I don't think this game is technically out yet, but I'll probably forget to mention it when it's official. I did not expect to play Fortnite at all. The concept just seemed too complicated to be fun, but I am one of those that enjoyed the full Fornite experience thanks to an invite from Battle Royale.

Creative origins aside, Battle Royale is my current favorite version of the game genre that took over in 2017. It all comes down to fun factor and replayability, and the combination of style and arcade action kept bringing me back for memorable solo failures. Plus, when I start to question my shooting abilities I can always go build some trap filled forts and use some zombies for target practice.. Thanks for sticking with it, Fortnite.
