are very balanced so it makes rng less of a thing so the majority of the issues with that game is 3rd party’s
Games for annoying pricks who think they're gamers
Its fine stfu games like that take a LONG time to make
no hate but you'll learn they're sweaty if you practice like me
This is why i still play League
I like battle royales, especially Apex, but I fully respect this man's point of view.
They do not suck
FINALLY, someone agrees with me!
The reason that battle royale games can't be fun is because there is no task that the game gives you to accomplish, no problem to solve, no lesson to learn. People play these games because of lack of self esteem in real life. They use these games to show others that they achieved something in life too, but in reality that something is worth nothing, because that something is just numbers on a screen.
What about mario 35
my main issue with BR games is the fact that you only have one life. If you suck like me the majority of the experience is just staring at loading screens because you keep getting forced back to the main menu everytime you die. The time spent actually playing the game is extremely minimal
Thank god! Someone feels the way I do! My buddy, plays on PlayStation and we have nothing else to play together on and these games are terrible. I'm a fairly good shot in games and I can't stand these games! If someone would develop a game that wasn't like this I would have a blast and actually have fun.
Only hackers enjoy Battle royale
Battle royals games drain the fun and energy out of multi player. I used to have fun playing Halo or Call of Duty now I don’t even want to play video games after playing apex or (insert battle royals) and either winning or getting toasted half way through. No fun easy money for developers.
I miss Titanallfall 2
Battle Royale is getting boring like I loot all cool guns after then I died what a waste of time..
I'd rather play MMORPG
50th comment hehe
Basically with Fortnite I enjoy playing with friends and just having fun but man oh man when I get the best loot and some bush camper or someone that only relies on building defeats me and all that hard work goes to nothing it kinda starts to get boring and redundant. Its a game of wasting time getting loot then getting destroyed by some twelve year old
I cant stand Battle royal games
There's a reason why the bulk of streamers and content creators solely rely on battle royale to become rich and famous, and that's because people rather watch other people play the game and be entertained by them as opposed to playing it themselves and to be entertained by the game they're playing.
How battle royal games work
Only good players can enjoy these games. the games punishes you for not being good like everyone else it's not fun to know all you can do is die when you're brand new or not good enough
Plus the player bases are so big Means endless amount of skilled players to ruin your fun and chance of victory
These games are luck base not worth the time playing.
Honestly i kinda want a br where the enemies appear as dots in the map well enemies far away from you ofc but when your near them the dots dissapear even tho their still there so you dont know where they actually are
I cursed more than in other games lol
I agree. I've only ever played a battle royale game twice. I found some equipment and just spent the rest of my time running around, looking for other players and staying inside the safe zone. Both times, I was one of the last people to die (3rd last the first time and 7th last the second time, iirc). The only other person I ever saw was the guy who killed me in my second game (the first one apparently killed me from behind). Honestly, it was a joy just to encounter someone else because I was genuinely questioning if the kill announcements were all fake and I was really the only player in the game. It's still the most bored I've ever been while playing a video game and I have no intention of ever playing a battle royale game again.
YES! Finally someone said something about running around forever mid game. It’s my least favorite part of BRs. I wouldn’t mind playing BRs even with the other bad parts of the loop if I just had more action. You feel less punished due to less time being wasted. How do we fix mid game tempo?
Well I think battle royales actually were made to be rng and chaotic and have fun and it maybe gets old after a while especially whit the focus on eSports on all these luck games.
100% facts right there
this captured every thought i had. also, i have a friend who calls himself a gamer even though he only plays the really popular battle royales (fortnite, warzone, apex) and it makes me angry. i dont classify battle royales as “real games” because you have one motive, one goal, one objective. kill everyone and be the last one standing. and also there is always always one gun or loadout that is better than the rest that makes you unbeatable basically and you always strive to get it. it doesnt make sense
Ngl, I fucking hate battle royals. I dont like how cracked out ans sweaty everyone is and since the area is constantly decreasing. It starts to limit play options. The only one that I like, if you can even call it a battle royal, is hunt showdown. God damn thats a good game.
I fuckin hate battle royale games
Yes you're right but also battle Royale games is one of the most complex games ever created it's just takes a lot of skill if you lose a battle you lose the match and you should be good at tactics reading situations.
They do suck. I like campaign. Fortnite has a mode called save the world it's really fun. No cheaters or aimbot. They only show up in battle royale.
I kind of disagree a little bit with the whole "being killed from somewhere you can't see" point. First a little context though for my opinion: I'm a person who enjoyes hardcore milsim type games, especially the likes of ArmA. So my opinion might vary from the more "mainstream" crowd.
One of the greatest things to experience in battle royale (in particular arma 3 BR) is sneaking into a strategic position, using Binocs to locate targets, then picking them off before they even know you are there. Annoying to get killed this way? Yes! However, in my mind, it just means the enemy had better positioning and tactics than you, not that the game or genre fucked you over.
If fortnite offered any other game mode, I would be inclined to try it out, because I love 3rd person shooters and actually like the art style. But battle royals just strike me as a huge waste of time. Why spend all that time in queue, navigating the map, looking for loot… when I could just play a traditional death-match style shooter and do the fun part over and over without having to queue and gear up again.
