Fortnite is the free to play game that has now taken the world by storm.It is hard to go a few days without hearing some news related to the game.Even people who do not normally play video games are talking about how they want to play Fortnite.
It would be easy for gamers to feel a little slighted that Fortnite is getting all this attention, compared to other great games.But I will admit, Fortnite got me to love gaming again!
Fortnite – One Of the Best Free Games
The beauty of Fortnite is that it is a free to play game. There is no need to make any purchase, whether someone wants to play the game on their phone or computer. It is a simple download on iOS and computer platforms, while it is coming to Android too.
And in some ways, Fortnite shows that lowering the barriers of entry to gaming is the right approach. Not only is the game still making hundreds of millions through in-game purchases, but it is now a cultural phenomenon. People around the world are obsessed with this game.
Fun and Easy to Play
I was first told about Fortnite many months ago by a friend. I decided to give it a try, even though some of the videos I saw were pretty silly. During my first couple games, I was a little underwhelmed, but then I started to take the game more seriously.
I learned the various controls and I decided that I wanted to improve. Within a couple days, I was obsessed. I could not stop playing this game. I was even asking my friends to download the game so we could play together!
Solo and Team Play
Fortnite is one of those rare games that you can enjoy just as much alone or by playing with friends. Since so many people can easily play this game on consoles, computers or smartphones, getting friends to download the game is easy. And then it is possible to play in teams of four, with the goal of being the last team standing.
But individual play is just as fun. It is a little more intense, as there is no way to get protection from the others in the game. But it is a great experience. I will admit, I have easily spent three or four hours some days playing solo Fortnite missions!
The Game Everyone is Talking About
Fortnite is more than just a game these days. It is a part of culture, which is a testament to its impact.
For me, the game has helped me fall in love with gaming again. I was jaded by a few of the $60 games that I purchased over the past year. I was still having some fun moments with those games, but I felt the value proposition was not great.
Fortnite is the best value game I have ever played. I have not spent a single dollar on this game, but I am having more fun than ever!
