I grabbed Fortnight for XB1 since it's free and in closed Beta.
Pretty darn fun. Can seem empty at times, but I really dig it. Took all the best parts of multiplayer shooters and just made a game out of it. All for yourself, all the time, to the victor go the spoils (except if you squad up).
Actually I might just grab PUBG since i think it's only $30. Just waiting to hear if they worked some of the bugginess out of it.
I can see where some other games might introduce this as a mode. I mean most shooters have a everyman for himself mode, but the scavenging, shrinking area of engagement parts I can see other games doing as well.
Imagine Gears of War, Destiny or COD with that mechanic. Insanity!
Anyways, y'all up on this? ______________________________________________________________________________

Fortnite is cool, its a bit arcade-ish than PUBG. Also while I know building things are a big aspect of it I feel like the building is too fast almost to the point its cartoonish when someone builds some crazy structure in a few seconds. I know to some people that's the appeal of it. I notice the younger folks may enjoy this a bit more, maybe the Minecraft generation.
PUBG has one major aspect that I enjoy way more and that's tension. Doesn't matter if its the very start of the match or its only you and one other person left, the game feels tense the entire time. There is nothing to build, you hide behind only what's there. I seriously feel like I'm being watched every second I'm alive in this game. I think the guns work a bit better here also. Both suffer from cheating on the PC. I've played Fortnite and saw someone straight up stop and look at a wall I was behind then run through and turn and shoot like they knew I was there the entire time even though I was standing still. I also loaded PUBG up and have the house textures not load. This resulted in me being able to see straight through everything. Granted that was more of a glitch and not a cheat I think a while back PUBG banned close to a million accounts that set off its anti cheat alarm.
