1) Fortnite is objectively a much higher quality game than PUBG ever was and most likely ever will be. I play neither and I can see why someone might prefer the aesthetics of PUBG, but Fortnite's technical superiority is unquestionable.

2) Fortnite is one of the most successful and profitable games in history and its growth isn't slowing down.

 

Just because you don't like it doesn't mean you have to deny the obvious...

God I want Battle Royale to die.

 

I think it's more of a hope? I want it to go away so developers will stop wasting time and money on it, so they can go back to making games I actually want to play.

Eh, like what? The games industry isn't really in a great place right now, if battle royales stop being popular they'll just chase whatever the next trend is or keep trying to milk the same handful of tired franchises. Just a couple of years ago it was exactly the same with hero shooters trying to be overwatch, a couple of years earlier it was MOBAs, before that it was CoD.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Personally I'd rather go back to the CoD days.

 

At least then Battlefield was good, not ruined by Battle Royale and microtransactions.

 

We really need another gaming industry crash. Let the big companies burn up to be replaced by something more intelligent and less exploitative.

To be honest there is nothing wrong with the whole battle roayle hype with developers. As long as you are not interested in this topic, it shouldn't bother you hearing about new game coming out. You can still play normal Tetris right? So it didn't do anything bad to you. They just took a product name and used it for marketing. I just can't see why people complain about all the BR games.

This is the issue with the games industry, they just chase trends and due to the nature of length game development, most of the trend-chasing games come out after the phase has died down. Look at HOTS for example, not to say Heroes of The Storm isn't a fine MOBA in itself but it's gradual downfall is simply because they entered the market too late. Either way, there's going to be an array of trend-chasing games for whatever the next phase is, it's inevitable.

Man HOTS still boggles my mind. DOTA was a mod of Blizzard's own freaking Warcraft game, and instead of jumping right on that they do nothing and eventually, eventuallllyy get around to Heroes of the Storm, but on top of coming too late they do the stupid Blizzard trend of dumbing it down to kiddie levels for no reason whatsoever. I mean the second they lost Dota 2 to valve they should have immediately started their own and released it in like two months, even if it would have gone against the Blizzard perfection mantra. oh well

Yeah, it lasted surprisingly long considering how late to the market it was. Although I'm not sure I agree with you point about dumbing it down. Maybe it didn't work in HOTS but I think it's a formula that's worked for Blizzard in the past. From my understanding, World of Warcraft became such a phenomenon because it was a more casual MMO while still being very polished and complete. People were saying the WoW was casual compared to other offerings but in the end it became the most successful title in the genre by far and it's competition came and went.

 

I think the main issue again, they were too late, if anyone was interested in playing a MOBA by the time that game launched they were already playing either League of Legends or DOTA 2.

WoW is even more dumbed down now than it was when it first came out. It had the Blizzard perfection meaning it was easy to play, made sense, and didn't suck, but the WoW developers have said in some uncertain terms "the players aren't smart enough for this" multiple times

 

HOTS was always considered the kiddie version of the MOBAs. There's no items to worry about or buy, no complicated build orders, just 3 or 4 skills to pick from in a very short 10-20 minute game when compared to Dota's or LoL's 90 minute or more games. It might have seen more success if they didn't sit around doing nothing while league of legends was doing to gaming what fortnite is doing to it today
